Conservative group Personhood Ohio is hard at work trying to get a “personhood” amendment on the state ballot that would define life as beginning at conception, effectively banning all abortions. Patrick Johnston, the group’s leader, recently penned an email blast with his newest fundraising effort, RH Reality Check reported:
“I’m selling some of my favorite things—some powerful rifles and ammo,” Johnston wrote.
“I’m a firm believer that the Second Amendment protects the future of freedom, but not as much as justice for the preborn,” Johnston’s email continued. “The shedding of innocent blood will bring God’s wrath on the land — and then you can wave freedom goodbye. So protecting Ohio’s children is more important than securing your right to keep and bear arms.”
What do guns and abortion have to do with each other? FUCK LIBERALS, that’s what. That’s all this is. Anything that pisses off liberals — restricting women’s medical care, careless use of firearms — is good, despite whether it actually tracks from one moment to the next.
These people have no issues. They’re basically sports fans, the worst kind, and fuck the other guys no matter what. They would rather be bullies than do anything about any one of the causes about which they claim to care so passionately, and there’s about as much chance of finding common cause or room for compromise as there is in convincing the two sides of a football tailgate that both teams have merit on the field.
