If Texas Governor Greg Abbott can eliminate all rapists from his state, then why hasn’t he already done it? This is the new thing for Republicans. Just say some incredibly stupid shit and your base will eat it up. You can’t try that nonsense with Democrats.
Greg Abbott has signed the bill basically banning abortions in Texas. It does allow abortions within the first six weeks, before most women know they’re pregnant. Abbott acted like that was plenty of time for someone to know they’re pregnant…not that he’d know from personal experience…which also gives another example of why men shouldn’t be legislating women’s bodies.
These motherfuckers don’t even understand how mysterious lady parts work, and they want to legislate it? That’s like regulating the internet and asking, “Is the internet on computers now?”.
When asked why Texas is going to force women to carry their rapists’ babies, Abbott said “Texas will work tirelessly to make sure that we eliminate all rapists from the streets of Texas by aggressively going out and arresting them and prosecuting them and getting them off the streets.”
You know, the streets of Texas where the streets are full of rapists on the streets that are in Texas with all the streets and raping in Texas. And after we eliminate the rapists from the streets of Texas and eliminate them from the Texas streets, we’ll go after the rapists on the sidewalks of Texas where they will also be eliminated. You can’t avoid Texas justice, you rapists, just by going from the streets in Texas to the sidewalks in Texas, you Texas rapists, you.
OK, if you can eliminate all the rapists from the streets of Texas, then why didn’t you do it before you made aborting your rapist’s baby illegal?
So, why haven’t you already banned rape in Texas, Greg Abbott? Do you hate women so much that you had the ability to rid your state of rapists but will now only do it because you’re being criticized over forcing women to have their babies? How did you break the news to the rapists, I mean, since you obviously care about them more than you do about women?
Here’s the thing: You’re not punishing rapists. You’re punishing women. In fact, you’re punishing women for being rape victims. This is an anti-women law.
There are about 18,000 rapes in Texas every year. Let me rephrase that. There are about 18,000 REPORTED rapes in Texas every year. And why would you report a rape if the state isn’t going to take it seriously? At this very moment, there are over 5,000 rape kits in Texas waiting to be tested.
What untested rape kits mean is that there are 5,000 rapes in Texas being ignored. Nobody’s prosecuting or even trying to find the rapists. Hey, Greg Abbott, don’t you have to find the rapists before you can get rid of them?
With 5,000 untested rape kits sitting on shelves in Texas, that tells me Texas doesn’t give a flying fuck about women. But they’re going to go out and eliminate rape. They have a better chance of eliminating BBQ, Tex-Mex, monster trucks, racism, big stupid hats, and Blue Bell ice cream than they do of getting rid of rapists.
What does a rapist in Texas look like? To start with, they probably look a lot like Greg Abbott. This abortion ban rapes women.
