Look, there's a limit to exactly how illegal you can make abortion, and conservative legislators are always trying to one-up each other by proposing new ways to make it illegal-er. It takes a stroke of luck to come across a great idea like giving women the death penalty for having an abortion for any reason. But it takes a true genius to decide that women who merely have miscarriages can also be arrested, charged, and put to death. The great mind we're talking about, Georgia state Rep. Bobby Franklin, has
This asshat should be locked in a room with a hundred surly teenagers saying, &quot;Hey! I didn&#039;t ask to be born&quot;.
We&#039;ll see how long his anti-abortion stance lasts then.
Jeebus H fuck, my Wonkette is going to make me pick up a book or some shit. I am embarrassed to admit I first heard of her via her tweets. No!! Stop shunning me, stop it!!
<blockquote>I can get behind this as long as we make premature ejaculation a captial offense.</blockquote><br />Yes, a capital offense as well as a sin of emission.
He&#039;s beyond the closet and halfway down the septic tank. And you don&#039;t want something that&#039;s been down there &quot;coming out&quot;.
The problem with people yelling &quot;the government is taking away our freedom&quot; every time a new corporate regulation is enacted is that when someone really IS trying to take away peoples&#039; freedom, no one notices.
It seems that Franklin wants abolish driver&#039;s licenses, so that government does not restrict the right to travel, but is quite happy to have government interfering in miscarriages.

Has he been drinking moonshine with too much methanol?
I find that my tears bring out the subtle flavors in a my glass of bottom shelf scotch. (close to the poor, meant for the poor)
If something comes along to top that, I&#039;m going to start slashing some wrist. Mine, his...I&#039;m not picky.
I nominate this as this week&#039;s What the FUCK moment.
Not only that, but a lot of miscarriages are related to chromosomal abnormalities, which could be proven only if the women had the actual products of the miscarriage and they could be submitted to testing. Have those products been flushed or otherwise discarded? Go directly to jail, do not pass go, etc.
As someone who experienced TWO miscarriages, I have to admit that I&#039;m not coming up with any snark. Just fury. Snark-free fury. The emotional trauma of the first one, in particular, exceeded that of finding out my parents were divorcing.
I&rsquo;m thinking about running for office so I can introduce bills that:
Criminalize stupidity. Make it illegal to whistle in a work environment. Demand public flogging for farting in an elevator. Call for the death penalty for anyone that starts a sentence with &ldquo;Rush said&hellip;&rdquo; Ban bumper stickers. AND Provide free jet packs for everyone that can pass high school physics.
Remember to vote often for Grumpe!

This wins the category of &quot;least surprising parenthetical remark of the year.&quot;
Georgia will make Saudi Arabia look feminist!
The Repubicans will stop at nothing to protect an unborn human life (or fetus). But after that sacred life leaves the womb, it is every ex-blastocyst for himself. Health care, food, education, environmental safety -- all these are beyond the legitimate scope of government to the &#039;Pubes.
Opinion on abortion hasn&#039;t changed in the past 30-40 years. A small number say &quot;always illegal&quot;, a small number say &quot;always legal&quot; and a large group says &quot;some limits&quot;. Meanwhile the number of actual abortions has been going down. I doubt it&#039;s due to less sexytime. Contraception works. But Pope Pence has said &quot;no&quot; to that too.
Perhaps the solution is free &quot;massage services&quot; from the government. That would reduce chances for pregnancy, right? And think how many jobs it will create!
