Sickening

The beginning of the end. Reproductive freedom was cool, wasn't it?

Yes, I know it's just one state, but as you can see, their intent is to try to push federal legislation, which will fuck over all of us, including the 50% or so of the country who didn't fucking vote for Bush, who in turn appointed his conservative judges.

Fuck you, Bush voters, for setting the wheels in motion towards revocation of civil rights. Fuck you, Democrats, for your neverending complacence. Fuck you, religious lunatics, for pushing your ancient beliefs on the rest of us.

Fuck you, pregnant victim of sexual abuse. Not my sentiment, but get used to hearing it.

Is anyone else sick of hearing about the rights of unborn children? Why does the belief system seem to be that you have every right in the world until the moment you're born, at which point you have no rights at all? I better not get started on this topic.

Yeah... we gotta protect the babies! Don't let anything happen to the babies! Because babies are such a precious commodity. Everyone knows that we have a baby shortage around here and our capacity to make more when we want them is so limited.

Oooh... I got a good conspiracy theory going here. The GOP NEEDS the babies, especially the unwanted ones, so they can grow up poor and without direction. The only viable opportunity life will give them is the military. So: save the babies, feed the war machine.

It's all starting to make sense.

totally. this is bullshit. i worked with kids of rape victims and the sexually abused. and young homeless women who became inpregnated via what was basically survival sex. who gives a shit about them? no one. the funding for my job (sexual health educator for at-risk youth) was cut at the end of last year. what a combination- take away comprehensive sexuality education AND reproductive rights!

The plan here is to have this ruled unconstitutional by the lower Federal courts, and then appeal it all the way up to the Supreme Court. We all know what just happened to the Supreme Court. So once this gets there, say, in a year or two, we all know what will happen. This is exactly what kept me awake at night after the last election... so sad, so very sad...
