Abortion: full court press in MI Lege

And you can bet your bottom dollar it's not just MI!

Go to the bills page and search on abortion to find some prize specimens, several of them dupes.

The Coercive Abortion Prevention Act HB 5882, for instance, which imposes dire penalties on anyone harrassing a woman into having an abortion. (The bill is printed in bold uppercase - or screaming as it's known online. Very appropriate.)

Zogby Abortion Survey

Zogby Abortion Survey
by NCDem,

So... it looks like Zogby is going to have a poll out on abortion, 'cause I just got the questionnaire... I'm having trouble with the following 2 questions

---------------------------------------- -----------------------

Do you agree or disagree that abortion ends a human life?

Agree  
 Disagree  
 Not sure  
---------------------------------------- -

Which of the following best describes when you think life begins?

At conception  
 At 3 months  
 At 6 months  
 At birth  
 Not sure  
---------------------------------------- -
I ended up answering "Disagree" and "birth"... but only because it's the "correct" (politically correct, that is) answer, whereas if I was being honest, I would say, "yes", "at conception"...

But in reality... "sperm" are "alive" and "eggs" are "alive"... and so I don't think the question really gets at the heart of the matter... I think abortion ends a human life, but I give no value to human gametes "as evidenced by my protected sex with my wife"... little value to a human zygote, and give progressively more "value" as the thing gets older... to eventually become a "human human".  

This is not a black and white issue, and this questionairre is HARD.

Emanuel takes a pass on SD abortion bill

The gals at Firedoglake quite rightly go bananas at the latest betrayal from House honcho Rahm Emanuel.

Apparently taking time out from parachuting his trained seals into likely CDs, he's gone out of his way to give a pass to the noxious SD abortion bill that Gov Mike Rounds just signed.

And you have to love the anonymouse kicker:

He wouldn't spell out the reasons, but a top party staffer (who declined to be quoted out of deference to his bosses) told NEWSWEEK: "These guys are gun-shy because they're used to getting clobbered on the issue."

With this kind of service from the Dems, little wonder that NARAL goes off the rails and endorses Chafee, fails to support an Alito filibuster, etc, etc.

Any suggestions for the identity of the anonymouse? (Hint: I sense a recognizable idiolect.)

Anti-Abortion Legislative Felony

...Citizen rights and the law have gone dark. No lights. Almost nobody home. Almost nobody to say, wait just one damn minute -- this is not about overturning Roe v. Wade. This is about a governing elite putting themselves above the law and violating it. This is about a governing elite trying to hide behind the doctrine of legislative immunity when, in reality, they have committed legislative felony....
