Why Are 'Pro-Life' Republicans Pushing a Bill That Will Kill Tens of Thousands?

Why Are 'Pro-Life' Republicans Pushing a Bill That Will Kill Tens of Thousands?

Republicans are pro-birth. They don't give a shit about the babies after birth just like they don't give a shit about soldiers once they're home.

Republicans don't give a shit about other human beings.

Because pro-life is about punishing women for having sex. If they cared at all about reducing the number of abortions, they'd be handing out birth control like candy.

here is original stand up

Why, why, why, why is it that most of the people who are against abortion are people you wouldn't want to fuck in the first place, huh? Boy, these conservatives are really something, aren't they? They're all in favor of the unborn. They will do anything for the unborn. But once you're born, you're on your own. Pro-life conservatives are obsessed with the fetus from conception to nine months. After that, they don't want to know about you. They don't want to hear from you. No nothing. No neonatal care, no day care, no head start, no school lunch, no food stamps, no welfare, no nothing. If you're preborn, you're fine; if you're preschool, you're fucked.

Conservatives don't give a shit about you until you reach "military age". Then they think you are just fine. Just what they've been looking for. Conservatives want live babies so they can raise them to be dead soldiers. Pro-life... pro-life... These people aren't pro-life, they're killing doctors! What kind of pro-life is that? What, they'll do anything they can to save a fetus but if it grows up to be a doctor they just might have to kill it'They're not pro-life. You know what they are? They're anti-woman. Simple as it gets, anti-woman. They don't like them. They don't like women.They believe a woman's primary role is to function as a brood mare for the state.

Pro-life... You don't see many of these white anti-abortion women volunteering to have any black fetuses transplanted into their uteruses, do you? No, you don't see them adopting a whole lot of crack babies, do you? No, that might be something Christ would do. And, you won't see alot of these pro-life people dousing themselves in kerosene and lighting themselves on fire. You know, moraly committed religious people in South Vietnam knew how to stage a goddamn demonstration, didn't they?! They knew how to put on a fucking protest. Light yourself on FIRE!! C'mon, you moral crusaders, let's see a little smoke. To match that fire in your belly.

Here's another question I have: how come when it's us, it's an abortion, and when it's a chicken, it's an omelette? Are we so much better than chickens all of a sudden? When did this happen, that we passed chickens in goodness? Name six ways we're better than chickens... See, nobody can do it! You know why? 'Cuz chickens are decent people. You don't see chickens hanging around in drug gangs, do you? No, you don't see a chicken strapping some guy to a chair and hooking up his nuts to a car battery, do you? When's the last chicken you heard about came home from work and beat the shit out of his hen, huh? Doesn't happen. 'Cuz chickens are decent people.

But let's get back to this abortion shit. Now, is a fetus a human being? This seems to be the central question. Well, if a fetus is a human being, how come the census doesn't count them? If a fetus is a human being, how come when there's a miscarriage they don't have a funeral? If a fetus is a human being, how come people say "we have two children and one on the way" instead of saying "we have three children?" People say life begins at conception, I say life began about a billion years ago and it's a continuous process. Continuous, just keeps rolling along. Rolling, rolling, rolling along.

And say you know something? Listen, you can go back further than that. What about the carbon atoms? Hah? Human life could not exist without carbon. So is it just possible that maybe we shouldn't be burning all this coal? Just looking for a little consistency here in these anti-abortion arguments. See the really hardcore people will tell you life begins at fertilization. Fertilization, when the sperm fertilizes the egg. Which is usually a few moments after the man says "Gee, honey, I was going to pull out but the phone rang and it startled me." Fertilization.

