Today is Monday, August 20. According to my records we’re supposed to discuss “The Grace of Silence” today. Um, I haven’t finished it. And by finished, I mean I haven’t started it. Let’s reconvene on Tuesday, September 4. Cool? Cool.
Speaking of oops, what is wrong with this man??? Apparently this man, who is running for Senate has opened his mouth and inserted not only his foot, but several other feet that were laying around nearby. Genius – who opposes abortion no matter what – said that the female body “shuts down” to prevent pregnancy in cases of “legitimate rape.”
What in the what is he talking about??? Now let me say, I believe in a woman’s right to obtain a safe, legal abortion. Whether or not anyone agrees with me is not the point. I don’t care if one’s stance is that abortion should be illegal. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. But if you’re against abortion, just say “I am anti-abortion.” Do not spout off b.s. scientific “facts” like a woman’s body shuts down to prevent pregnancy in cases of legitimate rape. What quack-ass doctor told him that? What the hell is legitimate rape? I cannot fathom that there are people with normal levels of intelligence walking around – much less holding office – who believe such nonsense. I really cannot.
Is this the Republican stance in a nutshell? “So, let’s make abortion – in any case illegal. Let’s force women to carry out unwanted pregnancies. Let’s then deny them any sort of help – financial or medical – while they’re carrying these pregnancies to term. And, to wrap it all up, let’s not provide any sort of services or support for the women or their children once they’re born. Because that’s what God would have us do.” Am I missing something?!?!?
Geez, it’s time for yet another news boycott. I can’t handle hearing this madness day in and day out until November.
