Jeez ladies, get a womb
So clearly Americans care deeply about babies. Now I know most cultures do, but to be fair, the French are much more concerned with their dogs than their children so, there you go.
And it’s with this knowledge that we turn to Michele Bachmann, that font of maternal knowledge, who yesterday denounced Michelle Obama’s campaign to encourage breast feeding because it is a typically terrifying over reach of the “nanny state”. Get it? Nanny state? Ahahaha that’s as funny as it is smart and true: as anyone who has read 1984 knows, first Big Brother encourages breast feeding, then they use mind controlling lasers.
It’s funny though that this news comes as the Texas legislature considers a bill that would “require women to have a sonogram at least 24 hours before an abortion”. This means of course that while conservatives couldn’t give a crap about how you raise a child outside the womb, they are very interested in you being able to see it while it’s still in your belly. So I guess Michele Bachmann would thinks you’re a sicko if you stop baking an unwanted cake, but if you take it out of the oven and decorate with swastikas and ice it with poisoned frosting that’s none of her business.
This kind of info makes me want to return to the womb. It sure beats paying rent and utilities are included!
