More Fun With Rape Babies

Memo to Tom Smith, Jim Buchy, and Richard Mourdoch: JUST RUN ON FORCED RAPE-BABY BIRTH AND BE DONE WITH IT.

I'm pro-abortion. I realize this is a fairly fringe viewpoint, but I think abortions should be safe, legal, and only as rare as any other preventable surgical procedure. And if we can find a couple more safe, accessible ways to perform non-surgical abortions, then those methods should go on sale, over the counter, buy-one-get-one-free at Walgreens.

But even if abortion makes you a bit squirmy, any sane person should agree that no woman should ever have to carry a rape baby to term. If you don't agree with that, well, work the equation backwards. Oh, wait, you probably can't do that. It means I'm calling you crazy, like the following IDIOTS who SAY THE DAMNDEST THINGS ABOUT RAPE BABIES.

"I lived something similar to that with my own family. She chose life, and I commend her for that. She knew my views but fortunately for me … she chose the way I thought. Now don’t get me wrong. It wasn’t rape... Put yourself in a father’s position, yes, I mean it is similar... No … I said I went through a situation. It’s very, very difficult. But do I condone rape? Absolutely not. But do I propose life, yes I do. I’m pro-life, period.” - Pennsylvania Republican Tom Smith, explaining why it's OK to make you give birth to a rape baby.

See, his daughter got pregnant out of wedlock, having out of wedlock consensual sex with her out of wedlock boyfriend, which of course means she's going to hell. And if she enjoyed it, she's going to double hell.

Since she was going to hell anyway, it was especially noble of her to make her father very fortunate and choose the way he thought. So keep that in mind the next time you get impregnated by a rapist. You won't even be going to hell anyway, unless you were asking for it, so you're even freer to choose life than Tom Smith's daughter was. Sure, people say his comparison was insensitive and woefully inadequate, but they just don't realize how EXTRA FUCKING GENEROUS it was.

"Well, there’s probably a lot of — I’m not a woman so I’m thinking, if I’m a woman, why would I want to get — some of it has to do with economics. A lot has to do with economics. I don’t know, I have never — It’s a question I have never thought about." - Ohio state representative Jim Buchy, asked why a woman might want an abortion.

Fun fact. Nobody ever wrote a law saying that clearly, Jim Buchy votes on things capriciously and without thinking about them, so really, if he wants to cast a vote on something, we should make him wait for 24 hours, read some pamphlets about the issue, and maybe have a doctor explains things to him like he was a fucking six-year-old.

I mean, it's bad enough that we're at the point where we're arguing over whether to keep exceptions for rape, incest, and the life of the mother in our abortion laws. But since we're arguing about it so much, you'd think maybe, just maybe, Jim Buchy might have heard those as more than just words, and recognized them as three reasons women might want a goddamned abortion.

Another reason? So they don't have a baby that grows up to be as fucking stupid as Jim Buchy.

"Mourdock then seemed to choke back tears, and continued: "I've struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize that life is that gift from God. And even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen." Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdoch, indicting his God for war crimes and himself as an accessory to those crimes.

So God can decide whether or not you get pregnant when you're raped? And more importantly, makes that call on a regular basis? I know he works in mysterious ways, but could someone please ask Murdoch WHY he would do that? Or why he wouldn't stop the rape from happening in the first place? Or why he caused the rape in the first place?

Here's a fucking hint. When your morality puts you in a morally untenable position, RETHINK YOUR MORALITY. It's not that difficult. All you need to do is come to the realization that your collection of beliefs have made you into a horrible creature, more beast than man, devoid of compassion or logic.

Then, once you realize that, FUCKING CUT IT OUT.
