    It is ridiculously extreme. Bama does not take care of the parents and children it has.

    I noticed yesterday there were like 240 comments (of course many were by a certain troll in his manic phase—and I honestly sympathize for him: neither physical illnesses nor psychological illnesses are laughing matters.). (This doesn’t excuse its George Santos level of lying, of course.) I’ve followed Clay Jones for years (he is my favorite active political cartoonist) but I can’t recall anything close to that many comments on one toon.

    As for the toon itself: embryos, frozen or not, can’t be seen without a microscope. Nobody denies that both sperm and egg are alive and therefore an embryo is alive. Is it a person? For almost all of human history the answer would be "no ". For almost all of human history fetuses would not qualify as persons. Until they are viable—and, yes, viability with modern medical science occurs earlier and earlier in a pregnancy. No easy answers but we do know that Alabama judges tend to be childish backward and primitive.

    Next target…. IVF.,.no, really…they are claiming that children born with the help of IVF procedures shouldn’t exist…hhmm?..…what do they expect will happen to all those fertilized ovum?…

    There should be a law against uneducated lawmakers practicing medicine.

    The Repubs are off the rails. They all need to be committed into mental health institutions, not be making policy.

    That would only be murder if the egg is fertilized.

    Though give them time. I’m sure they’re working up to a requirement that NO human egg go unfertilized, and then unborn. Masturbation will still be legal though, because it’s always men who make up these things.

    The Alabama Supreme Court is guilty of counting the children before they’re hatched.

    Bad analogy, this is an area where Ted Rall nailed it. The fetus is life, the zygote is life; the woman has the right to abort. Too often people try to avoid the obvious to avoid the tough questions……………………be tough and own our decisions.

    The Alabama judge has ensured the ruling will be overturned on appeal by citing Biblical law in it.

    Perhaps Alabama wants to count frozen embryos as residents, to get more Federal aid? They’ll have to name the little critters and get them SSI numbers first.

    One of the trolls says former Virginia Governor Ralph Northam was in favor of after-birth abortion. The other troll says a “quick search is all it takes” to prove it’s true. No. A quick search is all it takes to prove that our trolls, once again, are lying.

    In a radio interview, Northam said, “When we talk about third-trimester abortions … it’s done in cases where there may be severe deformities, there may be a fetus that is non-viable,” Northam said. “If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen. The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.”

    He was talking about cases with severe deformities. You trolls should know something about that.

    And thank you to the troll who educated us that eggs you purchase in the grocery store won’t hatch. What a big brain you must have. Also, Metaphor: is a figure of speech in which a word or phrase is applied to an object or action to which it is not literally applicable.

    A quick search can show you the definition of “literally,” Mr. Science.

    If embryos are considered people, let’s count them as votes for Biden in November.

    I don’t think they’d vote for the other party who hates them

    This, and other attacks on women’s rights across the country (added to the fact that a majority of people hate Trump), is why Republicans are sailing into disaster this November.

    Judges (and politicians) with zero understanding of science are laughable, yes, but also dangerous. In any event, people should never confuse a palm reader with a hand specialist.

    An embryo, “an unborn or unhatched offspring in the process of development, in particular a human offspring during the period from approximately the second to the eighth week after fertilization (after which it is usually termed a fetus)”

    Until then, it’s just an unfertilized egg.
