GOP blocks bill against child marriage


On Thursday, the House voted on a bill to combat child marriages as a human rights violation. You'd think nobody would oppose this bill - but with the modern Republican Party around, guess again.

The bill failed to pass because almost all Republicans voted against it.

Nice to know the Republicans support child marriages. Then again, is it surprising? It's been obvious for 20 years that their party leadership thinks children are property, and I think they even touched on their hostility to children's interests in the '92 campaign.
