Rep. Chris Smith: Fetuses ‘Most Persecuted Minority In the World’

by Jack Stuef

The real abortion 'business.'The House passed the No Taxpayer Funding For Abortion Act yesterday evening by a 251-175 vote. This has no chance of becoming law, but considering Republicans have promised to make abortion illegal since Roe v. Wade was decided 40 years ago, it’s not like they’ve really ever planned on banning it. If they did ban it, where would they get all those single-issue voters and campaign cash they depend on? People who hate gays? Those folks are dying off pretty quickly. Bill sponsor Rep. Chris Smith, the guy who originally stuck something into this bill that would define for women the “correct” way to have been raped if they hoped to get an abortion, said on the House floor that “some of our politicians, while they talked about human rights, never lifted a finger to protect the most persecuted minority in the world: the child in the womb.” Of course.

Because if there’s one person who knows which minority group is persecuted the most, it’s a rich white male Republican politician. The line comes at the end of his remarks:

Let’s skip trying to find out who wins the contest for “world’s most persecuted” for a second, despite the glaring contenders for that prize, and decide if fetuses are persecuted at all. Well, what are fetuses? They are tiny little beings that lounge around all day doing absolutely nothing while they leech all their nutrients off their host human. A fetus doesn’t even feed itself, much less get off its ass and get a job. Sure, it doesn’t have the right to vote, but neither do children or teenagers, and at least most of them have the decency not to roll around in their own waste for months on end.

Even when Republican legislators try to force fetuses to testify about their “plight,” the fetuses refuse to cooperate. When was the last time fetuses held a protest march? They’ve “endured” their plum position for millennia without complaint.

But you’d better watch out, fetuses: if conservatives start to treat you the way they treat other minorities, you’re in big trouble. [Raw Story]

It's kind of cute how the Republicans keep passing bills that (a) aren't going to become law, but (b) frighten or piss off millions of people while (c) not making the people who vote for them any more likely to vote for them. I mean, if you're an anti-abortion zealot, you're already voting Republican, and if you aren't, this kind of shit will freak you out.

Great strategery, is what I'm saying.

mumbly_joe May 5, 2011 at 3:33 pm

They're also passing laws that are consistent with their notions of private enterprise and keeping government bureacrats out of medical decisions, by which I mean, Republicans are complete shitbags.

Seriously, whatever happened to "it's your money, you know how to spend it best"? Even the bill's name only makes sense if you decide that it's really all the government's money, at some point.

Fetuses take NO PERSONAL RESPONSBILITY FOR THEIR ACTIONS. And you know how Republicans feel about personal responsibility*. Fetuses just take and take, and never give back to society.

*Republicans don't care -about responsibility, or they wouldn't constantly fuck beings other than their spouses. They just like to use the term to get old white people to think about "welfare queens" and freak out about public spending.

My former fetus turned 24 today and is not a single mom nor had an unwanted pregnancy. And has verifiable employment.

Don't you have to be an actual PERSON before you can be a persecuted person?

Nevermind the women, who are ACTUALLY people (despite Repugnicants' best efforts lately) and who are routinely persecuted by Republicans trying to pass laws making miscarriage punishable by death, deciding what constitutes the rape of a woman's body for women, deciding that abortion shouldn't be legal in some situations because women can't make that decision for themselves and might later regret it, who value the lives of a small grouping of cells who MIGHT develop into a person if they don't become one of the approximately 2/3 such groupings which naturally become a miscarriage (chemical miscarriage, I think the term is), often before the woman even knows she's pregnant, over that of a woman, and who routinely attempt to take away women's access to health care and their right to make decisions about their lives and bodies. No, women aren't people worthy of equal treatment – certainly not at the expense of that small grouping of cells and SPERM!!!! which MIGHT, maybe one day if you're lucky though statistically probably not, become a baby which you can then yell at for using too much government money.

If fetuses really were a persecuted minority, then Republicans wouldn't be lifting a finger trying to help them. So clearly fetuses are rich and privileged and run the world. In which case, their tyrannical hegemony over the common man cannot be tolerated. Therefore, we as a nation should be funding and encouraging abortions to free us from the yoke of our fetus overlords. Why these GOPers can't even keep their own logic straight is a mystery.

I again repeat myself to every fucktard legislator in Washington D.C. or Austin, Texas: keep your hands, morality and religious convictions away from my wife and daughter. Stick to the important issues like:

–Jobs
–Getting us out of two wars
–TSA and all its security theatre
–Terrorism
–Debt
–Education of all of our youth

And since I'm telling you what I want, let's legalize some Mary Jane on 4-20 next year and see how that helps mellow out folks and solve the budget.

