2. My state just passed a personhood bill
nothing about life of the mother, rape and incest attached.
I assume that any hormonal birth control would be outlawed.
Of course it goes without saying no abortions.... in a state that is near the top in unwed pregnancies.
You know, I have an ex-friend who is a right-winger. She had an abortion in her mid-40's. Felt she didn't want any more children.
I wonder now what she feels about all this. I bet she thinks the bill is fine... they are such hypocrites.
I do have hope though. I bet the courts strike it down like they did the asinine Sharia law bill.

5. Funny you should mention Sharia.
Does anyone else find it disturbingly bizarre that while they attack "Sharia law", they are also working so hard to move this country in the direction of what Sharia law would mean to women?
