He is aware he just confirmed that he believes in forcing women to bear children against their will, right?
Correct. They’re not even bothering to hide behind the fetal rights agenda anymore.
At least he’s being honest about his motivations for being pro-life.
Pro-children as punishment!
Ugh. If he actually cared about children, rather than just about punishing women* for having sex, he would have never said this.
I was really not expecting Marvel’s Civil War to contain two panels that accurately sum up the major problem with our political system, but there you go.

Shame, shame on the President. Tweeting during a church service! What kind of example is he setting for Sasha and Malia?
The one this morning came from St. John’s, the church across Lafayette Park from the White House, where the first family went this morning on the chilly and overcast day of the public inauguration ceremonies:
“I’m honored and grateful that we have a chance to finish what we started. Our work begins today. Let’s go. -bo”
The president and his family arrived at St. John’s at 8:35 am EST.
The service ended at 9:39.
BO tweeted at 9:25.
The tweets that are supposedly from Obama (as opposed to a member of his team) are all signed “-bo.” So, he can’t blame this one on his staffers.
Today we learned that this is a thing for some people. You know people schedule tweets all the time, right?
Obama just sent me an email too. You’d think he’d be paying attention to Beyonce but no, I’m more important.
Dear Republicans, There are many, many reasons that people don’t like you. One of the reasons is because you’re stupid and lacking in common sense. This is an example of that.
The Right’s complete inability to understand how social media works (“you can SCHEDULE a tweet? inconceivable!”) never ceases to amuse me.
Somewhat unrelated but I only just realized that he signs his tweets —bo because he’s Barack Obama, not because it’s the name of his dog.
Yes, you read that correctly: the GOP is so insensitive that 38 of them refused to sign a treaty on rights for disabled people because it might “violate US sovereignty” or [positively] impact standards for home-schooling disabled children. Or maybe something something abortion something. By the way:
The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities essentially makes the 1990 Americans With Disabilities Act a non-binding international standard. It requires no change to U.S. law.
Some people have sent me Asks questioning why this happened, and this is more or less the explanation. “Uhhhhh it might hurt Christians home-schooling their kids or prevent us from overturning Roe v Wade, so no, no disabilities treaty for anyone.”
The longer I live, the more I become convinced they actually don’t have souls.
