    Well, it’s getting clearer and clearer:

    And what of eggs fertilized in labs? If abortions are outlawed in cases of “known” pregnancy — as early as a fertilized egg, according to Chambliss — should fertilized eggs that have yet to be transferred to a woman’s uterus have legal protections?

    The Republican state senator revealed his real argument: The bill does not address all potential children, but rather women’s bodies.

    “The egg in the lab doesn’t apply,” Chambliss said. “It’s not in a woman. She’s not pregnant.”

    So life doesn’t start at conception after all. It has nothing to do with the embryo/fetus in any way. It’s entirely about controlling women. I mean, none of that is terribly surprising, but it is nice to see the lawmakers finally let it slip.

    I’d suggest boycotting Alabama businesses, but there’s almost no consumer facing companies there. Ironically, the two that I could find: Mercedes Benz North America, and Saks Fifth Avenue. I wonder how many liberals realize that?

    Excellent picture! I mean that.

    All these Steve stories make me realize how much of a sweetheart Samwise must be. (He’s my first cat, so I don’t have good context!)

    @Martin: In other reproductive policy news,

    Last summer, the State Department issued new rules unilaterally changing the department’s interpretation of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), a 1952 law that, along with the 14th Amendment, codifies eligibility for U.S. birthright citizenship.

    “The U.S. Department of State interprets the INA to mean that a child born abroad must be biologically related to a U.S. citizen parent,” the State Department’s website says. “Even if local law recognizes a surrogacy agreement and finds that U.S. parents are the legal parents of a child conceived and born abroad… if the child does not have a biological connection to a U.S. citizen parent, the child will not be a U.S. citizen at birth.”

    For some strange reason, this only seems to apply to LGBT couples who use surrogates.

    The best people.

    A federal firearms dealer in Northern California was charged Tuesday with mail fraud, identity theft and illegal gun sales in an alleged scam that used the stolen names of law enforcement officers to help sell prohibited weapons to members of the public.

    Joseph John Deaser IV, who had federal firearms licenses for companies such as Capital Gun Glub and Anarchy Armory on Opportunity Drive in Roseville, was charged in an information filed in federal court in Sacramento with using the names of his own law enforcement customers to sell about 50 new handguns to non-law enforcement buyers in violation of state gun laws.

    “The purpose of the scheme was to obtain new non-roster handguns using the identities of sworn peace officers that Deaser would subsequently sell to individuals who were not sworn peace officers, and who were, therefore, prohibited by California law from purchasing new non-roster handguns directly from an FFL,” the charging document states. Deaser could not be reached for comment Tuesday, and the number for his businesses was not working, but a court filing Wednesday indicated Deaser is scheduled to be arraigned May 30 before U.S. District Judge Troy L. Nunley. The filing also states that he is to appear for a waiver of indictment and a change of plea hearing.

    Deaser faces 10 counts – two alleging mail fraud, one charging aggravated identity theft, six charging he made false entries as a federal firearms license dealer and one alleging illegal sale by a licensed firearms dealer – and could face up to 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.

    We have a Maine coon cat. They have hot tempers but they can’t hold a grudge. Our Maine coon is a complete asshole to the other cats, but he loves his humans.

    I had my usual fight with him today at breakfast and then again at lunch. I came in intending to sit in my chair, but he was lounging there. Usually I just pretend I am going to sit down anyway and he moves. Today he was actually sound asleep so I tried to move him to a better place. He woke up hissing and spitting.

    I yelled, he hissed and spat from the coffee table. About five minutes later I let him sniff my hand and then he let me scratch his head. I went back to my room and he went back to sleep on my chair.

    My mixed siamese semi-ferals would have been in peace talks for weeks after today, but on the other hand they wouldn’t have escalated tensions to such a level so quickly.

    so if a pregnant woman kills a person or does a crime, does the fetus get charged as an accessory?

    @Rick Smeltzer: Our Maine coon is leaving clumps of fur everywhere, on chairs, in the bathroom sink, on the kitchen counter, on every patch of rug or carpet everywhere in the house. Would shearing help his disposition? Haircuts certainly help mine.

    Women with the legal status of incubators. That’s always been the goal.

    @Cacti: They don’t even want us as incubators. White evangelical males hate women. That’s why they want to capture us so young. Turn us into frightened housepets. If they wait until the age of consent they are too late.

    These “Christian” theocrat monsters are more despicable than a typical Fratboy rapist.

    They hate women, demand to rule over women, understand how to do that in their very peculiar religions cult. But in the real world, America as we have grown to know and love America, that won’t work because at the age of 18, girls can legally leave, and never pay those assholes any attention, ever again.

    As the birth rate drops, it will drop fastest among Southern Baptist and other Calvinist church memberships.

    I empathize with you more than I can say. Each year, I travel twice with three cats (born feral) between the Bahamas and Maine, with a variety of stops along the way, and at each they have to be tricked and wrestled into their carriers for the next leg of the trip (each of which includes either at least one ferry trip or small, private airplane ride. My beloved ad much-missed Maine coon cat was totally chill about the entire endeavor; these three, not so much. I have shed much blood and many tears of frustration.
