On Marriage and Abortion…. nessa’s one and only political rant so far…

on February 24, 2012

Ouch this may stir stuff up but it’s MY blog and I’m going to say what I have to and want to.

NOT related to my weight or my health or my back… but stuff that’s going on in the lovely state of Maryland right now.

1. Maryland’s House and Senate have both voted to approve same sex marriage (this is a no brainer to me so I’m not sure why it’s taken so long.) In fact, I’m not sure why in the world the STATES have to deal with this… it should be a federal law that you can marry any PERSON you want.

I don’t want to marry my dog
I don’t want to marry my toaster… or my car…..

In fact, I personally don’t want to marry another woman. BUT I don’t think that anyone else should have the right to tell me who I can or cannot love and how I can or cannot express it.

The idiots who are against this are saying they will ask for a referendum and send it to the voters… that scares me enough to worry about it… so many NARROW minded people in this world… and lots of them in this state I fear.

I hear folks talk about this like gays are not human… the opponents of gay rights talk about gays just like those in the past talked about African-Americans not having rights, or the ability to make choices etc.

WHY in the world and HOW in the world can people think that they are better than others because of who they love, the color of their skin, or the religion they follow?

Arrrghh… I guess part of me wishes I could understand their feelings and yet a huge part of me is very very glad I can’t.

I’ve heard arguments that marriage is for procreation. I guess that means that infertile couples should not marry and couples that have no intention of having children should not marry.

Now, about this Abortion stuff… not going on here… but there is some place that is saying they want to have a law that says you can’t have an abortion without a transvaginal ultrasound. I’ve had those. It’s HORRIBLE. It’s invasive and it’s demeaning. Even when being done for a legitimate medical procedure.

I think they believe that if a woman sees this ultrasound they will change their minds. Like most women are so caviler about abortion? Maybe they think that some women will be so put off by the thought of what in my opinion is akin to a medically sanctioned rape, that they will just have the baby…

I guess again it’s folks that do not understand how adults think. More people that think they have the RIGHT to tell me what i can and cannot do with my own body… Now I have thankfully never had to make the decision to have an abortion since I was smart enough and wise enough to not have sex without protection unless I wanted to get pregnant…

Sadly there are women who don’t have that option… and again it’s the government sticking their nose in where they don’t belong… I’m not asking the state to pay for the abortion. Are they looking at what they would have to pay if they FORCE these women to have babies they don’t want? Welfare payments, medical payments. School costs… food stamps, medical costs… and yet if you ask them what to do with this baby and who will care for the baby and pay for the expenses of being pregnant and giving birth (even if the child was given up for adoption) they shrug… NOT MY PROBLEM… so tell me again why MY body is their concern???
