My mom’s ideas were “Jesus” (mexican pronounciation) or “Gilberto”, which were the names of “some really nice guys she was friends with for many years” before she married my dad (She friendzoned them, and they were ok with that)
My Father’s ideas were “Victorio”, the name of his grandfather, his father, and his own, or something generic and name-ish like “Carlos” or “Pablo”.
Somehow, I ended up with something completely different.
A law under consideration in South Dakota would expand the definition of “justifiable homicide” to include killings that are intended to prevent harm to a fetus—a move that could make it legal to kill doctors who perform abortions. The Republican-backed legislation, House Bill 1171, has passed out of committee on a nine-to-three party-line vote, and is expected to face a floor vote in the state’s GOP-dominated House of Representatives soon.
“The bill in South Dakota is an invitation to murder abortion providers.”
The bill, sponsored by state Rep. Phil Jensen, a committed foe of abortion rights, alters the state’s legal definition of justifiable homicide by adding language stating that a homicide is permissible if committed by a person “while resisting an attempt to harm” that person’s unborn child or the unborn child of that person’s spouse, partner, parent, or child. If the bill passes, it could in theory allow a woman’s father, mother, son, daughter, or husband to kill anyone who tried to provide that woman an abortion—even if she wanted one.
Jensen did not return calls to his home or his office requesting comment on the bill, which is cosponsored by 22 other state representatives and four state senators.
“The bill in South Dakota is an invitation to murder abortion providers,” says Vicki Saporta, the president of the National Abortion Federation, the professional association of abortion providers. Since 1993, eight doctors have been assassinated at the hands of anti-abortion extremists, and another 17 have been the victims of murder attempts. Some of the perpetrators of those crimes have tried to use the justifiable homicide defense at their trials. “This is not an abstract bill,” Saporta says. The measure could have major implications if a “misguided extremist invokes this ‘self-defense’ statute to justify the murder of a doctor, nurse or volunteer,” the South Dakota Campaign for Healthy Families warned in a message to supporters last week.
The original version of the bill did not include the language regarding the “unborn child”; it was pitched as a simple clarification of South Dakota’s justifiable homicide law. Last week, however, the bill was “hoghoused”—a term used in South Dakota for heavily amending legislation in committee—in a little-noticed hearing. A parade of right-wing groups—the Family Heritage Alliance, Concerned Women for America, the South Dakota branch of Phyllis Schlafly’s Eagle Forum, and a political action committee called Family Matters in South Dakota—all testified in favor of the amended version of the law.
Can’t abort a non-living fetus. But you can kill the real people who perform the abortions!
I think the irony is pretty funny… you kill babies, I kill you. Sounds fair, those unborn children can’t defend themselves; so if you kill them for a living, I think running into a psychopath that is backed by law to kill you is ironic, funny and… kinda ok. You don’t respect life, I don’t respect your life (:
….watch me lose followers haha
Oh dru! You’re so funny! HAHAHAHA! Isn’t it funny when a woman gets raped and is forced to carry her rapist’s baby? Isn’t it funny when a woman using contraception has it fail her and she becomes pregnant anyway? Isn’t it funny when a woman has an ectopic pregnancy which can kill her? Isn’t it funny when a woman who already has 2 kids she can barely afford finds herself pregnant again and unable to care for a 3rd child? Isn’t it fucking funny when a woman who wanted her baby had to make the very hard decision to terminate her pregnancy due to fetal health issues and while she sobbed on her way walking into the clinic, all those judgmental assholes called her a baby killer. ISN’T THAT FUCKING FUNNY??????
Ugh. Unbelievable. Don’t they know that when you kill an abortion provider, two grow in its place???
Seriously, though, this is awful. So would it be justifiable to kill someone who’s planning to kill an abortion provider? You could use that to just bomb pro-life meetings. “They were all planning on murdering someone… it had to be stopped!”
Eliminating abortion doctors won’t stop abortions from happening. They’ll just make them more dangerous for the woman. But, you know, logic or whatever, not important when you’re making laws that let you legally kill people.
I would make a video discussing the pros and cons of this whole shebang just as soon as i find the proper hats to connote “Gentleman” and “Savage”.
Savage is not necessarily wrong, Gentleman is not necessarily right,
Really they’re just highbrow and lowbrow opinions… highbrow/lowbrow is just an outlook i suppose.
Washington: We all drink coffee, eat apples, and wear Birkenstocks.
Illinois: Everyone is a democrat and we’re all corrupt.
Hawaii: We all in grass shacks and surf to school.
CALIFORNIA: We’re all tan, blonde, and never wear anything warmer than Rainbows and shorts.
CANADA: We live in igloos, ride polar bears to school and drink maple syrup.
AUSTRALIA: We all live in the middle of nowhere, never get snow, have pet kangaroos and walk about bare foot saying “G’DAY MATE WANNA PUT SOME SHRIMPS ON THE BARBIE AYE CUNT” except that last part is true if we’re talking about my friend Stefanie
DEVON, ENGLAND: Oiiiii torrrk lyyyyyyk thaaaas ‘n’ oiii dryyyv a traaactrrrr ‘n’ live ehn moyyyy wellaayyss. Oh and being British, I simply ADORE tea and biscuits. Must dash, Queen Lizzie calls!
NORFOLK, ENGLAND: I’m basically a farmer with webbed feet and I’m married to my brother.
ESSEX, ENGLAND: All the girls are complete slags and have at least three kids by the time they’re 16. Also, none of us are very intelligent, and just love having a glowing tan.
South Carolina: I’m a hypocritical “Christian” that goes on and on about loving Jesus but wouldn’t lift a finger to help anyone in need and looks down on anyone that does anything even remotely bad (tattoos, drinking, etc). I live in a mobile home and have a confederate flag sticker on my old ass truck and I’m a big Clemson football fan.
We all live in mansions with 4-car garages, and at least one of those cars is a Porsche. We think/know that, because we are the richest state, we are better than everyone else (actually, this kinda seems to be true…) and we are also better than you because we have no noticeable accent.
We’re all redneck land & cattle owners with steely gazes who ride horses eveywhere and don’t leave the house without at least a colt .75 handy and refer to each other as “pilgrim”.
Also, we solve all of our problems with poker, or if more problems areide from the previous problem solving, gunpowder.
This is something that has upset me for a very long time. I’ve finally reached my breaking point on it. I’m actually crying right now. I was going to make a video on the subject but after a few attempts that ended in me sobbing and shaking all over the place I decided to do it…
At the risk of sounding heartless;
With soem luck and a few well-placed surges in biotechnlology, whis problem could very well be solved.
Since most ovaries are abotu the same dealio with the main difference being the chromosones inside, all a person would have to do is implant a “hollow” ovum with half of the desired human genes.
These genes could be selected, (an event more like Build-a-bear and less like Hot Sumerian Ama -Arhus worshipping), and then inserted int othe woman’s body.
the genes could also be selected at random, but this may yield sloppier results.
As for the rest of the entire reproductive system, a future in stem cells may be able to regenrate this. It may take a few years of therapy to get the, as I call it, “baby chamber” up and running like it would in an adult woman, but it would allow one to give birth to children.
Again, I am not making small of OP’s tragedy and pain; in fact my intention is that if anyone gets anything out of what ive just written is that they should put reasonable hope in patience…
Im nto making any sence anymore, Savage-Gentleman out.
