Oh wow, that's great news, I created a path to citizenship with my wife just last night!
 
2013-07-16 03:45:58 PM  
Guess you couldn't deport a pregnant illegal immigrant.
 
2013-07-16 03:48:30 PM  
That could also make any baby conceived in this country a citizen, regardless of the origin of the parents.
Anchor Zygotes!

Anchor zygotes.

Who knew the pathway to citizenship was a vagina?
 
2013-07-16 03:51:21 PM  
Hmm... so what is the law if a US Citizen takes up residence in your abdomen without your consent?

Coincidentally, the average time it takes to make an anchor zygote.

FTFY.

One day some bold Republican will have the moral fortitude to push past the "fertilization" line and declare all reproductive cells as human life.
 
2013-07-16 03:59:58 PM  
Great, these zygotes are going to get citizenship, which means the right to vote, and the next thing you know they'll be voting Democrat and the GOP will have to gerrymander your vaginas.

Interesting question. As a full citizen would you tie your age to 9 months before you were born?

Aw man, they could drink before junior year of college.  Unfair.

Will doctors have to read the Miranda warnings to a woman's abdomen before an abortion?

And would this be retroactive?  HOW farkING OLD AM I!!!??
 
2013-07-16 04:13:08 PM  
I already love this thread. I want to give it a path to citizenship.
 
2013-07-16 04:16:15 PM  
The GOP is not being inconsistent here -- you can't tell if a zygote is brown or not.
 
2013-07-16 04:18:49 PM  
I would never have believed you if you had told me this morning I would go home tonight having heard the term "vaginal gerrymandering".
 
2013-07-16 04:25:04 PM  
I just can't understand why women aren't more upset about the crap that's been happening lately

/because I think they could do something about it immediately if they did

With all the Planned Parenthoods closing down, this may give me an opening for new business idea:  Deportation Clinics.

God I hate Republicans
 
2013-07-16 05:07:25 PM  
Stupid amendment is stupid.

Also will never get through 2 legislative sessions plus a referendum.
 
2013-07-16 05:07:30 PM  
In all seriousness, would this mean that all people conceived in the US are now citizens? So the people who hate anchor babies now want to basically let immigrants have anchor sex?
 
2013-07-16 05:08:24 PM  
Although I've never seen a zygote build a road or frame house at slave wages, so I'm actually kind of surprised by this
 
2013-07-16 05:08:29 PM  
All right, fockers. If a fertilized egg is a person, I get to claim my pregnancy as a dependent on my taxes.

Republican logic:

Deserves full protection under the law

Do NOT deserve full protection under the law.
 
2013-07-16 05:10:24 PM  
You'd think that a party that keeps wanting to fark women over would have a more conciliatory outlook on abortion.
 
2013-07-16 05:12:29 PM  
"Citizen Zygote" would be a great name for a rock band.
 
2013-07-16 05:12:52 PM  
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said that an amendment to a US immigration bill would cause your mother's vagina to have the "most militarized border" since the Berlin Wall came down in 1989.
 
2013-07-16 05:14:09 PM  
On the plus side, transvaginal ultrasounds shouldn't be required any longer because that's assault on the new "person".

Those two will just have to keep farking until they make a zygote to protect then.

You've never heard of them?  Figures.  You're soooooo mainstream. Great band.

Fetal Personhood, Corporate Personhood....

Pretty soon the only entities without personhood will be actual people.
 
2013-07-16 05:30:39 PM  
I think the definition of a "person" under the law should have some clause about the "person" being able to go to jail if it commits a crime.

Can a corporation go to jail if it commits fraud? nope? then not a "person". can a zygote go to jail or get cited for refusing leave the property? no?? well then not a "person".

I just don't understand the GOP anymore.  if they really gave a damn about kids, they'd make sure health care and federal food programs were well funded.  ditto for schools and job training for when they graduate.  instead the focus is on making sure abortion is illegal, women have little or no access to affordable health care and 2 min after the kid is born nobody with an 'R' after their name gives a damn about you.  But hey - save the fetus, right?

The GOP has already decided that women are nothing more than incubators.

Let me stop you right there.  They don't.  They don't give a shiat about kids precisely for the reasons you describe.  They only care about mollifying their conservative, Christian base.  Anti-abortion efforts are effective toward that goal.

well, if I had to guess I'd say that the GOP line about abortion has more to do with punishing women for having sex than it does about saving the fetus.  that's just like...my opinion tho man.

I don't understand what any of this has to do with US citizenship. If abortion is murder, citizenship is not relevant. Are we allowed to murder foreign nationals and I just wasn't aware of it?

Not while incubating. Risk of miscarriage, you know.
