The State of Alabama has passed the controversial HB314, making committing abortion a felony, except under extreme circumstances limited to saving the life of the mother and/or a stillborn child. Anti-life groups were quick to blast the decision as an infringement on women’s rights. Lemme see if I have this right: gun rights must be curtailed to protect children’s lives, but children’s lives must be curtailed to protect “women’s” rights?
Much as they did in response to moves like Georgia’s “heartbeat bill,” anti-lifers portrayed the Alabama law as being pushed, and voted for, by men. And much like their response to the aforementioned laws, they ignored the fact that co-authors of the bill were women; in Alabama’s case, the woman Governor of Alabama, Kay Ivey, signed the bill into law. Is there such a thing as a “woman card?” Do the millions of pro-life women now have to turn in theirs?
Democrats are very nervous about the progress of US Attorney John Durham’s probe into the murky origins of the Mueller Investigation. They claim Attorney General Barr is “weaponizing” federal resources to conduct a partisan witch hunt. I’d say turnabout is fair play, but the Democrats might have a real reason to worry. I’m talking “prison time” worry.
Speaking of Democrats in the big house, disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner has been released from a New York halfway house, after serving 18 months for sending lewd text messages to an underage girl. Although Weiner will have to register as a sex offender, and report to a parole officer, authorities are required to publicize his release, for obvious reasons. Hide yo’ kids, hide yo’ wife! Well, just yo’ kids.
New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio will reportedly announce Thursday that he is seeking the Democratic nomination for President of the United States, meaning the Democrats’ 2020 campaign mobile is about to get a lot more crowded. Hope that thing has a sunroof. And someone should probably warn the groundhogs.
