Georgia Heartbeats


cjones04072019

Ever since the Supreme Court case Roe v Wade made abortion legal in 1973, wingnuts have been doing everything they can to turn the clock back to 1873.

Kentucky and Mississippi have recently passed six-week abortion bans. Republican lawmakers in Tennessee, South Carolina, Ohio, and Florida are considering similar bills. Instead of mandating no abortions after six weeks, Georgian troglodytes have passed a ban outlawing abortion if a heartbeat can be detected. They’re calling it the “fetal heartbeat” bill.

The governor, who recently won election after he removed thousands of black Georgians off the voter rolls and oversaw the election from his position as Secretary of State, will sign the bill after the legislative session ends, which is today. The law will take effect in 2020.

The exceptions to the law are cases that involve rape or incest on the condition that a police report is filed. There is also an exception when a doctor determines the pregnancy would cause death or bodily harm to the mother or the fetus would not be able to live after birth.

The law will be challenged in court by the ACLU, and celebrities along with the Writers Guild of America are encouraging Hollywood to cease all productions in the state, such as The Walking Dead. There’s a joke in there somewhere. Georgia had 455 TV or film productions shot in the state in 2018, representing $2.7 billion in direct spending.

This law will become one of the most restrictive abortion bans in the nation as a heartbeat can often be detected as early as six weeks, which is often earlier than many women even know they’re pregnant. For now, abortion is legal in Georgia within the first 20 weeks. And, if the woman is pregnant from rape, it puts additional pressure on her to file a police report. The next step will be a law mandating that the raped, pregnant woman wear a scarlet letter.

The AP reports that the measure was approved by 92 votes, just one vote more than the majority needed to pass out of the 180-member House. Republicans don’t care about having a consensus when it comes to abortion. They don’t really care about anything when it comes to the issue as long as they can ban it and force their fundamental religious beliefs on the rest of the nation.

They don’t care that they stole a Supreme Court seat in their effort to ban it. They don’t care that they had to change the rules of Senate confirmation for SCOTUS justices because Donald Trump isn’t going to nominate consensus candidates. They don’t care that they put an accused sexual abuser on the court. They don’t care that they have to sacrifice their ethics and morals for Trump in order to ban abortion. They don’t care about facts as they still use the debunked “gotcha” videos from Project Veritas that attempted to frame Planned Parenthood for selling aborted baby body parts. They don’t care that a terrorist shot up a Planned Parenthood clinic, killing three people based on the Project Veritas hoax. They don’t care that this will increase the maternal mortality rates in Georgia, where it’s already one of the worst in the country.

They also don’t care about the actual babies because after they’re born, they do everything in their power to deny them welfare, school lunches, medication, health insurance, education, etc. They only care about their religious morality, when it fits, and legislating what women can do with their bodies.

If men could give birth then abortion would have been the very first Amendment in our Constitution…unless Viagra had been invented at that time, then maybe the second. Today, this nation wouldn’t have a “pro-choice” movement. People would be shot for merely suggesting a man carry a child to term. Abortion protesters would be banned from clinics. Nobody would be bombing or shooting clinics. The first abortion doctor would be on Mt. Rushmore and replace Lincoln on the five dollar bill. Sure, Lincoln freed the slaves, but Doctor Everythingsgonnabealright got me out of shooting a six-pound human out of my pee hole. “You detected a heartbeat?” Are you insane?

If men could give birth, no woman would be allowed to legislate abortion. go legislate your own nether regions.

Republicans believe abortion shouldn’t be performed if a heartbeat is detected. I have a similar belief. Abortion should not be legislated or decided by anyone who doesn’t have a uterus.

Planned Background Checks


cjones12022015

I’m not saying if you are against abortion that you’re too crazy to own a gun. There are a lot of rational people out there who think abortion is wrong. A lot of people live in a gray area, while being personally opposed to abortion they don’t believe it should be illegal.

