How Peachy Is Your Uterus?

Better make sure it's up to par, as male Fundy politicians could come knocking on your door to examine it personally if things keep up the way they are currently in the Georgia Legislature, in this mid-way point of this horrendous session we're all suffering through.

Things are at such absurd levels, given the height of male hysteria over women's health and reproductive issues under the Gold Dome, that even the AJC noticed! Says it, in a staff editorial today:

"This is not the year of the woman at the General Assembly; it's the year of the womb.

A batch of anti-abortion measures is racing through the General Assembly, all of which reduce a pregnant woman to a vessel. One bill accords an embryo the same legal standing as the pregnant woman herself. Another allows pharmacists to refuse to fill prescriptions for emergency contraceptives. Among the most intrusive is SB 429, which forces a pregnant woman to have a sonogram or ultrasound for no medical reason whatsoever."

Seems like a revival of some of that there good old-fashioned radical feminist strategy is gonna have to be hauled out of the closet and dusted-off before too much longer.

"Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi; you're my only hope."
"Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi; you're my only hope."
