National Republican talking points leaked to Vice News show that lawmakers are preparing to defend Alabama’s draconian abortion ban by arguing that it is better “physically” and “psychologically” to deny abortions to victims of rape and incest.

The document was distributed by the Republican Study Committee, a conservative caucus that includes about 70 percent of House Republicans.

The memo offers “messaging guidance” on “our pro-life platform” and instructs members on how to defend Alabama’s abortion ban, which bars abortion during all stages of pregnancy unless the mother’s life is in danger.

The bill makes no exemptions for victims of rape and incest.

Under the law, doctors could be sentenced up to 99 years in prison for performing an abortion.

Students for Life President Kristan Hawkins told NPR that Republicans should not be “afraid” of “talking about rape.”.

Planned Parenthood joined the American Civil Liberties Union in filing a lawsuit challenging Alabama’s abortion ban, which has not yet taken effect, on Friday. »

In a separate video, settlers can also be seen throwing rocks at nearby Palestinian homes while four Israeli soldiers stand idly by. »

Americans who believe that faithful believers in God receive financial rewards are less likely to have started their own business, according to new research that examined the impact of the prosperity gospel.

In our study, we ask: Do prosperity beliefs make people more likely to think and act in entrepreneurial ways?”.

Perhaps prosperity believers are more innovative in their existing place of work than are persons without prosperity beliefs,” Dougherty said. »
