Ancephaly in the Right Wing
Sometimes I think some folks on the religious right suffer from ancephaly. There's no disputing that military insurance does not pay for abortion except in cases of risk to the mother's life, but what value is there in bringing an ancephaletic fetus to term? It's not a person, and it never will be. It's a malfunctioning collection of cells. It's just emotionaly cruelty to the poor woman who is probably going to get asked all the usual questions - "Oh! When are you due?" "Is it a boy or a girl?" and so on for months! And childbirth is something people die from. Why go through it for something that will never be a baby? It's insane!!! Why put a woman through an extra five months of prenatal care? You can't say paying for the abortion services is more expensive than five months of prenatal care, plus labor and delivery. That's a bold faced lie. So that leaves only the "moral" question. This is the part where I'm pretty sure some of these folks were born without a brain. The only moral question here is "How would you like to be treated in this situation?" Would you like to be told that you've got to carry a zombie in your body for an extra five months, or would you like to have someone kindly and gently offer to take care of it for you with a small surgical procedure and you'll be back on your feet in a day or two and ready to try again in a month or so. I can't believe these nimwits control our country. Their version of god and morality is utterly absurd to me.
