    No, Abortion Isn’t Used as Birth Control – Male Blogger Worries Casual Sex in Texas Will Be Harder to Come By 

    Yes, someone really made the claim that men in Texas need to care about the abortion bill in Texas because of casual sex. 

     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.

    Well if that isn’t a reason to keep abortions beyond five months legal, I don’t know what is.  I suppose that he can continue to make the argument that wanting abortions to be safe and being against basic safety procedures such as doctors having hospital privileges in a hospital within a 30 mile radius is also keep him from getting some.  

     You want to decide when and if to have kids. This bill will force thousands of Texas men into unplanned fatherhood by making it impossible for women to access an abortion in the event of an unplanned pregnancy. Even if you want to have kids, you probably don’t want an accident to make you a father before you’re psychologically ready and able to care for a child. If you don’t want kids, you don’t want the narrow, personal views of politicians in the state government to force you to have them.

    I guess it is impossible to ask someone to show a little self control or may be wear a condom.  That wouldn’t help him from getting a little somethin’ somethin’ when the mood strikes.  Heaven forbid men actually realize that their actions have consequences.  We wouldn’t want that to happen now would we?  

     Again, no mention of the life created, just about what is easy and convenient for adults involved.  Why should the risk of creating another human life get in the way of having a good time.  

     Almost half of all pregnancies are unplanned and unintended. Of those, over 40% currently end in abortion. What happens to those 40% if this law passes? Are you willing to roll the dice with your girlfriend’s health and safety?

    Again, let me get this straight, ensuring that all abortion clinics in Texas are close to hospital and have standards of cleanliness is risking their health and safety?  

    The world is just plum crazy, up is down, and black is white.

    The Brave New World of Having Babies – Woman Steals Sperm from Condoms, Goes to Clinic, Sues for Child Support 

    A Texas exotic dancer has 4-year-old twins.  She became pregnant around the time that a relationship with her then boyfriend was coming to an end.  The man, Joseph Pressil, says he was surprised when she told him she was pregnant because they always used condoms.  Not so fast there Joseph.  Apparently you weren’t dumping your sperm down the toilet.  You gave her the chance to hide your little swimmers, then rush them over to the fertility clinic.

    That’s right.  She kept the sperm and used it during IVF treatments.  The Clinic never bothered to check where the sperm was coming from and if she had permission to use it.  The IVF treatment obviously took.  Pressil has taken responsibility for his actions and has joint custody of the kids.  But, he has decided to file a lawsuit against the fertility clinic for using his sperm without his permission.

    While I would like to think that this is a rare occurrence, but how do we know?  I mean many women out there put off having children to concentrate on their careers.  The longer you wait, the harder it becomes to get pregnant the natural way.  Hence the multi dollar business of fertility clinics.

    I am not going to try to put down people who desperately want children and can’t seem to get there the “natural” way.  I have been in that position myself and believe me, it is horrible and heartbreaking.  But doesn’t this clinic have some sort of responsibility to find out where this sperm comes from?  Don’t they require a signature from the man at the very least?

    Can anyone just walk in off the street with vial full of sperm and say hey, get me pregnant.  This just furthers my belief that as a society we have taken away rights from men when it comes to “reproductive rights”.  All the talk goes to the woman’s side.  She can kill her child at will with no input from the father of the child, and apparently you can go get yourself knocked up without speaking to him either.  Do men have any rights in this process anymore?

    We wonder why society more and more views men as nothing more than sperm donors; marriage is on the decline and single parenthood is on the rise.  I guess what is good for the children is a just a secondary thing.  Ain’t no thing I guess.

    I hope he gets millions and puts this clinic out of business.

      Agree! And it was deceptive and underhanded by the woman. However, he shouldn’t have been having sex with her anyway. If we do it God’s way……………….

    The Clock is Ticking for Humberto Leal 

    All eyes are on Texas today as the clock is ticking for Humberto Leal.  I posted on his case here, prompted by this post at Pecan Corner.

    As it sits right now, Leal could be executed any time after 6 p.m. unless Gov. Rick Perry issues a stay.  That looks unlikely, but you never know:

    “Texas is not bound by a foreign court’s ruling,” Katherine Cesinger, press secretary for Gov. Perry’s office, said in a statement. “The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in 2008 that the treaty was not binding on the states and that the president does not have the authority to order states to review cases of the then 51 foreign nationals on death row in the U.S.”

    “The treaty” to which she refers is the 1963 United Nations enforced Viennea Convention on Consular Relations.

    “Leal’s argument is nothing but a transparent attempt to evade his impending punishment,” Stephen Hoffman, an assistant attorney general for the state of Texas, said in a brief to Supreme Court, according to AP.

    I could be wrong, but I don’t see Rick Perry caving on this.

    Ah, the simple life 

    WaPo via Weekly Standard:

    “I’m enjoying the run when something catches my eye and it’s this coyote. I know he knows I’m there. He never looks at me, he is laser-locked on that dog,” [Gov. Rick] Perry said.

    “I holler and the coyote stopped. I holler again. By this time I had taken my weapon out and charged it. It is now staring dead at me. Either me or the dog are in imminent danger. I did the appropriate thing and sent it to where coyotes go,” he said.

    Perry said the laser-pointer helped make a quick, clean kill.

    “It was not in a lot of pain,” he said. “It pretty much went down at that particular juncture.”

    Texas state law allows people to shoot coyotes that are threatening livestock or domestic animals. The dog was unharmed, Perry said.

    Perry’s security detail was not required to file a report about the governor discharging a weapon, said Department of Public Safety spokeswoman Tela Mange.

    “People shoot coyotes all the time, snakes all the time,” Mange said. “We don’t write reports.”

    The governor left the coyote where it fell.

    “He became mulch,” Perry said.

    Don’t mess with Texas, where stultifying bureaucracies and political correctness have yet to dominate practical reality.
