That One's Easy

Attractive, Young, White Middle-to-Upper Class Woman = Sheep

Unattractive, Older, Poor and/or Minority Woman = Punishable. Hang the murdering slut. Preferably live during Primetime.

Thank You, and please tune in FOX News again at 11.

Or, according to

Or, according to Napoli:

Christian virgin who gets raped *and* sodomized (as bad as it can be!)= exception to the law.

Everyone else= sluts who couldn't keep their legs shut & need to be punished.

Zero tolerance

Alas, in a zero tolerance law, these exceptions cannot be made.

The example given above is the my-daughter exception. It personalizes it.

If the someone I don't know gets pregnant by rape, the the abstract law is called upon.

If it is someone I know, the situation is no longer abstract.

The example puts a "face" on the victim.

P.S. Who or what is Napoli? I Googled it and the hits were about Naples.

Bill Napoli is the Senator

Bill Napoli is the Senator for South Dakota. He was interviewed last week about SD's new anti-abortion law, and specifically about the fact that they were not going to allow exceptions for rape or incest.

When Napoli was asked if there were any circumstances under which he would consider allowing a woman to terminate a pregnancy, he replied:

"A real-life description to me would be a rape victim, brutally raped, savaged. The girl was a virgin. She was religious. She planned on saving her virginity until she was married. She was brutalized and raped, sodomized as bad as you can possibly make it, and is impregnated. I mean, that girl could be so messed up, physically and psychologically, that carrying that child could very well threaten her life."

So you see, there can be exceptions to zero-tolerance laws - in this case, it's Bill Napoli's idea of a worthwhile woman: a young Christian virgin who hates herself for being raped. Or is it just the fantasy he's been jerking off to for the last 50 years?

Do you feel sick? I do.

My suspicion is that those

My suspicion is that those folks secretly want women to die in illegal abortions. Such is their vision of "life."

I have absolutely no doubt that that's exactly what they want - and I won't be surprised if they make sure that pictures of the victims of their new laws, a la Gerri Santoro, make it into the media, too: what fabulous PR for their cause! They want women to be too damn terrified to try to control their own lives, and because they know that the idea of imprisoning thousands of women was never going to be popular with the masses, what better way to do it than to disseminate gruesome images of the victims of back-alley abortions?

They are remarkably ugly people.

Give us strength.

I want an island with pizza service

because I can't live here anymore, but am not willing to give up pizza.

Ohio's bill has no provision even for LIFE of the mother- because, as you know, the whole "pregnancy endangering life" is a myth that radical feminists spread. Another politician who knows better than doctors. They also make it a felony to go to another state to get an abortion. So much for State's Rights. So if I reach a border and am pregnant, do they assign me a 'buddy' to make sure I don't abort? How is this different from the Handmaid's Tale?
