Georgia State Rep England Relates to Farm Animals More than Women
Recently, George state Representative Terry England told a story that “Life gives us many experiences.” England went on to explain, “I’ve had the experience of delivering calves, dead and alive — delivering pigs, dead and alive. … It breaks our hearts to see those animals not make it.”
The purpose of this little tale was to supposedly support HB 954 which is a measure which would prohibit a woman from having an abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy. This controversial bill would even apply in situations where the fetus was not expected to survive.
This statement has angered many women, and men for that matter, as Rep. England pathetically compares livestock fetuses to human fetuses. Anyone with half a brain would know and understand that there is no comparison here. Therefore, Representative England must not even have half a brain.
What I heard was the rambling of a feeble-minded person who apparently has spent more quality time with pregnant farm animals than he has pregnant human women.
Georgia, I do feel so sorry for you. I hope you think twice before approaching the ballot box next time he is up for election. And it appears that there are many more you need to think about before voting as this bill passed as follows:
Yea (Y): 102 / Nay (N): 65 / Not Voting (-): 6 / Excused (E): 7
Once again, I shake my head wondering why our country is going backwards in time with women’s rights. But moreso, I am awaiting for all these anti-women bills and talk to backfire and bite all these anti-women’s-right buffoons where the sun doesn’t shine.
April 28th, 2012: National March Against the War on Women. Every state capital. Santa Fe, New Mexico…. watch out because here I come! I am woman, hear me roar!
Now I remember – it’s politicians in Texas who prefer sheep.
LOL… Yeah, Georgia has dibs on cows and pigs.
Michelle, is there no end to the rampant schmuckery abroad in the land? lock up your sheep! continue…
It’s getting baaaaad for sure. 😉
I can’t believe that the Georgia House passed this bill. It’s just so heartless and cruel to force a woman to continue to carry a fetus for over 4-1/2 months while knowing that the baby she will give birth to, isn’t expected to live. This is just all about the religious fanatics and their zeal to force the rest of us to live according to their twisted religious interpretation of their distorted version of morality. It makes me sick and it makes me furious!
Yup. And he ended his little speech with a quote from the bible. I about threw up. Whatever happened to separation of church and state? Please, feel free to be as religious as you want… but keep it out of the government, my home, and keep it in your home and church.
They refuse to accept separation of church and state, even though it’s one of the cornerstone principles that this nation was founded on, and the law of the land as written in the US Constitution. They think that they have a monopoly on morality and that their opinions of right and wrong are superior to those of anyone else, and must be obeyed by all, because they think that God ordained it, and their exclusive belief in God should overrule what is written in the Constitution.
It’s making me so sick. So sick.
The only good thing is that the far right religious and social conservatives may be overplaying their hand, and most of all with their “war against women”.
There’s already a serious backlash building against them that could cause a majority of Americans to reject them on a large scale and drive them back to the fringe of society and with much less power and influence. Their fanaticism may cost the GOP the election in November as well.
I have two good posts scheduled to publish in the morning. Especially the first one. You, and I mean YOU, will really like it. 6 am mountain time.
I’ll be looking forward to that, Michelle. Thanks for all that you do here. I sincerely mean that.
You’re welcome, but not really doing anything other than posting what’s going on in the world – especially the idiotic b.s. with this damn war started on women.
Hate the waders. total chaffing…
Well, west of the Mississippi (including northern Michigan) the rubber pants with suspends are called waders. The folks you read about who are into the whole sheep thing (can’t help but thinking of the Gene Wilder scene in the Woody Allen film) wear them on farms. Wore them to go fishing myself.
Apparently keeps the cow/pig/sheep feces from getting on their fab Wranglers.
Also famous for their gear in bestiality.
Reminds me of my last ex-husband. ..
Oh, ouch. Scary ex. Yeah, I know what waders are, but my synapsis wasn’t making the connection to the post. I’m tired… brain dead. Abby-normal brain tonight.
I couldn’t finish watching that. I just couldn’t…
I had a hard time, for sure, making it through the entire video. I did quit a bit early when he was in the middle of his sermon. I just couldn’t take it. A government facility with governmental business being ran like a church. No. Just not right. They MUST be separate from one another.
