One Answer to Pro-Lifers: The Reproductive Draft

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Lindsay Beyerstein (writer of Majikthese, subtitled "Analytical philosophy and liberal politics") has an excellent rejoinder to the "Snowflake" crowd from Bush's anti-stem-cell-research photo op last week. Here's the money quote from her suggestion:

"A reproductive draft is the only fair way to settle this. I don't care how many kids a lady fundamentalist has, or whether it's healthy for her to be pregnant, or what she might rather be doing with her uterus. If her number's up, it's up. No excuses. Jesus hates whiners."

Her sarcasm dovetails nicely with Paul Waldman's "Stop the Sperm Massacre!" from The Gadflyer.
