Cruelty for Jesus: Citing God, Michigan State Senator Kim LaSata says abortion “should be painful” and women who have abortions should suffer.
LaSata, a conservative Republican with no respect for women, is Catholic, and a strong opponent of abortion rights. Earlier this week she spoke in favor of legislation that would outlaw a “surgical procedure commonly used to end second-trimester pregnancies.”
If passed, the new legislation would make second-trimester abortions “more painful and hazardous for the women who undergo them.”
While speaking in favor of the legislation limiting abortion rights, Senator LaSata exclaimed:
Of course it should be hard! And the procedure should be painful! And you should allow God to take over! And you should deliver that baby!
You should allow God to take over and deliver that baby, and it shouldn’t be made easier for you.
Clearly Senator LaSata lacks compassion and human decency, and the fact that she is a Republican only confirms this. In fact, LaSata is but one of many immoral imbeciles demanding mandatory motherhood while pushing a misogynistic agenda that would deny a woman’s right to control her own reproductive health.
Indeed, many Republicans would deny a woman an abortion no matter what the circumstances, even in the case of rape or incest. One need only look at the draconian legislation recently passed in Georgia and Alabama to understands the moral depravity of the conservative Christians trying to criminalize women’s health care.Make no mistake, Christian extremists are driving the GOP, and they are determined to take this country and the world into a new era of darkness informed by ignorance and religious superstition, an era that would set back the cause of women’s rights over 50 years.
Bottom line: Michigan State Senator Kim LaSata says abortion “should be painful” and women who have abortions should suffer.
The Republican War on Women continues.
