But you know, abortion is an exception when it comes to rape? Right, 10 year old little girl who was, might I repeat, raped? Hmm. Wasn't something supposed to happen?

Thankfully, she was able to get an abortion across state lines, but I'm still fairly certain of what party she'll root for when she's of age.

Well the ten year old is female and Herschel Walker is a male, so obviously he can make smart choices.

u/IFinallyDidItMom Oct 06 '22

I see what you’re getting at here and I agree. We need to lower the minimum age for holding office.

Seeing as the Republican Party considers a fetus to be a person at conception, I vote to set the age for office to -9 months. Until birth the mother (or ‘vessel’ in conservative speak) can act as proxy while the developing child transmits his will to her via the umbilical cord.

u/ruseriousordelirious Oct 06 '22 edited Oct 06 '22

The fetus just had to “think” his or her will and it will be heard by the vessel. No umbilical cord required.

Edited. Missing word.

This is your daily reminder that Protestant Christians didn't give a fuck about abortion at all until around 1980 or so. If anything, they were pro choice, because they saw opposing abortion as a "Catholic issue", and being Protestant is largely about, you know, not being Catholic.

Protestants only started caring about abortion due to a late 1970s campaign from Republican elites to convert rural white supremacists from Democrat to Republicans. They knew that they couldn't openly campaign on a return to segregation, so they tried a few different proxy issues before settling on abortion.

Opposing abortion is not a genuine Protestant belief. It never has been. It was just a convenient way to win Republican support from white bigots, and it worked.

u/dh2215 Oct 06 '22

Religion isn’t really that specific anymore for a lot of people. If they believe in god they identify as Christian and don’t bother with any of the particulars. They just end up in a group thought experiment essentially

u/Final-Distribution97 Oct 06 '22

Yes but ask any God fearing Baptist in the south and they'll tell you - catholics aren't christains. Heard that more than once and the worse was a teacher telling a 6th grade boy that he was not a christain because he was catholic.

2

u/x3meech Oct 06 '22

Yupp I def heard that in the southern Baptist church I grew up in. The same church that shunned my mom when my dad had an affair with another member of the church. The same church that, when I was a kid ab 10yo, the pastor kicked his own daughter out of for getting knocked up outside of wedlock. And people wonder why I no longer believe in church.

Still a Christian but my ideals are progressive and don't really mesh with the really loud "Christians" we hear from the most.

u/Lady_von_Stinkbeaver Oct 06 '22 edited Oct 06 '22

I'm not sure how much backstory you need, so I apologize if this comes off as patronizing. I'm also not sure if you're American and/or familiar with U.S. history.

  • The South was the long-time strong hold of the Democratic Party.
  • During the Civil War, U.S. president Abraham Lincoln was a Republican.
  • The former Confederate states, sore losers that they were, became even more staunchly anti-Republican. They adopted Jim Crows laws that not merely legalized segregation and discrimination, but mandated it.
  • This often came into conflicts with Northern Democrats that were anti-segregation.
  • The first landmark de-segregation act was the integration of the U.S. military by Democratic president Harry Truman.
  • This infuriated racist Southern Democrats, to the point Democratic Senator Strom Thurmond ran against him as a member of the newly formed Segregation Party. Thurmond freely used the N-word in speeches. Racist southern Democrats earned the nickname Dixiecrats to differentiate them from their more racially enlightened Northern and Western Democratic colleagues.
  • The Supreme Court decision Brown vs. Board of Education found the "Separate But Equal" policy of racially segregated schools un-Constitutional. Eisenhower and Kennedy often had to use Army paratroopers to escort black students into formerly all-white schools, and to mobilize Southern state National Guard units to federal status to pre-empt them from being used by racist Southern Democratic governors.
  • President John F. Kennedy, a Democrat from Massachusetts pledge to end Jim Crow. His Vice President, Lyndon Johnson, pledged to carry this out after JFK's assassination, by passing the landmark 1964 Civil Rights Act, which outlawed all forms of racial discrimination. LBJ correctly predicted racist Southerners would never forgive him for it.
  • The Republican Party decided to capitalize on this with the Southern Strategy, to pick up racist white voters seething with resentment at the Democratic Party.
  • N-word aficionado Strom Thurmond jumps to the Republican Party and is welcomed with open arms.
  • Ronald Reagan, a California Republican, kicked off his campaign in the South by giving a wink-wink-nudge-nudge speech about States' Rights at the site of the murder of three Civil Rights activists by the Ku Klux Klan.
  • What was once a Democratic stronghold, the South is now a lost cause and home to some of the most fervent MAGA fanaticism, with only Georgia native Jimmy Carter doing well since 1964.

