Women's Reproductive Rights

Final Word
"Thou shalt not mess with women's reproductive rights." -Fallopians 4:28

I offer my sincerest thanks to About.Com for putting together dozens of these political messages. *sobs* Now please don't sue me! - I'm just showing the ones I found particularly amusing.

When I ran across this yesterday, I was absolutely howling. (Keep your Boehner out of my uterus? OMG! Ha ha ha!) At several points, I had tears streaming down my cheeks I was laughing so hard. Funny? You bet but it was all even funnier because of the subject material. I've said it during the 2012 Election campaign that the GOP has completely lost their minds. They open their mouths and spout the most absurd notions that are in no way reflective of reality, science, and fact. I don't even know how they can say some of this stuff with a straight face. Am I the only one?

In one picture above, two very nice ladies - heck, they could be suburban housewives - are holding up a sign which reads, "If I wanted the government in my womb, I'd f**k a senator." That's hilarious! And gutsy. But it is also indicative of just how stupid this debate has gotten. As I tweeted during the 2012 election campaign, "Ladies, if you vote Republican, you can kiss your vagina good-bye."

Now what's going to happen? "If a candidate threatens female choices, a woman's body has ways to shut that down." Amen. If the GOP doesn't look out, they'll end up alienating everybody. *Beep* Too late!

my blog: Rape? No problem! Women must have an orgasm to get pregnant. Aug 21/2012
During an interview, Representative Akin was questioned about his no-exceptions view on abortion. When asked in the case of rape whether a woman who became pregnant should have the option of abortion he replied:

"Well you know, people always want to try to make that as one of those things, well how do you, how do you slice this particularly tough sort of ethical question. First of all, from what I understand from doctors, that’s really rare. If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. But let’s assume that maybe that didn’t work or something. I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be on the rapist and not attacking the child."

my blog: Rush Limbaugh: That's spelled with one F and one U Mar 14/2012
Recently, the world has been atwitter on Twitter and other social media commenting left, right and centre about one Rush Hudson Limbaugh. Of course, it is easy to pile on by calling him an anal orifice or a Neanderthal or a meany... (I consult my notes) oops, that's a f**kin' meany... however I can't help feeling there is more, much more not just to this particular story, but to what the story represents. This is the tip of the iceberg.

my blog: Why are we talking about gay marriage? Feb 7/2013
The economy needs improvement. Global warming is a concern. Unemployment must come down. People are starving in various parts of the world. Collectively we have to deal with pestilence, war, famine, and death. Gay marriage? This isn't at the top of my list of major concerns. In fact, it's not in the top ten. Not even in the top hundred. How about we all start paying attention to what's really important?

my blog: Gay Men Will Marry Your Girlfriends Dec 13/2012
This all started on November 20, 2012 when CollegeHumor, a New York City based web site posted a video called "Gay Men Will Marry Your Girlfriends". In an amusing fashion, the clip puts forward the notion that if gay guys can't marry one another, they will marry the girlfriends of those men supposedly against gay marriage. Obviously CollegeHumor was on to something.

my blog: If you're a woman, this is why you should vote Democrat Oct 13/2012
You are a woman. You have the right to choose for yourself. It's your body. You have the right to choose sex education, birth control, and even abortion (but let's hope the first two choices minimize the third choice). I repeat: it's your body. It's your right. If you vote Republican, you are voting to give up those rights.
