The idiots at the State Capitol in “storm ravaged” Baton Rouge are at it again. The govmint of the gret stet is on its knees after Katrina and Rita and what are our legislators doing? Waving about little fetal dolls and banning abortion as they did some 16 years ago.
I call it the Roberts-Alito bill folks. Some right-to-lifers think that with President Beavis’ most recent appointments they’ll have the votes on the Supreme Court to overrule Roe v Wade. Wrong: there are still 5 sitting justices who will never support this sort of sweeping ban. Hell even the dimwits in Red Stick know that: this law will *only* take effect IF Roe is overruled. They don’t even have the courage of their convictions: I say pass this piece of shit get sued and lose. There was a similar bill passed in 1990 but unlike Buddy Roemer Governor Meemaw will sign this abomination.
It’s all about politics. The Repubs love abortion as a wedge issue but the last thing that the national Republican party really wants is a court ban on abortion. That would energize the national pro-choice majority and make it harder for the likes of Earl Turd Blossom of Rove to bamboozle the nation into thinking that the government has a right to tell women what they can and cannot do with their bodies.
Do we really want the bozos who populate the Louisiana legislature telling doctors how to practice medicine? I think not.
In my view abortion should be legal safe and rare. That’s how it is in civilized societies but we live in a quasi-theocracy where the ignorant and unqualified presume to tell the rest of us how to behave. The Beavis-Duce administration crusades against theocracy abroad but practices it at home. What’s the difference between the Iranian Ayatollahs and American Religious Right? Well one bunch wears turbans and the other toupees but that’s the only difference that I can see…
That’s the end of today’s Adrastos sermonette. The collection plate is located by the exit please be generous: we in Debrisville need the Do-Re-Mi.
