David: An anti-abortion bill, another one, has been introduced by Representative Bobby Franklin. I don't have to tell you which party he's a member of, you know, I know, we all know. And it would enable the death penalty for women who have had a miscarriage, OK? If his name sounds familiar, Bobby Franklin, it's the same guy who wanted to change the term "rape victim" into "rape accuser", so that should give us a little bit of, what's the term, context and perspective.
Louis: A little background.
David: The bill describes abortion as prenatal murder, and it excludes miscarriage only under the condition that the woman in question can prove no human involvement caused the event. This is completely bogus, Louis. How could you possibly prove a negative? OK, we hear about this all the time. Louis, you have never proved to me that you've never been on the moon. You've never proved it. I mean, I've never asked you, we have no evidence indicating either way, but you haven't been able to prove that you've not been on the moon.
Louis: And strangely enough, I cannot prove that I've never been on the moon.
David: So this is the same thing. So many miscarriages happen within the first 20 weeks of pregnancy, often a sign the pregnancy simply didn't develop properly, how could you really prove that it had nothing to do with the woman's diet, with stress the woman was subjected to, any number of different things?
Louis: Not that we even need to explain the ridiculousness of the bill.
David: Exactly. I'm playing along simply to buy in and dispute the letter of it, but the spirit of it is completely absurd. And I was thinking, if we're going to do this, I might propose another bill: let's have the death penalty for masturbation, because if we're talking about prenatal killing here, Louis, we're talking about genocide.
Louis: I suppose you're right.
David: Would you support a bill like that?
Louis: Sure, why not?
David: Louis is into it. Very good. Well, somebody, at this point, from what we've heard from Bobby Franklin, Bobby, I think that it should be proposed to him. It seems like it's up his alley, it seems it's something he might like.
Louis: Well, shoot him an email.
David: Yeah, we'll do that.
Louis: We'll get in contact with his people and see what we can do.
David: Do you think he has people?
Louis: Everyone like him has people.
Louis: You don't think he's got at least two people, three people?
David: [Laughs] I guess Bobby Franklin might have people. I don't know.
