Fallacy Files, "Life begins at conception"
The bread and butter tactic of right wing politicians when they are clearly loosing on economic and social issues is to scramble for the worst in their base to rally the troops. Often used when they don't want the rich taxed is "I want government out of my life".
WELL, yes, but selectively. They, especially those without vaginas of their ilk, have no problem intruding on the lives of others and playing doctor for others. Or denying the rights of gays and lesbians. Why? I think most of these politicians, if it were not for want of power, probably wouldn't give a shit what you do in the privacy of your own home. Unfortunately they do not have the intellectual bravery to tell the public the truth in that YOUR BODY is yours, not theirs. And how hypocritical of these fuckwads to claim to want limited government only to turn around and play morality police for the rest of us.
Scrotorum is now pandering to his base about, not even abortion, but contraception. A person who has no medical degree, no training in the psychology of teenagers, no study to prove that contraception causes more disease and more unwanted pregnancy. And he does NOT work for the CDC.
I hate to tell these theocratic nuts, that a sperm is ALIVE before it meets the egg. THE EGG is alive before it meets the sperm. A cluster of cells right at that point has as much feeling as a single blood cell that you might lose if you cut your finger and bleed.
Now, it is idiotic that because us lefty commie cooite spreading liberals value our privacy, to suggest that we want orgies in the street and tons of unwanted babies is absurd. It is also equally absurd that for somehow valuing the rights of an individual, that somehow we are advocating pregnancy simply so a woman can say "I fucked, made a baby just so I could kill it", is equally absurd.
I do not want to hear shit from the right about morality when they intrude more than any other party on the individual rights of all of us, with the most sectarian theocratic zealotry on par with theocracies. Now if there are, however few, on the right that are willing to stay the fuck out of my life and off my body, please, do us all a favor, and do the right thing and tell the idiots in your camp to back the fuck off on the issue of contraception and abortion.
IF we are individuals and free to choose then don't be a fucking hypocrite and choose for us. Politics in a secular pluralistic society should not be about playing morality police. It should be about our common law and our common economic direction.
