That was close.
HB 1326, aka ‘Politicians against baby murder and for hot pancakes’ was vetoed by Gov. Henry last night. This morning the House voted to override the veto 68-26… But the override only got 26 votes in the Senate. They needed 32.
So us evil Nazi scientists can officially “KILL TEH BAAAAABBYS!” in OK, and I wont be getting a misdemeanor for infanticide this year.
However the Christbots in OK are now having seizures, which has cheered me up immensely.
Lisa Billy is concerned that scientists are now going to roam dark alleys, preying on ‘poor minority women’ to get their eggs for money.
Ignoring the fact she just accused the scientific community of being racist predators, she really thinks this is how scientists think:
1. Get eggs from poor women.
2. Fertilize said eggs.
3. Kill resulting babby.
Id also just like to note how Mz Billy is just certain scientists will prey on minority women… minority women like HER! Why, shes a Native American! Yeah, white, brown hair, brown eyes… Boy, I bet she has to deal with a LOT of racism in her every day life! And you can tell she is really in touch with her Native American ancestors by the way she worships the god of the people who slaughtered her ancestors. *HIGH-FIVE* Mz Billy! I bet your ancestors would be real proud of you.
Randy Brogdon is simply IRATE at how Gov. Henry gained the votes he needed in the Senate: LOBBYING!
But you didnt hear who did the lobbying yet! You know who did it? Businessmen/women!!
He says the veto is an affront to the pro-life movement, and was sustained partly because of lobbying efforts by both the Tulsa and Oklahoma City Chambers of Commerce.
“I think there are plenty of opportunities for the chamber to bring businesses to Oklahoma that does not involve taking innocent human life,” said Republican Senator Randy Brogdon of Owasso.
“And then, you have the business chamber of commerce come in and say I don’t care if it’s legal, can me make any money? I just think it’s a ludicrous position and I was astounded,” said Ray Thomas of TPI Billing.
So once again we get that amazing killing babies–>PROFIT! logic, coupled with Republicans bitching about businesses and the free market.
So, businesses doing things like dumping chemicals into our air and water is fine. Letting ‘the market’ regulate heath care standards is fine. The current economic crisis is fine.
But the Tulsa and OKC chamber of commerce being irritated at the ‘DONT KEEEL BABBYS’ bill after they have hung a lot of their $$$ hopes on the success of OK universities, OMRF, Research Park, etc… HOW DARE A BUSINESS PERSON SICK THEIR NOSE IN SUCH MATTERS!!
Assholes. Hypocritical, self-righteous, ignorant assholes.
