Additional Musings on the Oklahoma Abortion Ultrasound Law

May 8, 2008

Demarcationville wins the internet today, with this piece inspired by Oklahoma’s new law requiring ultrasounds prior to abortion.

As someone who was raised Conservative and Southern Baptist, she explains that although she is “still innately Pro-Life:”

…I reject the idea that any state, government, leader, court, man or woman has authority over the area beyond my bloomers.

You know, as a woman, there are few things I control in this world, but I’d damn well consider my reproductive “parts” among them – so you’re out of your jurisdiction. Seriously, ya’ll don’t know me like that.

“You’re out of your jurisdiction.” – I just had to repeat that, because I love it so much and it gave me a much-needed chuckle. The rest of her commentary is also good, including her explanation of the assumptions that underlie the forced ultrasound thinking.
