WE want women to have exactly the same body autonomy as (white) men. I know that seems like a really difficult concept for the folks who think F/Lester’s a shining star… but that’s the actual truth. We want a woman who needs (for her OWN reasons) an abortion to be able to get one with no more (and no less) difficulty than a man would have getting a benign growth removed. Period.
That’s what you get out of this, Mike?
As per usual, Little Mikey uses the extreme to stand for the people he doesn’t like and ignores all else.
Here’s another take that could slow things down a little: “If you kill the mother, the fetus dies, too. But the fetus is going to be aborted anyway, so why not let it go down with the ship?” – The Birdcage 1996
They say it’s all about States Rights… so were the Jim Crow laws!
Why is PP afraid of each State deciding? (hmmmm)
What sort of moron equates a human foetus with a benign growth? Foetuses (foeti?) have a heartbeat from a few weeks. Once they have a heartbeat, they are people! And you can’t abort them as that’s murder.If you’re still in disagreement, go onto Youtube and search for a video of an (ex) abortion doctor telling Congress exactly how late-term abortions actually happen. The foetus is too big – it would actually require the mother to go through the birth process – and so the doctor cuts up the foetus into small pieces that are then small enough to pull out through the vagina. The doctor then puts the pieces together like a jigsaw puzzle to ensure nothing has been left inside. Read that last sentence again! F***ing barbaric! And you think a woman should be able to order this ‘murder’ for any reason, because ’it’s her body’? No f***ing way! She should be able to have an abortion up until foetus heartbeat, then not. If a woman doesn’t want a baby, she can make sure she isn’t pregnant/has an abortion a few days after gestation. That’s it!
Great strip, Mike. It drew just the sort of comments we’ve come to expect.
Clearly there are no requirements to be an editorial cartoonist. You don’t have to understand current affairs and you don’t have to be on board with reality or be truthful. It’s an easy job .. just draw whatever nonsense pops into your head. Who cares if it connects with facts ?
I know that you think this applies to everyone but yourself in that if you were faced with taking the responsibility for an unwanted pregnancy abortion would be ok.
The problem is anti-abortion proponents are not okay with “whenever” they put limits such as having to view sonograms, talk to an antiabortion “counselor” and put limits on clinics so there is often only one or two in the state.
SC will rule!
What’s wrong with this picture?
More back ally abortions will happen…..
What if a woman was raped?
You can be sure GOP women wouldn’t bring a baby into this world if they didn’t want it…..
AND abortion is not to be used as a means of birth control either.
Depends on extenuating circumstances…..
