If Donald Trump's going to spread intensely absurd and dangerous lies about abortion, then I'm just going to go ahead and advocate for subjective him to an extremely late-term abortion.
Trump was beyond a Trump-level of disgusting last night. He said women give birth to babies. Then “they take care of the baby. They wrap the baby beautifully. And then the doctor and mother determine whether or not they will execute the baby.” That’s a pathetic and abhorrent lie.— Scott Dworkin (@funder) April 28, 2019
It's a pathetic and abhorrent lie that tens of thousands of people heard and instantly believed because their president/god said it.
There is zero chance that this won't lead to more violence against people who work at or ever go to reproductive health clinics. It's also incredibly alarming that he just gets to say this shit, just complete bald-faced lies about something that has never and would never actually happen, and keep on being fucking president. Why can't we impeach him again? Something about it not being practical?
I don't know if Trump was or thought he was referencing the times when parents have to make the heart-wrenching decision of whether to let their newborn baby die because something went so wrong in their development that even if they do survive, it will take multiple operations and even after that, the child will be unlikely to live more than a couple years and will probably suffer a lot during that short life. That is something that happens and it's a horrific and devastating reality that has nothing to do with abortion. It's a huge slap in the face to parents who have been through something that is inconceivable to those of us who haven't been through it to use that reality for vague abortion-related fearmongering political points.
I'm so tired.
