Meanwhile, in North Dakota, life officially begins at conception (you remember conception; it’s when the sacred seed of life enters a lady and spreads Jesus around inside her tummy.). So sayeth a nice piece of misogynist, uterus-colonizing legislation that passed the state House of Representatives yesterday, 61 to 31. If the bill passes the senate, abortion providers in ND will have to inform their patients that abortion is the termination of a human life.
“Sponsors say its intent isn’t to ban abortions, but rather to decrease the number of them,” says a Bismarck TV station.
I’m too sure.
Republican Representative Chuck Damschen, pretending that he thinks that women’s suffering is a bad thing that can be abated through legislation limiting their personal sovereignty, is quoted as saying “If it prevented even one woman from having an abortion, and suffering remorse from it later on, it would be a good bill.”
What is with this national obsession with decreasing the number of abortions? You expect this line from the godbag right, but more and more frequently the left, including the “feminist” president, are joining this constant “reduce abortions!” refrain.
Hey, lefties! The godbags are getting in through the chinks. You’re letting yourselves get all emotional about blastocysts. At this rate, you might as well just concede the point that abortion is murder and be done with it, fools.
More abortions, fewer abortions — what’s the diff? The numbers are irrelevant. Either women are human under the law or we’re not. If we are human, and not just meatsocks for incubating the heirs to patriarchy, the number of abortions performed will reflect exactly the number of abortions required. The North Dakota lege’s transparent attempt to guilt women into carrying unwanted pregnancies to term by convincing them that they’re committing murder whenever they have parasitic growths removed from their personal internal organs is bogus to the max.
Also bogus to the max is this dimwit politician’s faux concern for women’s suffering. You wanna mitigate women’s suffering, Representative Chuck Damschen? How about rape prevention legislation? Money for battered women’s shelters? Birth control programs? Equal pay? Decriminalizing prostituted women? Health care? Quit trying to commandeer our uteruses, you fucking knob.
Women without access to safe, legal abortion are slaves.
