    There’s a murder in the obstetrics wing of Central City hospital, and a fetus is the only witness… but the mother’s the suspect, and under the rules of the state she could abort it at any time! Fearing for the fetus’s survival, it is entered into the witness protection program and must be escorted to a safehouse (a block of cement with an indentation in it for the mother’s belly). But on the way there, the convoy is attacked and destroyed, leaving only a lone-wolf cop who refuses to play by the rules. Now he, the fetus, and the woman desperate to kill it are all bound together by the twine of fate in a race against the clock (literal car race) to make sure justice is served.

    House considers bill that would outlaw abortions after just six or seven weeks
    Thursday, March 3, 2011
    BY CATHERINE CANDISKY
    THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH

    Ohio would have the most-restrictive abortion limits in the country if a bill before state legislators becomes law.

    Members of the House Health Committee watched silently in a packed hearing room yesterday as ultrasounds were given to two pregnant women. The fetal heartbeats were played through speakers while any movement was shown on a large projector screen.

    I don’t understand what this has to do with jobs or the economy.

    About as much as the other bill getting the headlines does.

    What the holy fuck is happening to this state?

    I was joking when I said that Kasich, et al wanted to send the state back into the 1950’s. Turns out, joke’s on me.

    You were only off by a century. 1850s is more like it. Still waiting for the bill to repeal child labor laws so we can be more competitive.

    You think they would be embracing the train in that case…

    I am never gonna get enough matching feed sacks to make a skirt big enough to cover this ass.

    Unless I can be a kept woman. I think I’d make an *awesome* kept woman. They were bitches, right?

    Eventually they’ll turn their attention to the sodomy laws. That testimony will be packed, so to speak.

    Yes, I too knew it was going to suck a lot when Kasich became governor. But now that all the horribleness has started piling up, and ridiculocity such as this just blow my mind.

    I’m not going to weigh in on the appropriateness of the actions taken at the hearing, but I do have an opinion when it comes to abortion. Abortion is murder, plain and simple. If a fetus was cute like a puppy, everybody would care a whole hell of a lot more about it, and that is sad. Do I think there are instances when abortion should be an option, yes, but an inconvenient pregnancy isn’t one of them. Everybody that has posted thus far has basically made a joke out of this. Maybe the joke is that you were all potential abortions. I’m glad for your sakes that you mom felt otherwise.

    Uh, I’m a little closer than that. They actually tried to terminate my gestation, but I still survived. They had to write on my birth certificate: “TOO TOUGH TO DIE.”

    You still sure you wanna pick a fight with me?

    Someone on here recently asked for my opinion on abortion, this seems like the better place to discuss it and I actually have a few minutes to talk about it. I certainly have an opinion and the pro-lifers can call me “inconsistent” on this matter if so inclined. Pro-life doesn’t begin and end with abortion in my opinion. I find the thought of abortion revolting on many levels and every precaution ought to taken to avoid them. Fortunately I’ve never had to face that prospect myself. That said, my mom wishes her mother’s abortion attempt was successful, but it wasn’t, and subsequently a “shot gun” wedding and birth occurred. Had her mother been successful I may not have been here (and I’m sure that would make a lot of people here happy) but her life wouldn’t have sucked and I wouldn’t have ever known the difference. The physical, emotional and other abuse she suffered was severe and she has attempted suicide many times in her life, and as early as 6 (back when refrigerators couldn’t be opened from the inside). She suffers major depression to this day, has a lived a wasted life and still wonders why she is alive, she is reliant on “the system” for her existence that the “conservatives” who demanded she be born would demolish because of the tax burden. I say if a mother/father or parent doesn’t want the child, they have no business forcing anyone else to raise them, or being forced to raise them. That isn’t just a fucking “inconvenience” to the “fucking” parents, it is often a fucking torture or neglect sentence for the unwanted child. There are more unwanted children born literally rotting in orphanages than any system can adequately handle as it is, let alone what would possibly flood the system if abortions were not performed. Fuck that. No-one wants to be that child. The short sightedness of those who would call abortion “murder” suggests how privileged their life has been and how clueless their understanding of the situation is. Life is hard even when you are wanted, it fucking sucks ass if you are unwanted. All males should be “snipped” at age 12 and pass a battery of tests to qualify for snip procedure reversal in my humble opinion. Just because people can fuck doesn’t qualify them to be parents and they shouldn’t be if they don’t want to be. Ask these kids (oh, that’s right, you can’t they were murdered by their abusive parents, after they were born when they were good and fully conscious of exactly what was happening to them):

    and the insanity ante is upped again (evidently in GA, some legislator thinks mothers who miscarry should also be prosecuted for murder):
