Silly Texas

Possibility that an innocent unborn life with no central nervous system might be ended: It is necessary to legally mandate raping the mother with a device in order to prevent this risk.

Near-certainty that an innocent adult life with a central nervous system and a family might be ended: Eh, whatever.

And yes, I do mean “rape”. Shoving something up a woman’s private parts non-consensually is rape.

Mostly, though, I’m just stunned by the hypocrisy. If any state in this country could plausbly claim that they really care that much about human life, it ain’t Texas.

Doonesbury’s comics on this are a little darker than usual, but pretty much spot on.
