GOPs got rape on the mind. Again.

First they railed on gays, until many of them were proven to be gay.
Now they rail on about rape.......

I mean, you CAN'T give the kid to the rapist. That's just wrong!

I personally don't agree with this, but I fail to see how this gets the sick tag? And many women have had babies that resulted from rape, some raising them, some putting them up for adoption.

Rick Berg is a wealthy white man, he can raise the children.

What if Rick Berg was held down and anally raped by a 300 lb bear and he became pregnant with a jelly baby? Bet he'd change his mind then.

There are some, like my stepmother, who will vote Republican purely because she believes that life begins at conception. Abortion is a horrible holocaust to those that believe in this.

Which was funny, because around 1900's, science was the one who featuss were actually alive, and the church didn't believe that the soul entered until the Quickening (when the baby begins moving) It was doctors that pressed for restricting abortions, with the church defending it. Some relgions did not believe you had a soul unless you came through the birth canal.
 
2012-10-12 09:45:52 PM  
Said it before, will say it again. If you're "pro-life" and favor the rape/incest exception, why is it OK to murder a rape or incest baby but not OK to murder a baby conceived when the woman wanted to have sex?

And if it's not murder, clearly you believe a blastocyst does NOT have all the rights of a born child. Welcome to my side.

Oh, and if you're "pro-life" and you oppose charging the patient with murder, you're a hypocrite, pure and simple. All parties to a murder are legally culpable. So if a fertilized egg is intentionally kept from implanting, the woman who does it should be facing 20 to life. Why won't the "pro-life" crowd admit that?

Oh, it's simple. They're talking about people on respirators, being hydrated and fed via a tube, kept in cardiac rhythm with a pacemaker, who show no sign of brain activity. Those people should be protected until natural death.

This is what I don't understand about some of these pro-life assholes. They believe that a clump of cells that hasn't formed anything resembling a human being, is actually a human being, and killing it (abortion) should be illegal. However, once said clump of cells turns into a human being and is then born, they could give less than a 1/10th of a fark about he/she after that.

Are they trying to say that human beings are like cars, in that once you come screaming out of your mom's snatch, you begin to depreciate in value....like a car does once you drive it off the lot? The pre-born are infinitely more valuable and worthy than the already born, whether they're toddlers, soldiers, or the elderly?

I know this may sound like a stupid question, but where's the farking logic in that?

It all comes down to sticking it to Liberals and unions. That's all that matters. This is nothing more than dog-whistle malarkey to rile up the base. Tribalism at its finest.

Rapepublicans now this is getting old. ARRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGG!!!

(rant) Listen up you primitive screw-heads, abortion isn't something that slutty evil women thought up to piss of your god. It was a medical farking procedure that doctors usually recommend for a host of reasons.

Not to mention, this is an unplanned pregnancy. Which means she didn't intend to get pregnant for a number of reasons, one lack of resources amassed. Are you going to help her get assistance, pay for her medical costs or daycare so she can support herself or her child? No, I didn't think so. She's just going to be a lazy welfare mom in your eyes. You think giving birth is cheap?

It seems that the problem is even deeper than that. Children are no big deal for you, because your view is that some woman takes care of them and it's not your problem.

Just like rape, no matter what happens to her, you don't care, it's her problem to fix. God forbid if she fixes the problem in a way you don't like.

Oh and since math and science don't seem to be strong points of your kind. If you take 4 billion dollars (like say oil subsidies each year) and divide it by 16k (the average daycare worker salary), you would pay for roughly 250,000 daycare workers. Given the laws for young children, that would be 1 million babies that could be watched each year. (/rant)

What is this Republican fascination about rape?
 
2012-10-12 10:41:14 PM  
ok, well here's the thing guys...if you want to force a woman to carry her rape baby to term then you should pony up the cash to pay for ALL her medical bills for the duration of the pregnancy. also, you should help her with child assistance until the child is at least 10 years old OR you pay to help her find someone who will adopt the child.

of course, abortion would be the cheaper option....just sayin is all.

Have these guys not figured out that every time they open their mouths about rape they lose voters? God is not going to vote them into office all by himself.
 
2012-10-12 11:06:28 PM  
I remind everyone that you can still kill the child by stoning if you are unhappy. I forget which prolife republican said it but apparently according to the Bible if your child causes you distress you take them to the gates of the city and petition the elders to allow you to kill your offspring. But under no circumstance can abortion be allowed. Stoning children is fine but abortion goes too far.

Maybe so, but he's not doing his party overall any good.

These people have been campaigning to make abortion illegal for several decades now. When asked what should happen to women who have abortions, a crime equal to murder in the eyes of pro-lifers, all these guys have to say is:

"I'll leave that up to others to come up with that."

and

"Those are things that need to be worked out through the legislative process."

Spineless sacks of crap.

Some women honestly believe it's the right thing to do. I know from family experience. That's why there will never be a "compromise", since some people honestly believe ending a pregnancy is murder, and there is nothing worse than innocent child murder (those brown foreign people deserve what's coming to them of course).

So if your entire mindset is that, then banning abortion is not about womens rights at all, its about the child being murdered. And thus you can be a woman and prolife.

Not saying its correct, but I feel like both sides could at least understand each other better once they realize the entire abortion debate comes down to if you think an embryo is a person or not a person. Then all the arguments from both sides make sense.

Wasn't always that way :(. Before the president was abundant in melanin, we had 2 fine democratic senators and a democratic representative. In 2008 I was an appliance repairman who had quite a few rural routes that would take me across the central portion of this state every week. You wouldn't believe how many racist jokes and how many times I heard "I'm not voting for a ni**er".

ND used to look to Minnesota for culture, now it looks at the Nashville and Dallas. Sad.
