Women Aren’t People, They’re “Hosts”
Fertile women of Gilead’s Handmaid’s Tale (Hulu, airing today) were not seen as people. They were mere vessels carrying the babies of men.
Too many theocratic Republican legislators see women the same way today.

Women don’t have bodies. They are incubators for other people’s bodies.

Pro-Lifers Killing Kids
Plenty of “pro-lifers” are okay with killing kids.
On the one hand, they preach against contraception, claiming it might cause an abortion. And no woman should have the right to terminate a pregnancy!
On the other hand, they have no problem taking away kids’ food and medical care, which will leave some of them dead.
Yes indeed, an awful lot of “pro-lifers” want to defund Obamacare and deny medical services to at least eight million children.
And last week “pro-life” Congress members voted to slash $40 billion from food stamps. Nearly half go to kids. (And then they lavish tax subsidies on rich corporate interests.)