I’m talking about the militant “pro life” people. The kind of person that would stand outside a clinic and scream “slut” and “murderer” at someone who is making the toughest decision of their life. The type of person who can’t talk about a shooting at a clinic without making a reference to murdered babies. These are terrible people who are not rational, can’t comprehend, and probably shouldn’t be allowed to own a squirt pistol. Don’t believe how just utterly horrible these people are? Go to Youtube and watch a few protests outside abortion clinics. If you have any sort of decency you won’t be able to finish watching. It’s very sickening.

It starts from the top up. Cheryl Sullenger “was” a terrorist. She’s a convicted felon. In 1998 she pleaded guilty to conspiring to blow up an abortion clinic. Today she’s the senior policy advisor for Kansas-based anti-abortion group Operation Rescue. While working for the group in 1999 she provided the court dates of physician George Tiller to Scott Roeder, who then assassinated Tiller.

Troy Newman is the head of Operation Rescue. Newman wrote in his book “that the United States government’s responsibility to “properly deal with the blood-guilty … rightly involves executing convicted murderers, including abortionists, for their crimes in order to expunge bloodguilt from the land and people.” The guy was deported from Australia for being, Australian authorities said, “a threat to good order.” Fortunately for him, this is America. We don’t have good order.

Newman has endorsed Ted Cruz. Cruz, meanwhile, says the suspected shooter of the Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood is a “transgender leftist activist.”

Carly Fiorina, who helped spread the lies that PP was harvesting dead babies, wails that the left is now attacking the pro life movement over the shootings. The pro life people say we don’t know the shooter’s motives. Yeah, it’s real hard to figure out the motive of someone who walks into a Planned Parenthood clinic, start shooting the place and then tell two police officers afterward “no more body parts.” We’re still scratching our heads over his intentions.

The body parts thing he’s referring to are the videos made by a pro life group. The videos are deceptively edited to make it appear PP is harvesting babies and making money from it. The videos have been proven, exhaustively, to be false and chock full of lies. Still, pro life people claim they’re real. Republicans in Congress want hearings over it. Never mind that seven states have conducted investigations because of the videos and all seven have cleared PP.

In the four months following the release of the videos, there have been at least four suspected arsons of abortion clinics and at least five cases of vandalism. The FBI has also reported an increase in the number of attacks on reproductive health care facilities across the country since the videos were released. On top of all this, anti-choice groups name clinic workers on their websites. It works kinda like Sarah Palin’s cross hair map of Democrats.

Since 1995, there have been a total of 5,147 violent incidents recorded at US abortion clinics, not including 2015. They include 922 reported incidents of vandalism, 663 anthrax or bioterrorism threats, 354 stalking incidents and 204 reported death threats. And yet, Republicans don’t want to call these people terrorists.

That’s why these people can’t be trusted. They spread hateful rhetoric, call people who are in a lawful practice “murderers, and when violence increases they act confused and say they’re not complicit. They even have the gall to play victim. Meanwhile, conservatives rage that Al Sharpton, President Obama and Black Lives Matter is encouraging people to shoot cops. Go figure.

The mentally challenged should not be allowed to own weapons. The militant “pro life” people, I’m not sure they should even be let outside…or run for president.

Little Snot Machine

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.

Pro-Life Film Editing

I actually got this idea while watching Megyn Kelly’s show on Fox News. Yeah, I was watching Fox News.

This pro-life group went to a Planned Parenthood clinic and secretly taped them….again. They edited the footage…again. Planned Parenthood sells aborted fetal body parts for science which is legal as long as they don’t a profit from it. Megyn was really outraged the Planned Parenthood lady could discuss such details while eating a salad. I’m not sure what sort of meal is acceptable dining while discussing fetal body parts. Megyn Kelly didn’t get into that but she was really outraged about that salad.

So now Republicans in Congress wants a bunch of investigations even though there’s been no evidence or even genuine accusations of abuse. I’m sure this will as productive as most GOP led House investigations.

This cartoon will not get a lot of prints. It’ll go over like gangbusters online though. I’m ready for the hate mail now.
