Mitch Daniels knows what’s best for Indiana women

by Ben Hoffman

INDIANAPOLIS — Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels plans to sign a bill that will restrict abortions and make Indiana the first state to cut off all government funding for Planned Parenthood.

The move puts at risk $4 million a year in federal family planning grants likely to be cut off because of the bill. The legislation also would ban would abortions after the 20th week of pregnancy unless there’s a substantial threat to the woman’s life or health.

Yes, decisions regarding women’s reproductive systems are best made by our government. Governors, especially male governors, are best able to make decisions regarding birth control and abortions.

It’s also an economically pragmatic move. Children who are born to mothers who don’t want them or are unable to care for them, often become criminals during their late teenage years or 20s. This will stimulate the economy by creating more jobs for private prisons, surveillance devices, gun manufacturers and retailers, and security guards.

Criminals are usually required to do a great deal of running, which also creates more demand for running apparel.

“It’s a win-win situation for all,” Daniels said at a press conference.

  1. You have to wonder if all these Republicans are drinking out of the same glass of Kool Ade.

  2. Governors, especially male governors, are best able to make decisions regarding birth control and abortions.

    Did’ja know that a Governor, a FEMALE governor, just signed a law that would allow prosecutors to charge someone with First Degree Murder for causing the death of an unborn child.

    Oh yeah, and this is the best part, she is a Democrat!

    The law allows prosecutors to charge someone with first-degree murder for causing the death of an unborn child, punishable at most by life in prison without parole. Other counts can include second-degree murder, voluntary and involuntary manslaughter.

    I wonder. What do you now say about the rights of a toenail I mean fetus I mean unborn child and legal rights?

    • No, you’re spinning the story. It’s about the right of a woman to choose. Causing the death of an unborn child is taking away the right of a woman to choose to have her baby. Anti-abortion laws take away the right of the woman to not have her baby.

  3. It’s about the right of a woman to choose. Causing the death of an unborn child is taking away the right of a woman to choose to have her baby. Anti-abortion laws take away the right of the woman to not have her baby.

    THAT would be called something else.

    Kidnapping.
    Assault.
    Something along those lines.

    For example, we agree that your arm doesn’t have “Natural Rights” and isn’t considered a “life”. But if I try to “take” that arm, I’m assaulting you.

    Same as if you tried to clip my hair against my will. Not a life, the crime is assault.

    This law specifies First Degree Murder.

    You do NOT get charged with First Degree Murder for prohibiting a woman to choose to have a baby. Something else, sure, but you simply don’t get charged with murder for not murdering someone.

    You flailing.

    And the worst part is that you know you are. You are defending a position so partisan that you can’t let it go for fear of “losing”.

    In a calm and rational discussion over beers and a cigar, we would agree that a split second after conception the cells are not “human”. We would also agree that the literal minute before literal birth, the collection of cells IS human.

    I suspect that our discussion would center more on when that transition occurs. Not IF it occurs.

    • Nope, it’s not a partisan issue; it’s a religious issue. We just killed a religious fanatic who brought great destruction and misery to the world. Christianity is no different.

      • Nope, it’s not a partisan issue; it’s a religious issue.

        Nah.

        There are some religious “commandments” that are consistent with big L Liberty; thou shalt not kill is a good one. However, there are many that are NOT consistent with big L Liberty; Thou shall not take the name of the Lord in vain. THAT is an example of a religious “commandment” that would be inappropriate to legislate.

        Killing a human being is a Natural Liberty issue.

        At some point between the swimmer piercing the egg wall and the child pooping out, the cells transform from just that, a collection of cells, to a human being. We can debate the when. There is NO debate on the IF.

      • … or we can leave the decision to the pregnant woman, which I prefer to do. 🙂

      • or we can leave the decision to the pregnant woman, which I prefer to do.

        That makes sense.

        We should create random criteria to delineate Natural Liberty for human beings.

        Maybe we could let Left-Handed Germans decide if they wanna kill red-headed men shopping for produce or not.

        Equally random and equally meaningless.

  4. There are parents who for various reasons such as lack of money to raise a child or they lack the physical health to deal with a baby with the colic who will not shut up for days . They may terminate the life of that child just to get some sleep . Is there a difference between them and those who chose to terminate a life still in the womb ?

    • Is there a difference between them and those who chose to terminate a life still in the womb ?

      In Ben’s world; no.

      A mother has the choice to be a mother or not. At any time. She should be able to chose motherhood at her will and pleasure.

  5. Mr. Hoffman ,

    Since you changed the topic .In your opinion was Bin Laden an enemy combatant or just a criminal ? It matters .
