GOP-Controlled Kentucky Legislature Moves Fast on Anti-Choice Bills

Deirdre Fulton, staff writer

On the same day that they assumed total control of the state legislature for the first time in nearly a century, Kentucky Republicans introduced and fast-tracked new abortion restrictions that they hope to pass by week's end.

Once again folks in the dirty South acting on their intelligence,


#3

Why is the abortion issue always #1 on everyone's mind when it has nothing to do with running a fair and equitable government? It is not a government issue. It is a personal social issue and should be discussed anywhere but in a legislature. For a bunch a men deciding the fate of any woman is ridiculous Why not issue a law demanding that all men receive a vasectomy? Or, better yet, why not work on legislation that is in the best interests of everybody??

Loved the post- maybe many of their handlers are the religious wingnuts who sound like a cult. Can you imagine a politician entering everyone's bedroom? That's pretty much what they are saying.


#5

So intelligent women are moving out of Oklahoma, Texas and now Kentucky.

What are the other states that are losing intelligent women?

These corporatist micromanagers must be the remaining stupid men who like the women who stick around.


#6

Perhaps these "men" only want women who utter nonsense about rights of the unborn. When the thinking women move out , the religious nuts will recruit even if they get other wingnuts from other countries.

Hey, what if viagra is made illegal, and men have to buy it on the black market?


#8

Hey, now that's an idea.... a law stating that any man should have a vasectomy after father two children.... now THAT would really help us reduce population..... but, guess what... these men are too damn chicken... it's a joke I"ve heard... that many men are AFRAID TO DO THIS...

My point is that the obsession with the abortion issue and the hundreds of ways legislatures are writing new laws dealing with finding new ways to make it criminal is spending a lot of time that could be better used in dealing with real and pressing issues related to solving problems of the state. In one case they were even playing around with the idea of making spontaneous miscarriages a criminal act. That is really scraping the bottom of the barrel in inhumane ideology. Let's just throw out one idea for example, finding new ways to bring new jobs to their state and putting the unemployed back to work. Or, is that too boring and not in the interest of the religious folks who need pandering to?

They are throw back men... in more ways than one...


#11

Bingo.... these men are super MF'ers... These men are Stupid pigs.... I am sssssssssooooooo sick of their sh*t....... Women.... have the ability to become pregnant.... from about 12 to 45..... they ovulate every month.... on average..... now... tell me... that there is someone who is going to say to every woman.... no matter what happens to you.... no matter HOW you get pregnant... you HAVE TO HAVE THAT BABY... AND YOU BETTER RAISE IT ALL BY YOUR DAMN SELF...
and ... there are plenty of scenarios.... multi scenarios.... of how a woman may become pregnant.... and I want EVERY ONE OF THESE SOB'S... INVESTIGATED... AND THEIR WHOLE LIVES... INSPECTED... AND THEY HAVE TO PAY THE CONSEQUENCES OF ANY GD THING THEY THEY HAVE DONE... INCLUDING... ANY OUT OF WEDLOCK CHILDREN THAT NO ONE KNOWS ABOUT... OR ABORTIONS THEY MADE THEIR GIRL FRIENDS GET...

A: Religion. Specifically, Christianity.


#13

Yes, the Christian Pro-Lifers who have an odd sense that they are so right that they feel the whole country needs to feel the same way they do If they are so Pro-Life it only makes sense that they begin adopting and applying real sex education. Abstinence only is very admirable, however I doubt that there is or ever has been raging hormones that couldn't overcome an oath no matter how sincere it is.


#14

When will we criminalize sperm, and stop blaming women for the Tango that takes two.


#15

How about NO children? We have too many people already.


#16

Abstinence only? How about women who are pregnant after rape or become so after birth control doesn't work, or have a medical issue?


#17

Great one !!! Notice also that women are always blamed for rape or incest - they "entice" them.


#18

Of course it's personal- no kidding, but it's also a " distraction" from real issues like war, poverty and pollution matters that are very common.


#19

Yes, this harkens back to the Dark Ages of flogging and torture in Europe.


#20

That's not Christianity- it's control and cult.
