WTF?!? The Devil ?!?

What a crazy world we’re living in!

Please read this article from yesterday’s NYT magazine—and while you do, keep in mind that this woman is only slightly more chock full o’ kookitude than some US policymakers:

Julia Regina de Cardenal runs the Yes to Life Foundation in San Salvador, which provides prenatal care and job training to poor pregnant women. She was a key advocate for the passage of the ban. She argued that the existing law's exception for the life of the mother was outdated. As she explained to me, "There does not exist any case in which the life of the mother would be in danger, because technology has advanced so far." De Cardenal was particularly vehement in responding in print to her opponents. As she wrote in one Salvadoran newspaper column in 1997, "The Devil, tireless Prince of Lies, has tried and will continue to try to change our laws in order to kill our babies."

Hmm…I wonder if Bill Napoli read this article. Remember Bill? He’s the sexist asshat who said that sodomized religious virgins might—just might—be legally able to terminate their pregnancies in the great state of South Dakota. But wait—sodomy doesn’t result in pregnancy, does it? No, unless—of course!—the devil supernaturally intervenes and makes it happen! Did you think of that, Bill? Maybe the devil is trying to trick you into helping him kill precious little sodomy babies!

Actually, if a woman was sodomized, some of the semen could find it's way into the vagina. Someone I know of became impregnated without any actual intercourse, and it must have been due to sexual activity that involved an ejaculation but no intercourse.

HMMMM...Who could say such things, hmmmm... I wonder, could it be (Church Lady Sound Effect)THE DEVIL?

Yea, poverty in the third world and war around the globe isn't emough for THE DEVIL - he's worried about killing a potential HB for an already (presumably voting) HB......

Good one, Penny!
And Blitz: Oral sex is a form of sodomy, too, but as Anonymous said, you’re missing the point here. Religion-based law is antithetical to democracy. I mean, what’s next? Owning slaves, stoning disobedient children, and killing “witches” are just a few things that are deemed acceptable in scripture.
