Reproductive Services clinic in Harlingen, Texas, which performs about 1,500 to 2,000 abortions a year.

Free Market Capitalism at it's finest. Whelp, you got what you wanted, Rederplicans. You got to "pretend to stop the murder!". Only now, you're one step closer to murdering women and those unborn sacks of cytoplasm you value so much, but view as punishment for being immoral and loose once they're out of the biological incubator.

Remind me, again, how much higher the death rate is from ectopic pregnancy in those wonderful countries with bans on abortion, again?

Dear GOP:  If you want to see less abortions (a goal I would say most of us have), don't farking oppose contraception and stop pushing abstinence only education!  Think of it from a business perspective, for insurance companies, rubbers and pills are an absolute STEAL of a bargain vs. the cost of adding another human to our ranks.

Safe, legal, rare.

Those women deserved to die for spreading their legs, don'tcha know?

That's clearly what Republicans want for Texas women.

I'm sure they mean well.  Or at least, I'm giving them the benefit of the doubt.  But that certainly IS the vibe they give off.  Formerly, as a man it was none of my business.  Now, as the father of a daughter, women's rights ARE my business.  I would NEVER want my daughter to be in a situation where she would be considering an abortion in the first place, but I damn sure want her, and other women, to have that option available.

According to Texas law, if they get pregnant, after 20 weeks, forget it. We have just gone to Taliban Texas

Letting children live is so barbaric.

Most terrible defects can't be detected prior to 20 weeks. Why do you want children to needlessly suffer then die anyway? Is it to please your god?
 
2013-07-16 04:09:40 PM  
I haven't really paid that much attention to it, but the big conflict I kept seeing is that they want to make it illegal after the 22nd week.  Correct me if I'm wrong, but that's pretty much the halfway point of the gestation, isn't it?  How long does it take to figure out that your pregnant and you might not want it?  Just a question.

I returned to central TX after living elsewhere for close to two decades. I love it here, it is my home, Aztlan. The politics of this place, however, might be more than I can stand.

I just flamed holy hell out of a thread on Facebook where sanctimonious God botherers were being disingenuous assholes. One thing about Fark, it certainly sharpens your debating skills. I don't think they knew what hit them.

The white border zone is for the immediate loading and unloading of illicit abortion drugs, there is no smuggling in the red zone.

At least Rick Perry's sister is getting some government cash out of the deal, as God intended.

I guess, in Texas logic, the best thing a person can do is live their entire lives in the womb, because once you're out, fark it. But as long as you're inside the womb, you're sacred, you're perfectly ok.

Screw this, I'm going to design a whole urban community, with houses shaped as wombs. I'll be rich.

So, should miscarriages be investigated for homicide? Is that your policy?

Abortion opponents have already revealed their motives in Ireland: in a situation where either the unborn foetus will be lost, or the pregnant woman and the unborn foetus will be lost, abortion opponents want both the pregnant woman AND the unborn foetus to be lost. Their goal is to have more pregnant women die, and their claim to be attempting to protect and to preserve life is a lie.

Given current trends, I have no reason to believe that abortion opponents in the United States of America are motivated any differently.
 
2013-07-16 04:14:03 PM  
Texas only likes to kill people when they've made it to death row.  More babies = more chances.  Just sayin.
 
2013-07-16 04:14:06 PM  
When smuggling, you put the drugs in your womb because it would be illegal for authorities to check there for fear of aborting your pretend fetus and committing a crime.

Are you guys pissed because you dont know what causes pregers? Or are you just pissed because you have no sexual self control and abortion is your prefered method of birth control?

/my god people they are talking about only after 20weeks thats 5 farking months!!
//not outlawing all abortion or if life or death after 20 weeks
///personal responsibility and self-control, how does it work?

They are homicides.  If not the mother, than God.  He's killed before, he'll kill again.

I'll double down and add that the surviving fetus will have a high probability of mental disability and therefore a higher probability of being executed.

Ahh, you're definitely up for investigating miscarriages as possible homicide. Do you think we should date people's ages from time of conception?

I have observed an abortion opponent seriously suggesting that the menstrual release of all women should be examined for the presence of a fertilized egg.

Yeah, I get that.  Here's a deal I feel is very fair, though:  Keep your church the hell out of my government, and I promise I will support keeping my government the hell out of the church.  I think that's a lovely compromise.  Oh who am I kidding, it's Texas, after all.

I avoid risk of pregnancy by limiting my sexual contact exclusively to members of the same gender.

Strangely, many abortion opponents also oppose doing that. Their motivations seem entirely inconsistent and irrational.

That surprises me not in the least. It's one of my favorite tacks to bring that up to see how rabid people are about the issue.
