Dr. Paul was on The View yesterday, so natch, I Tivoed it. They'd ask him a question, give him about 5 words, then talk over him and talk at him like he's an idiot.
Whoopi Goldberg acted like she knew the law better than someone who knows the constitution inside and out, and has devoted an entire career to basing laws from the document on which all laws are supposed to be based. Yes, Whoopi, there are actually places in the country where a woman can get a late-term abortion - up till 9 months! - legally, and for no "health" reasons. (Holy cow, I can't even go into the imagined health reasons for aborting a normal child at 8 months.)
Joy Behar seemed shocked - SHOCKED - that he could be a gynecologist and not be pro-choice. It's as if it never occurred to her that as a gynecologist, he saw babies on ultrasounds, watched them being born, helped them be conceived, tried to keep them alive for their entire gestation, watched them born prematurely, watched women light up in delight after finding out they were pregnant, and watched women devastated after losing their babies. Oh, and took an oath to DO NO HARM. That means killin' younguns. And let the man make his point - I know where he's going, and he's gonna blow your mind.
(He was trying hard to ask her at what point she thought abortion should be allowed since she stated vehemently that abortions at 8 months' gestation were murder. People who are pro-choice often say this, but then choose some arbitrary moment before which abortions are a woman's choice, and after which they're murder. Of course, they don't bring people on the show to talk, they bring people on that show to talk AT, so he couldn't finish anything he wanted to say.)
Kate Walsh - nowhere in the Constitution do the words "the government should make everything fair for everyone" appear. Look it up. It's very sad that women would have to travel from Arkansas to "Timbuktu" to get abortions. I mean really, cry me a river. Have you ever thought that traveling from one state to another is, in fact, cheaper than an abortion? What's for rich women now? Really, if you're gonna drop $400 to terminate your child, might as well drop another couple hundred on gas to get there. I know, have the "father" pay for it.
Sherri, Sherri, Sherri. I'm gonna type this really slowly for you. Things predate the Christians, things predate the time of Jesus (unless you're talking about him being part of the triumvirate, which is very nice, but still, Epicurus was on Earth quite a while before Jesus was) and no, the Greeks didn't throw Christians to the lions, especially before Christianity existed. Please, don't talk.
That show makes my dang spleen hurt. I wanna go back to bed. Stupid butt crack of dawn dentist appointment.
