The Annotated Ranter Strikes Again
2006.03.22 (Wed) 08:19

The Annotated Ranter is back, and this time the Ranter's sights are set on South Dakota and the anti-Choice crowd, including that Sexist Asshat of the Year, Bill Napoli. Here's a taste:

...what do you think the chances are that some perverted Senator from Rabid City is gonna bring this whole thing to a grinding halt?

It ain't gonna fucking happen. This is one of those places where the supply-siders actually know what they're talking about. Want to stop abortions? Get those kids an instruction manual before they start messing around with their fucking equipment. You're not going stop them from doing the purple piledriver, so get over yourselves and start handing out the hard hats before they show up at your door asking "Mommy, is my wonderwand supposed to ooze like this?"

See, nature's not on your side, you nattering nabobs of nativity. You can wax nostalgic about the good ol' days all you want, but you're in for a fucking surprise if we wind up winding back that clock. Check your history books, assholes: back when abortion was illegal and contraception was just a forbidden apple in some pharmacist's eye, American abortion rates were more than five fucking times higher than they are today.

Go read the whole thing, which also includes some great links (written by religiosos, even!) explaining how differing translations of the Bible can completely alter its authors' original intentions. Duh.

Kudos to the Annotated One, yet again.

Striking like the zephyr of the west...

Agreed; he ignores all the palaver and thrusts the bottom line right into the limelight (yes, double entendre intended!): outlawing abortion does *not* work for anything. It doesn't stop unwanted pregnancies, abortions, or related female deaths and yes, actually drives the number of abortions *up.*

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the number of abortions performed in the US had been in a steady *decline* since Roe v. Wade - until the Shrub was reelected. I remember reading an article by an anti-choicer, no less, who researched abortion numbers in preparation for a pro-Bush, anti-choice article - only to discover that since he has been in office, abortion has been on the *rise.* He ended up writing the article against Bush and in support of maintaining Roe v. Wade!

If only people bothered to do research for themselves with reputable sources, instead of simply accepting what those with a specific agenda feed them, we might see more changes in approach to the whole issue at the very least.

As long as I'm under 2% variance from the company line of the "in-the-ditch left"--right?

But then whatever would become of the right wing shills, like the ones working for Fox News? And the poor people at WorldNetDaily would have no audience at all! Honestly, it's sad that so many problems are a direct results of people being too lazy to do their own research. Too many people are content to be spoonfed their opinions.

Oh, and, davboz, if you have something to say, try constructing sentences that the rest of us can parse instead of mimicking bad Geico commercials.
