Quote of the Day

[Content Note: Dehumanization; war on agency. NB: Not only woman can be pregnant.]

"This is not about a woman's body. This is about the life of an unborn 20-week-old baby."—Republican Mississippi State Senator Angela Burks Hill, on the Mississippi State Legislature's passage of a 20-week abortion ban with no exceptions for rape or incest, about which Republican Governor Phil Bryant says he looks forward to "receiving it and quickly signing it into law."

This is not about a woman's body. Welp.

They're not even trying to be circumspect about it anymore. Shades of Republican Virginia State Senator Steve Martin's cool Facebook post about "the child's host (some refer to them as mothers)."

We are to be nothing but incubators. Property of the state.
