Lady-Brains Canít Make Their Own Medical Decisons

Source: care2.com


Someone finally said it. We all knew itís what they were thinking, but someone finally said it out loud. Anti-choicers donít believe women are smart enough to make their own medical decisions. At least theyíre being honest, I guess.

Who is the brave lad? Rep. Joel Johnson of Michigan. You know, the one who is trying to make ultrasounds mandatory before all abortions, even though said ultrasounds are not medically necessary. Yeah, that guy. Heís come out and said why he thinks this type of thing is so very important:

We have consumer protection laws for people who are getting loans, or buying life insurance. It requires that things get explained to them and in my opinion this is another situation where people arenít making a decision they wonít be happy with down the road.

Johnson goes on to say that the ultrasound should be done before the woman takes any medication to make sure she is ďmentally capableĒ of making this medical decision.

1. Well, let's give the boy points for honesty.

Imagine the screams if we ladies said men can't make any reproductive decisions since they can only think with one head, the small one.

I used the language on purpose, because that is exactly what this man is talking about this. Ladies can't think due to vaginas.

retrograde to say lightly.

4. It's the old beliefs

That bullshit about eve's curse, woman are inferiors,because of 'original sin' so they must submit to men because gawd had men write it in the bibble, mixed with a bit of bullshit about women being 'hysterical' as in a woman's uterus wanders around inside her body making her crazy.
Patriarchal men like this creep need to learn their place,and it's equal to women,even though his beliefs make him such an asshole.

3. so they did not get the message last nov--they are now not even pretending any more. this

is nothing but pure hatred and contempt for women--the very thin veneer has finally come off, and their snarling hatred is out in the open for everyone to see (like the iowa reps who want to make every woman who has an abortion guilty of murder)

8. Thank you, niyad.

If they didn't get the message last November, they never will. Largest gender gap in history. And it grows wider by the day.

7. Next they will require mandatory psych exams prior to abortions, and

they will have to be conducted over a 1 week period, inpatient at special mental facilities just for women who want to murder their babies.

14. Yep. Grover Norquist wanted to shrink government

small enough to drown it in the bathtub. The rest of his buddies want to shrink it small enough to fit into your vagina.

11. So in what other situations should rape be conducted?

Well, I think that men who want enhancement drugs should have a anal ultrasound, or perhaps something shoved up their penis to make sure they are "mentally capable" of making that medical decision.

After all, Dickhead Johnson, what's good for the goose ...

18. I'm just curious but

what does the medical establishment think of having to perform a procedure they don't recommend and the patient does not want? That's GOP "small government" for ya.

12. did anybody else notice how poorly worded this sentence is, or is it just me?

It requires that things get explained to them and in my opinion this is another situation where people arenít making a decision they wonít be happy with down the road.

13. Yeah, I noticed.

It's a double negative and means they ARE making a decision they WILL be happy with down the road. Asshat.
