They can say this is about letting a pregnant woman kill an attacker but the truth is this law is motivated by something far more sinister.   Hell, they may as well call it "Open Season on Abortion Doctors Act" since any nutjob who blows one away will be allowed to invoke SYG to say he was merely defending the life of a fetus

Is giving an unborn fetus a gun even medically possible?

Marcus Aurelius: Is giving an unborn fetus a gun even medically possible?


I can see the NRA headquarters in Fairfax, VA from my office window, and I can tell you that there have been nights that I have heard, in close proximity to each other, the wail of a distressed zygote and the rapid discharge of a high-capacity magazine into what I can only assume to be an anatomically-correct dummy in the shape of the back of a black teenager. Once I'm pretty sure it was followed by the popping of a champagne cork.

I'm gonna need someone to explain to me how, if abortion remains a legal medical procedure, someone ELSE can legally kill a licensed abortion provider for providing legal abortions as defined by law.

Well they better make sure to give the fetus an AK 47. An AR 15 isn't going to function well in all that amniotic fluid. Reliability is important.

Didn't a few states already try something like this and it was struck down in every state because it was clearly a blatant attempt to legalize the killing of abortion doctors?

Serious question: if a pregnant woman spent a lot of time at a gun range or shooting guns, wouldnt that hurt the fetus?

Do doctors reconnend that pregnant women not shoot guns?

if you see a pregnant woman shooting a firearm, do your part to protect the fetus and shoot the hell out of her
 
2014-04-11 03:49:46 PM  
The wording: Current South Carolina law permits the use of deadly force to protect oneself or others against "imminent peril of death or great bodily injury."

Could you thus take deadly force measures to protect a fetus from the imminent peril of death by abortion?  These are the types of things that need to be considered when drafting a law, in addition to the fact that the face of this law is redundant.  The actual intention of it should be under consideration, not some feel-good "protecting preggos" banner.

In other news from the Palmetto Derp-fest, a state senator has successfully strong-armed USC-Upstate to cancel the humorous production of "How To Be a Lesbian in 10 Easy Days" having assessed it as "gay recruitment."  Ya Rly.

Ted Nugent's mom was always at shooting ranges.  Nothing wrong with him.

Hey, maybe we can use this to settle the whole when does life begin debate. Love begins when the fetus is able to practice proper gun safety. Any ideas on how to give a hunter's safety course in the womb? I can't figure out where to put the barbed wire.

You can't abort a baby.
 
2014-04-11 04:12:35 PM  
So, if you see a woman going into an abortion clinic, is it okay to shoot her in the head to protect the fetus?

Also, is it okay to shoot a woman on her period since she has just killed a potential fetus?

A pregnant woman went to the airport abd the TSA found an unloaded weapon in her bag. As they were about to arrest her, she calmly explained that her unborn fetus has a concealed carry license. No sweat. She made her flight.

Every time I see that picture of Sherman I'm struck by how completely batshiat he looks.  He was one of the kind of people that, if not for the army, would probably be a serial killer, arsonist, or dictator.

As for this law, more of the same -- an attempt to kill abortion doctors.

You know, at this point, I think America is just going to have to find out, all over again, what happens when you outlaw abortion.  We apparently have short memories (see vaccinations).  I guess when white women start dying in back alleys we might remember.  Maybe.

That's probably because he had to stay absolutely still for two minutes to get that picture. Most early photographic portraits have that grim serial killer look to them.

Actually according to the state stand your ground law, you are allowed to use deadly force to protect yourself or OTHERS being threatened from harm... so in essence, If a pregnant woman asks a doctor to give her an abortion, anyone is allowed to shoot said doctor if he attempted to perform the procedure.

Soooo Que right to life/pro gun folks standing outside woman's health clinics with guns ready to shoot any doctor trying to enter... Yep that's pretty much GOP minority outreach 101 these days

Well, I'll have to disagree. I don't think Sherman looks batshiat crazy, I think he looks batshiat determined. "You will knock this shiat off or I'll burn your house to the ground." crazy. I think SC could use some 'determined Sherman' right now.

I went to school in South Carolina. While there is much to like about the state (Charleston, and the Lowcountry in general), I'm more or less horrified by the place. This, coming from a Louisianian (albeit New Orleans). Think about that, South Carolina: A dude from Louisiana is ashamed for you.

Let that sink in.

Sure, we live too close for comfort to Dick Commander and a governor who spends more time hawking bumper sticker bullsh*t on a national stage than accepting a generous medicaid subsidy...but holy sh*t we're not South Carolina.

Even "Diaper" David Vitter and that recent family values asshole who was filmed kissing someone other than his wife don't compare to the singular hive of scum that was/is Mark Sanford.

I have (on my other machine) the same picture with the caption "Do I have to come back down here again? Because it's looking like I do."

Horribly offensive, but I love it. I'm not so sure the real Sherman would be welcome within 50 miles of any human being, though. MacArthur maybe? Although I think I recall reading he was kind of a war-hungry asshole. Anyone can correct me on that if I'm remembering wrong.

I just realized why Daenarys Targaryen is such a badass:

media.tumblr.com

She's got the W. T. Sherman of Westoros under her command. Which of course implies that she is Lincoln, especially given her predilection for freeing slaves.

Sadly, America seems all out of Shermans, MacArthurs, Pattons, Marshalls, etc.
