It Figures

So Alabama passed the most restrictive abortion law in the nation. They really are angling for Row v Wade. These people are, most likely, biblical fundamentalists (still a majority of white men) who have no clue.

I think what gets under my skin about this and pretty much the entire Republican agenda is that it appears to be driven by fossilized biblical views, making moral judgments based on narrow-minded understandings and just plain ignorance. Men thinking they somehow understand women and can still speak for them, maybe even keep them in their place. It seems less about reverence for life and more about knowing what’s right for everyone because the bible tells them so.

It’s risky, though perhaps convenient, to put all one’s eggs in the bible basket.
