10. David Cole, Arizona solicitor general, defended Arizona’s 20-week abortion ban when a judge brought up the tragic case of severe fetal abnormalities that occur later in pregnancy, saying: “That’s the woman’s problem. She should have made that decision earlier.”
9. Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) spoke bluntly about pregnancies that result from rape: “The method of conception doesn’t change the definition of life.”
8. Rep. Mike Kelly (R-Pa.) compared the no-cost birth control mandate to the September 11 terrorist attacks: “I know in your mind, you can think of the times America was attacked. One is Dec. 7, that’s Pearl Harbor Day. The other is Sept. 11, and that’s the day the terrorists attacked. I want you to remember Aug. 1, 2012, the attack on our religious freedom. That is a day that will live in infamy, along with those other dates.”
7. Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.) doubted the need for life-saving abortion care when he said: “With modern technology and science, you can’t find one instance [of abortion necessary to save a woman’s life]…There is no such exception as life of the mother, and as far as health of the mother, same thing.”
6. Romney campaign adviser Eric Fehrnstrom dismissed women’s rights as “shiny objects” used to “distract people’s attention.”
5. U.S. Senate candidate Richard Mourdock (R-Ind.) said that pregnancy that results from rape: “Is something that God intended to happen.”
4. Wisconsin state Rep. Roger Rivard demeaned women who claim they have survived rape when he said: “Consensual sex can turn into rape in an awful hurry…some girls, they rape so easy.”
3. Del. C. Todd Gilbert (R-Va.) supported forced transvaginal ultrasounds, saying: “[Women already made the decision to be] vaginally penetrated when they got pregnant.”
2. Rush Limbaugh went on a rant against Sandra Fluke for her support of the no-cost birth-control policy: “What does it say about the college co-ed Susan Fluke [sic] who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex — what does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute.”
1. Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.) stunned the country when he said this about pregnancies that result from rape: “From what I understand from doctors that’s really rare. If it is a legitimate rape the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”
Now I’ve got it in my head that:
What if the reason why there are still birth control debates 47 years after Griswold v Connecticut is because there’s a Jagrafess or other alien blocking the news sites to keep a great and bountiful human empire from happening and we just need to wait a bit for a Doctor to come sort some ish out?
Yes because when you regulate a MAN’S body it’s suddenly unacceptable and invasion of their rights by the government.
When it’s women…well…women can go fuck themselves because don’t you wimminz know your bodies are government property and totally up for government regulation?
How I see abortion debates
- Person: Oh shit, I went in the woods in a t-shirt and shorts. Now I have a tic!
- Person: Okay, so I have to pull the head off first and the body will go with it.
- Person: *decapitates tic and successfully removes tic from my body*
- Anti-Choicer: HOW DARE YOU REMOVE THAT TIC? IT WAS YOUR OWN FAULT FOR GOING IN THE WOODS WITHOUT PROTECTION. DON'T WANT A TIC? DON'T GO IN THE WOODS. THAT TIC WAS A LIVING, BREATHING BEING AND YOU SELFISHLY CHOSE YOUR BODY OVER IT AND YOU RIPPED IT APART HEARTLESSLY. WHERE WAS THE TIC'S CHOICE? WHERE WAS ITS SAY IN THE MATTER OF ITS BODY?
- Anti-choicer: *blogs about the sin of abortion and prays to Jesus*
Great picture :’)
Oh, are we making a list of things irrelevant to the abortion debate and about which no fucks are given?
Well, in that case, I’m also glad my mother chose to give birth to me.
And unlike the child in the above photo, I actually do think that and am not merely carrying a sign my parent made and then tied to me in order to use me as a piece of human propaganda.
I’m so happy my parents wouldn’t judge me if I needed to get an abortion.
Because my parents know that forcing me to give birth because the condom broke isn’t a very good reason for them to be grandparents.
You wouldn’t force a person to donate pints of blood every day to sustain the life of a person they’d never met, would you?
And you certainly wouldn’t charge her for a crime if she chose not to.
We do not force organ donations, despite the overwhelming demand; we don’t even take them from dead people unless they gave permission whilst alive.
Living, active, thinking people who are sick can only get help if someone else is WILLING to provide it.
Do people think it’s okay
womenpeople capable of getting pregnant to sustain a life they don’t want to sustain?
