Women, We Are Fucked

When I read The Handmaid's Tale in high school, it seemed like science fiction.

Take a close look at the language of this decision. Here's the ugliest part:
Proposed amendments to the law to create exceptions to specifically protect the health of the mother, or in cases of rape or incest, were voted down. Also defeated was an amendment to put the proposal in the hands of voters.

I'm sickened and speechless. Aren't there laws against hate speech? I find these sentences are more mysogynistic than all the bitch-n-ho rap songs ever sung: they seethe with greater sadism than Jack The Ripper.
