The smirking gentleman to the right has proposed a law to the Texas legislature that would make abortion a crime punishable by death. Of the woman.
A Republican state lawmaker in Texas has reintroduced a bill that would criminalize abortion without exception, making it possible for women to be convicted of homicide and sentenced to death for having the procedure.
Texas state Rep. Tony Tinderholt (R) was placed under state protection in 2017 when he first introduced the bill because of the death threats he received, The Washington Post reported Wednesday.
Of course that’s the important news, that Tinderholt received death threats, not that he’s threatening to execute a substantial number of women for their “immorality”. This is not the first time Tinderholt has been in the news. He has condemned Sharia law, oblivious to the fact that threatening legalized murder of women is about as barbaric and primitive as it gets. He is also committed to protecting the sanctity of marriage and has been frantic in his opposition to gay marriage.
He’s big on personal responsibility.
“Right now, it’s real easy,” Tinderholt told the Texas Observer in 2017. “Right now, they don’t make it important to be personally responsible because they know that they have a backup of ‘oh, I can just go get an abortion.’ Now, we both know that consenting adults don’t always think smartly sometimes. But consenting adults need to also consider the repercussions of the sexual relationship that they’re gonna have, which is a child.”
He has been married 5 times.
Man, that dude is a hypocritical dumbass. I hope his bill gets slapped down hard, but you never know…it’s Texas.
