Stuff like this is really getting on my last nerve.

(Not the LGM response, but Megan's spew that prompted it.)

Anti-Choice Wingers love to compare the battle over the right to choice to slavery, which, you know, it sort of it, but not the way they think.  They've got some weird knot in their head where the fetuses are slaves in this analogy (how? What? whose selling those fetus down what river and exploiting them where, now?) and what they never do seem to see is the real exploitation and enslavement: the woman, whose body gets owned, if they have their way, not just for nine months, but often for the rest of her life.

Clearly, though, for that nine months: if the right-wing forced birthers have their way, the woman is enslaved, by them and the state: forced, by the state, to bear a child for the state.

I believe this is both immoral and illegal, under our laws.

I believe even a right-wing Christian could see that, if he or she could first see a woman as a human being: which, of course, he (and she) never actually can.

That's the root of the problem. I guess you know who I blame.
