Anti Choice

Oppression With The Fringe On Top


It’s happening again. Another state is destroying women’s constitutional reproductive rights.

When one backward knuckle-dragging fucknut red state succeeds in destroying a freedom, then other backward fucknut states follow the lead.

Texas basically banned abortion, made it a criminal offense, and created a bounty-hunting business for anyone to report on a person receiving or giving an abortion. Yee-haw, motherfuckers.

Oklahoma, another yee-haw state, has copied Texas’ abortion restriction laws and has made ANY abortion illegal except to save the life of the pregnant woman. The governor has promised to sign every piece of legislation limiting abortion that reaches his desk. The new law would make performing an abortion or attempting to perform the procedure a felony punishable by a maximum fine of $100,000 or a maximum of 10 years in state prison, or both.  There’s another bill in progress that copies Texas’ bounty-hunter law.

With the bounty-hunter laws, you can report a person for receiving an abortion in Oklahoma and Texas, even if you don’t know that person and the abortion doesn’t affect you in any way. This law, allowing you to report and cash in on something that doesn’t affect you and isn’t your business, isn’t surprising when you realize most of the people who’ve been trying to destroy abortion rights don’t have a uterus.

I guarantee you this: If men could give birth, there would have been abortion pills in vending machines before we even thought about eradicating Polio. Cavemen would have invented the pill, and then the vending machines before they got around to the wheel and sliced bread. We wouldn’t even be talking about abortion except in sex-ed classes where students would have free condoms thrown at them. In Florida, Ron DeSantis would be teaching how to put a condom on a banana to kindergartners. Abortion would be as common as clipping your fingernails. And then if one religious zealot said out loud, “maybe there should be a few restrictions on abortion. I mean, doesn’t the fetus have rights? Isn’t it a person? Isn’t it…” He wouldn’t have finished that sentence because an angry mob would have beaten him to death with sticks, stones, and condom-wrapped bananas

There would be horror movies directed by men about men being forced to carry an abortion to term. That’s scarier than Jason Vorhees and Freddy Krueger riding into your bedroom on Jaws to a soundtrack provided by Nickelback.

But since men can’t get pregnant, they’re creating laws that will force rape victims to have their rapist’s babies. They’re forcing teenage girls to have their uncle’s babies.

Last Wednesday, Missouri Republicans passed a bill that allows family members to file wrongful death lawsuits. They’re banning “abortion-inducing drugs,” and defunding Planned Parenthood.

Federal Medicaid law protects every Medicaid patient’s right to choose their provider including Planned Parenthood. This does not fund abortions. There are other health treatments provided by Planned Parenthood like birth control, STI testing and treatment, cancer screenings, and other preventive services. But conservative men don’t care about those treatments as it doesn’t affect them. Other states that have “defunded” Planned Parenthood are Arkansas, Mississippi, and Texas. In Missouri, a state court said they can’t do this, but the legislature has ignored that ruling. This will also surely hit the 6-3 conservative majority Supreme Court.

The Democratic governor of Kentucky just vetoed an abortion-banning bill, but the Republicans will probably override it next week. In Maryland, the Republican governor VETOED a bill expanding abortion, but the Democratic majority in the state legislature overrode him.

Colorado, a blue state surrounded by abortion-restricting yee-haw states, signed a bill last week codifying abortion rights. The bill states, “The Reproductive Health Equity Act states that “every individual has a fundamental right to make decisions about the individual’s reproductive health care, including the fundamental right to use or refuse contraception; a pregnant individual has a fundamental right to continue a pregnancy and give birth or to have an abortion and to make decisions about how to exercise that right; and a fertilized egg, embryo, or fetus does not have independent or derivative rights under the laws of the state.” It also bans local governments from restricting abortion, like towns and counties in the district that sent Lauren Boebert to Congress.

Nebraska failed by two votes to advance a “trigger” bill that would have made abortion illegal immediately after Roe Vs. Wade is struck down by the Supreme Court because that’s exactly what Republicans are expecting.

The Supreme Court has allowed new abortion restrictions to stand in places like Texas, Mississippi, and Alabama. Republicans are chomping at the bit for a case to go before the Supreme Court that will finally give them the opportunity to ban abortions nationwide. I expect that to happen too. The pro-freedom people are all about banning freedom.

I think if we ban abortions then we need to also ban Viagra and all other erectile dysfunction medication. I researched this and I believe it’s a fact that nearly all abortions are created with the help of a penis. I’m also pretty sure every Republican male writing these abortion laws loves his penis and needs medication for his penis to work. It would explain why they’re so frustrated and angry.

I am being funny but I’m always funny when I’m serious. Democrats in each of these states need to try to attach riders to these bills that ban penis pills. Sure, they won’t survive but it’ll make a very loud point. The point will be that Republican men are totally opposed to their private parts being legislated. I can not wait to hear Ted Cruz give a passionate speech about dick rights.

