Gina Miller is an Idiot

First there is this drivel Mississippi Personhood Vote was Sign of Our Dark Times.  Personally I think that the vote was a sign that Mississippians are better educated and smarter then the rest of the nation gives us credit for. Apparently the idiots like Miller are thankfully in the minority, they just make so much noise everyone assumes that the idiots like Miller are the norm.

She starts the post off singing Herman Cain's praises. Honestly what the Right Wing Wingnuts see in the guy is beyond me. They tout his 9-9-9 plan like it's THE BIBLE, the inherent word of god. I wonder if they ever stopped to think that if you flip it over it's the 6-6-6 plan. Ah the conspiracy Herman Cain is really the Anti-Christ who is pulling the wool over these good sheeples Christians' eyes. Plenty of warning signs too the sexual harassment charges and the allegations of an affair. According to Cain supporters the women were either A.) lying or B.) It was their fault cause you know when you are a woman and you work outside the home and your job puts you in a position where you are alone with a man well the poor guy just can't help acting on his urges.

Then she gets around to the ballot initiatives. Applauds that the eminent domain and immigration initiatives passed but laments the failure of the personhood amendment. She maintains that human life begins at conception ( no scientific proof but who needs science when you have The Bible to quote from). According to Miller, this is a person

She goes on to state that the initiative would cost no money to implement, which is a bit misleading as the repercussions if the initiative had passed could have proven extremely costly to the taxpayers of Mississippi.

She then starts ranting about pro-choice people raising their legitimate concerns about the initiative, including their concerns about contraceptives being outlawed. First she claims the pro-choice people are lying and then in a rambling manner goes on to say that well yes some contraceptives would be outlawed, but hey why would anyone have a problem with that.

And then Miller starts ranting about SIN and quoting Bible Scriptures. Ironic how these people claim they aren't trying to force their religious beliefs on anyone but use those beliefs to justify this outrageous personhood initiative. I would like to believe that we have seen the end of it but considering Phil Bryant (co-chair of the Personhood Amendment) was elected Governor I am afraid that while we won the battle the War on Women is still raging in Mississippi.

If these so called Christians were serious about ending abortion they would
  1. Teach Comprehensive Sex Education in our public schools so young men and women will know how to prevent unwanted pregnancies and STDs.
  2. Require insurance companies to cover contraceptives the same way they cover other prescription medications.
  3. Require pharmacies to fill prescriptions for contraceptives including the morning after pill in a timely manner.
  4. Provide the morning after pill to any woman who is a victim of rape or incest free of charge.
  5. Have social programs in place to help single Mothers with housing, food and daycare.
