All your uteruses are belong to us, pt. 2

by: Eric B.

Say, I wonder what the fetus worshippers in our ongoing experiment in the Dunning-Kruger effect are up to.

Michigan is considering a bill that would ban abortion as early as 21 days after conception, often before many women know that they are pregnant, and that is the best news reproductive rights could hope to hear.

The reason why this is touted as good for reproductive rights is that it paints the fetus worshippers for what they are: Extremists who want to control womens' bodies rather than celebrate life*. I personally do not think that they care about that.

*--Once again, it has to be pointed out that life doesn't begin at conception, unless you believe that the union of sperm and egg is a process that occurs magically and that organisms that reproduce asexually are not living things.

Time for the Democrats to drop the yellow bullshit flag on the Christian Right
The Republican Party platform and most of its candidates--including its Senate candidate her in Michigan--want to ban abortion entirely. That stance is to the right of at least 80 percent of the voting population. And it will have a dramatic impact on hundreds of thousands of Michiganders.

Democrats need to stop listening to consultants who tell them "stop insulting voters of faith" and "reach out to the evangelicals." Enough of that. They won't compromise. They won't listen. They won't give up until they get their way.

It's time for an all-out assault on the Christian Right. Lon Johnson and the MDP need to get the word out to every woman in the state that the Republicans are the proverbial elephant in their bedroom, that their reproductive rights are under attack, and that the next target after legal abortion is legal birth control.

A government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always count on the support of Paul.