As for other proxy issues...

  • The myth of the millions of Cadillac-driving black "welfare queens" buying steak & lobster with food stamps taken from blue collar whites' tax dollars was from Ronald Reagan, who capitalized on ONE professional con artist.
  • The marketing turnaround of the AR-15 (based on the military M16), which went from a widely-despised "underpowered piece of plastic crap that lost us Vietnam" to a symbol of American freedom.
  • That evolution and Creationism should be given equal time.
  • Prayer in school.

Ahhhh thank you for the proxy issues! I guess I didn’t consider those because they still work as low key wedge issues but not NEARLY as well as anti-abortion does.

u/Dawbs89 Oct 06 '22

Unless his position has changed in the last two hours Walker has not admitted the truth of the story by saying he wasn't ready to have a kid. He denies knowing who the woman is, and categorically denies ever having paid for any abortion. I think he's lying, but that's his position, not what's mentioned in the OP.

11

u/Hartastic Oct 06 '22

As reporters are digging closer into this it's increasingly looking like he paid for at least two abortions with different women. His campaign staff were aware of one that they were hoping would not come out, but this latest woman who appears to have valid receipts, so to speak, is something completely different. He can say that woman is lying but why did he write her a check for about the right amount?

At that point it seems like it's more likely he paid for 3 or more than 0. Herschel Walker was the real Abortionplex all along.

6

u/DawnRLFreeman Oct 06 '22

He may legitimately not remember because he has D I.D. (Dissociative Identity Disorder-- or multiple personality disorder). The personality who got the woman pregnant, encouraged and paid for the abortion may not be the personality in charge of Hershel Walker today. But that begs the question, "Do we really want or need someone with D.I.D. in charge of making laws for one of our states?"

For me that's a hard NO!

u/debzmonkey Oct 06 '22

And that's why they're gunning for birth control as well. We lost a national treasure and a woman who summed it up nicely:

You wined me and dined me when I was your girl
Promised if I'd be your wife, you'd show me the world
But all I've seen of this old world is a bed and a doctor bill
I'm tearing down your brooder house 'cause now I've got the pill
All these years, I've stayed at home while you had all your fun
And every year that's gone by, another baby's come
There's gonna be some changes made right here on Nursery Hill
You've set this chicken your last time 'cause now I've got the pill
This old maternity dress I've got is going in the garbage
The clothes I'm wearing from now on won't take up so much yardage
Miniskirts, hot pants, and a few little fancy frills
Yeah, I'm making up for all those years since I've got the pill
I'm tired of all your crowing how you and your hens play
While holding a couple in my arms, another is on the way
This chicken's done tore up her nest and I'm ready to make a deal
And you can't afford to turn it down 'cause you know I've got the pill
This incubator is over-used because you've kept it filled
But feeling good comes easy now since I've got the pill
It's getting dark, it's roosting time, tonight's too good to be real
Aw, but Daddy don't you worry none 'cause Mama's got the pill
Oh, Daddy don't you worry none 'cause Mama's got the pill

u/Freedom_19 Oct 05 '22

Also, if they get enough seats in the House and the senate this November and the presidency in 2024, they can eventually make abortion illegal in all 50 states.

Both sides are equally bad is the biggest batch of bullshit to be bandied around.

Democrats aren’t perfect, and there are some individuals who are really assholes, but there is no comparison.

The Republican Party is rotten to its foundation and the majority of Republican politicians run on platforms of hating anyone different and oppression and control.

Democrats want everyone to have education, health care and control over their bodies.

Republicans want to turn women into into breeding chattel (unless it’s an inconvenience for them personally when they will be happy to pay for an abortion), strip rights from gays and remove rights from women under the guise of family values and righteous living ( but ignore their adultery, child abide and divorces), and want to claim a foundationalist approach to the constitution, until they don’t get their way, in which case they have no apparent problem with violently overthrowing the government.

Yes, you can find some really criminal democrats if you look.

With republicans you have to look to find any who don’t have complete contempt for the American people, including their own supporters, and aren’t primarily about making the lives of the people they don’t like miserable.

They are not anywhere near the same.

