  •  So many times (4.00)
    I have thought the same thing. But how many women and teenaged girls would have to pay the price for their willful pig-ignorance?
    •  not enough to matter... (3.78)
      and it'll mainly be the poor. Rich folks will make their own "arrangements."

      That's why hags like in the above picture aren't worried about their daughters.

      They couldn't care less if poor girls are raped... if they're lives are ruined by a forced pregnancy.

      Couldn't care less. When I see women like the above, I think to myself:

      Maybe Texas should be a seperate country... just put all the Evangelical crazies there, and forget a about them.

      U.S. blue collar worker vs. CEO income in 1992 was 1:80; in 1998 it was 1:420.

      •  It's not just Texas (4.00)
        It's all over the country - check out these new laws from South Dakota and restrictions in Mississippi, generally considered the worst state when it comes to choice.
      •  it's not that they . . . (4.00)
        don't care if poor girls are forced into pregnancy. This is actually almost a PLUS for them and their daughters. It narrows the competition for good jobs and husbands. Also, forced pregnancy helps to prevent upward social and economic mobility, which I think is probably one of the underlying reasons for passing legislation against abortion.
        •  I REALLY doubt they think that far (none)
          More like it's just cheap emotional fulfillment by a bunch of immoral wackos.  Every damn fundie in that picture is hiding a serious atrocity, and they're using this Stone Age law to make themselves feel better about their own hidden sins.

          It's kinda like how a multi-millionaire embezzler gives $5 to charity.  No real sacrifice, no real emotional investment, just a cheap hit of Warm Fuzzy.

          Warm Fuzzy is a horrible, horrible drug.  I can't think of anything worse, though Denial (from which Warm Fuzzy is a derivative) comes close.  Warm Fuzzy is the drug that allows horrible people to do horrible things.  It quashes guilt, keeps people from regretting all the pain and suffering they impose on others.

          And the ultimate drug dealers of Warm Fuzzy are the McChurches in the Bible Belt.  Warm Fuzzy hasn't been distributed this wildly among the immoral and depraved since the Indulgence fad peaked in the Middle Ages.

          My taxes support the troops, not a yellow sticker.
