    GOP Candidate: Ankle Monitors for Pregnant Women

    YouTube

    For those who believe that nobody thinks this way.....

    I wonder how he thinks that anyone would know which women are in the early weeks of pregnancy? Women don't need a doctor anymore to know if they are pregnant - drug store pregnancy tests are very reliable. And you can get drugs to induce a miscarriage via mail or on the black market.

    Or stopping women at state borders? Airports, Mex/CAN borders? Asking for their 'medical' papers? "Papers please!"

    If women dont want a pregnancy/child, they no longer even need to seek a Dr to confirm it, so then any actions they take after that would not register them with "the authorities!" They would just hide their state and go have it taken care of. Or take the pills.

    That is why abortion is constitutional

    The government would have to engage in unreasonable search and seizures to enforce an abortion ban.

    A myriad of Constitutional violations actually. But yes.

    Well, bless his heart.

    Perhaps he needs an ankle monitor to warn us if he every steps out of his mental health care facility.

    It's hard to believe a man in the 21st century just said that. Then again it was unbelievable when Indiana Senate candidate Mourdock said, "rape was just another way God started a new life"

    It appears he was playing devil's advocate and my guess, based on the limited context I can find within the video, was that the general point is actually about guns. The argument being along of the lines of using an absurdity to point out some other absurdity.

    I suspect very few people think putting tracking devices on women is a good idea.

    That asswipe does not understand that The Handmaid's Tale was supposed to be a warning, not an instruction guide.

    I just finished reading the sequel, written 35 yrs later (but not "occurring" 35 yrs later).

    Good book, interesting fleshing out of Gilead, but the ending was a let down after the build up.

    I haven't read the books, but I have seen the tv series and the movie - scary stuff.
