Progressive Group "Burnt Orange:" Dudes Should Oppose Texas' Late-Term Abortion Ban In Order To Keep Their Supply of Casual Sex Comin'

Well, let's just get it on the table.

Points for honesty?

Forcing women to adhere to the anti-choice attitudes of state legislators forces men to do the same, and will have serious consequences both on men's lives and lifestyles.

....

Your sex life is at stake. Can you think of anything that kills the vibe faster than a woman fearing a back-alley abortion? Making abortion essentially inaccessible in Texas will add an anxiety to sex that will drastically undercut its joys. And don't be surprised if casual sex outside of relationships becomes far more difficult to come by.

Let's see if I can follow this logic.

The women in question -- those who'll be closing up the Tookie Shop -- are simultaneously carefree enough to not generally care about the prospect of pregnancy (let alone STDs) but are concerned that if they do get pregnant, they will have only just short of five months to schedule an abortion?

Let's work out the math here. A woman suspects she's pregnant at the first skipped period, which comes within 1-4 weeks after sex, depending on when in her cycle she got pregnant. Even if her first skipped period isn't enough to give her a big alert, her second one must be; that would be 5-8 weeks in.

Let's say she just says "Ah, whatev's, let's take a wait and see attitude." Now the third skipped period comes between 9 and 12 weeks. At this point, she knows she's pregnant (or can ascertain this by buying a off-the-rack pregnancy test at any drug store); she now has a minimum of 8 and maximum of 11 weeks to decide if she should have an abortion.

Mind you, narrow window of two-to-two-and-a-half-months comes after the third missed period.

Now, there are two things I gather from the protest against this bill:

Only giving a woman 2 to 2 1/2 months to decide to terminate after her third missed period is monstrous and is a form of sexual slavery; and,

Dudes won't get sex because if women think "Oh shit I'll only have 60 to 80 days to schedule an abortion after my third skipped period, sex is now so risky I'll just have to join a convent."

Okay whatever I guess.

I haven't heard of such a War on Women since some people said Sandra Fluke could pony up her own $4 per month for birth control pills.



Andy suggested Limp Bizkit's "I Did It All For the Nookie" but I don't really like that song.
