humans cannot make rational decisions

possibly the most offensive thing rick perry (and other conservative lawmakers in discourse about abortion) do, to me, is framing the removal of choice as a ‘protective’ motion. We are 'protecting’ women/trans* individuals (they never mention trans* individuals of course) by removing their choice.

Which seems really similar to we are 'protecting’ women by removing their right to vote.

We are 'protecting’ women by keeping them safe in the house and not in the work force.

We are 'protecting’ women by not allowing them to fight for their country.
