Why make an exception for rape and incest?

I always look for­ward to Dr. Mar­ty Klein’s Sex­u­al Intel­li­gence newslet­ters, so I was tick­led to see one in my inbox today. But one of the head­lines took me by sur­prise: End Rape & Incest Excep­tions to Stu­pak Abor­tion Ban. Dr. Klein always has excel­lent analy­ses, and this one is no excep­tion.

If you’re against repro­duc­tive choice for so-called “moral rea­sons” (as if any­one get­ting an abor­tion or sup­port­ing its legal­i­ty isn’t “moral”), be con­sis­tent. If killing a fetus or even a fer­til­ized egg wan­der­ing around a wom­an’s body is the same as killing a per­son (the posi­tion of every anti-choice activist), why should it mat­ter how the fetus or fer­til­ized egg got there? Why is a fetus’ right to live dimin­ished because its father was a rapist or a sadist? After all, we don’t say the chil­dren of such men have few­er rights than oth­er chil­dren.

Abortion is NOT related to FMS!

I detest igno­rant big­ots. And I absolute­ly con­sid­er the fol­low­ing hate speech:

So like an HPV diag­no­sis in some­one would almost guar­an­tee that oth­ers would know the per­son­’s poten­tial morals or lack there of, and HIV almost always denotes a gay man, a diag­no­sis of fibromyal­gia could poten­tial­ly indi­cate a woman who has abort­ed a child. Just a thought.

Gosh — so all those males who have fibromyal­gia were actu­al­ly born as women, and had abor­tions before they had sex changes and devel­oped FMS? Every­body who is HIV+ because of blood trans­fu­sions or oth­er issues is a gay man?

I’ve nev­er even con­sid­ered hav­ing an abor­tion. My child cer­tain­ly has­n’t had one, and she devel­oped FMS when she was nine years old!

I did com­ment at the blog­ger’s site, giv­ing her infor­ma­tion on all the proof that FMS does exist and that our pain is real. I don’t believe she’ll ever approve the com­ment, because she does­n’t care about the truth–she just wants to spread her nasty pro­pa­gan­da.
