My Morning Wooten

Ugh
That act of child cruelty has drawn the attention of Georgia State Sen. Ralph Hudgins (R-Hull), who has introduced legislation to limit the number of embryos that fertility clinics can implant. The limit would be three for women over 40 and two for younger women. It should be passed into law.
Once again, a conservative who routinely calls for government restraint in our lives except if the lives happen to be a woman and her doctor. Then, it's katie-bar-the-door.

Much will be said about the practicalities of this nonsense - particularly the expense and danger of requiring multiple treatments - but I want to talk about the bigger picture.

I understand that my ability to buy beer on Sunday and a woman's health are on astronomically different levels, but given the "liquor on sunday bill" failed once again yesterday and is now followed up by this weird, mean piece of legislation, I want anyone who still thinks the Republicans in this state believe government should stay out of our lives to raise their hands.

What do you mean, "still thinks"?

Todays sermon was aimed at the other side of the aisle.

My wife went down to protest and said there were tons of people. Only a handful of supporters in favor.

Which one of my kids would he have wanted to never be born?

Not anyone said...

I don't think anyone has ever thought republicans would stay out of our lives.

Shit, when have Georgia's legislators *EVER* shown a propensity to stay out of constituents' lives?

Answer: never.

Nast - the girl. Remember which party we are talking about here.

Hmm, good point. Of course, they need girls around, too. It's no fun being the top dog if there's no one to push around.

They're bringing the bill back monday to push it through.


"They're up to their old tricks. 169 passed out of sub-committee yesterday afternoon, as suspected, and the committee will hear the new version of the bill on Monday and likely pass it out so they can have a vote on the floor as early as Tuesday. The bill has changed a little in its content such that it is now a personhood bill. I'll send out more details as they become available."
