Quote of the Day: “There is no male equivalent for abortion”

Posted by: ST on February 22, 2012 at 6:00 pm

A pure and simple truth from Don Surber, in response to yet another ridiculous attempt by a “feminist” politicos at “gender equality” when it comes to “invasive medical procedures” mandated by government – usually all related to aborting an unborn child, of course. Story via the Florida Times-Union:

ATLANTA – Democrats in the [Georgia] legislature plan to show their disagreement with an anti-abortion bill by holding a hearing today on their own “anti-vasectomy bill.”

The press release from the House Democratic Caucus said the goal is to show what they call hypocrisy of a mostly male legislature passing a law on women’s reproduction.

Tuesday’s news release announcing it included an apparent tongue-in-cheek comment.

“Thousands of children are deprived of birth in this state every year because of the lack of state regulation over vasectomies,” said Rep. Yasmin Neal, D-Riverdale, author of the Democrats’ bill. “It is patently unfair that men can avoid unwanted fatherhood by presuming that their judgment over such matters is more valid than the judgment of the General Assembly, while women’s ability to decide is constantly up for debate throughout the United States.”

[...]

Rep. Doug McKillip’s proposal, House Bill 954, seeks to outlaw abortions after the stage of development at which the fetus can sense pain. He said current research pegs that point at 20 weeks after conception, seven weeks shorter than the cutoff for abortion on demand set by the 1973 Roe v Wade decision by the U.S. Supreme Court.

McKillip, an Athens Republican, was not amused when he was asked about the Democrats’ stunt.

“I think it’s disappointing that they would make light of something as important as protecting life,” he said. “It’s just not a joking matter, and it’s a time for serious issues and serious discussion.”

And isn’t it the height of stupidity to try and suggest that an attempt to pass HB 954 is “hypocrisy” because it’s being done “by a mostly male legislature” – as IF THAT SHOULD EVEN MATTER? Of course, if the “mostly male” state legislature was trying to pass a bill making abortion MORE accessible, their sex wouldn’t matter and their opinions would be held in the absolute highest regard. In reality, all the GA Democrats have done in this instance is just to how how INTOLERANT they are of opinions that are different from their own. And don’t even get me started on the undercurrent of philosophical sexism at play here.

Feminists. They truly make me ill. Now excuse me while I go gulp down a couple of Extra Strength Tylenol and try to forget for five minutes about all the vile, selfish pro-aborts we have in this country.

    BS. Murder is murder. Killing some dude in a knife fight is a man’s version of abortion, and it puts you in jail where you belong.

    One thing that they also fail to mention anytime they dismiss the “male” input on abortion – the fact that it was an ALL MALE panel of justices that decided Roe v. Wade.

  3. JohnFLob says:

    Apparently Rep. Yasmin Neal, D-Riverdale and her fellow Democrats do not understand even the most basic fundamentals of human reproduction.

    An abortion, for what ever reason, is the actual termination of a human entity.

    A vasectomoy is not the destruction of human life.

    Tubal ligation is a female vasectomy. Both are sterilization ops, and are not involving forming life that is ended. There is no logical comparison here.

    Do these women know how hard us men have to work to have a single sperm make it through the gauntlet in order to fertalize a single egg? They have no right to vote on anything that involves conception if that conception involves a male sperm then. Why is it that “choice” only means being able to kill an innocent life but doesn’t enter the equation if the “choice” is whether or not to have unprotected sex? It seems to me they already had their “choice”. The same goes for the men. Men don’t have the same option, however, because we’re responsible for our “choices” for at least the next twenty-one years and rightly so.

    More of the same…women’s issues trump men’s issues? I know one thing that my health care insurer deems these issues as elective and doesn’t cover them. That includes birth control pills, tubal ligation and vasectomies and abortions. They also don’t cover OB care for a dependent. Which I found out the hard way with my daughter who made the choice of adoption, so the adoptive parents paid for a majority of the medical bill.

    The smokescreen they use is “access”. Everyone has access to common sense which costs nothing. Everyone has access to education…how to prevent pregnancy. It’s biology folks! And finally, everyone has access to SELF CONTROL. If you can’t afford a child, then don’t do anything to make that a possiblity!

    Of course, the world has just about forgotten the true purpose of intercourse…albiet a pleasurable experience for all…it is for procreation. Just because we have found ways to bypass the biological outcome thru scientific methods doesn’t stop that from being the Number One reason for it’s existence in the first place. It’s the way we were created. It seems that since we have tried to bypass this purpose, we have created a cultural Frankenstein of morality. This little diatribe in the halls of a state legislature proves the point.

    If some mass murderer is about to be executed, Liberals will protest for two weeks and scream their outrage. However, mention abortion and it’s high on their list! The idea that the federal government is involved in handing out contraception and all this tado in political debate demonstrates where our focus has been—and it is not THE DEBT OR THE MASSIVE SPENDING POLICIES IN DC.
