Homicide always requires a certain hubris: a pride that vaunts the "wants" or "needs" of the killer over the life of the killed.

That hubris is now on display with a posting from "Auntie Lynn."
That posting directs itself to the women of Georgia (and other States adopting "#heartbeat" #abortion restrictions).

The posting pretends to be an invitational note from an old Auntie who lives in New York. Well, no, it is an invitation so it isn't a pretense in that respect.
The pretense is that it comes from one's Aunt rather than from folks involved in #murdering #uterine #children for hire. Auntie Lynn wants poor repressed mothers in #Georgia and elsewhere to know that #abortions will still be available to them in #NewYork.

#Alabama #Abortion -

What have you done Alabama?

You've made it that "irresponsible" sex that leads to the creation of new life forces women to carry to term. OK. What is your justification?

Lets extrapolate.
Clearly the value placed on human life is high enough that you are seeking to protect the unborn.

Prioritising their well being over the pregnant woman. Even if you feel the woman has rights, you place the rights of the unborn first.
I don't feel this is an unfair appraisal of the situation...

Criminalising the act of abortion, as a deterrent. But what is it intended to deter?

Abortion - clearly. But is that the intention here? Isn't it "Promiscuous" sex that is the "sin" you are looking to combat?

Who's fooling whom?

If you are sitting inside a car, are you now the car?

If you are sitting inside a house, are you now the house?


A wiser man than me once put it this way: Just because a mouse lives in a cookie jar doesn't make him a cookie.

And so, just as surely as you are not a car or a house, a child in the uterus is not her mother, but her own, separate, unique biological entity, a life.
The "heartbeat" bills enacted, or being considered for enactment, in several States are part of a larger program of education. You see, for five decades, the abortion business trade groups and businesses have depended on a comfortable ignorance taking hold of the American mind.
