The Vagina Ideologues

Oh joy, rapture and crapture!  More excited delirium from the “Government-Small-Enough-to-Crawl-Up-Your-Vagina-and-Police-Your-Uterus” crowd:

Conservative Arizona lawmakers hope Arizona will join a handful of other states in banning most abortions after 20 weeks of gestation, as proposed in House Bill 2036.
House Bill 2800, which would strip Planned Parenthood of federal funds for health-care services, is still alive.
And then there’s House Bill 2625, which would allow companies to opt out of covering contraception in their health-care plans for religious reasons.
But with all this, at least one lawmaker doesn’t believe Arizona has yet gone far enough.  […]

Meet Rep. Terri Proud (R-Batshit), Arizona:

The e-mail, which has not been edited, does appear to be sent from state e-mail address. It said:
“Personally I’d like to make a law that mandates a woman watch an abortion being performed prior to having a “surgical procedure”. If it’s not a life it shouldn’t matter, if it doesn’t harm a woman then she shouldn’t care, and don’t we want more transparency and education in the medical profession anyway? We demand it everywhere else.
Until the dead child can tell me that she/he does not feel any pain – I have no intentions of clearing the conscience of the living – I will be voting YES.”

What’s next?  A law mandating that a woman must have an abortion before having an abortion??

Fetus fetishists are all inherently anti-woman, but it’s been my sad experience that there’s no fetus fetishist more viciously misogynist than the zealous young female variety, and Ms. Proud certainly perpetuates that stereotype.  Her words are disturbingly reminiscent of videocam-wielding anti-abortion authoritarian Lila “Abortions should be done in the Public Square” Rose, a young woman who wears her loathing of her own sex on her sleeve and makes a good living at it in the Abortion Shaming Industry financed by the religious right.

I’d like to consider this story to be just another chapter in an ongoing series chronicling spittle-flecked anti-choice insanity, but that would imply an eventual conclusion, which is something I’m not so sure of.

    This is all getting so insane in the States that i have developed a theory (ahem) on why it is occurring…
    Sperm-wise, white males seem to be going down the tubes (I will try and control myself) for the last decade…they just aren’t producing the little ghostly swimmers in the vast numbers that they used to…(a vas deferens from other groups…ooops! snuck another one in!)
    Perhaps this is panic time for those of the pasty races who realize, between the closet cases, Billy-Bobs marrying cousins and their own weak members (can’t help it!) there is little hope for their protestations of the superiority of the white race, etc etc… (at least when it comes to ‘aliens’ crossing man-made borders, and who, annoyingly, have no trouble breeding at all…)
    In their existential terror, these old shriveled (!) legislators must feel that their only hope is to force the women who, illogically, are willing to share their beds, to breed, breed, breed and somehow change Mother Nature’s ironic decision to make that impossible…

    “Personally I’d like to make a law that mandates a woman watch an abortion being performed prior to having a “surgical procedure”.

    Okay, so following that logic when can we expect legislation requiring all politicians proposing “tough on crime” legislation to spend a week in jail and a week riding around in a patrol car. Or those demanding welfare cuts being forced to live on welfare for three months. Or those in favour of declaring war or invading or launching air strikes on some other country to pick up a fucking rifle and lace up a pair of boots and lead the assault themselves.

    Okay, so following that logic […]

    There is your mistake right there, the assumption that people of this particular stripe follow or care about logical thought and consequences.

    Debate, argument, discussion are all just a little too “Liberal” for their tastes. Why debate when you have the infallible (inflatable?) Jebus on your side whispering nothing but the righteous truth in your ear?

    That said “truth” happens to mesh with the views of white dudely society is but a mere coincidence…

    😆 Or those who favour the death penalty… 😯

    It seems that Republican dumbness knows no bounds.

    Indeedy. For people who yammer on endlessly about personal responsibility, the fatuous freaks who make up the most recent incarnation of the GOP don’t seem to think things out to logical conclusions, which would be the first step in taking responsibility.

Wait. What?
