Some people kill time at work by playing Minesweeper. Republican congressmen do it by introducing anti-abortion measures into every single bill, relevance be damned.
The House GOP approved a Homeland Security spending bill that includes an attachment by Rep. Robert Aderholt, R-Ala, which prevents Immigration and Customs Enforcement from funding abortions for illegal immigrants. You hear that, ICE? Your days of aborting anchor babies are over!
… Except, as ICE spokesperson Barbara Gonzalez said, they have never funded or provided an abortion. Ever. Not even in that Planned Parenthood, “never with government money” way, but “even when we really wanted to because that baby was a terrorist.” (ICE already had a policy in place based on the Justice Department’s rule for the Bureau of Prisons that bars willy-nilly abortions.)
But, at least nobody can say Rep. Aderholt has never worked a day in his 15 years in the House. Technically, he’s worked at least one now.
A little over a month ago, I began investigating the enigmas that are women — these eniginas, if you will — after learning that Stephen Hawking is wasting valuable research time thinking about them. (Get back to your black holes, sir. You study cosmology, not Cosmo.)
Well, it looks like my investigation has attracted the notice of Republican state and federal legislators, who — like Professor Hawking — often have a problem with wasting time on this issue. I’ll admit that my sources are lacking when it comes to the pull of congressional committees as I don’t have the power to summon religious leaders to answer my questions.
Is this how mysterious women have become, that when science fails, we must turn to our culturally relevant mythologies (not this year, Zeus) to finally figure out what makes ladies tick? The answer is, yes, short of asking women, this is the only way to solve the further mysteries of women. Mysteries like … Continue reading Take it from Snee: Women are still mysterious
Ladies and gentlemen, it is a sad day in the news for boobs.
LifeWay Christian Resource stores, which are part of the Southern Baptist Convention and dot intersections in Alabama like Dunkin Donuts in Boston, have decided that no breasts are worth a single abortion. They will no longer sell pink bibles because a portion of the profits (God needs to get his beak wet, too) from those sales goes to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, who in turn help fund Planned Parenthood’s screening efforts.
While it’s understandable that Lifeway is against abortion — because breast milk makes tits so much bigger — this could spell the end of PP’s “Grope & Mope (over your dead fetus) Tuesday” specials.
But, then there’s today’s Headline of the Day, courtesy of ABC News: “Ta-Ta! Woman’s Body ‘Swallows’ Breast Implant.”
Have a beautiful and bouncy day!
Rick S@ntorum,* whose three-step policy plan consists of:
Step One: Banning homosexuality and abortion with federal laws.
Step Two: […]
Step Three: Profit!
launched an attack on Herman Cain’s conservatism today after Pizza Godfather Cain told CNN that — while he personally disagrees with abortion and would carry any baby inside of him to term — he would not allow that opinion to dictate policy if he were elected president.
“The government shouldn’t be trying to tell people everything to do, especially when it comes to social decisions that they need to make,” said Cain.
S@ntorum pounced onto that, telling the Associated Press that Cain is misleading voters about his conservative credentials:
“It’s basically the position that just about every pro-choice politician has in America. I don’t know too many pro-choice politicians who are for abortion, who want more abortions … but they say the decision is a choice the government shouldn’t be involved in.”
We asked an even more conservative person about S@ntorum’s comments, and he felt that Rick, too, is misleading voters about his conservative credentials. He pointed out that S@ntorum has yet to speak out against shellfish, campaigning on Sundays and tolerating the sight of menstruating women.
*SeriouslyGuys.com has a “zero profanity” posting policy in an effort to keep our inanity safe for work.
The ACLU and four other groups will have their day in court to challenge a controversial anti-abortion law in North Carolina. The law requires abortion doctors to show and describe ultrasound images of the fetus to the ex-MILF-to-be before rotor-rooting her
coote … insides.
And you know what? The ACLU is right: this law is absurd.
“Absurd” as in “it doesn’t go far enough.” Showing a fuzzy black-and-white image that only a doctor can describe won’t pull hard enough at a mother’s heartstrings.
The Guys, who just loves them some unwanted babies, want a new law. A better law. A law that requires the mother to watch a video of her womb-parasite Photoshopped into being inaugurated President of the United States, accepting a Nobel Peace Prize or punching Hitler.
Friday! FRIDAY! FRIDAY!
The federal court in Kansas City presents Abortion Showdown! Two clinics, one state, new regulations! For the first time in an American court, two abortion clinics will combine forces in a handicap match against one state: Missouri.
This match will determine the viability of recently passed abortion licensing regulations by the Rules and Regulations Board. Will the state’s political vengeance stand, or will the latest measures be … aborted?!
You do not want to miss this event! BE THERE!
Abortions are a squeamish topic, and it’s always rough on both parties involved when one happens. Emotions run high. Things are done and said that probably aren’t meant to normally happen.
Like buying a billboard proclaiming how your girlfriend has killed your child because she may have had an abortion and then reluctantly changing the name of your self-founded organization because it spells out said girlfriend’s name. Coincidentally enough. In his defense, with the way Greg Fultz looks, he might not have had many chances to procreate as it is.
We’re just going to assume that the two are not together at the moment.
The abortion debate is no simple matter. Both sides present a nuanced morality in which the lives of women, and the babies that poop inside of them, are fraught with trauma and heartbreak … at least until yesterday.
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer signed a bill Tuesday that makes it a felony for doctors to perform an abortion for a mother that does not want her child based on race or gender. It’s the first law of its kind according to state legislators, to whom we say finally!
It’s a proven statistic that parents who just loves themselves some abortion and only want one boy and one girl will abort the rest until they achieve it. That’s where the “2.5 kids” average comes from: the half is actually the assembled parts of all the fetuses that didn’t make the cut.
And, of course, it’s high time we put an end to racist mothers who clearly had sex with someone of another race.
Remember: if you’re not for this bill, then you are a racist, sexist hate criminal.
Just when Democrats are showing signs of finally working around obstructionist Republicans over health care reform, Democrats are tripping over their own shoes again. Rep. Bart Stupak, D-Mich., wants the reform bill to ban all funding for abortion–including by private insurers–or he and 11 other reps won’t vote for it.
Abortion, a legal medical procedure, isn’t popular. We’re with Supak: we don’t like it. Let’s force people to pay for it out of their own pockets.
But that’s not the only procedure we have a problem with. We’d also like to see stringent language ban funding for:
- Gynecology: In a way, isn’t it just gloved finger-rape of our wives and girlfriends?
- Chemotherapy: Bald, sickly people give us the heebie-jeebies.
- All Cancer Treatment in General: Almost all cancers are lifestyle-induced. How can we know if someone didn’t get cancer from smoking or kicking puppies?
As you can see, we are very morally opposed to these treatments. We’re so opposed, in fact, that rather than introduce a bill to make them illegal, we’d rather just charge the people who get them.
Is it just us or does it seem odd that a group of unmarried freeloaders are considering themselves experts on marriage? It’s kind of like learning the ins and outs of scuba diving from people who are afraid to swim.
That hasn’t stopped the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops from issuing a series of letters to explain their positions, again, on marriage, reproductive rights and cyborgs patients on life support.
We haven’t read these earth-shattering documents, but we’ll sum them up for you anyway:
“You got married, now have babies and don’t you stop until the corpse of your spouse is cold.”
(If the other week was bad for Scientology, how weird is it that the Catholics were next for this week?)
