Senator Shadrack McGill Supports Personhood Bill In Alabama Because Jesus, That’s Why

Forced Birthers are still forcing their Fetus First agenda on American women. This time, it’s women in Alabama.

Check out Alabama Senator Shadrack McGill who, despite having possibly the world’s coolest name, is a sanctimonious asshole.

You see, Shadrack wants to introduce a personhood bill in Alabama that would define life as beginning at conception. Why?

The answer has to do with eagle eggs, Jesus, hell-bound aborted babies, and infertile couples who, ironically, are little more than baby-egg murderers.

    The name Shadrack is pretty darn cool (I assume it comes from Shadrach, of Meshach, Shadrach, and Abednego fame.)

    Too bad he’s a dick.

    @Xecky Gilchrist: I was just going to point out that, for someone so allegedly devoted to his Bible, he spells his name wrong. He better get on that, pronto.

    Hey, it’d be a better use of his time than this crap.

    @Xecky Gilchrist: There’s a joke, i can’t remember how it goes, about “Shadrach, Meshach, and A Bad Negro.” I can’t remember where I heard it either. Richard Pryor, maybe?

    I’m guessing there are enough well-to-do infertile couples in AL to exert enough pressure to prevent this cretin’s bill from getting any further than his desk and the other offices’ wastebaskets.

    Then again, if McGill is only concerned about the declining white baby birth rates, then he might have a point. (Oh dear lurd, that’s what he’s concerned about isn’t it?)

    Yep.

    Fairly convinced that a non-trivial amount of the anti-abortion sentiment is people freaking out at the “more conservative” minorities outbreeding white people. (It’s an extremely real concern for them, as a trip to any PJM comments section will verify).

    If people in Mississippi rejected a bill like this last year, does anybody think it will fare any better in Alabama?

    I’m sure it’s comforting to all those couples whose babies spontaneously abort to bring up his theological conviction that the little dears are going to hell too.

    We’d like to think so, but this is deepest TeaHadiLand we’re talking about. You remember, where the state’s chief justice(!) wouldn’t remove the ten commandments from the courthouse.

    Because he’s on a mission to find…the Kwisatz Shadrak.

    I’m glad he’s doing this, really. I’m sick and tired of arguing with low information friends that want to claim these are just “two different opinions from people of good will” shit. No – these are people that would gladly take away birth control (my wife called me crazy the first time I said that)and put themselves in charge of women’s vagina’s from start to finish. This kind of crap will actually catch people’s attention.

    I don’t know why they just don’t cut to the chase and pass a bill declaring all women as chattel.
    And make them worth 3/5 of a man, while they’re at it.

    Honestly, I am as well. These people are pretty twisted individuals and I’d like to know what they’re up to.

    Getting this out actually hurts their cause. You know, because the more you actually educate people the less likely they are to believe superstitious bullshit from sanctimonious idiots.

    So, keep on rocking Imani.

    I don’t want your stalkers here to tee off but I have something I’d like to have done, or at least specced. It’s interesting to me and it’s something I’m not sure you’d be interested in doing. Graphic artist portrait work in a series…more or less.

    Living in southern Mississippi during the nineties, I thought MS was a lot like where I grew up in east KY, except with black people, and racial tension you could cut with a knife. But not a malevolent tension. Every time I ventured into AL, it was like a wall of bad vibes at the state line, and I couldn’t wait to escape the hell back to MS, of all places.

    Don’t know what it was, but was like a alien moon, or something. Both places are insane with religion and on the topic of sex of any kind, and hardcore anti abortion. Even many of the black folk that lived there. There was one brave PP (I think) outpost in Jackson, MS, that was always in the news, barely hanging on with an entire state wanting it shut down, and surrounded by protesters . I guess it’s the same now.

    Actually, it sounds to me just like a cartoon Southern Senator, like somebody out of L’il Abner (“Who?”)

    These guys. The actual senator from the strip was called Jack S. Phogbound.

    For a more recent reference, Senator Bedfellow of Bloom County also comes to mind.

    Majority of Americans Trust Just One TV Network
    A new Public Policy Polling survey on television news finds that there’s only one source more Americans trust than distrust: PBS. 52% of voters say they trust PBS to only 29% who don’t trust it.

    The other seven outlets polled on are all distrusted by a plurality of voters.

    No wonder the wingnuts hate PBS so passionately. What a strange country we live in. On the one hand large majorities like the government to be there with a helping hand, when they need it, and s upport progressive policies. On the other hand they fear and mistrust their government, by and large. And are open to believe all kinds of propaganda from the republicans.

    Their continued existence now hangs by a thread, and by thread I mean “Federal judge”. MS passed a trap law last year requiring anyone performing abortions to have admitting privileges at a local hospital. Funny, though, all the local hospitals refuse to grant those privileges to the doctors at that clinic.

    Just coincidence, I’m sure.

    (Rachel Maddow has done some great reporting on this over the past few months.)

    Well, my vote for “coolest name” goes for a japanese dude named “Tomokato”.

    To deal with these fundies and their “single-cell humans” obsessions, could somebody PLEASE post a YouTube from an IVF clinic, where some adolescent bepimpled lab tech is pipetting into a tube of eggs with a

    “Now watch this! With this simple flick of a finger I can FORCE your so-called OMNIPOTENT GOD to do my bidding, and create souls for the dozens of eggs in this test tube! SUCK ON THIS, JAHWEH, BWAHAHAAH!”

    Might not make the dumby-fundys change their opinions, but they deserve public mockery.

    Every time a personhood bill comes up, someone should introduce an amendment that requires a Confirmation of Fetushood (or whatever) that names the mother and the father. Father to have secondary custody rights, but shared financial responsibility. (Obviously tweaks for rape, abuse, etc.)

    It bugs me that the conversation seems to assume that women get pregnant all by themselves. Consequences of sex should be shared by both participants.
