Rape and Incest

Miss. House Advances Bill to Ban Abortion

OK, no surprises here. Mississippi seems like it might be the type of place where women are treated like second class citizens.

The measure, which passed the House Public Health Committee on Tuesday, would allow abortion only to save a woman's life. It would make no exception in cases of rape or incest.

Barbour, a Republican, said he preferred an exception in cases of rape and incest, but if such a bill came to his desk: "I suspect I'll sign it."

Heck, I'm surprised they even made an exception for the woman's life. Most pro-lifers believe that life begins at conception and thus the fetus has the same rights as any other person because it is a protectable life. So why should anyone be surprised that there would be no exceptions for rape and incest? After all, it is not the fetus' fault that it was the product of rape or incest. Wouldn't the fetus have the same rights as any other person, regardless of how it was conceived. If the woman was raped, she will just have to accept the fact that she must act as an incubator for some baby she never asked for because that baby has just as much a right to life as she does.

So why are some pro-lifers willing to make an exception in the case of rape and incest? Why is it OK to terminate a fetus (which remember, has the same rights as any other person and is a completely innocent bystander) in these circumstances but not because someone's birth control failed or because the woman is in an abusive relationship or because the woman is a teenager who is not capable of taking care of a baby or just because it is not the right time to have a baby? Seems to me that if you start going down the slippery slope of allowing some abortions then you are opening up the flood gates for unlimited abortion. Just ask those valiant warriors battling to protect the institution of marriage.

Should the life of a woman trump the life of an innocent fetus? Who gets to play God and decide which one lives and which one dies? Put yourself in the place of an innocent fetus (which, in case you have forgotten, is a person with the same rights as any other person). Would you want someone else making life and death decisions about you? Wouldn't you deserve a fighting chance? Besides, if a woman dies during pregnancy or childbirth, can't we all be comforted that it was part of God's Plan?

I would be suspicious of any pro-lifer who does favor exceptions in the fight to save innocent fetuses babies people. If they can justify the killing of the innocent in certain circumstances then surely they are animals capable of leading us into the next holocaust.

Senator Bill Napoli from South Dakota supports the murder of innocent people.

FRED DE SAM LAZARO: Napoli says most abortions are performed for what he calls "convenience." He insists that exceptions can be made for rape or incest under the provision that protects the mother's life. I asked him for a scenario in which an exception may be invoked.

BILL NAPOLI: A real-life description to me would be a rape victim, brutally raped, savaged. The girl was a virgin. She was religious. She planned on saving her virginity until she was married. She was brutalized and raped, sodomized as bad as you can possibly make it, and is impregnated. I mean, that girl could be so messed up, physically and psychologically, that carrying that child could very well threaten her life.

So you have no problem allowing a religious virgin to murder her baby, eh Bill? I guess her baby is shit-out-of-luck and doesn't even deserve as much protection as a crack whore's baby? You make me sick you hypocrite. If a teenage slut can survive the physical and emotional trauma of rape, surely God's loving grace will heal the wounds of an innocent virgin. Stop turning your back on the unborn. Uphold the sanctity of life and force that girl to give birth to that baby.

Wow, give it up to Bill. He found a way to describe rape, a horrible event, in an even more horrible way. Kudos Senator!

Do you hear that, women of South Dakota? If you need an abortion, make sure you tell the high court that you were a virgin, who was praying while on your way to provide refreshments to the men working on the roof of your church and preach the bible to them to inspire them to make the best roof EVER when - BAM - you were savagely attacked, no doubt by a black man.

For some reason, Sen Napoli seems to think it's necessary to add the words "brutalized" and "savaged" to describe rape, so make you throw those in. Don't be using any of the usual words like "enjoyable" or "not so bad." Also, he apparently doesn't understand what the word "sodomized" means, so be sure to throw that one in too, even if you have to roll your eyes while you do it.

When you are done with your testimony, be sure to burst into sobs and faint/collapse on the nearest male shoulder you can find.

Oh, wait. South Dakota just passed the law anyway. Brutalized virgins be damned!
