For the record, I do not support abortion. It’s not a religious thing. The idea of terminating life for the sake of convenience just gives me the creeps.
Wait, it gets worse. Seriously … no, wait. C’mon … HEY! Shut up and let me finish. Damn.
There’s also something else I’m not. I’m not a woman with a kid inside her wondering what I’m going to do about it. Abortion may creep me out for any number of reasons, but I’m a guy. For me, the issue of abortion exists largely in theory.
See, I’m not the person who has to wear that kid for nine months and then be personally responsible for it when the weasel half of the parenting equation disappears or won’t man up. So.
Know what else I don’t support? I don’t support government making any really personal decisions for me. I hate a government that promises to reduce its involvement in my personal life yet grows more meddlesome and domineering every year.
However, I do like mandatory 72-hour waiting periods. This is a religious position. I have an unshakable faith that people are morons — including you and me. But especially you.
This guy is for mandatory 72-hour waits for all major life decisions. Funny.
Does anyone find it ironic that the same people who support all of these restrictive laws affecting women’s reproductive choices also flip the hell out when someone brings up waiting periods to buy a gun? Sigh. I don’t get it.