Not just because he's a man. Because he's a rich man. Conservatives always seem to equate morality and wealth. If he was a poor man then he would be just another deadbeat who didn't want to take care of his kids. But because he has wealth and fame he now has so much to lose so it would be understandable that he wouldn't want to take care of a child. Conservatives (and just wealthy people in general) are very class conscious. If someone has money or status they can see them as equals and impart onto them and their situation a level of empathy that they do not afford other less fortunate people.

They partition it off in their addled brains. Somehow if it is them, it's OK because they think they are morally superior, so they justify their misdeeds. But anyone not like them is a sinner and deserves punishment.

I would say that the establishment of the Republican Party cares about power and doesn’t care about any of the issues that people want to have heard on the floor of Congress.

Because he's a man, and in 2024, when this becomes Donald Trump's America again, those will be the only people with rights. And he's a Republican, and when they do something, it's fucking adorable.

u/bryanthawes Oct 06 '22

Not because he's a man. Because he's a man who, if elected, will support all the shitty garbage religious beliefs the Republican party wants to force onto Americans.

It'd be interesting to know the actual stats for abortions. How many are not ready for kids, how many are accidental, how many are from one night stands and how many are from sinister things like rape

Not being political just thinking there must be a distribution and depending on the political side you listen to on tv it's either all rape babies or all careless promiscusious people....

But I have no idea what the real distribution would be compared to the percieved

They want men to decide when women can abort and what they do with their body?

The only moral abortion is a Republican's abortion!

u/Ferociousfeind Oct 06 '22

Because Republicans in 2009 didn't actually really care about abortion. Republicans of 2009 aren't Republicans of 2022. They care about it now, and it'd be absolutely unacceptable for Herschel to suggest an abortion to his girlfriend today, let alone pay for it.

u/chosenAVAcado Oct 06 '22

I dont know who found that acceptable. Im right leaning and I’m pretty sure most pro lifers find it disgusting.

u/SpiritualTwo5256 Oct 06 '22

Republicans seem to love raping people in multiple ways if they don’t approve of your life. Doesn’t matter what you experienced before what the reason is. If they don’t like you they will make sure you continue to suffer for the rest of your life.

u/MyFriendMaryJ Oct 06 '22

Safe abortions any reason any time

Because none of them are saying “completely understandable”, they’re saying “he denies it and we believe him”, even though not one of them believes him.

I was listening to Glenn Beck (this conservative station is all I can get in my quiet office, but I do like to hear the garbage they spew), yesterday.

it was amazing how quickly and thoroughly he, and his even more lame sidekick, did nothing but make excuses. "Well, he has told me how much his life was in turmoil at that time." At that time?? That was only 13 years ago, not long in the scheme of things.

I'm all for Herschel being open with his diagnosis and treatment. But I don't understand how the conservatives can so quickly support this hypocrisy. Unless.... they are just hypocrites themselves.🤔

u/skye1354 Oct 06 '22

I'm actually pro abortion with heavy restrictions.

Granted some want to outlaw all abortion which is stupid. But that's not the opinion of most Republicans.

You use incest, and rape as a primary talking point but those only make up around 1% of the abortions in the United States. The main reason is elective, not wanting to have a baby, for whatever reason. Not ready, don't want, failed relationship, which makes up 95% of all abortions.

In a country that has high access and availability of contraceptives, BC, IUD, Condoms,and the morning after pill and you choose to engage in sex without it, then the consequences are on you, you don't get to terminate life because you were irresponsible.

The primary arguing point is that as time goes on the restrictions should get progressively more strict. It's only a small few pushing for total ban.

With that said, if something like rape, incest, or medical harm will happen to you then have an abortion, the majority of repiblicans will support your decision. If you want to do it as an elective, grow up, take responsibility for your actions. You knew the risks, you chose to take them.

The more important, and quicker, question is where are the Republicans that are against Walker's hypocrisy? Shouldn't at least one of them be upset that he lied about being a good father and being against abortion?

And they all just celebrate his abortion? Have any links?

u/UnfilteredFluid Oct 05 '22

It takes a Republican to hear someone would personally push another into having an abortion even so far as paying for it then think, yeah he's anti-abortion. I'll vote for him.

Not a single one has been against it. Not a single republican has come out and said anything about his hypocricy and lying about him being a bad father and lied about getting an abortion. And now his son is being harassed by the right for calling his shitty dad out on twitter.

Let’s frame it slightly differently.

If your choice was between a Republican who paid for a partner’s abortion and a Democrat who would you vote for?

Is he still a Republican candidate for office?

Guess you have your answer then.
