Hmmm. I've been thinking about nature long and hard and have decided that we might as well criminalize hurricanes, tornadoes, tsunamis, earthquakes, snow blizzards, and floods. While we're at it, we should sue rainy wedding days, as well as the flu on birthdays.
Sound inhumane, complicated, ignorant, misguided, misdirected, power-hungry, sociopathic, and egotistical?
I've also been thinking about alllll of this:
February 18, 2010: Measure on illegal abortions heads to governor from the Salt Lake Tribune
February 20, 2010: Utah Bill Criminalizes Miscarriage from RH Reality Check
February 24, 2010: In Utah, Miscarriage = Criminal Homicide from Amplify
February 26, 2010: Womb is Utah’s from Feminists for Choice
And, while we're dwelling in the bottom half of the glass:
February 25, 2010: Nebraska bill seeks to ban most late-term abortions based on argument that fetuses feel pain from the Los Angeles Times
February 23, 2010: Four anti-abortion measures receive Oklahoma House panel's approval from NewsOK
February 15, 2010: Legislation would create abortion waiting period in Missouri from the Kansas City Star
February 11, 2010: Kansas bill would bar insurance coverage of most elective abortions from the Kansas City Star
February 7, 2010: Susan Hill - Abortion-clinic owner, 61 from the Philadelphia Inquirer
February 2, 2010: Mississippi abortion initiative could end up in court from WDAM
(Similar efforts have been under way in several other states, including Colorado, Florida, Montana and Nevada.)
February 2, 2010: Anti-abortion group opposes facility's move to E. Knoxville from Knoxville News Sentinel
February 1, 2010: The Invisible Dead from Slate
In the words of a bright friend: GET OUTTA MY LIFE, FEBRUARY.
