Aunt B and Sean Braisted have already posted this but what the heck, I might as well pile on. It’s pretty funny:
In related news:
• In response to a Georgia bill further limiting women’s access to abortion, Georgia Democrats propose a state ban on vasectomies. And I like their reasoning:
“It is patently unfair that men can avoid unwanted fatherhood by presuming that their judgment over such matters is more valid than the judgment of the General Assembly, while women’s ability to decide is constantly up for debate throughout the United States.”
• House Democrats objected to the name Republicans gave their bill banning the non-existent practice of selective abortions based on race or gender. Those Republicans, always banning shit that doesn’t exist! Instead of the “Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass Prenatal Non-discrimination Act of 2011,” Democrats had their own suggestions (warning: link is to right-wing CNS News): the “Ronald Reagan Impose Your Beliefs on a Woman’s Womb Act” or the “Tea Party Determines What Rights a Woman Has Act.”
Republicans have made a mockery of our politics, thanks to their ridiculous war on women’s reproductive rights. And they call us the party of the nanny state? They’re the ones trying to control what everyone else is doing! Here’s a thought: instead of mock legislation designed to make a point, how about we pass a law saying no one can tell a another person what they can do with their own body? I know, it will never happen. I’m such a dreamer.
