Wednesday on MSNBC’s The ReidOut, hateful racist Joy Reid, who appears so regularly at Discover the Networks she deserves her own daily slot, claimed ridiculously that the lawyers defending the Mississippi law banning abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy were making the argument “that a woman is essentially a vessel whose only purpose is to give birth.”
Reid said, “Mississippi’s defense of their 15-week abortion law makes a case that’s truly bizarre, arguing that things are different than they were back in the ’70s. That ‘Today, adoption is acceptable, and on a wide scale women attain both professional success and a rich family life.’ So why can’t we just force poor women and rape victims to bring fetuses to term? Can they not just leave the babies at the doorstep of a firehouse and get back to the office?”
She added, “To say it is okay to ban abortions in the poorest state with one in five women, I believe… are not insured, to say it is fine, make them carry the baby to term, they can leave it at the firehouse when they are done, it is so dismissive of everything pregnancy is about that it was shocking to me.”
Reid concluded, “They are making the argument that a woman is essentially a vessel whose only purpose is to give birth. And that a woman has no other value or separate rights. Her job is to carry this, this being, that is it. That’s what you are supposed to do.”
This is the kind of patently false demagoguery that passes for insightful political commentary among the propagandists in our leftist media.
