Hands Off New Mexico’s Abortion Rights Laws
The Albuquerque Journal ^ | Mon, Jan 28, 2013 | Joline Gutierrez Krueger

It’s curious how often the people who are against the government laying a hand on their guns are the same people who want the government to put its hands all over our lady parts.

New Mexico appears to have mostly bucked this odd incongruity, maintaining its wild West gun-loving ways while staying relatively relaxed on abortion and birth control issues. Recently, for instance, the national SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective rated New Mexico No. 1 in the nation for providing equal access to sexual and reproductive health services.

But as the Legislature rolls along, two female lawmakers are trying to topple New Mexico from that lofty perch.

TOPICS: Crime/Corruption; Culture/Society; US: New Mexico
KEYWORDS: abortion; now
No need to excerpt more - more dribble about how nasty Republicans are trying to obstruct the rights of women (and of course, nary a word about how many babies are killed while maintaining those "rights.")

But the reason for posting is the accompanying photograph of a patchwork quilt displayed over the railing at the state capital. One of the patches has the words:

I'm grateful my ABORTION was safe and legal

I'll leave to others to make comments; I'm speechless.

And the guns are specifically referenced in the Constitution!

“SisterSong Women of Color Reproductive Justice Collective”
Says it all!
Is it not interesting that a group dedicated to killing the unborn has as part of its title “reproduction”? This is truly Orwellian.

Judging by the looks of the protestors, none of them appear to be of an age where they are capable of becoming pregnant, or attracting fertile men to facilitate the process.

Joline must not be familiar with how her boy’s ObamaCare is going to work. Forget the cutesy “lady parts” thing. The government now owns, “the head, the tail, the whole damn thing”. (Sorry Captain Quint.)

I don’t want my hands on their lady parts.

I’d like to use my hands to protect their kids from their psychotic evil child abuse, though.

If a lady part gets in the way, sorry. I’m not the one trying to kill my kid.

It’s curious that those who want to take away the guns needed to protect the helpless and innocent are the same ones dismembering the helpless and innocent.

(Or maybe it’s not so curious after all.)

We don't give a rat's rear end about your 'lady parts' honey. We care deeply about the baby some women happen to have inside one of those parts, the DNA of whom is totally different from theirs, so it is a separate person entirely.
