“I stand in the rich legacy of individuals like Roger Williams, a one-time Baptist and the founder of Providence Plantation which later became the state of Rhode Island, who declared in no uncertain terms that the violation of a person’s religious conscience was nothing less than ‘the rape of the soul.” – Union University professor C. Ben Mitchell at House Republican hearing
Covering contraception is soul rape,
Said the God-fearing man with the mike.
Republicans have finally found a kind
Of rape they really don’t like.
Thank God that regular old rape
Doesn’t affect a woman’s soul.
But God forbid she might be given
Access to birth control.
