Out of Touch v.2
Not to be outdone by South Dakota, Georgia anti-choicers are holding an informational meeting tomorrow to build support for a bill which bans abortion.

The bill is highly technical and clearly based on the law.* Just look....

The State of Georgia has the duty to protect all innocent life from the moment of conception until natural death. We know that life begins at conception. After three decades of legal human abortion, it is now abundantly clear that the practice has negatively impacted the people of this state in many ways, including economic, health, physical, psychological, emotional, and medical well-being. These, too, are areas of legitimate concern and duty of the state.

Um...WHAT?!?! Nearly 1/4 of all Georgia adults are illiterate. 15% of Georgia women live in poverty. 40-50,000 people experience at least one day of homelessness a year in Atlanta alone. How are they protecting innocent lives?

*I kid, I kid

"This is classical Republican hypocrisy.

They say they want to protect innocent life, but they don't mind cutting the WIC program, which gives assistance to needy mothers and children born into poverty.

They will cut off Government assistance to children in poverty because their parents meet the Rush Limbaugh definition of 'dead beat'.

Well fuck the Georgia legislature and their clumsily yielded emotional cudgel and their cracker-ass retard Governor."

Hmm... the pro-life side makes perfect sense to me! I mean, maybe the aborted "babies" would all be geniuses and would know how to solve all of our georgia-based problems. Yes, I like it!

If you would only just open your eyes and see all of the social, economic, physical, and psychological reasons to ban abortion, Kristen... (On a related note, check out the book "Freakonomics;" it makes a compelling argument about Roe v Wade being the main reason that violent crime suddenly dropped in the 90s.)