Or at the very least, Democrats in these state legislatures should craft bills banning Taliban laws. Have fun with that.

My advice to women who live in yee-haw states is…move.

Music note: I listened to some Bob Seger last night while taking a walk and it got good to me. So I started listening to it again while drawing today and then it got very tired. Classic rock does that to me. I’ll go a long time without listening to an artist, and it’ll be good when I finally do…and then it’s too much and it’ll be like four years at least before I listen to another Bob Seger song. So, I switched over to Blondie who was nearby in the B’s. Yeah, that’s classic rock too, but it’s weird so it’s still fresh to me.

Republican Targets


Republicans are only outraged at Vladimir Putin now because they’re supposed to be. If the public was indifferent to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Republicans would either be silent about it or siding with Russia the way Tucker Carlson has. Even Donald Trump has seen it’s better to be silent on the war than siding with Putin after he called the guy a genius. It’s really hard to build support when you’re bombing baby hospitals and kindergartens.

And while there is support for Russia on the far right, there’s also support for Russia coming from the lunatic fringe that’s the far left. You have to wonder if the same signature is on both, Tucker Carlson’s and Ted Rall’s checks. Both of these individuals have a pro-Russia, anti-USA following they’re pushing Putin’s propaganda to.

The far-left uses the false equivalence of the United States’ invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan to claim we have no right to criticize Russia’s invasion. But those comparisons are almost as bad as the comparisons of prices of gas to coffee. You have a choice with coffee and you’re not consuming gallons of it a day, so stop with those moronic comparisons. And stop with the war comparisons.

The far-left lunatics forget that liberals were opposed to the war in Iraq. Liberals, not the leftists, are consistent. And while I personally protested the war in Iraq, I don’t see it as the same as Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. For starters, Ukraine is a democracy led by a democratically-elected president. Saddam Hussein was no Volodymyr Zelensky. And while the invasion of Iraq was illegal and based on lies, the United States had multiple partners. Putin only has Belarus which is another fascist nation. I supported our removing the Taliban and al Qaeda while not in favor of remaining in that nation for two decades. The war in Afghanistan was a NATO effort after the United States was attacked by terrorists that nation was harboring. We were attacked from Afghanistan. But even if you believe all three wars are identical, then why denounce two while supporting one? Why support Putin’s unprovoked attack on a democratic nation?

Also, a lot of Americans who initially supported the invasion of Iraq did so based on the lies they were told. Now if you’re supporting Putin, now you’re the liar. The Tuckers and Teds are repeating Putin’s lies. You hear “Nazi” a lot, but I bet there weren’t a lot of Nazis in that kindergarten or baby hospital he bombed this week.

But let’s get back to the Republicans. If they could, they’d make this war as partisan as they made the coronavirus pandemic. to them, support for Ukraine would be the same as supporting social distancing and face mask and vaccine mandates. They’d be crying about forcing kids to wear face masks to school while being silent about Ukrainian elementary schools being bombed. They’d all be like Ron DeSantis, who believe the worst thing in a school isn’t a Russian bomb, but the word “gay”. If they could, they’d ignore Putin’s attack on Ukraine’s democracy just like they ignored Putin’s attack on American democracy.

Oh, sure. They’re all outraged at Putin’s war crimes on Ukraine now, but they were fine with his crimes against the United States when they made gains off them. They were fine with Putin handing them the White House. They were fine with Putin’s puppet giving billionaires tax breaks. They were more than happy to make a cult leader out of the orange racist stooge Putin put in the Oval Office. And they were jubilant with the Supreme Court picks Vladimir Putin gave them.

Fact: Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, and Amy Coney Barrett would NOT be on the Supreme Court today, and for the next 30 years, if it wasn’t for Vladimir Putin. I am a radical because I believe every sitting federal judge who was nominated by Vladimir Putin, through his conduit Donald Trump, should step down.

The GOP acknowledges Putin is a bad guy today, but they were silent over the past half-decade when he was giving them shit. They were as silent about his attacks on the United States of America as they were each time an abortion clinic was attacked.

In November 2015, a deranged lunatic opened fire on a Planned Parenthood clinic in Colorado Springs. He killed three people and injured nine others. He attacked the clinic based upon right-wing lies that Planned Parenthood was harvesting baby body parts for profit. These lies were created by a conservative outlet that produced heavily manipulated videos to push their anti-choice agenda. This outlet is still in operation today. The GOP repeated these lies. They supported the actions that led to the attack.

A few months later, the 2016 presidential campaign began and none of the 16 (probably more) Republican candidates wanted to talk about the shooting. The entire Republican Party brushed it off despite having blood on its hands.

What would Republicans be saying if instead of Putin bombing a maternity hospital, he had bombed a Kyiv women’s clinic? Would they be silent or would they cheer? The only thing I’m certain of is that they wouldn’t condemn it.

What would they do? With the way Vladimir Putin is conducting his war and hitting civilian targets, we may find out.

