The Washington Times Daily - - Politics -

“What are they? Women, or are they men with breasts?”

And so said Penn­syl­va­nia state Rep. Ba­bette Josephs, a Demo­crat from Philadel­phia, in de­scrib­ing Rep. Kathy Rapp and other fe­male Re­pub­li­can law­mak­ers who co-spon­sored a state bill that would re­quire women to un­dergo an ul­tra­sound 24 hours be­fore an abor­tion.

GOP women are act­ing like women only in the sense “that they will do what the men tell them,” Mrs. Josephs told a crowd as­sem­bled for a Lan­caster County Demo­cratic Com­mit­tee rally at the state cap­i­tal on Mon­day.

Sen. Jim Demint was a speaker at the “Hands Off My Health Care Rally,” which was or­ga­nized by Amer­i­cans for Pros­per­ity and 21 in­ter­est groups.
