keyboard champs supporters of Brendan Boyle think that using harsh rhetoric about their horse in the PA 13 Democratic Primary is equivocal to the rhetoric coming from the Tea Party, but one thing Forced Birther Brendan Boyle has in common with the lunatic fringe of the Republican Party is his support for anti-choice TRAP laws, which have closed women’s health clinics around the Commonwealth.
Colleen Kennedy from Keystone Politics has covered this issue and has written:
The legislation was proposed in the wake of the release of the Gosnell grand jury report, which details the horrific environment women endured just to terminate their pregnancy. Typical of any legislation coming out of Harrisburg, it lacks any connection to the real root causes that caused this monstrous nightmare for dozens of women in West Philadelphia.
Legislators did not study the issue; instead, they reacted and hoped that their actions would be politically popular with voters witnessing the grand jury report on the national 24/7 news cycle. Their shortsightedness has resulted in five closed clinics, and as Rachel Maddow reports, a woman may now face fifteen years prison time thanks to these closings.
It was only a matter of time for one of the Democratic candidates to call Boyle out on his Forced Birther vote, and that candidate was Val Arkoosh.
