Phil Bryant is a governor in a hateful state. Mississippi, the state that sees women as vessels for having babies, not as human beings with rights and wills of their own. Mississippi, a state that would force women to endure pregnancies that they can't carry or can't care for.
And if that's not discrimination I don't know what is.
JACKSON, Miss. (AP) -- Mississippi could soon become the only state without an abortion clinic because of a new law taking effect this weekend. Critics say the law would force women to drive hours across the state line to obtain a constitutionally protected procedure, or could even force some to carry unwanted pregnancies to term.
Top officials, including the governor, say limiting the number of abortions is exactly what they have in mind.
Republican Gov. Phil Bryant frequently says he wants Mississippi to be "abortion-free."
Mississippi will be freedom-less state for women, a virtual penitentiary where men are are allowed to fuck and flee, leaving the women to carry an unwanted (or worse) pregnancy.
Women should not have their bodies subject to laws. Just because they're able to be pregnant does not mean they should be forced to bear the results. As for all the religious "help" that is offered, none of it lasts longer than it takes to bring junior into the world. After that the help dries up. Read the statistics:
3,269 children in foster care
35.2% of foster children are between ages of 0 and 5
31.5% of foster children are between ages of 6 and 12
33.3% of foster children are between ages of 13 and 21
Average number of birthdays a child spends in foster care: 2 birthdays (22.5 months)
Nationally: 2 birthdays (28.8 months)
42% of children experience three or more foster care placements
25.2% (823) of children live in group care or institutional settings
Nationally: 18.2% (93,521)
Over 35% of children between 0 and 5 are abandoned. So where are the "good loving Christians" then? Didn't they promise to help? Aren't there at least 3000 anti-abortion voters in the state that are willing to step up and foster these children they demanded be born?
Bullshit. Phil Bryant and his misogynistic state of woman-haters couldn't give a rats ass about the baby once it's born, because the *real* goal is keeping women in their place. Barefoot and pregnant. With no place to turn.
Fuck you Phil. Fuck you and your bullshit. Why don't you actually help the children that *are* alive and *need* that help right now today? Or would that cost too much money?
A child is born into poverty every 37 minutes.
A child is abused or neglected every 1 hour.
A child dies before his or her first birthday every 18 hours.
A child or teen is killed by gunfire every 9 days. (children's defense)
