I have always considered myself a feminist but now that I have a daughter I would like to consider myself a feminist who will get in your face if you try any stupid shit.
This Texas abortion thing is not even the reason. My outrage-o-meter buried the needle when Perry tried to push that cervical cancer vaccine on every girl in the state and when they asked him why he said because they paid him to. I just couldn’t be that upset about this issue ever again. Texas has a government that preys on women. Not news.
Speaking of not news, it turns out that Perry’s sister stands to make a lot of money off this new “ambulatory surgical center” thing they built into the law. Surprise.
Abortion is the perfect thing to regulate. The demand can’t shrink, no matter how illegal you make it, so all you can do is drive the price up. There ya go; buy an abortion clinic, and then change the law so that only your abortion clinic is legal. Bam, huge profits.
