Is every "life" precious?
“P for Patriarchy”
Patricks considers himself a feminist, so he’s probably mad as all hell about certain states trying to further regulate or even outlaw abortion.
Even yesterday, Tuesday October 24th, the U.S. appeals court rejected Trump’s anti-abortion push for undocumented Americans.
The comments on Patrick’s tweets contain many people trying to find holes in his scenario or twisting the scenario around… but none providing a straight answer.
David L Eggleston (@dlore2177) writes: “Healthy child or 90 year old on life support who do you save. By your logic it should be legal to kill every 90 year old on life support.”
Larry P (@LarrytheGM) who responded: “In analogy you should have in the other corner 1000 women who have just been fertilized. Abortion rips embryo from designed environment”
Colin Marc (@colinmarc): “Hi, pro-choice here, but this is ridiculous. first of all, what if A and B are a 1-month pregnant woman and a non-pregnant woman?”
