The religious nuts are at it again. Some twisted god freak / Baptist minister / Florida state legislator has introduced a bill that would make abortion – any abortion for any reason – a felony punishable by up to life in prison.
State Rep. Charles Van Zant, R-Keystone Heights and a Baptist minister, filed a bill this month that would make nearly all forms of abortion a first-degree felony for the provider, punishable by up to life in prison.
“I just felt like we’re destroying a lot of Florida’s children and we need to stop,” Van Zant said, “and I felt led by the Lord to do that.
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot? Apparently this diphead hasn’t heard about the separation of church and state. What one is “led by the lord” to do ought to have nothing to do with the laws one crafts for the citizens, especially when such laws are in direct conflict with decisions of the United States Supreme Court.
Of course, the various and sundry wackaloons that come out of the woodwork anytime they hear the word fetus have become involved.
Mary Huston, who became a staunch abortion opponent after having an abortion at age 19, said she’d like to see Van Zant’s effort take hold. Huston is the regional coordinator for a group called Silent No More, a public awareness campaign that stresses the long-term side effects of abortion.
Huston blames her abortion for an inability to conceive, but she said few people give consideration to the big-dollar business of abortion, what she said is its tendencies to coerce patients into the procedure, the women who die on the operating table or those who commit suicide in the aftermath.
“The truth would make people run to the state Legislature for help,” Huston said. “When’s the last time someone came up to you and said, ‘Hey, I just had an abortion and it was great?’ They are the walking wounded. They know it’s horrible and that’s why nobody talks about it.”
Oh, for fuck sakes! Where do these people come from? One wonders what the difference would be between the number of women who die in accredited medical facilities while undergoing a legal procedure versus the number that would die when forced to seek out an illegal practitioner without access to the best equipment.
One further wonders why this myopic moron thinks her experience of terminating a pregnancy is universal.
The question she asks! Jesus on skis! When’s the last time someone came up to you and said, “I just had a wart removed from the sole of my foot and it was great?” Because people don’t chat about such a personal, sensitive, private medical matter, it must then be something they regret. What sort of fucking imbecile permits such ignorance to spill out labeled as rational argument?
