Attempted Gotcha Gone Wrong

A resolution has been reached in the case of the pregnant Texas teen suing her parents who were allegedly pressuring her to abort.

To the surprise of absolutely no one, the judge ruled in the girl's favour.

But I'm not sure it's the propaganda victory the fetus fetishists envisioned.

They obviously thought they were being oh so clever in using Roe v. Wade in yet another braindead attempted gotcha.

But look what they wind up saying.
“This is a tremendous victory, and another life has been saved,” said TCDL (Texas Center for Defense of Life) attorney and President Greg Terra. “Our victory today stands for the principle that ‘choice’ goes both ways. Under Roe v. Wade and post-Roe cases, a teenage girl has the absolute legal right to choose life, even over the strong objections, pressure, and punishments of her parents.”
Yes, indeedy, as sane people have known all along, choice does go both ways.

And here I thought Roe v Wade made abortions mandatory. Silly me!

I think you should make extra note of this phrase for future use:

"a teenage girl has the absolute legal right to choose"

From an anti-choice group. Very nice. Put that in big bold print.

Excellent idea, Sixth. I go now to tweet it at one of the most obnoxious fetus fetishists.

I see Sixth Estate had the same idea I was going to suggest, it never ceases to amaze me how so many people can be so blind to anything outside their own preconceptions, and this from a man whose favourite expression is never underestimate the power of human stupidity. Thanks for blogging about it.
