Neither This Nor That
I suspect this will mostly be rants about politics and culture.
Friday, October 14th, 2011
The House Republicans keep saying that they don't have time to vote to create jobs because their Abortion ban is more pressing. After all, making it so that hospitals can turn away women who are bleeding to death from miscarriage is waaaay more important than something that would actually help people. Pro-life my hairy a**. Looks pro-Death to be to demand miscarriage be a death sentence. Think of all the women they can kill out of the approximately 30 million women who miscarry in this country every year. Pro-cancer. Pro-letting women bleed to death in front of the ER for no apparent reason. Not a single one of them explained how this was intended to create jobs or help the economy. I mean, yes, I can see how it's good for the funeral industry, but that can't have much of an economic impact, certainly not enough of one to justify the death, disabling, and/or emotional damage this would cause every single year.

Currently, the only people who emergency rooms can legally refuse to treat when they are literally bleeding to death are trans folk, because we are not generally considered people in this country. This is reprehensible enough. the Republicans want to make it legal to deny more than half of the US population emergency care also on the basis of Gender. What would Jesus do? Let innocent people bleed to death according to Republicans. I keep seeing Christians claiming their right to discriminate trumps the right of other people to actually live.
