You are not entitled to your own facts

Calling the can of whup-ass Hillary Clinton opened on their TheoCon butts 'a tempest in a teapot', Lawrence Loose Cannon went into the spin-and-lie cycle.
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was expressing her personal opinion when she criticized Canada's maternal health initiative, not the policy of the Obama administration, Foreign Affairs Minister Lawrence Cannon said Sunday.

"Mrs. Clinton expressed not her government's position; she expressed her personal point of view … her personal opinion," Cannon told CTV's Question Period.

That is a lie. Barack Obama rescinded the Mexico City Policy, or Global Gag Rule, on his second day in office. Pretty high priority, eh?

But with all that sciencey-facty stuff about yes indeedy, abortion does save women's lives whipping around, he was forced to veer into the backtrack cycle.
But in the wake of Clinton's criticism of the Canadian initiative, a key foreign policy program for the Conservative government going into this summer's G8 summit, Cannon acknowledged that the Canadian plan may have to be amended.


Hear that, so-cons? The Harper Conservatives are all 'no freakin' way are we opening the abortion debate here in Canada where we've been stringing those fundy fetus fetishists along for years, but yeah sure if it gets us a seat on the UN Security Council we'll go along with funding family planning and abortion'.

Got that? No abortion debate in Canada. But okey-dokey to abortion when it suits their purposes.

Oh. Wait. That's the same thing, isn't it?

I do agree with this type of birth control. Not a thing we need to be doing.

Anonymous, we have been funding the full range of family planning, including abortion where it is legal, for the past 30 years. Conservative and Liberal governments.

And abortion, while of course it is a form of birth control, is often -- especially in the Third World -- medically necessary/urgent, as in, saving women's lives or health.

And, if you are against abortion, aren't you insulted by the way the HarperCons are playing you?

We can be certain that this is a sign of things to come, okay not certain, Because we always have to think about - Is it just coincidence that those who criminalize abortion are overwhelmingly fat white men (with voluminous robes)? If womenz had uteruses like vicegrips and missile strength rocket launchers, with which to expel what they don't want, would abortion even be discussed? Would anyone even know if anything was expelled?.. if we had shooter uters? Not likely. In fact we wouldn't even need insurance, let alone, sex starved assholy men who dominate abortion law, always, always, wanting to punish us for what? having sex with MEN who didn't use condoms or male birth control? Fuck 'em, we will always be right about this, always.
Hey maybe menz would prefer women to have 2 uteruses, 2 vaginas and 2 cervixes. Someday, in the future, prolly that can be handled. And for all the menz who want to tell us what to do with our bodies, you 2 can also have 2 sets of balls and 2 woodies.

When men can have babies, abortion will never be questioned. Old song, but truest in human history.
