The robo-partisans want to extend 14TH Amendment constitutional rights to zygotes: citizenship for the fertilized egg. Big deal.
I can own a gun – lots of guns. I can shoot and kill a citizen who breaks in to my house or scares me on the street. I have the gun: the perception of threat is mine. The NRA and ALEC tell me so.
I guess if we recognized rape pregnancies as intruders, or any untimely pregnancy as scary – citizen or not – I should have the right to defend myself. The perception of threat should be mine.
The catch? I think the robo-partisans would have to accept my rights if only doctors used a tiny tiny tiny little gun to end the pregnancy, preferably one purchased at an NRA - ALEC member outlet.
