Like, does anyone have anything better to talk about? So many people make this out to be such an important issue. Michelle Bachmann just called it, “the watershed issue of our time.” Oh please. Cry me a river.
So what if some people abort their fetuses? Seriously. What’s the big deal? The world economy could slide into a huge recession. That is a big deal. Many people would be affected in really bad ways. There are major protests against dictator-like governments in the Middle East, even civil wars. Those are big deals. There are millions of people starving all over the world. That is a big deal. The enslavement of North Koreans. That is a big deal. The resurgence of terrorism, religious intolerance, increased murder rates, the world’s energy crisis, natural disasters. Those are big deals. Whether Jane has an abortion or not…that’s not a big deal, especially when you are not Jane.
The point: there are so many actually important things to talk about and get motivated to do something about than abortion.
When does life begin? Who cares? Like we will ever know. That whole question is so arbitrary that I want to slap someone who finds that it is THEE question of the century. “But the unborn baby has rights!” That’s pretty debatable, but the mother certainly has rights. So side with what we know and let the mother have her rights over her own body. People wanting to legislate over other people’s bodies like that need to climb back into their holes.
But face it. Abortion is primarily a political issue hyped up to motivate certain demographics to vote in particular ways. Republicans love to bring it up to energize their conservative base to vote. And you know what that means, don’t you? It means that secretly Republicans never want the abortion issue to be settled in their favor because then they would lose that motivation to get people to vote for them.
Yep, so we’ll still be hearing about abortion for the next 100 years or so…Oh God, abort me now!!
