A few thoughts on Arizona’s brand, spankin’ new anti-choice law.
But first, a brief summary. Let’s see if I can get through this without wanting to gut myself with a Spork. I think I’ll let my pals at The Raw Story do it for me.
Jan Brewer signs abortion ban defining pregnancy before conception
You read that correctly, monkehs. According to Jan and her minions, all of us gals who are still dealing with menses are pregnant — right now.
“Republican Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer on Thursday signed one of the most controversial and restrictive abortion bans in the country, which experts say effectively bans abortions after 18 weeks and declares that a woman could be pregnant 2 weeks before she even had sex.”
Oh holy fetus suction device, you’ve got to be kidding me. How Draconian must we get? And the GOP says there ain’t a war on women.
Of course, after ruminating about this for a titch, I had a few thoughts — with a little help from some friends.
Are maxi-pads and tampons considered baby blankets now?
If you say “Not tonight dear, I have a headache” are you, in effect, committing pre-meditated murder?
What about those folks who don’t believe in the Immaculate Conception?
If a woman is murdered, is the killer now responsible for two murders?
If you drink or take drugs at any time during your cycle (which is all the time) could you be locked up for endangering a fetus?
Eventually will new life start with a filthy thought? (if that was the case, I’d have a million chirrun running hither and yon)
Will there soon be anti-jackin’ it bills introduced in the Arizona Legislature to prevent male Arizonians from spilling their sacred seed? Can’t have one without the other, see.
What if you’re a eunuch? A castrato?
If you’ve had a hysterectomy, will you be considered a serial killer?
Will New Mexico now construct a large Abortion Plex near the Arizona/New Mexico border?
What about women who aren’t on the perfect 28-day cycle? How will they be ‘regulated’?
Will all stillbirths and miscarriages now be considered homicides?
Is cooking eggs now considered animal cruelty?
Is a douche now considered a weird kind of baby shower?
If you’re a post-menopausal woman, does that mean you’re eternally pregnant?
Knowing how Arizona feels about brown people, does this law apply to women of color too?
Does a uterine lining now get a social security number?
Does the law really mean two weeks AFTER conception?
