    More anti-abortion stuff, Indiana this time.

    I've never heard DeathWizard's voice, but in my head, it's rather melodious and saying, "It just won't stop. It never stops."

    http://www.slate.com/blogs/xx_factor...o_require.html

    A bill requiring a woman to get two transvaginal ultrasounds, one before and one after a non-surgical abortion, has moved out of committee in the Indiana Senate.
    Two.

    But wait, there's more:

    The bill also requires abortion providers that only provide medication abortions to meet state requirements for surgical facilities.
    That includes stuff like widened hallways and "anesthesia, surgical, and sterilization equipment" and will very likely put some pill providers out of business.

    Gah.

    If these people cared about LIVING people as much as they cared about UNBORN people, then rape would be a thing of a past, poverty would vanish, and our education system would be the finest in the world.

    And, in a bitter irony, abortion would likely be all but gone...

    I wonder what is prompting this sudden spike in offensives in the war on women. Is it just coincidence, or is there real fear that the economy issue is hurting them, so they're attempting a melodramatic diversionary tactic?

    I think it's the desperate flailing of a man who has been stabbed in the lower intestines and left in the muddy, trash filled gutter of history.

    Zoombie,

    Once again I think your right on target. The problem I have with evangelicals is they only travel on a one way street.

    While the proponents got their asses handed to them in the national election, they won a lot of places in the local arenas. Now they are doubling down in prep for 2014.

    Got to admit, that great use of imagery right there.

    I'm not even totally convinced that some of these people honestly care about unborn children as much as they purport to, to be honest.

    A fine sentiment. Let's hope.

    Well, of course they don't. What good does a transvaginal ultrasound do after an abortion? Nothing. It only serves to punish the woman.

    I think George Carlin said it best :

    Boy, these conservatives are really something, aren't they? They're all in favor of the unborn. They will do anything for the unborn. But once you're born, you're on your own. Pro-life conservatives are obsessed with the fetus from conception to nine months. After that, they don't want to know about you. They don't want to hear from you. No nothing. No neonatal care, no day care, no head start, no school lunch, no food stamps, no welfare, no nothing. If you're preborn, you're fine; if you're preschool, you're fucked.


    Really, if the rest of the world isn't laughing their asses off at us by now, I have to wonder why.

    Yay for state-sanctioned rape. Harsh? Yeah, probably. But, you insert an instrument into a woman's body, against her will. I wonder if that's simply lost on these assholes.

    I think it is, because I really think they put not one minute of thought into any of this crap. When they do -- when they are made to by the inevitable backlash, that's when they either get that panicked look and start backpedaling desperately, or else they get that defiant 6-year-old look and double down on the most offensive parts.

    Born an raised Hoosier. Then I moved to Kentucky, an even more backward state. *sheesh*

    I sometimes ask militant pro-lifers how many kids they have adopted. Every single one didn't understand the relevance of my question. Now, everyone is allowed to have their own opinion, as long as they don't try to force it on my uterus. I do find it interesting that the most anti-abortion folks are also anti-contraception and anti-adoption for same sex couples.
