As if ignorant of the fundamentals of human reproduction, a Georgia House Rep is responding to limitations on late-term abortions with the proposed criminalization of vasectomies:
Rep. Yasmin Neal, a Democrat from the Atlanta suburb of Jonesboro, planned on Wednesday to introduce HB 1116, which would prevent men from vasectomies unless needed to avert serious injury or death. …
“If we legislate women’s bodies, it’s only fair that we legislate men’s,” said Neal, who said she wanted to write bill that would generate emotion and conversation the way anti-abortion bills do.
In other words, the bill is a cross between a bad joke and a publicity stunt promoting abortion, put forward as political theater of the absurd.
The anti-vasectomy bill was a response to a bill that would punish abortions performed after the 20th week of pregnancy with prison sentences between one and 10 years.
Even Ms. Neal is bright enough to grasp the difference between contraceptive measures and killing a child 20 weeks after conception. Her tasteless ploy sheds light on a key Democrat strategy: obscure this difference in the minds of voters. This allows them both to paint Republicans as lifestyle-cramping extremists, and to further normalize the practice of killing inconvenient children.
