Just when we thought we had been divided in every way possible...

Along comes Donald Trump to talk about Doctors and Mothers wrapping the baby in beautiful clothes before they decide to execute "it".

As if it is an enjoyable Sunday stroll in the park.

As if he has become the arbiter of what is right and moral in this country.

As if these women are somehow less than human.

As if it is an easy decision when a young girl or woman is raped, to decide to carry to term that child.

As if it is an easy decision when a child becomes pregnant by a member of her family.

These self-righteous moralizers have always used abortion as a political issue when they have felt trouble coming in the next election. Is that what is happening here?

It is painfully obvious that Donald Trump will use any issue possible to divide our country.

It is despicable.

4. Pro-life is a myth.

Republicans are in favor of killing living babies and have done so.

Pro-life is a myth.

The supposed pro-lifers cared naught when the state of Texas (republican gov, republican Prez) deliberately killed living baby Sun Hudson against the mother's wishes because he was an inconvenience to the state.

It is not a matter of life to the supposed pro-lifers.

It is a matter of control.

5. And AS IF that scenario ever happened. He and his cabal make all this shit up.

Which tells you a lot about how low their minds are. I mean, what kind of person even thinks about things like that?

7. That's why

we need a candidate that appeals to more than far left Dems. The country is not far left.

8. In this case Old Yeller seems to be talking from experience.

It's pretty clear he's uttered the phrase "Get rid of 'it'." more than once in his life to an expecting mother.

But, he views women as baby making appliances only convenient to prove his virility and otherwise a liability.

12. There were rumors when David Pecker flipped

that he had evidence of as many as 8 abortions paid for by Trump over the years.

Alas, someone must've found the price of silence.

9. I really believe Trump is neither pro life nor pro choice.

He is morally bankrupt and probably doesn’t give a whit about either side. His M.O. is to support the cause that keeps his base energized. I’ll bet any money he has paid for a few abortions in his life.

10. This isn't dividing anyone, so don't portray it as if it is.

All but the self-demented know this for appalling nonsense, and that includes by far most who oppose abortion. We're surrounded with them here. They're not idiots, and they really don't like these shabby lies slapped on what they hold as honest and moral beliefs.

19. Well, I would say it isn't because he isn't trying...

I cannot recall even one issue that he did not seek to divide with...

Never one to unite us.

There is nothing honest or moral about it.

People have a right to oppose abortion - they don't have a right to force their belief on someone else or to take away the individual rights of women.

11. Not to mention, he's been a party to more than one.

If the scuttlebutt is true, he's all for abortion when it involves one of his sexual partners. Given his depraved "grab 'em by the pussy" tape I have no doubt the scuttlebutt is true.

He's just a con man and grifter who will use anything he can to get ahead and profit. He's using the anti-choice crowd just the way he uses the evangelical crowd.

18. Remember, he wanted his second wife to have an abortion. He's only so called pro life cause for

political reasons.

13. How the fuck do they plan to enforce these laws?

Will there be mandatory government uterus inspections each month for EVERY woman in America?
Who will pay for THAT government program?
Do they plan to pay for that by starving more fetuses that were birthed already?
Is THIS what Trump was talking about in "executing" the baby - 'congrats, you're born, NOW you're fucked!!!"

Will there be special courts set up to prosecute doctors and another to prosecute women?

Will there be a birth panel established to chain to pregnant women and prevent them from leaving anti-women states to seek relief elsewhere?

I defy these fools to enforce their "laws" and then to own the backlash to them...the majority of Americans do NOT wish to live in a bizarre dystopian theocracy, no matter what the inbred morons of the Bible belt want to believe...

They’re constitutionally incapable.

15. Supremacy in America isn't just about white supremacy.


It's rich, healthy, "Christian," male, white supremacy.

They view everyone else as inferior.

17. If this doesn't galvanize even more women to vote

to protect themselves and their daughters what will? Should the Orange Menace win (thanks Putin) in 2020 the division in the country is going to accelerate FASTER than anyone can imagine.
