Today in "smaller government" and "fiscal conservatism"... piles of money was wasted on an unconstitutional bill that puts The State in control of your vagina in Oklahoma.Look, my faith is such that I'm not a supporter of abortion. There are exceptions, of course... if the mother's life is in danger or if the mother will be harmed mentally or physically by bringing the baby to term... things like that. But you know what? THIS BEING *AMERICA* AND ALL, IT'S MY FUCKING CHOICE TO DECIDE WHAT I GET TO BELIEVE! And... oh yeah... IT'S NOT MY FUCKING VAGINA! Which is why I firmly believe that it's not the government's job to force my beliefs on other people. For me, a life begins at conception. For others, a life is a soulless collection of cells that has no life outside the mother's womb. For still others, an embryo is devoid of life until a certain point of development. It goes on and on, and who can say what the ultimate answer is? Which is why I'm steadfast pro-choice and find this kind of heinous legislation anti-American, anti-woman, and even anti-human. Fuck you and your fascist bullshit, Senator Dahm. You've made lives substantially worse for women having to make one of the most difficult decisions of their life... by writing a law which forces them back to coat-hanger abortions and back-alley surgeries. You're not saving lives... you're endangering them.
UPDATE: It's not that I expect sanity from Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin, but sometimes miracles happen.