Republicans who are just now opposing Vladimir Putin are a little too late for me.

Update on yesterday’s cartoon: I thought I would have been suspended on several social media platforms for yesterday’s cartoon by now, and maybe I still will. But, I haven’t been hit yet. It has now occurred to me, which is disturbing, that maybe the word in the cartoon isn’t a bad word to them. That’s messed up. I have been suspended for a lot less. Hell, I lost my first Instagram account for comparing anti-gay laws in Brunei, which gave the death sentence to LGBTQ people, to Chick-fil-A.

Music Note: I listened to The Police while creating today’s cartoon. Da-doo-doo-doo…

Carly Describes Another Video


cjones09202015

People who suffer cognitive dissonance are hard to figure out. They believe stuff that’s not true, even after it’s proven and pointed out to them. They’re still all “uh-uh.”

They believe Obama is a coming for their guns, he’s gone on an apology tour, he’s Muslim and wasn’t born in America. You can’t convince them the United States is not invading Texas, Obamacare has not installed death panels, Sharia Law is not being implemented, Eric Clapton did not write I Shot The Sheriff.

Don’t get them started on Climate Change.

Over the past few months the big lie are the videos of Planned Parenthood, which supposedly proves Planned Parenthood is chopping up dead babies and selling them to make a profit.

Now Republicans want to defund PP, despite the fact that abortion only accounts for three percent of it’s services and that government funds do not pay for abortion.

Despite the videos proven to be heavily edited, deceptive and pushing a lie, conservatives are still promoting them and using them for their argument. They’re even using these as their basis to try to shut down the government, again.

During Wednesday’s debate candidate Carly Fiorina wowed everyone with her performance, and she did a good job. She lied but but she did so convincingly. She went into great detail to describe a fetus taken out of a womb, and while its legs were still kicking a PP worker talked discussed keeping the baby alive so they can harvest the brain.

Yeah, nothing like that is in any of the 12 plus hours of these videos. Yet, Carly doesn’t have a problem being a liar. It was even pointed out to her by journalists that this scene is not in any of the content. She insisted it is and continues with her argument. This is like trying to convince someone roosters don’t lay eggs.

Having an opinion is fine. But there’s a difference between opinion and fact. If you’re anti choice, that’s fine, but I wonder how strong is your belief in your cause if you can’t stick to the truth. You have a weak argument if you need lies to advance your agenda.

I understand. You don’t think it’s a lie. It’s been proven as a lie, but you still believe in the lie. You probably have a bigger problem than being a liar. You might be a lunatic.

Now another one of them is running for president.

Little Snot Machine


cjones08162015

You never hear the Pro Life crowd cry about poor children starving. They don’t think the government should fund their school lunch. They want to cut education (so they stand a chance to be as dumb as they are). They definitely do not want them to have sex education in schools. They don’t want them to have insurance if the government has to assist. They’re in favor of stripping welfare away from a child if the father smokes marijuana. They don’t want the government do anything for that kid. They don’t even want to give kids in poverty cheese. Cheese! Have you seen school cheese? It’s almost a punishment forcing that upon kids.

If the kid is still in the womb then they’re all caring. It’s all they talk about. They don’t talk about what happens after the child is born. I guess it’s the Christian thing to care about a fetus but not the child. Of course in the Bible children were sacrificed so maybe it is the Christian thing to do.

They’re all about taking away funding from Planned Parenthood. Never mind the fact that abortions only account for 3% of what Planned Parenthood does. And never mind the fact that Planned Parenthood prevents a LOT of abortions and that federal funding does not pay for abortions. Hell, never mind the fact that Planned Parenthood is not harvesting fetus body parts for profit. These prolife wingnuts are so adamant about killing funding for Planned Parenthood that they’ll shut down the government over it.

Do an experiment on your own. Go to one of your Pro Life wingnut friend’s Twitter or Facebook account (Make sure you’re sober when you do this or you won’t be able to stomach the stupid, get angry and leave all sorts of smack talk and you’ll wake up to 128 notifications on your cell phone). Scroll back a few weeks and count how many times they have posted a meme or update on anything to do with abortions or Planned Parenthood. Now count how many times they’ve posted something out of concern for a living child. Don’t waste your time scrolling too far down past all the Jesus, Ann Coulter, and Ben Carson memes looking for that second thing because you’re not going to find it.

The good news about these people are that they are easily outsmarted. They’re not rational and they don’t have a grasp for reality so it should be easy to beat them at election time. Look at their presidential candidates. They believe one of these guys is going to win the presidency. The bad news is that there are so many of them, they lie, they spread misinformation, and they vote.

If men could get abortions there would be huge advances in science to prevent pregnancies and there would be safer abortions. There would not be any men against abortion, unless they’re fertile. There would be morning after Red Bull and Five-Hour Energy Abortion drinks and they would come in assorted flavors. Abortions would be sold at 7-11. They would have a Big Gulp-Big Bite-abortion special.
