So let me get this straight . . . You are not in support of a right to life? This bill only restricts abortions past the 5th month and even then has respect for situations on incest or rape. So what you are saying is that you are for killing fully formed fetuses.
First off, reading the bill, I don’t see the “respect” for situations of rape and incest that you say are there. What I see is the Texas Hospital Association and the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists opposing the bill. What I see are concerns from medical officials that this bill is not based on scientific concerns and will increase risks to women’s health. What I see is a state that is ignoring many of the larger problems it faces to supposedly take a stand against the 1.3% of abortions that are performed after the 20th week of conception. What I see is claims of “protecting women” from abortion, when there’s a higher incidence of injury or death from childbirth than in abortion. Hell, plastic surgery is more dangerous and less necessary than abortion, yet there’s no effort to make that safer in Texas. So what I see is a governor who has stated his goal is to ban abortion completely and that this is the first step on his religious crusade, despite the fact that 63% of Texans oppose more abortions restrictions.
And, really, let’s get down to it- you and I are both male. Neither of us has the slightest fucking right to tell women what to do with their bodies. I mean, you get that, right?
