Blast from the Past. At Daily Kos on this date in 2013—'Pro-life' terrorists super excited about this year's Fetuspalooza:
|Ah, January in Washington, D.C. Bare trees, icy sidewalks, inauguration plans underway—andterrorists dressed up like sweet little grandmothers bussing to the nation's capital, ready for their annual celebration of restricting women's access to health care.
That's right, it's time for Fetuspalooza 2013!
Ever since the Supreme Court held in 1973 that yes, women have the right to decide whether and when they want to have children—a right that has been redefined, restricted and outright denied ever since—the fetus fetishists have gathered for the "March for Life" to either celebrate or mourn, depending on just how successful their war on women and doctors has been in the preceding year. In 2012, 19 states passed 43 new laws restricting reproductive rights, so you figure there will be an awful lot of celebrating at this year's march.
Sarah Kliff at the Washington Post writes about one such fetus fetishist who has devoted her life to terrorizing the Allegheny Reproductive Health Center in Pennsylvania and is very excited about her upcoming four-hour bus trip to "to spend the day with 100,000 other people who feel the same way that I do"—meaning, of course, a big group hug with thousands of other like-minded terrorists.
