Droned Fetus Sparks Republican Outrage

Republican leaders are expressing outrage at the news report of the recent drone strike in Pakistan that killed a pregnant woman.

"This is unacceptable," exclaimed Marco Rubio. "We must protect life. Killing that fetus is a clear case of murder. That's why I am introducing a bill that will make it illegal to drone a fetus that is older than 20 weeks. And for fetuses younger than 20 weeks, the drone operator is going to have to look at an ultrasound of the fetus before he sends the drone."

Democratic leaders are opposed to the bill. President Obama expressed his belief in a news conference today:
"I believe in a woman's right to choose. I believe that a Pakistani woman should be free to choose whether she wants to be blown up attending her sister's wedding while pregnant, or watching her child's elementary school leveled to the ground a few years down the line."

Even some Republicans weren't behind the proposed bill.
"What if that fetus turns out to be a terrorist?" asked Lindsay Graham. "We can't take that chance. You want an ultrasound? I say, shut up, fetus, you don't get an ultrasound! This is not the time to hesitate. We should not stop until all life on this planet is eliminated. Only then will we be safe from terrorism."

If you want a FREE-SOCIETY based on FREE-MARKETS

then you must "allow" for abortions -- Because in a free-society medical records-information-treatments are between doctor-and-patient -- without the right to "meddle" you'll never know what happens between doctors and patients; including abortion.

That being said -- without gov't incentivising or subsidizing abortion the numbers will eventually fall back down to the level they were in 1973 (adjusted for population increase).

In a free-society there is tremendous value in children and the elderly -- unlike a statist society.

Good job. You're eclipsing

I've run out of political jokes.

Politics has gone into the realm of self-parody, which is nearly impossible to make fun of. My favorite satire is the stuff that is just barely on the edge of possible, but with small clues that it couldn't possibly be true. 'Reality' no longer offers these clues so unfortunately political satire is now dead. Our only reprieve now is improvisational coffeehouse poetry beats.

So I'm turning to sports and entertainment now - still plenty of established rules and defined heirarchies there to make fun of: http://www.dailypaul.com/303493/academy-awards-acquires-stru...

I'm Quite Sure

...fetuses lose their protected status when they fall under the category of "associated forces".

Alot of people dont know about the contentious debate

In libertarian circles about abortion. In many cases it is what keeps them from looking more closely at the philosophy.

This is a really good example at the hypocrisy of that position. I personally beleave that abortion is the act of aggression against a human life. Even still if that matters to you and you are still a Republican then you are a fool.


Very funny, but too close to what passes for reality today.

Thanks for the morning giggle.

Fetuses in countries other

Fetuses in countries other than the US don't matter. Wait a minute...
