Kristen Schaal doesn't think hard-earned tax dollars should go to women who have only been rape-ished. (5:15)

SHOW.

WE TURN OUR ATTENTION NOW, IF

YOU PLEASE, TO THE NEWLY MINTED

HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, WHERE

THE G.O.P. RECENTLY UNVEILED THE

HIGH SCHOOL ANTICIPATED

FOLLOW-UP TO THEIR REPEAL THE

JOB KILLING HEALTH CARE LAW ACT.

IT'S CALLEDLET "NO TAXPAYER

FUNDING FOR ABORNGZS ACT."

IT SEEKS TO UNDO A

LONDONSTANDING COMPROMISE THAT

ALLOWS FEDERAL FUNDING FOR

ABORTION IN EXTREME CASES LIKE

RAPE.

IN THE NEW BILL, FEDERAL FUNDING

FOR ABORTIONS WOULD BE LIMITED

TO CASES RESULTING FROM WHAT

THEY CALL FORCEABLE RAPE, WHICH

COULD POSSIBLY EXCLUDE RAPES

WHERE WOMEN HAVE BEEN DRUGGED OR

WOMEN WITH LIMITED MENTAL

CAPACITY, OR STATUTORY RAPE, OR

RAPED.

FOR MORE ON THE LEGISLATIVE PUSH

TO CLARIFY RAPE WE'RE JOINED BY

"DAILY SHOW" SENIOR WOMEN'S

CORRESPONDENT, CRISTEN SCHAAL.

>> HALLELUJAH!

BY PROPOSING THIS LEGISLATION

REPUBLICANS ARE FINALLY CLOSING

THE GLARING LOOPHOLE IN OUR

HEALTH CARE SYSTEM

( LAUGHTER )

YOU'D BE SURPRISED HOW MANY

DRUGS UNDERAGED OR MENTALLY

HANDICAPPED YOUNG WOMEN HAVE

BEEN GAMING THE SYSTEM

( LAUGHTER )

SORRY, LADIES.

THE FREE ABOGGS RIDE-- ABORTION

RIDE IS OVER

( LAUGHTER )

( LAUGHTER )

>> Jon: CRISTEN, THE NOTION

OF LIMITING FEDERAL FUNDS FOR

ABORTIONS OF VICTIMS OF

FORCEABLE RAPE, ALL RAPE IS BY

DEFINITION FORCEABLE.

>> JON, I'M NOT COMFORTABLE WITH

THAT WORD "ALL."

IN TRUTH, THERE'S A WHOLE

RAINBOW OF RAPE COVERING A WIDE

SPECTRUM OF GRAY AREAS, LIKE

STATUTORY RAPE, SOMETHING WHOOPI

GOLDBERG EXPLAINED IN THE ROMAN

POLANSKI CASE.

>> HE'S A WONDERFUL DIRECTOR BUT

HE DID RAPE A 13-YEAR-OLD CHILD.

>> HE WAS NOT CHARGED-- I KNOW

IT WASN'T RAPE-RAPE.

>> SEE?

THERE'S RAPE, AND THERE'S

RAPE-RAPE.

OKAY?

PLYING A 13-YEAR-OLD CAN

QUAALUDES, ALCOHOL, AND A FAMOUS

PENIS ISN'T RAPE-RAPE, IT'S JUST

RAPE-ESQUE.

AND SHOULD SHOULDN'T BE

COVER-UPPED, ONLY RAPE-RAPE.

>> Jon: ONLY RAPE-RAPE IS

COVERED.

WHAT OTHER NON-RAPE-RAPE-BASED

ABURKESES WOULD BE COVER-UPPED

OR NOT BE COVERED I SHOULD SAY?

>> GIVE ME A HYPOTHETICAL.

>> Jon: ARE DRUNK WOMEN WHO

ARE RAPED COVERED?

>> WELL, WERE THEY DRESSED

SHUTE?

WAS IT A BACHLORETTE PARTY,

LOCAL BAR?

I MEAN...

>> Jon: DOES IT MATTER?

>> YES!

BECAUSE THAT DETERMINES WHAT IS

RAPE-RAPE AND WHAT IS MERELY

RAPE-ISH, AND I DON'T THINK

HARD-EARNED TAX DOLLARS SHOULD

GO TO WOMEN WHO ARE ONLY BEEN

RAPE-ISHED.

>> Jon: WHAT IF YOU'RE DATE

RAPED?

WHAT IF YOU'RE RAPED BY A

FRIEND?

>> AH!

THAT'S CLASSIFIED NOW AS RAPE

WITH BENEFITS.

BY THE WAY, HOLLYWOOD, IF YOU'RE

LOOKING FOR YOUR NEXT BIG

ROMANTIC COMEDY, YOU CAN'T DO

ANY BRNL THAT.

BETTER THAN THAT.

>> Jon: WHAT IF THE WOMAN

IS UNCONSCIOUS?

WOULD THEY COVER THAT?

>> THEY'D LIKE TO, JON, BUT IT

MIGHT NOT BE RAPE.

THE WOMAN MIGHT BE HAVING A

RAPE-MARE.

THE IMPORTANT THING IS CONGRESS

IS REDEFINING RAIN TO PROTECT US

FROM THE WORST KIND OF RAPE.

>> Jon: AND-- AND WHAT IS

THAT?

>> MONEY RAPE.

>> Jon: WHAT IS MONEY RAPE?

THAT'S FORCEABLE TAKING OF

TAXPAYERS' MONEY TO PAY FOR

ABORTIONS.

THEY HAVE NO SAY IN THE PARTY.

THEY JUST HAVE TO LAY BACK AND

TAKE IT WHILE THEIR BANK

ACCOUNTS ARE VIOLATED OVER AND

OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

>> Jon: HOW MUCH MONEY ARE

WE EVEN TALKING ABOUT HERE?

>> WELL, IN 2006 ALONE, FEDERAL

FUNDS HELPED PAY FOR 191

ABORTIONS FOR VICTIMS OF RAPE,

INCEST, OR WHEN THE HEALTH OF

THE MOTHER IS AT RISK.

SO THAT WORKS OUT TO... .2 OF A

PENNY PER TAXPAYER.

( LAUGHTER )

>> Jon: KRISTIN PEOPLE'S

TAXES GO TOWARDS THING THEY

DON'T BELIEVE IN ALL THE TIME.

I DIDN'T SUPPORT THE IRAQ WAR

BUT MY TAXES STILL HELPED PAY

FOR IT.

>> THAT'S WAR

( LAUGHTER )

>> Jon: REALLY?

BECAUSE I REALLY THOUGHT THAT

IGHT HAVE JUST BEEN WAR-ISH?M

( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE )

( LAUGHTER )

>> JON!

THERE'S NO SUCH THING AS

WAR-ISH.

YOU'RE NOT MAKING SENSE.

CLEARLY, YOU'VE BEEN TRAUMATIZED

BY YEARS OF MONEY RAPE.

LOOK, I KNOW IT HURTS, BUT IT'S

OKAY TO TALK ABOUT IT.

>> Jon: KRISTIN, I'M FINE.

IT JUST DOESN'T--

>> SHOW ME ON THE PIGGY BANK

WHERE OBAMA TOOK YOUR MONEY FOR

ABORTIONS

( LAUGHTER )

>> Jon: KRISTIN I DIDN'T--

>> RIGHT HERE?

NO?
