After seeing this last night, I've been pondering whether prosecutors (should abortion be banned) could differentiate cleanly between performing an abortion (defendant A) or getting an abortion (defendant B - the mother), in all cases. They can't, it seems. Rachel has a valid point.
"Smaller Government" indeed.
Shrink the size of government... so they can stuff it in your vagina.
Between Krugman and Maddow the message that "Trump is only an unfiltered promoter of established Republican dogma" has almost reached the point where a significant fraction of non-Fox-ombies have come to accept that. Let's hope more folks promote this important yet obscured fact.
I'm not sure if this is what @1 is trying to say, but here's my question for the "Oh, no, we wouldn't prosecute the pregnant woman, just the person performing the abortion": So you would prosecute someone who self-induced one?
Right, just like how we don't prosecute Johns, only prostitutes. Or like how we only prosecute fences, not burglars. Or how we don't prosecute meth users, only dealers. Or...

If elective abortions are felonies ... would miscarriages be misdemeanors?

Over and over, the thing we need to hammer home is the simple fact that the other side wants to force us to give birth - all females who become pregnant, no matter our age at the time (11? 12?), no matter the circumstance, no matter if we are criminally insane, homeless, heroin addicted, already have 4 other children we can't feed, no matter that our battering husband has raped us yet again, or if we simply aren't fucking ready in any way shape or form to be a mother and it was a simple fucking MISTAKE, getting pregnant, and it's only 2 weeks out and the mistake can so easily be undone - they will not listen to nor care about ANY of the circumstances, or our preferences about our own lives and bodies. They intend to


Period. Each time. Every time.

A spectacularly disturbing notion.


Have to admit I did not know that shit in #7. That's scary.

Please wait...
