misogyny 101

2005-01-07 - 9:47 a.m.

Do something about this shit: If a Virginia woman has a miscarriage anywhere other than a doctor's office and does not notify the cops, she will face criminal charges if Virginia house bill 1677 is passed. Men, women, Republican, Democrat, pro-life, pro-choice, I don't care. This is the most offensive piece of legislation I have ever seen, and it needs to be exposed for the flagrantly misogynistic bullshit it is. I don't know what John Cosgrove's issue is, but violating a woman's privacy in what may be her most vulnerable and nightmarish moments can't possibly help him resolve it. If you live in VA, fight this shit. If you live anywhere else, spread the word about this fuckmook and his fuckmookish bill. A woman is not to blame for miscarrying her child. Hat tip to getupgrrl.

Added later:

God bless America, land that I love! Stand beside her, and guide her through the night with the light from above. The light is dimming, and we are headed into the long dark night. Now is the time to pick up our arms and fight. We must keep up the struggle, and guide this country, keeping to the true path. If America is now Dante, then we must be Virgil, and we must be willing to descend with her these next four years in order to bring her back. We must have the fortitude to see the stars in this dark, dark night. Please, spread the word of this bill around. Talk to everyone you know. Forward this information to your local newspaper, even if you're not in Virginia. Please.

Edited again (1/12/05) Cosgrove has withdrawn the bill! Thanks to everyone who wrote in or posted this on their blog.
