anti-abortion billboard targets African-American women

Here's the link:

I'm not really sure what else to say other than this: if the most dangerous place for an zygote-African-American is in fact in the womb, I wonder if the same people who put up this ad supported Congress's recent decision to defund a place to get pre-natal care. Oh wait, the only "dangers" they care about are the woman's choice.

Death penalty for exercising Constitutional rights...and beyond

Recently I became outraged by Representative Bobby Franklin's attempts to make miscarriages punishable by death. You can read all about it here. Though a small, secret part of me is happy because I believe, or fervently hope, that this will be the death knell of the anti-choice movement. Franklin's idiotic bill takes anti-abortion to its logical extreme. If abortion is murder, then a miscarriage is manslaughter. And since women may conceive and miscarry without knowing it, every woman must be examined every month to be sure she did not murder a zygote American unknowingly. It is my hope that rational minded people will see this, and by extension the entire anti-abortion movement, as the farce that they are.
