Members of the South Carolina State House are considering a bill that would make a woman who has an abortion
in the state eligible for the death penalty
The “South Carolina Prenatal Equal Protection Act of 2023
” would amend the state’s code of laws, redefining “person” to include a fertilized egg at the point of conception, affording that zygote “equal protection under the homicide laws of the state” — up to and including the ultimate punishment: death.
The bill was authored by Rep. Rob Harris
, a registered nurse and member of the Freedom Caucus; it has attracted 21 co-sponsors to date.
Mastriano lost the governor election last November by a huge margin. He's unelectable but GOP primary voters are going to vote for him anyway:
The Colorado GOP’s Slow-Rolling MAGA Suicide
A MAGA lunatic who tried to legally add “Let’s Go Brandon” to his name now leads a decaying state party.
Is Ron DeSantis Flaming Out Already?
The Florida governor has a plan to win the Fox News primary—and lose everything else.
eSantis is a machine engineered to win the Republican presidential nomination. The hardware is a lightly updated version of donor-pleasing mechanics from the Paul Ryan era. The software is newer. DeSantis operates on the latest culture-war code
: against vaccinations, against the diversity industry, against gay-themed books in school libraries. The packaging is even more up-to-the-minute. Older models—Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush—made some effort to appeal to moderates and independents. None of that from DeSantis. He refuses to even speak to media platforms not owned by Rupert Murdoch. His message to the rest of America is more of the finger-pointing disdain he showed
last year for high-school students who wore masks when he visited a college.
The problem that Republicans confront with this newly engineered machine is this: Have they built themselves a one-stage rocket—one that achieves liftoff but never reaches escape velocity?
