    More anti-choice imbeciles


    (If you see this bus driving around–please run and call a friend. It’s full of people that want to force their scary beliefs on to you)

    On the spot ultrasounds seem to be taking the anti-choice country by storm. First, in Texas, where there is a rogue van called “Save the Storks” that is driving around and randomly offering women ultrasounds. And second this woman in Idaho–who’s commitment to shaming women led her to an “ultrasound-in” at the state capitol.

    As Amanda and I discuss on our podcast this week–in suggesting that babies come from “Storks,” we are forced to see exactly how archaic and, frankly, childish the anti-choice Texas evangelists framework is for women. If you want to perpetuate the belief that babies come from storks–then maybe don’t force women to have sonograms in the first place–they’ll immediately figure out that the baby is inside them (since obvi they don’t know already). Unless they are suggesting that a lady is a stork and her only job is to deliver a baby–even worse!
    Not only is this terrible logic, it is popular logic amongst forced child-birth advocates. Radical right-wing activist Brandi Swindell “occupied” a room at the state capitol where she began to perform sonograms in front of an audience of 150 women. The state police had to come in and shut it down. Do these people have nothing better to do?

    The bill that Swindell is advocating for is Senate Bill 1387 and “is so extreme it provides no exceptions for medical emergencies, rape or incest.” They believe women should be punished for having vaginas!
    Naturally, there is no logic to the forced ultra-sound tactic–the only purpose of this tactic is to shame women into having a baby by somehow convincing her that if she looks closely enough, that blob on the screen is going to say “momma.” It’s not just a repulsive tactic, but like Terri Proud–how not smart do they think women are? Do they think when you find out you are pregnant you might mistake it for some bloating–maybe take some anti-acid instead?

    No, women are fully aware when they find out they are pregnant that will lead to childbirth. Abortion is already an incredibly difficult and emotional decision. Making it even more emotionally taxing is not just mean, but based on the fundamental belief that women are required to and should be forced to carry all pregnancies to term.
    Finally, I am unclear how any of these on the spot sonograms–traveling and otherwise–medically safe or legal. Oh, what, you a doctor now? And if they are legal, then I am registering my religion as “pro-abortion” and suggest we start driving around and giving people access to our “belief systems” as well.

    I suggest a vaginal ultrasound of the dingo to locate the baby.

    You do recall I once set fire to my kitchen trying to make Yorkshire pudding,right?
    That was Pinklillycats recipe. Her fault.

    However, yes! I can do this. I watch FoodNetwork now.
    No dingos here, could use armadillo. Who would know the difference.