But even after the egg is fertilized, it's still six or seven days before it reaches the uterus and pregnancy begins, and not every egg makes it that far. Eighty percent of a woman's fertilized eggs are rinsed and flushed out of her body once a month during those delightful few days she has. They wind up on sanitary napkins, and yet they are fertilized eggs. So basically what these anti-abortion people are telling us is that any woman who's had more than more than one period is a serial killer! Consistency. Consistency. Hey, hey, if they really want to get serious, what about all the sperm that are wasted when the state executes a condemned man, one of these pro-life guys who's watching cums in his pants, huh? Here's a guy standing over there with his jockey shorts full of little Vinnies and Debbies, and nobody's saying a word to the guy. Not every ejaculation deserves a name. Now, speaking of consistency, Catholics, which I was until I reached the age of reason, Catholics and other Christians are against abortions, and they're against homosexuals. Well who has less abortions than homosexuals?! Leave these fucking people alone, for Christ sakes! Here is an entire class of people guaranteed never to have an abortion! And the Catholics and Christians are just tossing them aside! You'd think they'd make natural allies. Go look for consistency in religion. And speaking of my friends the Catholics, when John Cardinal O'Connor of New York and some of these other Cardinals and Bishops have experienced their first pregnancies and their first labor pains and they've raised a couple of children on minimum wage, then I'll be glad to hear what they have to say about abortion. I'm sure it'll be interesting. Enlightening, too. But, in the meantime what they ought to be doing is telling these priests who took a vow of chastity to keep their hands off the altar boys! Keep your hands to yourself, Father! You know? When Jesus said "Suffer the little children come unto me", that's not what he was talking about!

So you know what I tell these anti-abortion people? I say "Hey. Hey. If you think a fetus is more important then a woman, try getting a fetus to wash the shit stains out of your underwear. For no pay and no pension." I tell them "Think of an abortion as term limits. That's all it is. Bioligical term limits.

Three-quarters of world has little or no confidence in Trump, Pew study finds

Three-quarters of world has little or no confidence in Trump, Pew study finds

Neither does the majority of this country.

Israel and Russia have faith in Trump

Shocking

Israel

They really want their settlements huh?

He has enough confidence in himself to make up for the world's lack of confidence in him. The craziest thing is watching him lie to himself about how he is awesome and always winning.

Poll shows U.S. tumbling in world’s regard under Trump

Poll shows U.S. tumbling in world’s regard under Trump

His base loves this. And damn, do I ever hate his base.

So ashamed right now of my country.

The international survey by the Pew Research Center found that favorable ratings of the United States have decreased from 64 percent of people across all countries surveyed at the end of Barack Obama’s presidency to 49 percent this spring. The new figures are similar to those toward the end of the George W. Bush administration.

The president himself has fared even worse: A median 22 percent are confident that Trump will do the right thing in global affairs, down from 64 percent who had confidence in Obama.

From Chile to Italy, from Sweden to Japan, majorities consider the president arrogant, intolerant, unqualified and dangerous. On the flip side, most view him as a strong leader. And many expect their country’s relationship with the United States to withstand his presidency.

have a look; the numbers are a clear embarrassment for donny.

On the flip side, most view him as a strong leader.

He literally has zero leadership qualities. He never accepts responsibility, he blames any and everyone else for his problems, he lies like it's an addiction, he has no discipline whatsoever... How can anyone attribute those qualities as strong leadership?

Not gonna lie, I'm worried about you guys. Ultimately optimistic, but still worried.

First on CNN - Devin Nunes: I can 'take the investigation over' after stepping aside

First on CNN - Devin Nunes: I can 'take the investigation over' after stepping aside
First on CNN - Devin Nunes: I can 'take the investigation over' after stepping aside

Nunes: "When I temporarily stepped aside from leading the investigation, that's exactly what it means: It doesn't mean I wasn't going to be involved, it doesn't mean I wasn't going to be fully read in.

I can do whatever I want, I'm the chairman of the committee. I voluntarily, temporarily stepped aside from leading the investigation."

Holy shit that bolded quote. They're just flaunting it now

I can go back right after this conversation and take the investigation over. Although I think everybody's learning there's not really much there because there's no collusion -- which is what I had said several months ago, I hadn't seen any evidence.

Can you be the head of a committee investigating something and go around like "there is absolutely no way we're going to find anything in this credible, ethical investigation because I happen to already know nothing happened and this whole thing is just a witch hunt" I mean can you do that?

Ethics committee? In a republican administration? Ha!

Susan Collins Confirms She Will Vote To Block GOP Health Care Bill

Susan Collins Confirms She Will Vote To Block GOP Health Care Bill

So I believe she is a for real no and that Heller is a for real no.

