At least we've now pulled the curtain aside from what right-wing men really think about women
Posted by Jill | 5:52 AM
We're just breeders to them -- no different from barnyard animals:

In today’s news about more men who want to control women’s bodies, Georgia’s state representative, Terry England, wants to force us to carry stillborn fetuses to term–just like cows and pigs do, he says. Because, you know, women are just like barnyard animals.

England was speaking on the floor of the Georgia legislature in favor of HB 954, a bill which makes it illegal to obtain an abortion after 20 weeks, which is fine for him to take that stance and many people would even agree with that. However, he was pushing for that law to also apply to women who are carrying a stillborn fetus or one that is likely to die before it reaches term, making it illegal for women to have the dead fetus removed until their bodies do so naturally.

As if that insensitivity wasn’t enough, he then referenced the livestock on the farm where he once worked and how they had to sometimes deliver stillborn animals:

Life gives us many experiences…I’ve had the experience of delivering calves, dead and alive. Delivering pigs, dead or alive. It breaks our hearts to see those animals not make it.

In other words, if a cow or pig can give birth to a dead baby, then a woman should too. So what if it’s just plain cruel to force a woman to carry a stillborn fetus to term and then make her undergo labor. We are no different than cows or pigs, right? Yeah, that’s logic that just makes a lot of sense and is filled with so much compassion and understanding of women.

The one good thing about assholes like Terry England is that they're showing us exactly what the fetophile movement is about. It's not about human life, it's not about babies, and it sure as hell isn't about God or the Baby Jesus. It's about their own issues with women, and how they want to punish them in the most profound way possible.

It's not a newsflash. They're just being more open about it. What's so scary is the number of women who agree with these whackjobs.
