Yes, Those are His Real Numbers

Rock on Raskin, Rock On.

On Wednesday, March 1st, 2006, in Annapolis at a hearing on the proposed Constitutional Amendment to prohibit gay marriage, Jamie Raskin, professor of law at AU, was requested to testify.

At the end of his testimony, Republican Senator Nancy Jacobs said: "Mr. Raskin, my Bible says marriage is only between a man and a woman. What do you have to say about that?"

Raskin replied: "Senator, when you took your oath of office, you placed your hand on the Bible and swore to uphold the Constitution. You did not place your hand on the Constitution and swear to uphold the Bible."

The room erupted into applause.

In Case You're Wondering How I Feel About South Dakota These Days...

Written by Mike of The Infinite Cat Project:

If you believe in the 100% sanctity of life then I want to see your evangelical ass raising holy hell in front of the Children's Hospital the next time a pair of conjoined twins go under the knife...especially when one is doomed to die as a result of the operation.

Hard choice? You're damned right it is.

If you believe in God's perfect plan for all of us, as do the Jehovah's Witnesses, then protest maniacally the next time some poor bastard thinks the 30-pound cyst riding next to his liver ought to be excised surgically.

Can some of those of a religious nature be too blinded by their own imagined divinity to miss the forest for the trees? You're damned right they do.

If you really think that every person deserves the right to live a full meaningful existence then quit supporting wars fought for the benefit of weapons manufacturers and oil companies. Think of all the retroactive abortions you can prevent just by setting your thermostat to 60 degrees. It's a start.

An 8-week-old blastocyst isn't much different from that little white globby thing attached to an egg yolk, yet you'll happily gobble them Grade A suckers up by the dozen. The only difference is sometimes that little glob of goo grows up to be a South Dakotan senator who thinks he speaks for all eggs. Just not this one.

Bon appetit', America.

The Attack on Choice

For anyone living in South Dakota, Mississippi, Missouri, or any other backwater, bible-thumping, dark aged states, please pass this around to everyone you know:

Herbal Abortions - most of the herbs needed should be available at natural food stores.

How to use Regular Birth Control Pills as Emergency Contraception - including the amounts of hormones necessary.

Since certain states think that these women are nothing but breeding machines, let's try to educate them, and give them back the control that the government is trying to take away!
