The official platform of the party is pro-life without exception. So ladies, if you're raped and your rapist impregnates you, don't look to the Republican Party for any sympathy. Under their bullshit, you would have to bring your rape baby into the world and raise it yourself, or put it up for adoption and hope that the kid actually finds a family.

you that they're not bullshitters.
Ted at Country Thinker is right: the Republican Party is irredeemable. There's no going back from here. The Party defrauded the Maine primary, and now they are making sure that several voices in the party are stifled. And for what? Unity?
If you're a moderate Republican, you need to do what the party is telling you to do and GET THE FUCK OUT. NOW. The party no longer represents mainstream Republicans, and it no longer bears any qualities that could be considered akin to representative government.
What you have to realize is that no one president will ever actually destroy the country. They might make things worse, but America will endure. The question is not whether you wish America to endure--because it will--but what you want that America to look like in the future.

opinion and pushed for ideological
Fear and blindness. Fear of the alternative, and blindness to contradiction. Those things are what keeps the Republican Party together these days, and if you can't buy into either of those, well then you just have no business being in the Republican Party.
Join me and others like Ted and Rational Nation USA in abandoning the party.
