Fuck misogyny.

Does this qualify as misogyny?

The local probate judge created an estate for a fetus legally and medically aborted at 6 weeks. The request was filed by the man claiming to be the biological father, who was then named the personal representative of the fetus. He is now suing the abortion provider.

We’re mere steps away from “The Handmaid’s Tale”.

Yeah. It does.

Fuck that refusal to let women make their own choices.

And as Slacktivist pointed out in his most recent blog post, they really don’t believe that embryos and fetuses are living human beings:

If you google the date and the city, you won’t find anything. Why? Because the tragedy of epic proportions was when a clinic freezer malfunctioned and thus 4,000 fertilized embryos were destroyed. Those same embryos, at the same ‘age’, inside a woman’s body would be considered an egregious “murder” by the right wing.

And you don’t see any of those guys offering to save those lives by having embryos implanted in them.

It’s not technically impossible. The embryo develops its own placenta. Sure they might have to take estrogen during the pregnancy. And of course have a caesarean.

But isn’t that a small price and a small risk to save a life? They should be lining up to volunteer as “host bodies”.
