Guess who is upset that they are getting national coverage over the abortion debate?
If you answered "Michigan's Republican lawmakers" step forward and claim your prize!
“This is a state rights story and they are trying to make it an attack on women and a national issue,” said state Rep. Bob Genetski, R-Saugatuck, during a Holland Chamber Governmental Affairs breakfast this week for West Michigan legislators.Abortion isn't a national issue? O RLY?
“The only attack on women is on the ones that are currently living in the womb,” he said.
The Washington-based group [Americans United for Life] drafts "model legislation" including gestational limits on abortions, additional regulation on abortion clinics, and bans on insurance cover for abortion and ultrasound requirements. In addition, it is pursuing efforts at both the federal and state level to defund Planned Parenthood.(Emphasis mine.)
That's kind of funny that Rep Genetski doesn't recognize that the group that very well may have written (or at the very least inspired) Michigan's proposed ban on abortions after 20 weeks are active on the national scene. So, Bob. A question. Are you trying to clumsily deflect attention away from your shitty, unpopular legislation or are you a dumbass who doesn't know what side his bread is buttered on? Remember, these two options aren't mutually exclusive.
Moving right along: I note that women "in the womb" (or as I like to call them, female fetuses) are still more important than actual grown ass women. I'm not surprised that ol' Bobbo would feel this way, however I am incredibly frustrated that these conservative doucherockets think that they can get away with co-opting and corrupting woman's rights to jam their anti-woman agendas down our collective throats. Our lady brains aren't so soft and fluffy that we can't figure out what you're doing, asshole.
What about the male fetuses (or for the intelligence impaired: "men currently living in the womb"), Bobarino? Don't they matter to you?
