PRO-LIFE: "A man ejaculates, and the rest is romantic comedy. Starring J-Lo, of course."
Terrorism and Magical Thinking
Ta-Nehisi Coates THE ATLANTIC
......................

............I was thinking about this in reference to Donald Trump's sudden, and surely heartfelt, transformation from pro-choice to pro-life. Whereas everyone "likes" babies, no one "likes" abortion. Moreover, pregnancy in our society is not seen with the clearest eyes. When we think of pregnancy we do not think of constant, prolonged, intensive labor which burdens virtually every organ of the body. We think of baby-showers, glowing skin and bundles of joy. It is almost as if the work of making a human being is really no work at all. A man ejaculates, and the rest is romantic comedy. Starring J-Lo, of course.
the rest:
http://www.theatlantic.com/national/archive/2011/02/abo... /

This bill essentially legalizes terrorism, with the intent of reducing the number of abortion providers by forcing them to operate under the threat of state-sanctioned murder. In keeping with recent efforts by Republicans to limit a woman's ability to choose whether or not to carry a pregnancy to term, the legalized terrorism portion of the bill is merely the most sensational institutional barrier being erected. As with the national GOP's effort to redefine rape while defunding women's health services, devoting full attention to that particular proposal avoids all the other South Dakota bills that seek to make it more difficult for women to have abortions.

1. Why do the radical right republicans hate women so much??
Are they afraid of the inner strength of women??
Are they afraid of the power women have over the future of the world??
Why do they hate their mothers, wives, daughters??

2. They oppress anyone they can
They like the status quo, change scares them. The bible says males are the heads of households, that they hold dominion over the earth. Ever noticed, the more oppressed a man is; the more he oppresses others? There are so many reasons, none of them good.

5. Republicans want to rape with impunity and for children to go to work.
That is what they stand for.
