He was so ignorant of sex & reproduction that he believed a visible human-like fetus developed “within seconds” of sexual intercourse. Here's how he could shut down every abortion facility in America…
After this handmaid's tale is settled law . . . the cherry-on-top for the GOP (Legislature & The Extreme Court) is to reintroduce SLAVERY.
Here's lookin' at you, Clarence.
If that isn’t some fu@ked up manufactured BULLSH!T by epic perverts! The Republican Party has gone full on sexual debauchery, perversion and savagery. Trying to force this kind of grossly reprehensible sexually menacing diatribe of hatred toward women is some kind of “law”? No, it is not. It’s not a law of nature, not a religious law, not a reflection of how men see women. It is, however, a statement of fact that anything that kept women as property regardless of how absurd, like a man with a broken, obsessive sexual self-loathing perversion, was good enough as a means to an end, and men didn’t care what women thought. We had nothing to counter with.
Trying to use this convoluted logic into forcing women back into chattel by associating with this madness is obviously a sexual preoccupation Republicans have. They’re all pretzeled up over penises and vaginas. They always have been. I would say this is laughable, but, SCOTUS is thumbing their noses at America. That’s what concerns me about this bunch of repressed sexual deviants.
So legislation was based on one man's perverted view of human sexuality?! OMG!
When I was a teen, The only method of abortion was a close hanger and knitting needle, and deaths from self abortions were too common. The Romans used a herbal abortificent, research needs to be conducted and spread via the internet.
Another method was throwing themselves downstairs, seldom worked, more likely to cause death or serious injury.
This is where we are headed all because of some impaired and insecure males, who can't erect unless they dominate, and believe that a woman who rejects the fetus is rejecting him (his mini me).
It has nothing to do with protecting life, and everything to do with reinstating male dominance, poor things,who knew that some men were so insecure, that masculinity was an act, so tenuous, it even leads to road rage and aggression.
Also explains soccer riots.
The right wingers just want more slaves. I grew up on a ranch and saw it all the time. If the animals would not procreate on their own, they would be artificially inseminated. The Republicans suffer from crotch high morals. They conveniently overlook their desire to retroactively abort about 98% of the planet and their greed for money and power. They like to covet everything, including thy neighbor's wife. The religious right are certifiably insane and they suffer from narcissism. The fetuses are better off aborted then having to be around the parasitic lunatics. The fetuses will go back to God all others have to earn their way to heaven not brown-nose their way. Only false religions allow brown nosing.
This is entirely possible, because creepy ridiculous Republicans do not know when to quit. They also don't use their prefrontal cortex to weigh the consequences.
Law professor Maya Manian was on C-Span Friday, and she described what the Republicans are doing is like a game of Jenga. They will keep pulling out a block till all the reproductive rights women deserve crumble. It seems Comstock is that block.
The Vessel is a movie about a group called "Women on Waves". They have fought anti-abortion laws by taking the procedures and pills off-shore. To hell with these right-wing religious crazies. They are going to lose even more races, but not before they make women miserable. My money is on all the ingenious women of the world---they aren't going to let them win.
History again is CRITICAL to make available to public, which is being threatened as republicans are BANNING BOOKS, ALL HISTORY and INFORMATION must be available to every lifelong hardworking LAW ABIDING TAXPAYERS. Now to this FOOLISH, DANGEROUS and based on an IGNORANT individual Comstock, who was consumed & CONTROLLED by his OWN PERSONAL IGNORANCE and was consumed by his mother, WHO HATED SEX, to base a NATIONAL LAW that reverses every female of birthing ability is pure and INSANITY, SLAVERY AND IF THIS WASN’T so damaging to America’s females futures for generations to come could be considered a JOKE! To allow the republicans, who are locked into this BACKWARD, DISRESPECTFUL AND DEMONIC process is INJUSTICE pure and simple, however, currently with the MANIPULATION, that RAPIST, PEDOPHILE trump of innocent children boys & girls (9-14), PREFERENCE to CONTROL & THREATEN, PLUS the numerous adult women trumps is accused of sexually assaulting, the recent J. Carroll’s WON CASE, has opened a pandoras VORTEX to allow perverts locked in a desire to CONTROL EVERY FEMALE period!
I knew about Comstock and the Comstock Act, but I didn't know he believed that a "visible human-like fetus developed 'within seconds' of sexual intercourse." Anyone else suspect that plenty of anti-choicers still believe something similar?
Where did all these crazies come from? Have they always been there or are they just now feeling emboldened?
Yes, high time to look behind the proverbial curtain at Comstock, his Bill, and the appalling legal status of women in society at the time. If you did work that earned a few pennies, those pennies belonged to your daddy or husband. You owned nothing, could inherit nothing. Your husband's sex slave, of course. If you wanted out of marriage, your children were property of their father. Comstock's bill was supported by the male medical establishment, who lost trade to midwives and woman-friendly abortionists. (p.366, "Other Powers" Barbara Goldsmith, 1998) Thom doesn't cover Comstock's special status as "Postal Inspector" including at-whim armed seizures and jailing. And let us not overlook book-burning! Comstock bragged of burning "134,000 pounds of (what he deemed) 'obscene' books, ...." These included books by Dante, Cervantes, Plutarch and Aeschylus, Shakespeare and many Bible selections. (Ibid. p371) Incidentally, you were a little too sub-human to be competent to testify in court, not to mention vote.(1920)
