palin's choice and, wait am i really just an incubator

So, little Bristol Palin had a baby. And, like any daughter of a failed GOP VP (Sarah has recently been described as Dan Quayle with a pony-tail) should do — she's talking about it on Fox.

Salon: "Bristol Palin Stammers the Truth About Choice"
Has some choice clips:
"Bristol also bristled obediently when asked by Van Susteren about how the media "dogged" her a bit. "They thought that my mom was going to make me have the baby, and it was my choice to have the baby, and that kind of stuff just bothered me."

"Yes, Bristol insisted, it was her choice to have Tripp. "In terms of the ... whole issue of the right to life and choice and things like that ... this is your decision?" Van Susteren asked. "Yeah," repeated Bristol. "It doesn't matter what my mom's views are on it. It was my decision. And I wish people would realize that, too."'

Go Bristol with your forming feminism!

Posts on Slate's XX Factor quote Bristol as claiming she want's to become "an advocate against teen pregnancy" — again, you keep on going, young mom! But, yeah, good luck with your mom.

I hope she does get into advocating for safer sex education, because as she points out "Everyone should be abstinent or whatever, but it's not realistic at all."

And here's a reason to move all that icky waste they want to truck into a Nevada mountain to North Dakota:

"North Dakota anti-abortion measure approved by state House says fertilized egg is human"

Are you old white assholes fucking kidding me? OK, no, you're not. I saw a picture of you, and I know you are all old, fat, white men. Or at least mostly (maybe they're just jowly?). And ignorant, mean, women-hating women, perhaps? Goooo Christians! Treating the ladies like the incubators we were meant to be.

Ross's response: "Where is this? ... Are there women there?"

From the article:

"This is very simply defining when life begins, and giving that life some protections under our Constitution — the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

So, would I be jailed for having my occasional beer? Would my bikram yoga teachers be robbed of their business licenses for willfully endangering a "baby" when I told them that I had peed on a stick 3 days BEFORE I would have missed a period? Cause with ignorance like this, well, more is bound to follow.

I doubt this will get very far, but WOMEN, this shit has to stop. Maybe when that generation of men die out? Nah, we've got Palin Sr.s out there too.

Time to donate to Planned Parenthood!
