Republican Minds Flooded With Abortion

Normal homeowners insurance doesn't cover flooding.  But you can buy flood insurance compliments of the US government.  At least you could until senator Rand Paul (R-Ky) attached a "life begins at conception" amendment to the flood insurance bill.  The "fertilized egg is a person bill" would ban all abortions and many popular forms of birth control- the pill and intrauterine devices.  This bill failed a referendum in Mississippi by 16 points last November.
Hurricane season is upon us. Homeowners whose homes occupy low-lying ground must be delighted that republican obsession with abortion, and the ultimate philosophical question--when does life begins, takes precedence over mundane matter like government assistance to rebuild flooded homes.
