ACLU could sue over license plate
Abortion advocates in Virginia want to counter the "Choose Life" plates with their own plates, to read either "Trust Women" or "Respect Choice".
I'm for free speech. Go for it.
Though those are a couple of lame slogans.
"Trust Women". Yeah. That'll really go over with people who trusted women and paid dearly for it. Just because you have two X chromosomes doesn't make you automatically trustworthy. Women can back-stab co-workers, key people's cars, cheat on their spouses, shoplift, and commit other acts that prove that the individuals in question, regardless of their plumbing, aren't trustworthy. If women were uniformly trustworthy, there'd be no women's prisons. No need for paternity tests. And NO ABORTION CLINICS. The very fact that abortion exists as a practice is proof that plenty of women simply can't be trusted.
"Respect Choice" is equally lame. WHAT choice do they want us to respect? We all know it's the choice to abort, but it's deliberately vague. Is "choice" in and of itself really so respectworthy? How about the choice to drive drunk? To vandalize a city park? To leave their cell phones on in movie theaters? To steal widows' pension checks? EVERY EVIL THING EVER DONE IS A CHOICE. Choice is, therefore, not an inherently good thing. It's WHAT gets chosen that determines how much respect a choice deserves. And if people never made choices that were unworthy of respect, people wouldn't choose to have sex in untenable situations. They'd not choose to be careless with contraception. They'd not choose to kill their offspring. If all people made choices that deserved respect, there would be NO ABORTION CLINICS. The very existence of abortion as a practice proves that people make stupid, irresponsible, and/or evil choices.
A movement that is in and of itself proof that some women can't be trusted and that lots of choices are bad choices is being ironic, to say the least, in picking "Trust Women" and "Respect Choice" as slogans.
But go ahead. Put your illogic on your car. It's a free country.