Go to work shit stain and give us a report in 90 days telling what you accomplished. Hint: not one fucking thing.

Jack in fairness to the Republicans of the 1970s, not all of them were fighting Roe v. Wade from the get-go. Gerald Ford was pro-choice. And he and Betty Ford, championed the Equal Rights Amendment for the lady-folk. My oh my how times have changed.

Once again, credit belongs to St. Ronnie for co-opting those knuckle-dragging Moral Majority types. The rest as they say is history. Vote Republican in 2012. Tax cuts and fetuses!

Time for a Lee Atwater shout-out here. Lee, btw, welcomed OBL to the Hell in which I wish I believed. They will be bunking together with other divisive destructive narcissists.

Gopherit May 5, 2011 at 4:07 pm

Unless he went to the Santorum "Happy Birthday, don't putrefy too soon" party for his fetus-son.

Gopherit May 5, 2011 at 4:10 pm

I am waiting for the republicans to start taxing fallow uteruses. Remember ladies, it's why Jesus put you here.

LabRodent May 5, 2011 at 4:12 pm

So many people will not get that snark. upfist to you. LMAO

Chet Kincaid May 5, 2011 at 5:40 pm

You misunderestimate us Sir or Madame!

jus_wonderin May 5, 2011 at 4:13 pm

I am not gonna drink from a fountain that a fetus has just used. Haayyl No!

DaRooster May 5, 2011 at 4:17 pm

And it has their name on it.

horsedreamer_1 May 5, 2011 at 4:35 pm

But what about the greatest law of all, finder's keeper's?

DaRooster May 5, 2011 at 4:37 pm

Eventually… they will find it… again.

mumbly_joe May 5, 2011 at 4:17 pm

Rep. Smith calls it "abortion", I call it, "ending the culture of dependency". Get off the plantation, fetuses!

horsedreamer_1 May 5, 2011 at 4:26 pm

Get off the implantation, you mean.

Lascauxcaveman May 5, 2011 at 4:17 pm

Tell her we want Firefly back. And Arrested Development.

WriteyWriterton May 5, 2011 at 4:24 pm

Older ex-fetus would agree as to "AD." Not sure of ex-f's view on "Firefly."

I used to be a fetus, but I decided it was time to grow up.

i don't think fetuses are persecuted. some of them even get to live in jars.

GOPCrusher May 5, 2011 at 4:31 pm

We also would have accepted Glenn Beck as a response.

Doktor Zoom May 5, 2011 at 4:34 pm

Shirley Sherrod bragged about not helping a fetus, and the NAACP crowd roared its approval.

GOPCrusher May 5, 2011 at 4:34 pm

And why are they trying to force fetus rights down our throats, if they are a minority?

Doktor Zoom May 5, 2011 at 4:38 pm

Seems like every time you turn around, the Fetus Lobby is trying to cram some part of its Fetus Lifestyle down our throats!

GOPCrusher May 5, 2011 at 4:42 pm

I always feel uncomfortable when I see one board a plane.

SorosBot May 5, 2011 at 5:04 pm

Especially when they're wearing fetal garb.

Mort_Sinclair May 5, 2011 at 4:42 pm

Because 60 percent of all fertilized eggs wash out in menses, females in America should send their used tampons to Rep. Smith and ask him to conduct a proper funeral for the "dead child."

GOPCrusher May 5, 2011 at 4:47 pm

Rick Santorum can take them home. That shouldn't leave too many emotional scars on the children.

Mort_Sinclair May 5, 2011 at 4:55 pm

Haha! I've offended somebody's sensibilities–they gave me a thumbs' down! Yes!

I think they can probably put them in a big pickle jar, sort of like Barbara Bush. Easy storage. Just sayin'.

mumbly_joe May 5, 2011 at 5:17 pm

It's almost as though they don't get that offending their sensibilities is like 60% of the *point* of Wonkette.

Cicada May 5, 2011 at 5:23 pm

And the other 40% is making jokes about buttsecks and furries. Oh, and diaper fetishes.

RadioGroundZero May 5, 2011 at 4:45 pm

Gruesome fetus pics or GTFO.

anniegetyerfun May 5, 2011 at 5:16 pm

There goes the fucking neighborhood, right?

anniegetyerfun May 5, 2011 at 5:18 pm

I wouldn't, either. I mean, some of my best friends are fetuses, but still.

ganmerlad May 5, 2011 at 5:19 pm

If pro-lifer’s had to care for every unwanted child, they would shut up. I have never understood that. They insist a fetus has to live, but once born, they want no responsibility. Once born, the child is on their own, often growing up (at the least) resented, or (at the most) in horrendous conditions. That breeds people full of hate. People full of hate make the rest of us miserable. Pro-lifers should put up space in their own families, or shut up about deciding if the time is right.

