Pro-Birther Priorities

The claim of being “pro-life” becomes a complete hypocrisy in the case of the 10-year-old child who was raped, became pregnant, and could not have an abortion in her own state. The life of the young girl, a child, was not at all important to the “Pro-Lifers”. Is this case a chilling premonition of things to come? I hope not, but I’m afraid so. Clay Jones sums it up far better than I ever could …

Republicans’ first talking point after learning a ten-year-old girl had to cross state lines to get an abortion after being impregnated by a rapist was to say it wasn’t true.

A child was raped and impregnated. She couldn’t get an abortion in her home state of Ohio because the GOP in that state banned abortions after six weeks with no exceptions for rape or incest. She was pregnant for six weeks and three days. So, she went to Indiana for the procedure. Republicans said this story was “too good to be true” for Democrats.

In saying the story was too good to be true, in that Democrats could use it politically against the GOP’s stupid backward knuckle-dragging cave-dwelling anti-women policies, Republicans were admitting that forcing a ten-year-old to give birth to her rapist’s baby is fucking horrible and an outrage. That’s the policy they support but they don’t want you…

  1. It is horrifying to think how the reversal of Roe v Wade will truly bring harm and trauma to the most vulnerable women. Votes over human rights is truly a disgusting atrocity.

    • It seems that women are, once again, considered second-class citizens in this country, subservient to the “superiority” of males. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. Yes, women will die, because some states have gone so far to say that even if the fetus is not viable and the woman’s life is in danger, the fetus cannot be removed! And this case — a 10-year-old girl, almost still a baby herself … where’s the compassion? Sigh.

  3. Jill, call me crazy, but it I find it odd that a group of people can be made to believe a true story is lie, but get riled up when a person known for being untruthful is called out in a lie. It gets back to to Occam’s Razor. Is it easier to believe there was this vast conspiracy including Republican election officials and judges to commit election fraud to deny the former president a win OR is it easier to believe a person well known to be untruthful is lying yet again? The simplest explanation tends to be the truth. Keith

    • I agree … I am always amazed by some of the nonsensical lies people will fall for. I think some of it boils down to a lack of education — most Trump supporters, for example, are not college-educated. And some boils down to they believe what they WANT to be true, what validates their own prejudices, or what justifies their beliefs. And then, as you say, there are those who don’t believe the lies, but it is profitable in one form or fashion to pretend to believe, to go along with. And that is the category I see in this instance … as you say, the simplest explanation is usually the right one. Sigh.
