Kansas Abortion Bill: Lawmakers Pass Sweeping Measure

The bill contains provisions to prohibit tax deductions for abortion insurance coverage and abortion services; to provide for a sales tax on abortion; to establish a personhood stance for when life begins; to limit late-term abortions; to prohibit state employees from performing abortions during the workday; and to mandate that doctors tell women that abortion cause breast cancer along with other state-approved health issues.

The bill also allows doctors to withhold medical information from a woman if it might lead her to have an abortion. It prevents medical professionals from facing a medical malpractice suit in the event that withholding the information adversely affects the health of the mother or child. A wrongful death suit could be filed in the event of the mother’s death. (via Huff Post)

What the ACTUAL fuck?

Think about this for a second: the state of Kansas — a legislature that is not made up of medical professionals — just passed a law — a law! — forcing medical professionals to lie to their patients, even if that lie will lead to serious injury or death.

Doctors help people. Doctors go to school for years to learn how to best care for their patients. Doctors swear an oath to do just that… and these politicians have decided to pass a law forcing doctors to do exactly the opposite.

This is criminal. Every single one of those lawmakers should be immediately removed from office, and when the first woman or child dies because of this law, they should all be tried for murder.

What. The. Fuck. Is. Wrong. With. These. People.

Words That are Correct

This….tiff, was brought on drinking last night with friends. I made the horrendous mistake of using the phrase “whole nother.” My hipster friends always sigh and get fake angry when that term is used. I tried to explain that the term is phonetically correct and since it is common usage we can accept it. They raged, then I raged, then we had pizza.

The term is somewhat new to the English language but does that make it incorrect? Until the 1800’s we were missing TONS of words we commonly use today.

Is a list of words that we use regularly and that were made up by our friend Bill. I am not saying every word that becomes slang should be used as common English. But, when a word is used by society for a time and is phonetically correct, why would we not adopt it? 

Language Nazi’s (yes you) like to think that we didn’t invent language ourselves and we can’t change the rules any time we want to. New words could be added daily at our bemusement. I say next time someone uses a term that is socially accepted that you stop trying to police the world and let language take its natural course. 

Here is the Websters definition for reference.