Hopefully these aren't the designated two

Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK), asked if the bill would too severely cut Medicaid, replied calmly: “I’m not sure what it does. I just know that it’s better than Obamacare. That’s the question we should really be talking about.” Asked why the bill is better than Obamacare, Inhofe appeared flustered as he made his way to an elevator in the Capitol’s basement. “Well, if you want to go back and discuss Obamacare, that would be another issue.”

lol these people

And that's your 3 (Collins, Paul, Heller.) It can't be that easy. I'm sure McTurtle still has something up his shell. He wouldn't put something up like this that he knew would fail. Don't celebrate just yet folks. More bullshit incoming.

And McCain will say this bill is concerning, furrow his brow, and vote for it anyway.

FBI has questioned Trump campaign adviser Carter Page at length in Russia probe

FBI has questioned Trump campaign adviser Carter Page at length in Russia probe

"Page said he spoke without a lawyer and wasn’t concerned about the risks because he told the truth."

We've all been wondering why his lawyer would ever let him do all those TV interviews... if he's speaking to the FBI without a lawyer, that means he does not have a lawyer.

Jesus fucking Christ. This man truly is an idiot.

Even if you're innocent, you get a lawyer when speaking to the fucking FBI!!!

If he's being questioned so extensively by the FBI, why the fuck does he continue going on TV for interviews?

Any normal person would want to STFU in that situation

So there's a theory I heard that everyone wants Paige to be the fall guy. Incompetent, constantly being lambasted in the press, clearly a "hate-able" person, speaking without a lawyer. He's likely just a complete idiot but it would be hilarious if the rest of team treason just threw him under the bus.

15 million more unemployed uninsured NEXT YEAR. Holy shit.

Edit: a word.

Yet 50 of these fuckers are going to vote for it. Don't believe the theatre! That "I'm not going to support it in its current form" was all a show. They do this shit every fucking time. McTurtle would not have put up a bill if he didn't know he had the votes. He has the votes.

@JoshuaHol Per CBO, 4 million people would lose employer-provided coverage next year under BCRA.

Lovely. So the whole 'just get a job and you'll have insurance thing' is also bullshit.

Can a Republican, any Republican, tell me how this fits in with being "pro-life"?

Nikki Haley, Who’s Against Gay Marriage, Says She Was Booed at New York’s Pride Parade for Some Reason

Nikki Haley, Who’s Against Gay Marriage, Says She Was Booed at New York’s Pride Parade for Some R...

We,incl my son, were booed by patrons saying hateful things as we left lunch @ Pride Parade.Our country is better than this. #HateNeverWins

Translation:

Can't you be civil while I'm trying to take away rights from depraved sinners who are going straight to hell? #HateNeverWins

It really is pathetic how these right-wingers whine and complain about "political correctness" but believe themselves to be entitled to respect from the very people they demonize and fight tooth and nail to curtail their rights. It's like some kind of mental disease.

So they have to tolerate your intolerance?

This is a common belief among fascists.

Hey, look! Another claim from that dossier Republicans keep trying to discredit has been verified!

No but no evidence! MAGA no evidence! Where is the evidence? Derrrr

And all anyone wants is the pee tape. The IC is edging us for it. My hope is we get it as a reward AFTER Trump is either charged or impeached just to further humiliate the man.

Uh, when did Obama have them run disinfo campaigns?

So now 17 intelligence agencies are all corrupt, not to be trusted...because...why?

Spicer: Trump ‘Was Joking’ When He Asked Russia To Find Clinton Emails

Spicer: Trump ‘Was Joking’ When He Asked Russia To Find Clinton Emails

People were joking when they said Trump should run for President. We all need to learn that jokes can have consequences.

1) "You honor, I was only joking when I screamed fire in a movie theater."

2) "Your honor, I was only joking when I said I had a bomb on the plane"

3) "Your honor, I was only joking when I asked a foreign nation to interfere in our presidential election."

4) "Your honor, I was only joking when hanging a noose from a tree."

Also, no one else is allowed to make jokes or factually correct statements.

“Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you can find the 33,000 emails that are missing,” Trump said during a press conference in July 2016. “I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press.”

Yeah, definitely a great joke there Spicer. Asking a foreign country on national television to interfere with our democracy is a GREAT joke.

If you continually say something shitty and continually say "I was just joking, can't you take a joke?", then you're a mental abuser.
