Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, January 30, 2014

Laura Chapin: Judging by the early results, ladyparts may yet again shut the whole thing down for the Republican Party in the next election cycle. They're certainly providing some interesting twists in the 2016 Republican primary, even as the party doubles down on attacking reproductive rights in the 2014 midterms. ... Protip to the Republicans and Mike Huckabee: when you've been trolled by Cosmopolitan magazine and Miley Cyrus, you're losing the single women's vote. And a whole lot of other women besides.

If by that you mean abortion, it is a non-reproductive right. Get your terms straight.

"Lady parts" is good. Yes, very good. Although there's always the fallback term: "Girlie bits".

Forced birthing is every bit as odious to free people as forced abortion.

'forced birthing'...hey is that like being extorted into supporting baby killing through taxes and such..

or perhaps having tax money STOLEN to pay for birth control for women of various names unsuitable for posting here??

libs love forced anything as long as it's the rest of us being forced into their sewer.

and we're not haunted by any of this. it's about a contrasting opinion of the euro socialist government run by our third world banana republic dictator with his pen and his phone.

and as always in those places and government those contrasting voices must be silenced by any means necessary.

Actually there is a debate among some feminists as to whether such terms are exclusive and unfair to transgendered women who don't have their genitalia "recoded". A word like "lady parts" indicates that one has to have a vagina to be considered a women and that is not fair.

I didn't make that up.

You mean huge tax deductions for having 19 children? Or are you referring to your hero Dubya's cluster-bombing of Iraqi women and babies who happened to be between him and Iraq's oil? Or don't you define blowing up brown people as "murder"? My Bible says "Thou shall not kill" without any color coding. What does yours say?

I thought you had long ago accepted the legality of abortion (way back in the 1970s it became, as you like to say "settled law").

And it seems YOUR libertarian side is hiding under the sheets of YOUR Republican side on this. You for freedom or against it?

Besides, aren't you the guys who ----- and Moan about too many unwed mothers collecting welfare. Wouldn't easy access to ALL forms of birth control reduce that?

Flippity-floppity? Or just sucking and blowing again?

By that, aflac, I assume you mean the traditional Christian policy of blowing up of LEGAL abortion clinics, murdering doctors in their churches and trying to shut down other SCOTUS approved methods of family planning. Are you with America or with the bombers?

No, that term refers to the prospect of having another human being (even though they won't acknowledge that) physically inhabiting part of your body for almost a year, even if you never intended to conceive it and took precautions. That's quite different from having your money extorted from you to pay for things you morally object to. (Although being forced to into 18+ years of indentured servitude for a child you never intended to conceive comes a lot closer than the other things you mentioned.)

libs love forced anything as long as it's the rest of us being forced into their sewer.

That's just a dumb comment and undermines your argument.

Another pig brain yammering on about what a victim it is because its being taxed into the sewer etc etc etc. Boohoo blah blah.

Liberal ideologs stealing your money to kill fetuses.

So... in your mind, only liberals enjoy the benefits that the solution of fetal abortion offers and gosh darn it that makes you mad?

Do you think you would be less mad if all those aborted fetuses were allowed to be born and you were supporting them or partially supporting them?
How many are you willing to support?
How many babies do you support now?

This is circumstance your gracious god has bestowed upon the earth.

The potential of an woman when left to her natural devices inclination and libido a woman can make 1 baby per year... some times 2, rarely 3 or 4 or more
The potential of an average man left to his natural devices, general inclination and libido, can make 1 or more every day.

Taking these odds into consideration and adding to it the burden of responsibility it places on everyone. How do you intend to stop pregnancies from happening or insure all pregnancies are carried to full term and the resulting child be taken care of until it is old enough to care for itself so you don't feel "forced" to pay for doing anything you think is wrong?

Here are just some of the methods that have been tested so far.

Spay, neuter or render sterile humans, Been tried doesn't work.
Condemn them to eternal damnation. Been tried doesn't work.
Selectively breeding. Been tried doesn't work.
Promote celibacy and abstinence. Been tried doesn't work.
Postpone mating. Been tried doesn't work
Wars. Been tried doesn't work
Prayer, Been tried doesn't work
Starvation: Been tried doesn't work.
Capitalism, communism, socialism. Been tried doesn't work.

An important point to consider is at this juncture in time over population of human beings is not only a threat to humankind itself but to every species of living things on the planet. How do you intend to remedy the real threat that poses?

Here is something else: Thus far the only two processes that are the most successful means of population control and least messy are prevention of fertilization via artificial means, and post fertilization abortion... and in extreme cases infanticide.

I am going to assume by all the noise you make regarding the matter you must have a much better alternative than anything that has been put to test in 30,000 years of humanity trying to reign in or control the impulse to reproduce. If only someone would listen to you. Okay I'm all ears. Please oh brilliant one... do share it with us... what is the answer?

If we're talking about this in terms of population control, how is infanticide any more extreme than post fertilization abortion?

I'm not convinced this is a real threat, "at this juncture in time". For one thing, nature has a way of correcting for this, whether it's by decreased fertility rates, or natural disasters, or the population receiving signals making them sentient that overpopulation is an issue. So even if this an issue people should be thinking about (and I think it is), exaggerating the threat will at best turn people off or at worst against it, just like the discussions about man-made pollution and climate/environmental changes.

Conservatives are scared of lady parts. Just look at the Middle East. A conservative religious stronghold.

Look to your future conservatives, the Middle East. Limited education, religion rules the government, women have no rights, sexuality doesn't exist, sex doesn't exist, the upper class rules, poor people are expendable, no middle class, no social security, no welfare, no minorities, everyone has AKs and rocket launchers, no taxes...

I can't imagine why liberals don't understand the utopia they have envisioned for us.

#29 | POSTED BY SENTINEL AT 2014-01-31 09:18 PM | REPLY | FLAG:SO?

I agree nature has a way of correcting these things. 90% of everything that has ever lived and risen to a place of dominance on this planet is now extinct and our species will go the way or the dinosaurs and everything else. New life forms will emerge on this little dirt ball spinning in space that we call home just as it has done since organic life began here.

That is not the issue I was addressing. I was targeting the right wing hissy fit over birth control and or abortion when they haven't come up with better solutions. Most of their complaints are about the circumstances arising from meeting the demands of a growing population and how they flat out resent having to give up an inch in order to do it. Like it or not... its all redistribution.

As far as reduced fertility.... great apes which is what humans are... when compared to most living species already have reduced fertility.. Two nipples as opposed to eight. Single births as opposed to litters.

BTW I am not exaggerating a threat just noticing what is occurring on this planet as the human organism grows. We are very efficient.

No argument here with the right failing to come up with better solutions than the things they've been railing against lately. Thing is, both sides do this, in a cyclical fashion, as if they're tag teaming to see who's Tweedle-Dee and who's Tweedle-Dumber. It's just sad that we can't have a an actual philosophical debate about issues like this without all the partisan crap coming in, from both sides.

The "hissy fit" you're referring to is just the usual posturing from disingenuous politicians and politicos to try to appeal to the people who haven't caught on to the insincerity of most in their profession. And as for those who seem to just blindly ape the talking points they hear, let's not pretend this is unique to any one group of people. We've all gone through that phase, at one point or another, assuming we've actually gotten past it...
