I’ve got essentially bupkis to add to the South Dakota discussion, but when a spinster aunt gets this pissed she can’t put a sock in it.
By now you have been apprised of the remarkable DIY abortion post at Molly Saves The Day. Molly gives graphic instructions for setting up a Jane-esque underground abortion clinic and for performing the procedure. It is fairly disturbing stuff. At the time of this writing there are over 200 comments on the post, ranging from “you go, girl” to “it is irresponsible to disseminate this information” to “the best way to prevent pregnancy is to stop being a filthy whore.”
The saddest comments are the ones suggesting, with touching naÃ¯vetÃ©, that maybe now legislators will see the desperate and dangerous lengths to which women are willing to go to preserve that last shred of human dignity, maybe now they will lighten up on the compulsory pregnancy routine. These comments yank my chain because they focus the glaring glint of horror on the utterly misguided and somewhat looney faith some lefties still seem to place in their jackass government. These commenters seem to be unaware that legislators do not view women as human beings. They seem to believe that the jackasses are somehow benignly oblivious to the dehumanizing effects abortion bans have on women.
The dehumanizing effects are, in fact, their whole purpose.
As to whether you’d trust the advice of an anonymous blogger with no medical background on how to rid yourself of a parasite that your fascist government views as a handy means of controlling you, I would suggest proceeding with extreme caution, but at the moment I’m more concerned with the fact that Molly’s post exists at all. When the discourse shifts from “write your congressman” to the logistics of performing homemade abortions, it can mean only one thing. The shit is hitting the fan, girls. Sitting on our butts is no longer an option. Now that the Supreme Court is loaded up with Jesus’ buttboys, the extremists have declared war. Moron Missouri’s moron legislature of psychotic morons has decided that poor people, i.e. women, shouldn’t have access to birth control, and violent South Dakota-spawned abortion bills are sprouting across the jesosphere like fungi on rotten logs after a hot rain.
See here, you misled optimistic lefties who believe your elected officials are capable of seeing reason! Your government has no love for fetuses or babies, and it never has. It has only an abiding fear and hatred of women, and a psychopathic compulsion to brutalize you when you deviate from virginmariness. Patriarchy’s desperation to subjugate you with coercion and punishment is the only explanation for these vile abortion bans. I know this because WOMEN DO NOT CONTROL INTERCOURSE.
