They'd rather women die in childbirth or pregnancy complications. I'm sure they'd prosecute for miscarriages, too.

There should be some sort of penalty for lawmakers who waste taxpayer money like this.
 
2019-04-10 06:28:40 PM  
So...how many abortions has he made his mistresses get?

Texas state Rep. Tony Tinderholt (R) was placed under state protection in 2017 when he first introduced the bill because of the death threats he received, The Washington Post reported Wednesday.

Can to please stop wasting our money on this bullshiat? Both defending your stupid, hick ass and defending stupid laws that will be overturned. Complete wastes of money.

"We will kill you if you have an abortion.  Because life is sacred."
 
2019-04-10 06:53:03 PM  
How about we introduce a bill that calls for the death penalty for stupid Texas republicans introducing bullshiat bills like this.

fusillade762: There should be some sort of penalty for lawmakers who waste taxpayer money like this.


I'm thinking it should be the same penalty he was proposing for the women.

Whoa there pardner. Shouldn't we just cut their ears off and tongues out the first time? They can still be impregnated with rapeseed afterward. What are you people thinking?

I notice he's not trying to get the father tried as an accomplice.

Because there's no depths to which Republicans will not sink.

The guy has been married five times to four women. Family values ftw!

Unfortunately, he's my state rep. I did not vote for him.

Conservatism is a mental disorder.

The guy is on his fifth marriage.  Someone should really explain to him Jesus' teaching on divorce.
 
2019-04-10 07:01:12 PM  
It's Texas. I think they just like executing people.

That's the point of the exercise, getting the money into the "right" peoples hands, so they can use it to make more

2019-04-10 07:03:02 PM  
If this is how we're going... if Republicans shut down half the women's clinics in the state, which drives up the maternal mortality rate, why can't we charge them with fetal homicide? Are they not endangering the poor fetuses by causing them to forgo medical care?

I see what you did there.
 
2019-04-10 07:03:35 PM  
Just wow.  Fools who understand neither god nor life should never be in charge of this sh*t.

Politicians should have to take an eighth of mushrooms or 500ug LSD before taking ANY office.

We need to know they are responsible and sane.

There was an episode of Sliders where a virus (i think from a WMD) killed off most of the male population. It was engineered to affect men. So apparently this human civilization was smart enough to engineer that kind of a disease but had developed no in vitro fertilization technology. So all the remaining men were rounded up and placed in special centers where they were forced to help repopulate the planet. I prefer that scenario. #deathbysnusnu

I don't know why they always sing about a bomb being in Gilead at church.

Not nearly strict enough. If they execute a woman for getting an abortion, then they execute the father too.

Trucker: "We will kill you if you have an abortion.  Because life is sacred."


How one can be pro death penalty and pro life at the same time always blows my mind.
 
2019-04-10 07:11:51 PM  
Of course, the men who caused the pregnancies would be charged as accessories to murder, right?

fark conservatives, fark religion, fark this country and fark Texas in particular.

One of the few things Catholics get half right. The Church opposes the death penalty due to pro life teachings.

Republicans: "We believe in limited government. Also, the government should LITERALLY determine who lives (abortion) and who dies (death penalty)."

Does that include if a wealthy family's daughter mysteriously travels out of the country and returns less pregnant than when she left?

Fortunately, the pro-birth people I know are also anti-death penalty. But I know they're far and few in between.

These people genuinely believe it's moved to the LEFT too much. I actually spoke to one.

/Political conversations are a great way to lose lots of respect for your co-workers.
 
2019-04-10 07:49:04 PM  
If life is so precious and sacred then I'm assuming there is another bill guaranteeing that everyone has access to food, shelter and healthcare regardless of their origins, nationality or economic status?

If not, you can fark right off with your righteousness.
