Wrapped Up In Books


Congratulations, North Dakota, for reuniting church and state!

Two days ago, Governor John Hoeven et alii passed a law that gives a fucking fertilized egg the rights of any citizen within North Dakota. There are no exceptions: anyone who was raped (by a relative or otherwise) or is in a position where their own life is in danger due to being pregnant is truly up shit creek sans paddle.

I really hope that women residing in this state who require an abortion will go to Minnesota, or hell, even up to Manitoba to get the service they require rather than end up with a baby they don’t want or can’t care for. Patriarchal laws like these are heartbreaking.

Funny that they should treat the egg with more respect than the woman whose uterus carries it.

Funny, this doesn't look like a person to me. Can it vote, too?
