Even if abortions are banned, folks will still have lots and lots of sex, just for fun. There are still those abortion pills out there, so what we need next are some more drug laws, banning those abortion pills. We've done very well with our drug laws, banning methamphetamine and marijuana, and now nobody uses those drugs anymore (ahem). Next, contraceptives such as condoms and birth control pills must be banned, or else they're going to keep having sex, just for fun! Recreational sex, can we ever do away with it?

Apparently, these men believe a thirteen-year-old girl is sometimes nothing more than her father's baby factory.

Is this good or what? We'll get to see our AG on TV trying to beat case law, along with costing the taxpayers of this state big bucks to do it. Smart folks we got in the statehouse, voted in by more smart folks across the state. What a waste of time and money!

Apparently Andy Mayberry is also in favor of lighting taxpayer money on fire and watching it burn. Because passing this bill will simply result in another lawsuit that the state has to try to defend that will be found unconstitutional. You know, I really didn't vote for any of you to go propose social legislation. I voted for you to fix the economy, jobs, healthcare, and protect citizens of this state, not to go say who can marry who and what a woman can or cannot do with her body.
