1. TN was one of the 1st

Around time of boof boy's coronation to the SC.

The TN legoslature crafted & passed a bill that would automatically kick in &akr abortion illegal if/when Roe were to be overturned.

Let's remember: if men could conceive, abortion would be a sacrament!

2. Absolutely!

It sends me over the edge that there are these control freaks who think they have the right to legislate the behavior and lives of people they will never know. There is no way of knowing what a stranger is going through. Someone who knew nothing about politics once asked me what was the difference between liberals and conservatives - and the simplest explanation I could give - relating to what was going on at the time - was that "conservatives" want to tell everyone else what to do.

4. When it comes to the abortion question, I read an article which illustrates this point perfectly -

Crafting laws that legislate the personal lives of strangers - there was an article I read around the time of the election, think it may have been posted here. There was a guy running for public office - I don't remember his name or party - who was asked where he stood on the abortion issue. And he related an agonizing story from his personal life. Turns out that years ago he and his wife were expecting a very much wanted child. But something went wrong with her pregnancy and the fetus that she was carrying became nonviable. So what needed to be done was to remove it ASAP, if that didn't happen it would poison and kill her. But when no matter where she went, no doctors or hospitals would perform the procedure because it was considered an abortion - which was illegal where they were at time - even though not doing so would result in this woman's death! At the last possible minute, the couple found a friend who agreed to do it and her life was spared. But this is an example of how it's a heinous thing to try to legislate people's lives. You never know what they might be facing...

5. Of course! Ans, consider the states which give express PARENTAL RIGHTS TO RAPISTS

Was it Idaho or Montana that most recently did this?

What better way to ruin a woman's life?

6. I thought that this candidate - wish I had paid attention to his name

Made the absolutely perfect illustration of how wrong these policies are. It must have been incredibly painful for him to relate, but he did so for the greater good. And everyone who thinks they know what's best for everyone else should be exposed to it. As for rapists, they belong in jail, not exposing innocent children to a fact that could ruin their lives.

7. Exactly!

I would personally take it a step further with punishment.

It just seems qpukes are intent on destroying any shred of decency...
