Ato outlaw abortion after a fetus’ heartbeat can be detected. Yes, it’s a bad bill and almost certainly an un-Constitutional one. My guess is that this law and a similar one in Tennessee are designed to give the Supreme Court yet another shot at over-turning Roe v. Wade.
In response, Democratic state Rep. Dar’shun Kendrick sent out this proposal on Twitter:
Is this woman as brick-stupid as this would suggest, or is she making some subtle point that her intellectual inferiors are too limited to grasp? It appears that she really thinks that this is a valid, even clever, analogy. Do abortion fanatics really think this way? Do they really not even perceive that sexual autonomy is just one half of the issue, and that without the half that they are ignoring, there would be no issue?
I nearly titled this, “Signature Significance, But Of What?” I don’t think anyone of even average intelligence could tweet this seriously, but then, nobody who could think like this is remotely qualified to serve in a state legislature. Incredibly, she has an MBA and a law degree—being able to formulate competent analogies is essential to the study of law. She graduated cum laude from Oglethorpe University in 2004, in 2007 graduated from the University of Georgia School of Law, and Kendrick received an MBA from Kennesaw State University in 2011. Is this signature significance for the these schools, since if someone can graduate with her critical thinking skills this pathetic, they should all be reduced to landfill. Kendrick doesn’t appear to be making a joke; she stated that she introduced her bill to “…bring awareness to the fact that if you’re going to legislate our bodies, then we have every right to propose legislation to regulate yours.” Does she know that the issue is legal protections (or not) for the lived of the unborn, not “legislating bodies”? How do you have an intelligent discussion, much less a policy debate, with someone who isn’t mortified to tweet something like this?
What does it say about journalists who write something like this, from a CBS affiliate?
“State Rep. Dar’shun Kendrick is taking the stance of -one bad bill deserves another. In a very tongue-in-cheek way, she’s showing how men and women are treated differently when it comes to reproductive rights.”
No, in a very idiotic way, she’s showing that t some activists can only debate abortion by refusing to address it. I know reality routinely offends the left, but the laws affecting men and women often have to be different because there a some material differences between them. Men don’t give birth. An equivalent “tongue-in-cheek” bill would require men to have the “right to choose” whether their offspring lives or dies….equivalently obtuse.
And how many feminists think like her…and what does that tell us?
