Why does God hate women?

Don't answer that; I already know.

Rorschach at No Capital points us to this charming story:

Nicaragua last night voted to outlaw all forms of abortion, including operations to save a pregnant woman's life, after a campaign by the Catholic church.

The main political parties supported a bill establishing jail sentences of six to 30 years for women who terminate their pregnancies and doctors who perform the procedure.

The proposal was fast-tracked through parliament in the run-up to a presidential election next month, prompting accusations that it was an opportunistic vote-grabbing ploy.

Hmm. Looks like Nicaragua is taking its cues from its fat, hulking neighbor to the north.

More of this atrocity here.
