"If I have to listen to one more gray-faced man with a $2 haircut explain to me what rape is, I'm going to lose my mind," Tina Fey joked last night at the Center For Reproductive Rights Inaugural Gala. We hear you, Tina! We were incredulous when candidate Todd Akin said "legitimate rape" won't cause pregnancy, or when fellow GOP candidate Richard Mourdock outdid him by saying, "I think that even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen."
Last night, Tina said, "I wish we could have an honest and respectful dialogue about these complicated issues, but it seems like we can't right now." She was also joined by Stanley Tucci, who encouraged the crowd to support the Draw the Line campaign and the Bill of Reproductive Rights, which would guarantee women the right to affordable reproductive health services including pregnancy care, contraception, and abortion. Earlier this month, we spoke to fellow Draw the Line campaign supporter Sarah Silverman. Sarah told us that "women's reproductive rights and being able to be in control of your own body. I think that's, to me, a very nonpartisan issue." Watch Tina Fey address the group at the Reproductive Rights Inaugural Gala, and weigh in on whether you support a Bill of Reproductive Rights.
