FAIR WARNING: This is a rant. With swear words and everything. Caution, earmuffs and burn cream are recommended before proceeding.
Oh my Goddess, did you read what our Dear Leader said last night? (I’m assuming that most of you didn’t watch, lest you die from Obama Narcissism Overload, or at the very least, overdose on the saccharine ejaculations of the chattering classes over the Bestest, Most Melanin-Enhanced Preznit Evah.) Did you fucking read what this condescending, preening creep said about being pro-choice in America?
First of all, he said that the issue of abortion is not just about women’s freedom. Yes, you heard that right, sweeties. It’s NOT about being free to control your own body. (I have to admit, a small part of me wonders if he read my post yesterday; the coincidence is just bizarre!)
THE PRESIDENT: You know, my view on abortion I think has been very consistent. I think abortion is a moral issue and an ethical issue. I think that those who are pro-choice make a mistake when they — if they suggest — and I don’t want to create straw men here, but I think there are some who suggest that this is simply an issue about women’s freedom and that there’s no other considerations. I think, look, this is an issue that people have to wrestle with, and families and individual women have to wrestle with.
The reason I’m pro-choice is because I don’t think women take that position casually. I think that they struggle with these decisions each and every day, and I think they are in a better position to make these decision ultimately than members of Congress or a President of the United States — in consultation with their families, with their doctors, with their clergy. So that’s been my consistent position.
All right, stay with me here, I know your heads are rotating 360 degrees and you’re wanting to projectile-vomit. I feel ya, sisters and brothers!
So on the one hand, he says that pro-choice Americans are wrong to make access to abortion about women’s freedom. Then, Both Ways Barack says that no one in the government should make those decisions for women because they’re the best ones to make that decision. So if no one in the government should make those decisions for women, then it’s a private matter, right? Then it IS about women’s freedom to control their own bodies without the government interfering, you fucking asshole!
