Your Rapist’s Baby?

Despite actual, empirical evidence that striking down the constitutionally protected right to an abortion destroyed their so-called Red Wave, the fetus-fondling gawd-botherers are still planning on a national abortion ban:

House Republicans are set to vote on a pair of abortion bills this week, just a few months after their disappointing performance in the 2022 midterm elections that even some top Republicans like former President Donald Trump attributed to extreme abortion policies.

Both proposals are likely to pass in the GOP-controlled House but die in the Senate. The futile attempt to pass anti-abortion legislation comes on the heels of a letter sent to Republicans in the House from dozens of conservative and religious groups. The letter includes a list of anti-choice demands such as passing a law to protect infants born alive during an abortion and a national ban after six weeks.

It also follows last year’s Supreme Court decision repealing federal abortion rights, which played a huge role in boosting Democratic turnout in the 2022 midterm elections. Republicans who confidently predicted a “red wave” all year long were stunned in November when they failed to win the Senate and only win an extremely small majority in the House.

The understatement of the morning:

“We learned nothing from the midterms if this is how we’re going to operate in the first week. Millions of women across the board were angry over overturning Roe v. Wade.”

—Rep. Nancy Mace (R-S.C.)

Republicans are every bit as extreme as we said that they would be, perhaps even more so in Alabama:

One week after the federal government made it easier to get abortion pills, Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall said Tuesday that women in Alabama who use those pills to end pregnancies could be prosecuted.

That’s despite wording in Alabama’s new Human Life Protection Act that criminalizes abortion providers and prevents its use against the people receiving abortions. Instead, the attorney general’s office said Alabama could rely on an older law, one initially designed to protect children from meth lab fumes.

    I read the article that Ten Grain attached, and found this quote. “The ACLU of Alabama is disappointed to learn that Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall is continuing to insert himself into a person’s medical exam room,” Gilchrist said. “Medical decisions should remain the private choice between a patient and doctor. The Alabama Attorney General lacks the jurisdiction to prosecute Alabamians from receiving legal and legitimate medical services prescribed outside the state of Alabama.”
    Seems relevant…

  2. The pic that precedes the post … villifying a fetus/baby (whichever the pic is meant to project) is both bogus and offensive.
    It (the pic) sickens me everytime it’s employed like this. It’s saying a mother is a victim who must be protected by the fetus/baby who is cast as evil -instead of the rapist.
    It’s manipulative and all kinds of wrong.
    Villify the rapist, not innocent fetuses/babies.

        I’ve always taken it that those are the rapists. It never occurred to me that they represented the fetus or baby. I do understand where you come from in your comment. ☮

      • The subject of the articles with this pic is always “your rapist’s babies” and the caption beneath the pic even asks (directly implying) “your rapist’s baby”. The pictures are of baby Alien/Predator characters. … I didn’t twist a thing to arrive at that these pictures are 100% meant to depict “your rapist’s baby” -and that the fetus/baby/child is implied as evil at conception.

        See, I knew there is a baby Yoda, but I never followed Alien or Predator so didn’t realize their babies were so developed as babies. My mistake.

    Sounds like the Alabama Attorney General has been huffing some of those meth lab fumes.

    [Full disclosure: I know about meth lab fumes from experience. As a DEA forensic chemist from 1973 to 1995, I went along of about 35 meth lab raids.]
