On the same day that Arizona Congresswoman Gabby Giffords retired — Gabby, the epitome of class, courage and whose personal tragedy brought together parties on both sides of the aisle — Arizona governor and immigrant hater Jan Brewer stuck her finger in President Obama’s face, all because he took issue with some stupid book she published.
Boy, Republicans really cannot help themselves when it comes to the President. I guess Brewer went to the Joe Wilson School Of Disrespectfully Pointing Your Finger At Obama And Acting Like A Fucking Dick.
Wow. Common sense prevails, for once, in Arizona.
Arizona has become the first state in the nation to criminalize abortions based on the sex or race of a fetus.
The law makes it a Class 3 felony, punishable up to 7 years in jail, for doctors to perform sex- or race-selection abortions.
Republican supporters of the law said that some populations increasingly seek abortions based on the fetus’ sex. Legislator Steve Montenegro said he advocated for the legislation because of fears women would choose to abort because they didn’t like the gender or the race of the baby, according to the Arizona Republic.
But Democratic lawmakers, the newspaper reports, said there is scant evidence that this is a problem. Katie Hobbs, a Democrat from Phoenix, said that the only proof offered of this practice was a magazine article discussing abortions in China and India.
The law also allows the father of an aborted fetus to bring a civil action and to recover money damages against a doctor or other health professional who performs a race- or sex-selection abortion.
Just saw Jan Brewer’s wonderful performance on that little televised debate for the first time tonight, after seeing a commercial for a certain movie, and now it all makes sense.
