Choice for me but not for thee

Whoa, this is what’s known as uuunnnnnnnncomfortable! It turns out that after all their deranged shrieking and jabbering about abortion, the Republican National Committee’s own health care plan covers it, and not just for “health of the mother” situations:

The Republican National Committee’s health insurance plan covers elective abortion – a procedure the party’s own platform calls “a fundamental assault on innocent human life.”

Federal Election Commission Records show the RNC purchases its insurance from Cigna. Two sales agents for the company said that the RNC’s policy covers elective abortion.  [...]

According to several Cigna employees, the insurer offers its customers the opportunity to opt out of abortion coverage – and the RNC did not choose to opt out.

But rank and file Republicans said Thursday that the policy should – and would – be changed.

I wonder how many furtive little abortion claims have been processed by RNC members in the 18 years that the policy has been in effect.  We’ll never know… or will we?  BWAHAHA!

    Eighteen years ago. Hmmmm, lemme see. Wasn’t Bush 1
    the president then and didn’t he also start bombing
    the daylights out of a place in the Middle East?

    And who was Chairman then? First it was Lee Atwater
    a latter-day convert to Catholicism when he realised
    his brain tumor was terminal.

    After him, it was Clayton Yeutter.

    Awful people. Awful party. Awful and deliciously ironic
    contradictions in the insurance and party policy.

    A “pro-lifer” wants an abortion from the clinic she pickets daily? Let her die in a back alley. They should receive the same compassion and care they have for others.

    I agree 100%. If a fetus fetishist wants an abortion in secret while she tries to keep others from exercising the right, hand her a coat hanger and tell her it’ll be really secret if she does it that way.
