With Paul Ryan having an Akin moment, saying that “I’m very proud of my pro-life record, and I’ve always adopted the idea that, the position that the method of conception doesn’t change the definition of life,” Ryan explained. “But let’s remember, I’m joining the Romney-Ryan ticket. And the president makes policy.”
The possibility of Romney and Ryan being elected ought to scare the you-know what out of you if you are a woman of child-bearing age. And the men who love and respect their daughters, grand daughters, sisters, wives, mothers, nieces and aunts. If Romney and Ryan are elected and sign into law their “Human Life Amendment” outlawing abortion in every circumstance, we will have an ideological take over of women’s bodies.
What rights will Baby Making Machines have?
If a law is passed that says the United States government recognizes that life begins at conception, here are some interesting things to consider about the reality of less government by government mandate. Since the Republicans clearly believe we cannot figure out ethical or moral behaviors ourselves, there will be more and more morally mandated laws to regulate us. Even though they say don’t believe in them, they will do it anyway. They are firm believers in the practice of hypocrisy.
How long before woman are obligated BY LAW to do everything they can to protect the other life inside theirs than cannot be supported with out them.
- What will happen if a woman is caught smoking, while pregnant?
- What about drinking or doing drugs?
- What about eating junk food?
- What happens if she can’t afford health insurance and have all the tests necessary to see if they fetus is healthy?
What happens if the woman’s body ( for what ever reasons) has a miscarriage or spontaneous abortion? Will she be tried for murder? Baby slaughter? If the GOP doesn’t believe a silly little thing like having your body and spirit raped leaving you with emotional or physical scars, I can only image how they will deal with a woman who could let her own body do such a crazy thing.
As I’m re-reading this, I am thinking how absolutely insane this sounds. But it would be crazy not to consider these possibilities.
I just don’t get it…… Americans complain and protest about how they don’t want their government telling them how to diet and exercise, what vaccinations their children have to get, and what health care they have to get. But when it comes to a woman’s choice and her mental sanity, her body, or even her financial well-being, these very same Americans want the government telling her she has to keep the pregnancy and like it? Land of the free, home of the insane.
Once we rape and violate our constitution with an amendment that denies the rights of one party for another’s, we will go down that slippery slope of destruction of our basic rights like a bat out of hell. Just look at the Patriot Act.
