”The life of each human being begins with fertilization, cloning, or its functional equivalent, irrespective of sex, health, function or disability, defect, stage of biological development, or condition of dependency, at which time every human being shall have all the legal and constitutional attributes and privileges of personhood.”
"FERTILIZATION- The term ‘fertilization’ means the process of a human spermatozoan penetrating the cell membrane of a human oocyte to create a human zygote, a one-celled human embryo, which is a new unique human being."
The above is some of the text that appears in the H.R. 212 - The Sanctity of Life Act bill currently in Congress and endorsed by Republicans Paul Broun, Mr. Akin and Mr. Ryan among others. In total this bill is endorsed by a total of 53 Congressmen and 3 Congresswomen. How there can there be Republican women that do not understand that the fundamental goal of the GOP is to overturn Roe vs. Wade is beyond me. If this bill passes, which I doubt, it will grant personhood to any fertilized egg, regardless of how it got fertilized, excluding incest or rape as a valid reason to terminate a pregnancy. The life of the mother will also be removed, how can you determine which person has a right to live and which one doesn't?
This is the ultimate assault on a woman's right to control her life and her destiny. This bill is a definitive invasion of her privacy. I can't think of a valid reason other than future slavery, that the GOP might have to be so determined in getting involved in what transpires in a woman's vagina and uterus. Vagina envy? Not getting enough? Making sure that even son of bitches leave a little bastard for posterity? I don't know what their reason is, but it is very dangerous.
While the GOP is creating more and more personhood - now we have clots and corporations proudly sporting the title of "personhood" granted by the far Right while women are becoming lesser people under the law. I am yet to see a law that will diminish by one iota the right of men, those rights remain intact. There is no doubt that for the religious Right a pair of testicles and what most of the times its a joke of a penis are far more important and valuable than a vagina or an uterus. To think that every single one of them were raised by a woman and that they in turn hate women so much as to do everything in their power to place them in the kitchen.
"The Sanctity of Life" What a joke! This coming from a group of people that thrive on wars, where thousands of our youth get slaughtered. This coming from a group that looses no sleep when sending someone to death row even when there is a possibility of that person being innocent. This coming from a group that worship guns which is nothing else but an instrument of death. But we have to believe that they are pro-life.
This charitable group of people that are holier than thou are also working diligently in removing funds from medicaid, medicare and welfare... so they can increase the overly obscene defense budget. Once more they are proving that they don't give a damn for a child that is alive and kicking... only the oocyte, embryo and fetus are sacred, a child can go to hell for all they care. The Religious Right doesn't care about life, how can they when they hunt doctors that practice abortions and kill them? Anyone that believe that they believe in life while committing murder is a big hypocrite; and I don't care that they are protecting the unborn "baby"... It is not a baby until it breathes air, it's a cocyte or an embryo but NOT a baby. Killing a doctor that is practicing what up to know is a legal service is MURDER; two wrongs will never result in one right, sorry.
This bill H.R. 212, doesn't specify what the penalty or sentence would be if a woman uses a hanger to terminate her pregnancy or what a doctor's penalty will be for performing an abortion to save the mother's life. This of course it's not mentioned because it will be a matter of the State where the "murder" of the oocyte was committed. If it is a death penalty State, they'll fry the mother or the mother and the doctor, if one was involved. If it is a no death penalty State, then they will be sentenced to life in prison. Absurd!
When a bill is put together by men who have never experienced rape, who will never know what it is to be pregnant and not being able to afford a child or hating that child because it is the product of rape or incest, when these men think that they know more than a woman about the subject or what decision works for her best interest, when these men think they are so righteous as to force upon women their views, then these women are being raped by their government. These women are being raped over and over again and they are being forced to put their lives at risk, unnecessarily. Self-performed abortions have taken place since the beginning of time, usually resulting in the perforation of the uterus and the death of both mother and child, but the GOP couldn't care less.
Another bill has been introduced (H.J. Res. 110) to amend the Constitution regarding parental rights. This bill provides the parents "the liberty to direct the upbringing and education of the child." It does not provide any exceptions, which means that a rapist will have an equal voice as the victim when it pertains to their offspring. Ridiculous!
These Republicans are the only murderers here with an insatiable thirst for blood. They don't care who dies; they just want to look "Christian" enough in the eyes of the Evangelical, Religious Right who are the ones filling their pockets for them to do their dirty deeds.