For once, I would love to hear a conservative view thought all the way through instead of it simply being a rallying chant. I won’t hold my breath.

ganmerlad May 5, 2011 at 5:30 pm

If pro-lifer's had to care for every unwanted child, they would back off. That's something I have never understood. They insist a fetus has to live, but once born, they want no responsibility. Once born, the child is on their own, often growing up (at the least) resented, or (at the most) in horrendous conditions. That breeds people full of hate. People full of hate make the rest of us miserable. Pro-lifers should put up space in their own families for these children, or shut up about deciding if the time is right for those who aren't ready.

For once, I would love to hear a conservative view thought all the way through instead of it simply being a rallying chant. I won't hold my breath.

comrad_darkness May 5, 2011 at 6:03 pm

Don't encourage them.

MinAgain May 5, 2011 at 6:14 pm

What's next? Separate, but equal wombs?

Beck_is_Trig May 5, 2011 at 6:14 pm

Okay so I shook off my old nickname like a snake shedding skin (oddly appropriate metaphor considering the subjects of my new nickname) because teabaggers are lost, but they no longer matter. By the way, I think my nickname could be the title for Jerome Corsi's next "fact-based" book; it's on his wavelength.

Now, as to this little douchebag….you want to know what's harrowing for me to see displays like this? People vote for this guy…and he's childish, so, so childish. He's fucking old, too. Why do people vote for this old, childish douchenut? I guess that's my question…I can't think of any more appropriate question to express my existential confusion over this walking conundrum….

ganmerlad May 5, 2011 at 8:02 pm

I actually thought about this earlier today. I am positive that this guy and other conservatives (insecure white men) in general don't give a shit about 'unborn babies', but they do give a big shit about loosing the right to make decisions about anything that involves them. The entire conservative movement is about keeping (or fear of loosing) personal power and this fight in particular is simply a gender war. The fact a woman can decide on her own whether to keep a child or not is infuriating to these people. That ass at the podium realizes that there is a good chance a woman wouldn't want to have a child with him. So he wants to outlaw her ability to decide. Do you follow?

It isn't about life, it is about who decides. If it was a bad time for *him* to have a child, he would INSIST on an abortion. In his mind, it should be up to him, period.

I don't think he is childish, I think he is a lying hypocritical wanker. The conundrum to me is how women and minorities can be "conservative" unless they are masochistic/brainwashed.

JustPixelz May 5, 2011 at 6:47 pm

If they're serious, the Repubicans will extend child tax credit and deduction to the moment of conception.

politics_nerd May 5, 2011 at 7:00 pm

Are these goddamned stupid motherfucking idiots too goddamned fucking dumb to realize or already know that the goddamned fucking son-of-a-bitch cockstained HYDE Amendment exists? I mean, really.

padremickey May 5, 2011 at 7:17 pm

Fetuses are like the Christians of the second century. Everbuddy alla time persecutes them. YOU try to get a fetus to offer incense to the genius of the Emperor. I dares ya!!

DustBowlBlues May 5, 2011 at 7:20 pm

Jesus. Turned on Hardball and those two moms are on. The Muslin lady and the one who understands how it feels to lose a son but also sympathizes with persecuting people like the Muslin firefighter who died. fuck me.

But I digress: The fetuses better enjoy the Republitards' love because the mother who didn't want them in the first place isn't going to get any (including WIC that would actually feed the fetus something vaguely healthy) and the second they're born, they're not go to get any, either.

crybabyboehner May 5, 2011 at 8:30 pm

I am Fetus, hear me roar!

"You wanted that job. You deserved that job. But they gave it to a fetus."

ShaveTheWhales May 6, 2011 at 11:36 pm

Aha. Easy answer.

They'll get borned, and then we won't give a shit about them.

badhatharry May 8, 2011 at 12:52 pm

Man, that Senator in that top pic can't draw for shit.

Jenna Maroney May 8, 2011 at 1:34 pm

(I hate the thought that I'm killing your joke)…that prick actually went on the Senate floor and was all, "My adopted 8 year-old drew this! Listen to the children and feel guilty, assholes!"

Four minutes in. http://www.thedailyshow.com/watch/wed-july-19-200

"What, are you going to kill me?"

Gopherit May 5, 2011 at 3:53 pm
