With a Rusty Chainsaw. Twice.

Yeah I mean your mom:

Far-right abortion opponents in Colorado have successfully collected enough signatures to put a “personhood” measure on the next state ballot. The initiative, which would redefine “person” and “child” in the state’s criminal code to include unborn fetuses, will be up for voters’ consideration in November of 2014.

Colorado is somewhat of ground zero for the “personhood” movement, which ultimately seeks to outlaw abortion by endowing fertilized eggs with all the same rights as U.S. citizens. Personhood proponents have repeatedly attempted to amend Colorado’s constitution to redefine life, but they haven’t been successful so far. Similar ballot initiatives have failed twice, both by large margins. The issue tends to divide even the anti-choice Republican lawmakers in the state.

Of course it divides them, because it punishes middle-class and wealthy women with its implicit ban of assistive reproductive technology the way straight-out abortion bans punish poor women. Yelling at women who desperately want kids is shitty optics, especially in rich white Republican suburbs.

These people are just such epic dicks. You LOST. Go HOME. Raise your own fucking kids and don’t have your abortions and don’t use IVF and don’t do all the things you wish nobody would do. Set an example of how to be an upstanding human being if that’s what you think one looks like, instead of spending all your time screaming about how other people’s choices are the wrong ones.

    Do pregnant women get two votes?

    Only if they’ve been pregnant for 18 years. Thanks. I’ll be here all week.

    I say put them in an absolute mental bind to make them show how interested they really are: ban guns as they destroy fetuses.

    BTW – wish you hadn’t mentioned rusty chain saw in association with abortion. By coincidence I just saw Sharknado a few nights ago (don’t know how I missed that cinematic blockbuster LOL).
    So your quote has me thinking about at the end where the guy escapes from the inside of the terrestrial shark.

    Is there no way to put up a “You failed TWICE, you can’t try again for 20 years” amendment?
