Right? Just an automatic typing twitch. SHE's feeling revved and types #fetalrights because it feels gooooood.
Because M312 is NOT about abortion.
Let's look into fetal rights.
Much opposition to legal abortion in the West is based on a concern for fetal rights. Similarly many pro-choice groups oppose fetal rights, even when they do not impinge directly on the abortion issue, because they perceive this as a slippery slope strategy to restricting abortions.Oh dear. 'Fetal rights' and 'abortion' together right there. Also. 'Slippery slope'.
Last night, SHE tweeted:
SHE has me blocked like most of the gutless yobs who are whining for the Debate, but block anyone who comes back with facts or uncomfortable questions. Also, being blocked is a ginormous pain in the butt. I can't retweet, can't embed, can't expand the conversation, i.e. see the context...
I've repeated it at least three times since and it's been retweeted a few times too.
There's been no reply.
So, again I do the fetus fetishists' research for them. Back to wiki.
I found four countries that have enshrined fetal rights in law: some US states, Iran, Ireland, and Germany. The case in Germany is a bit twisty.
In 1993, the Federal Constitutional Court of Germany held that the constitution guaranteed a right to life from conception, but that it is within the discretion of parliament not to punish abortion in the first trimester, providing that women agreed to undergo special counselling designed to discourage termination and "protect unborn life". The intermediate decision was the result of an attempt to join East Germany's abortion law to that of West Germany after reunification in 1990.Ireland is no surprise. The case in Iran is also a bit twisty.
And we know how fetal rights play out in the US. In the ipso facto criminalization of pregnancy.
Under the heading 'Behavioral intervention', wiki says:
No U.S. state has enacted a law which criminalizes specific behavior during pregnancy, but, nonetheless, it has been estimated that at least 200 American women have been criminally prosecuted or arrested under existing child abuse statutes for allegedly bringing about harm in-utero through their conduct during pregnancy. Reasons for pressing charges included use of illicit drugs, consumption of alcohol, and failure to comply with a doctor's order of bedrest or caesarean section. Drug addicts have been accused of "supplying drugs to a minor" through unintentional chemical subjection via the umbilical cord. Others have been charged with assault with a deadly weapon with the "deadly weapon" in question being an illegal drug. Minnesota, Wisconsin and South Dakota allow women who continue to use substances while pregnant to be civilly committed. Some states require that medical providers report any infant who is born with a physical dependency, or who tests positive for residual traces of alcohol or drugs, to child welfare authorities.Giving fetuses rights takes rights away from women. Moreover, fetal rights creates a new class of people -- pregnant people.
Every pregnant person would be subject to an entirely different regime of law.
The fetus fetishists know this. Are okey-dokey with it.
But continue to lie that Woodworth's Wank is NOT about abortion and women's rights.
It bloody well is.
