I Am Without Words…..


That’s not true, of course.  I have plenty of words, but most of them consist of profanities.  This disgusts me.  I am embarrassed to be from the South when things like this occur here.  I will never, ever understand how anyone can state with a straight face that there is no war against women, children, & the home when things like this are happening all around us, often  backed by the party these folks belong to and support.  You know what?  I’m glad I don’t understand it.  If I did, perhaps I would be like them.  I think I am better off disgusted, repulsed, & appalled than wrapped in a cocoon of self-righteous smug cluelessness, intolerance, misogyny, and bigotry.

Mississippi Abortion Legislation

‘Coat-hanger abortions’ he says, offhandedly, in much the same tone as one might say “Pass the salt, please”.  The level of fear of and hatred for women that lurks behind an offhand remark like that terrifies me.  People like this need to be somewhere far, far from positions of influence or power in our government if things are ever to get better.  What was really accomplished here?  The loss of work of a section of medical personnel who would otherwise have been assuring the health and safety of these women, not to mention any other procedures they might have been doing there unrelated to abortions.  They are now out of work.  Meanwhile, you and those who think like you are doing their utmost to bar women from birth control through the insurance plans they pay for while simultaneously turning a blind eye to male sexual aid drugs like Viagra being covered.  Essentially, you have raised unemployment, decreased the standard of healthcare, pressured women with ever decreasing options into more births due to less availability of birth control, decreased assistance for those children once they are born, and your take on it is an offhand slap against those pitiful unfortunate ones who might become so desperate as to injure themselves, perhaps even fatally.    Wow.

    With all the unwanted births, I’m sure this leads to more crime by disadvantaged youths or those who feel they have no other option

    It’s remarkable to me that, as far as we’ve advanced on issues like gay rights, abortion rights seem to be worse now than they were when I was a kid.
