This’ll be a short post, because there really isn’t any way to expand on the moronic stupidity of Ohio’s Josh Mandel. You probably don’t know who he is, but he’s the Tea Party-backed candidate from Ohio, vying for a place in the US Senate.
Oh yes, and he’s the favourite to win.
He’s also pro-life.
In fact, this mindless motherfucker is so pro-life, that rather than see a bunch of cells, or an unborn fetus – which let’s face it, wouldn’t survive anyway – be aborted, he’d be quite happy for the mother to die. So much, in fact that he signed a pledge to the Cincinnati Right to Life group, wherein he agreed that abortion should not be allowed, even if it would save the mother’s life.
That’s right – screw the living, member of society, etc, etc woman. If she can’t even bring a new born baby in to the world safely, then fuck her! Let the bitch die!
It’s yet another old. conservative, white male using his fucked up ideas about a woman’s body, that he has no right to do. Amazingly, he’s managed to fall several rungs below the despicable pricks who think that a bunch of cells forming inside a woman after she was raped, is more important than her current mental state – not to mention the impact on her life, and that of her family, in the years to come.
However, in a debate with his Democrat opponent, he did back down and say he would support abortion to save the mother’s life. Maybe because somebody told him that otherwise he was coming across as an inhuman ghoul.
Something is seriously rotten in America and until the women of that country deliver a decisive “STFU!” it’ll continue.
