Justice Ginsburg, Happy Feminist

"Women, it is now acknowledged, have the talent, capacity, and right to participate equally in the economic and social life of the Nation."

Now that's a pretty good line, if you're giving the commencement address at Wellesley. It's not so impressive in a partial-birth abortion opinion. An abortion opinion means some talented woman, and I acknowledge her talent, participated equally with some equally talented man, and the two equally talented people got drunk and screwed.

How talented do you have to be to have sex and not use birth control? I think a Cro-Magnon couple could handle that one. Oog and Oola. Dogs can have sex without using birth control. I just don't understand how partial-birth abortion could send Justice Ginsburg into spasms of feminist delight.

"Ruth, Ruth, I'm pregnant. What should I do?"

"You participate equally in the economic and social life of the Nation!"

Ruth, like a lot of liberals, would much rather spout her happy choice-equality-freedom rhetoric instead of dealing with the reality of abortion. The reality of abortion is that he doesn't love you, you don't love him, and neither of you love the kid you created. That ain't nothing to cheer about. If the Beatles were singing that song they wouldn't know where to start. "All you need is abortion. Abortion. All you need is abortion. Abortion." That's just a sad song, man.

I imagine most people who have an abortion feel guilt. Or betrayed. Or just bad, they feel bad. They feel like they don't have love in their hearts and they did a bad thing. Or maybe they feel nothing. Maybe our Supreme Court has created a bunch of sport-fucking nihilists who don't feel anything about what they do. But what pregnant woman goes into an abortion clinic singing about sisterhood and the emancipation of women?

I swear, Ginsburg must put a tape recorder under pillow at night. "Equality, equality, equality." She's on message all the time, got the equality loop running in her brain. All the normal people are unhappy about their abortions. Most people just don't want to talk about it at all. Ruth is overjoyed about abortion. She's so proud. Men don't have babies, and now you're not having a baby, too. It's equality!

You know what? Your choice sucks, Ruth. It's a horrible choice. Choice number one: give birth to a child you don't want and is going to ruin your life. Or choice number two: abort it and feel guilt for the rest of your life about the life you extinguished. Awesome. I can see why you're so giddy with happiness.

Just throwing this out there, but is it possible that a society ruled by Roe v. Wade forces more and more women to make this horrible, horrible choice that really sucks ass, and nobody wants to make it? I just don't think you should be bragging, Ruthie.
