Abby Johnson, an anti-abortion activist who spoke last night at the Republican National Convention, has urged a return to what she calls "household voting" -- meaning that wives should obey their husbands on all decisions related to politics.


Last spring Johnson tweeted that she "would support bringing back household voting." If spouses happen to disagree, "Then they would have to decide on one vote. In a Godly household, the husband would get the final say."
