Tennessee Taliban works to ban abortion

Republican theocrats in Tennessee are working successfully to change the state constitution to make sure that they later have the right to ban all abortions. Such a law just passed in South Dakota was pushed through by Republican theocrats there.

The Tennessee amendment says that nothing in the Constitution says that abortion is a right. A clause that made exceptions for rape or incest was voted down. The theocrats feel that if a woman is raped and becomes pregnant she has the responisibilty to carry the pregnancy to term. Rape exceptions were voted down in South Dakota as well.

The purpose for the amendment is obvious. The hope is that with Republican theocrats on the US Supreme Court that a challenge to legal abortions can now be made and might win. South Dakota intends their law to do just that. They now feel that Bush has appointed enough justices to the court to push the court in their direction. They want men who vote their religion. Already with robes similar to the mullahs maybe all the justices need are turbans?

Once the Supreme Court reverses itself on abortion then the US Taliban takes the fight to the states where all the Bush states are likely to line up to ban abortion immediately. But they need to make sure that there is nothing in the state constitution which limits governmental power to do that. So much for small government. Please note the theocrats are not traditional Republicans at all. They are advocates of big government. So far all their attempts to change constitutions, either at the state or the federal level, has been expand the power of government over the individual.

The illustration comes from a anti-abortion group. Please note it has the "Uncle Sam" figure holding a rosary. Uncle Sam represents the US government. They don't hide their desire to make the US government an instrument of church policy.

Since you are in favor of killing children for their father's crimes, I'm for post abortion of those who refuse to arm themselves with intelligence prior to engaging in a public debate.

There is nothing in the commentary about killing children or crimes of fathers, although I suppose a man who impregnates a woman by force (rape) who in turn carries the pregnancy to full term could be considered a "criminal father."

Those who argue that an embryo or non-late term fetus is a "child" should be armed with intelligent scientific evidence to support that position as opposed to defending it with theological arguments.

Well, it seems the "Taliban" is reaching deep into the life of many people, tearing out the soul, brain and freedom of each individual. I think people should decide for themselves what to do with their child. Of course, there are people (Taliban?) who actually "torcher" their child(ren), which is, and should be a crime. Now, deciding to have your child killed, by reasonable judgement, because of chronic sickness or unwanted pergnancy, is not part of this.

America is a free nation, right? (Well, that's retorical people, don't answer it, I know you ain't that free) So why should this freedom not be part of it? Because this "Taliban" of yours, is poisoning your minds, and infiltrating the freedom, through politics and whatever they can think of. Free your mind, and free yourself of these fools.
