(CNN)The city of Cleveland has filed a claim against the estate of Tamir Rice, the 12-year-old boy killed by a police officer in 2014, for his final ambulance ride.
“The Rice family is disturbed by the city’s behavior. The callousness, insensitivity and poor judgment required for the city to send a bill … is breathtaking,” family attorney Subodh Chandra said. “This adds insult to homicide. Ms. Rice considers this harassment.” MORE
The governors of Virginia, Ohio and Texas are in the news for signing into law bills which require women who want (need) to have an abortion. They believe that believe that these mere women do/could not understand how serious this undertaking is without a doctor, most likely a man, explaining their female bodies to them, reading to them an anti-abortion script and lastly, invading their vaginas with scope to decide whether there is a fetal heartbeat. You have, of course, heard of the transvaginal probe:
INVADING A WOMAN’S BODY AS REQUIRED BY INSENSITIVE LEGISLATORS
Back to the old men in Congress (who fear the “Big C“). If they dared talk to their doctors about the need for a colonoscopy, they would be calmed by the fact that they would be asleep when their anus is invaded by the probe. (I think the women in the pre-ceeding procedure are awake.)
What’s the point of this post? Women – and the men who truly love them – are tired of having the predominantly male government ignore their input and make laws that take control of their bodies with no regard for medical necessity, dignity and the proper role of the state in our progressive society. If men suffer their bodies being penetrated in a private place, maybe they’d think twice before requiring their women to suffer a similar indignity.
