I'm sure next on the docket will be a bill to ensure any childless women over the age of 20 are kidnapped and impregnated by the state.

That's republicans for you though, determined to ensure any and all women remain barefoot and pregnant at all times

Optimistic of you to set the age limit so high tbh..

They'll just legalize rape.

I think they covered this in The Handmaid's Tale.

Abortion pills are safer than over the counter acetaminophen.

[-] jeffw@lemmy.world 9 points 3 weeks ago

Acetaminophen ODing is a slow and painful death

Parenthood is even slower and hurts in unimaginable ways.

[-] FlyingSquid@lemmy.world 11 points 3 weeks ago

I always say this as a parent- Parenthood is, by far, the hardest thing I have ever had to do in my life (in part because I try to do it well). It has also been the most rewarding thing I've ever done in my life, but if you are not prepared to spend the time, the effort, and the money on a child, do not have a child. No child should grow up unloved or neglected. This is yet another reason why abortion rights are so important.

Not to mention growing up unwanted and likely poor in a shithole state like Louisiana that doesn't care about you AFTER you become an actual person by being born..

[-] DaDragon@kbin.social 1 points 3 weeks ago

Not from the point of view of most Republicans. You can make the claim that abortion pills ‘kill’ 100% of people in a pregnant person. If abortion is murder, then abortion pills must be placed on a similar level to rat poison or cyanide. Ironically, neither is actually a controlled substance…

[-] grue@lemmy.world 5 points 3 weeks ago

I understand the point you're making (the exclusion of the mother counting as a person is a nice touch, BTW). However, I think it's important to be clear that they are not entitled to their delusional point of view. Abortion pills being safer than acetaminophen is a matter of medical fact, and is not actually up for debate no matter how butthurt they get about it.

Cis women being forced to understand what it’s like being trans.

[-] henfredemars@infosec.pub 13 points 3 weeks ago

That’s pretty messed up, but you’re not wrong. I wish we could let people do what they want with themselves. Is that so hard?
