Texas pro-choicer rallies protesters with poem: “If My Vagina Was a Gun”

posted at 4:01 pm on July 9, 2013 by Allahpundit

Via Twitchy, something to cleanse the palate on a slow post-holiday news day. I can only assume that this will inspire a round of response and counter-response between pro-lifers and pro-choicers. Next comes “If My Fetus Was a Vagina,” then “If My Uterus Was a Fetus,” and then full circle with “If My Gun Was a Uterus.” Abortion politics is complicated, my friends.

Anyway, this is predictable insofar as most pro-choice rhetoric is crafted to skirt the heart of the matter. In polite company, like on the floor of Congress, “women’s health” is the euphemism of choice. For the grassroots abortion warrior who’s aiming to light up fellow adherents, framing abortion regs as regulating “vaginas” rather than killing babies in the womb is crude but effective. The punchline is that the gun analogy works both ways: It was gun control, in fact, that John McCormack of the Weekly Standard cited to Democrat Diana DeGette in asking why she supported “reasonable restrictions” for one in the name of saving lives but not in the other. Her answer? Next question. There’s no Republican of real national significance who believes in Second Amendment absolutism the way prominent Democrats, starting with the abortion-warrior-in-chief, appear to believe in abortion-rights absolutism up to (and sometimes beyond) the moment of birth. If your right to kill your child was a gun, Obama, Pelosi, and DeGette would be the radical equivalent of militiamen living out in the woods in their own self-declared “sovereign state.” Which is appropriate, because the state you and I live in sure doesn’t agree with them.

Update: Dude?

So, are there serial numbers and a registration base? Caliber selection? Ammo availability. This isn’t as simple as it sounds.

If a gun was in your v@gina, you might end up in prison like Christie Dawn Harris…

Christie Dawn Harris, the 28-year-old Oklahoma woman who used her v@gina as a holster to hide a loaded gun, was sentenced to 25 years in state prison late last month, the Smoking Gun reported.

Aside from the lengthy prison sentence, Harris was also ordered to pay more than $1,300 in fines, according to Pontotoc County District Court documents signed off by Judge Steven Kessinger. The Oklahoma woman pleaded no contest to the charges.

Police found the gun hiding in Harris’ v@gina after she was arrested in March in Ada, Okla. A drug dog sniffed the car Harris was idling in along with another woman when the dog alerted officers to meth, drug paraphernalia, a .25 caliber semi-automatic pistol and a loaded magazine during a search of the car.

Harris repeatedly told an officer that she needed to go to the bathroom while being transported to a local jail.

As part of standard operating procedure, Harris was asked to lower her underwear so an officer could check to see if she was hiding contraband. Harris initially declined, saying she was having her period, according to the Smoking Gun.

She then obeyed the officer’s orders, and that’s when they found a gun hidden inside Harris’ v@gina. Police also found bags of meth hidden in her behind.

“I observed at that time a wooden and metal item sticking out from her v@gina area,” Ada Police Officer Kathy Unbewust wrote in a report of the incident. The officer then “pulled the item from her v@gina, and found it to be a 5 shot revolver with rounds in the chamber.”

The gun was then disassembled by officers.

A person who favors abortion might as well own a gun. They’re killing people, after all. And they can try to say they’re not, but if that’s true, why don’t they want expectant mothers to see ultrasounds?

I’d love to see the timeline of a woman who’s happy to have a baby, compared to a woman who’s having a late-term abortion. My guess is that many happy moms have already developed strong feelings to the baby shown in their ultrasound photos, have been talking to their tummy, and are working on baby names, all before the 22nd week.

hawksruleva on July 9, 2013 at 4:20 PM

So extreme and sooooo out-of-touch.

According to a June National Journal poll, 50% of WOMEN SUPPORT, and 43% oppose, a ban on abortion after 20 weeks, except in cases of rape and incest.

In January, Gallup reported in January that 80% percent of Americans think abortion should be illegal in the third trimester, and 64% think it should be illegal in the second trimester.

And, in Texas where the pro-aborts, who are chanting ‘Hail, Satan!,’ have been rebuked and rebuffed by even THE CHURCH OF SATAN?

62% of Texans support the bill banning abortions after 20 weeks now before the special session. 38% want more stringent abortion laws and 35% either believe the law should be left as it is (21%) or don’t know. ONLY 26% want more relaxed abortion laws.

‘In terms of substantive policy, most of this is not particularly right-wing. Maybe the abortion stuff. These are abortion positions that are actually not strongly opposed — there is a 2-to-1 preference for that.’

– Daron Shaw, co-director of to the latest University of Texas/Texas Tribune Poll and a professor of government at the University of Texas at Austin

My firearms are in the Constitution, your vagina is not. But if guns were treated like vaginas nobody would need a permit or a license to have one with you all the time, and even committing a crime with one wouldn’t result in it being taken away from you.

If your vagina was a gun you would:

- always have the safety on.

- take training classes on how and when to use your vagina.

- never use your vagina in an unsafe manner.

- always be responsible when using your vagina.

If you practiced the same safety and precautions with your vagina that gun owners practice with their guns there would be no need for abortion.

In the same NatJour poll, the results on late-term abortion (where the question is somewhat biased against the pro-life side) are even more stark.

The poll’s question claims the bill passed last week in the House of Representatives only contains exceptions in the cases of rape or incest without mentioning that there is also an exception for when a physical health condition puts the life of the mother at risk.

Despite the biased question, the poll still finds that a majority of women support the bill (50 percent to 44 percent), with Americans overall backing the bill 48 percent to 44 percent. Independent voters back the bill by 14 points (53 percent to 39 percent).
