Uterus or Brain?: Choice for Zygote Zealots.

Over in the comments after unrepentant old hippie's blogpost regarding a zygote zealot who advocates violence against abortion providers, The Fetus©™ fetishist in question, bayouchild/Jill, offers herself up as "proof" that as Gawd gave women wombs so must they breed.

It's strange, isn't it? Neither my father nor my mother made me feel that I had to choose between using my brain or my uterus. But then, I didn't grow up in a familial environment that supported fundamentalist religious gynophobia.

Thus it was possible for me to choose to give life without having to abandon the ability to reason and the capacity for rational compassion.

It appears that choice was not available for bayouchild since she utters predictable, programmed pro-natalist glurge and fundamentalist Catholic dogma. No need to engage the brain, the default propaganda simply spews out.

It's no wonder that fundamentalist Catholic men, like John "Mr Kicking Abortion's Ass" Pacheco, Italy's Silvio Berlusconi and Pope Benedict prefer women who are certifiably brain-dead but still able to breed.

John Pacheco's wife has a master's degree in science. That doesn't quite fit your narrative.

I particularly like how people like "Jill" aren't content to simply live their lives as incubators, but feel a need to impose that role on everyone else as well.

Her regurgitation of one of Coulter's greatest hits is pretty illustrative of the lack of brainpower at play. Perhaps some of her anger stems from the realization that the odds are steadily increasing that her spawn will eventually come to reject her brand of dogmatic, uncritical, unthinking, sexist zealotry?

John Pacheco's narrative speaks for itself.

He might make an exception for his wife - in fact, I hope for her wellbeing that he does - but his raging gynophobia and religious hallucinations leaves little to the imagination.
