Georgia State Representative Yasmin Neal from the Atlanta suburb of Jonesboro is proposing legislation based on one of the most stupid and illogical arguments I’ve seen in politics of late. It is even more absurd than what I’ve heard out of Maxine Waters, Nancy Pelosi and Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
The Georgia House of Representatives is currently debating an anti-abortion bill that would forbid any abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy. In response to the anti-abortion legislation, Neal has introduced a bill that would make vasectomies illegal except in cases to avert serious health issues or death. Listen to what she says:
I want to know how anyone in their right mind can equate a sterilization process like a vasectomy to having an abortion and terminating a life? Does this woman have any brains or medical knowledge?
There is a huge difference between preventing and ending a pregnancy. A vasectomy would be equivalent to a tubal ligation, which is also known as having the tubes tied. In both cases, the passage for sperm and eggs are blocked and often severed, to prevent either from passing through. They are generally considered to be forms of permanent sterilization.
Having an abortion is totally different and it kills the unborn child and discards it as waste. In most cases, the woman retains the ability to conceive and become pregnant again. The only permanent aspect of abortion is the life that was murdered and can never be restored.
Rep Yasmin Neal’s bill is one of the most ludicrous pieces of legislation and as such should be laughed right off the floor of the Georgia House of Representatives. If I lived in her district, I would start a recall to remove her from office on the grounds of being too incompetent to properly represent the people and using her position to promote her personal radical feminist ideology.
