Shadrack McGill Introduces SB205: Fetal "Personhood"

Shadrack McGill (R-8) and his Merry Band of Beef Wits have now introduced a fetal personhood bill in the Alabama Senate -SB205.

This bill would define the term "persons" to include all human beings resulting from the union of the male sperm with the female egg either from sexual intercourse or in the case of in vitro fertilization, the fertilized egg or eggs relied on by a physician for implantation in the uterus. --synopsis

Let's meet the Beef Wits: Scott Beason is well known for creating 6 hour waits to renew car tags. Gerald Allen thinks that classics like "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" and "The Color  Purple" should be "dumped in a hole and buried". Rusty Glover is an Eagle Forum member (along with Beason) who a mere 5 years ago was fulminating in the legislature about the "North American Union Conspiracy". Many tax dollars and much time later...crickets. Then there's Greg Reed - a Tiny Ayatollah in waiting - he's also backing Dial on the Ten Commandments, and can't wait to get his hands into medical practice by restricting pain medication from the chronically ill. MD? Nope. But hey, when did that ever stop our Duly Elected Leaders from playing Dr. Kildare three months a year? 

In the Legislature, it's helpful to be a lawyer. I think Allen managed to pass the Alabama Bar, so he should know better. Shad McGill "attended" community college, and Beason got a degree in geology. Glover is a high school teacher.

 Lawmakers who support personhood acknowledge their bills would violate federal law. But that's the point.

"By simply passing this bill, the lawsuits will come," said Rep. John LaBruzzo, a Republican from Metairie, La.

Well, Alabama never backed off from a lawsuit yet. We've already spent close to a million dollars on Roy Moore's fanaticism, and I'm sure we'll spend considerably more on this one. Moore is another "personhood" nut, so they have that base covered.

What will happen if personhood passes? Oh, not much.


1. No birth control except condoms

2. Prison for women who attempt to rid themselves of an unwanted pregnancy. (Iowa is trying for felony)

3.  Ectopic pregnancies are still pregnancies, so you'll just have to suffer, Mom.

4. No in vitro fertilization, because the unused eggs are left out. 

5. Women who suffer a natural miscarriage will be subject to criminal investigation and possibly prosecuted.

These are the Alabama Ayatollahs. Their ideal world is one where women "know their place" and stay in the kitchen where they belong. Can the hijab be far behind? N. Carolina is already considering giving 6 months in jail to any breast feeding woman who inadvertently bares a nipple. No country in the world save Ireland, which has been under the thumb of the Vatican for centuries, is introducing these sorts of laws.

Leave it to Bama.

Shadrack McGill (4.00 / 1)

didn't learn a damn thing in school.

Not surprising though... remember his degree from "Quack University."

"The modern conservative is engaged in one of man's oldest exercises in moral philosophy; that is, the search for a superior moral justification for selfishness."  - John Kenneth Galbraith
