1 DO WINGNUT WORDS SHOW THEY EVOLVED BRAINS?11!!  Mon, May 6, 2013 5:38:03pm

Conservatives now getting inspiration from the Novel The Handmaid’s Tale?
Maybe the other way around?

I think MTV has been on this for awhile…

another thing we need to do is celebrate young women who bring a baby to term and find an adoptive parent.

The fact that our economic system doesn’t allow people to have children until they have career and substantial savings (which they may never achieve) is against the natural needs of people.

But it IS just like heartless conservatives to say that the way to celebrate young mothers is to take their babies away.

If you are actually celebrating young mothers, then you celebrate them by giving them the means to really be mothers if that’s what they want.

Putting up a baby for adoption should be celebrated? That sounds so fake.

There are too many children in the foster system who never get adopted. And these wingnuts want more children in the system?

They oppose access to contraceptives and teaching children about safe sex. They oppose welfare for the needy, even going so far as to frequently claim that lots of welfare recipients are committing fraud or are addicted to drugs or something else that is statistically full of s***. They even oppose equal pay for women. “We’re going to encourage women to have more children by making it harder for them to achieve financial stability in the first place. Derp!

And this leaves them with adoption as their only **ahem** “plausible” answer to the logistical problems caused by their fanatical opposition to abortion.

All because they can’t let go of the barbaric notion of shaming or otherwise punishing “sluts.” Because fear is the only argument they can make in favor of abstinence. Because they can’t accept that fear doesn’t work, and only results in needless suffering.

While I dont think celebrate is necessarily the right word, I think that the decision to carry the baby to term for adoptive parents should be respected, just as a decision to terminate. It is called pro-choice.

More access to birth control and sex education would help in either case.

Well this explains the celebration of Bristol Palin’s pregnancy. Until 2008, I was under the impression that conservatives hated teenage pregnancy.

For healthy white newborns, not a problem. There’s huuuuuge waiting lists for those.

The kids stuck in the system are older kids, special needs kids, non-white kids, sibling sets, kids with incarcerated parents who won’t relinquish hope of getting the kids back eventually…
