    It isn’t rape if it’s legal.

    I hope Republicans (men and women) in Virginia and Arizona see this strip.

    What a ghastly parody of the Marriage Service (“I thee wed”)! Texas has turned the clinic into a satanic ritual where the fatherless child is baptized by the state.

    This is what happens to an unwed mother when, as rmleon put it, she make Satan her inspiration instead of God.

    Will…will it hurt the child when he or she is aborted?

    Yes, the Republican party still owns Texas, unfortunately, and this is the kind of garbage Texans will have to put up with until the voters finally wise up and vote them out of office. We need more women in office who aren’t “Eagle Forum” or “Tea Party” types.

    Possibly, but nowhere near as much as it would hurt to be born into a world where nobody wants you—-least of all those who demanded you be carried to term.

    Texas Republican legislators: the problem is their brain development ended in that first trimester, not even a notochord.

    So… when GT makes a crude joke, comparing a very uncomfortable medical procedure to rape, it’s okay?
    Would it be okay if, say… Rush Limbaugh made a similar joke?

    @pouncingtiger
    yeah, I live in arizona and I know for a fact that they are refusing to run this story arc. They are doing reruns instead.

    Rush Limbaugh’s voyeurism extends rather to the wombs of “sluts.” That’s why none of his jokes are okay—-because when he thinks of women, his mind is never okay.

    It’s not just uncomfortable, but it’s being forced on women. The comparison is a bit more apt in that case.

    The difference is, for GT. the woman is the victim and the legislators the villains. For Limbaugh, the woman is a slut, and the men just audience members getting their moneys worth.

    If she doesn’t want the sonogram/ultrasound, she can get up off the table and leave. It’s not rape.

    By Trudeau’s logic, the abortion is rape. The abortion tools penetrate not only the vagina but also the cervix.

    A sonogram is standard procedure performed by abortionists anyway. They want to see where the baby is so they can kill her more easily. Also, they are checking to see if the baby is in the uterus or in the fallopian tube. Even with our current laws, it would be malpractice to commit abortion on a woman’s empty uterus, failing to end an ectopic pregnancy, and putting the woman at risk of death when her fallopian tube bursts.

    But the abortionists often turn the screen away from the mom. Moms, you have a right to demand that they show you the screen when your pre-abortion is performed. You have a right to make an informed decision.

    That’s pre-abortion sonogram.
