The U.S. Senate passes a child rapist and incest protection act. And Incest-Protectionist-In-Chief Bush says he’ll sign it. God save abused girls!

Good old U.S. Senate! In the name of “parental rights” they’re making it easier for incestuous child abusers and others to get away with raping little girls.

They’re calling it the “Child Custody Protection Act.” It ought to be called “The Rapists’ and Incestuous Relatives Protection Act.”

The new law would make it a crime to help under-age girls cross state lines to escape parental notification laws.

So if you’re say, a 14 year-old who was raped and sodomized by her father and now you’re pregnant, you’ll have to go to the bastard and get his permission to get an abortion. Know what you’re likely to get for that?

Threats is what. A blackened eye from your old man, maybe. And for sure raped and sodomized again.

What about your mom? Well, she stood by and somehow overlooked what dear old dad was doing. Maybe because she’s terrified of him, too. So don’t expect much help there.

Until now, if you lived in a state that prohibits an abortion without parental consent, you might be able to go to a sympathetic and helpful grandparents for the money to cross state lines to abort this product of child rape.

But now if Grandma helps, Grandma’s going to the pokey.

President Bush said, “transporting minors across state lines to bypass parental consent laws regarding abortion undermines state law and jeopardizes the lives of young women.”

Oh yeah? How is her life jeopardized by an abortion without parental consent compared to an abortion with parental consent?

It’s all political baloney created to appeal to the Lunatic Right. 51 Republicans threw responsible morality to the wind to vote for this law. So to my disgust did 14 morally-challenged Democrats. It’s enough to make you puke.

And if you want to comment on this abortion of justice, I welcome your thoughts. Either directly on this blog, or by writing a letter to the editor at: etoainshrd@aol.com

From time to time I publishers letters to the editor sent to me at etoainshrd@aol.com. Here's one of 'em:

DEAR CRANK,

...On the other hand, can you possibly imagine either a father who impregnated his daughter or her mother doing anything but encouraging the child to have an abortion? Surely, they wouldn't want the stigma/evidence of the rape to be a living person. ...Unless they claimed their daughter was impregnated by someone else. But DNA would likely prove the pregnancy was produced within the family.

...Which is not to say I support the legislation.

I dunno; whatdaya think?

RICHARD IN NEW YORK

Dear Richard,

Here's what I think. I think any relative crazy enough to commit rape, and incestuous rape at that, is not rational or thinking clearly.

Kids need the protection of a place where they can go and have the consequences of this kind of catastrophe solved.

Returning a terrified teenager to an enraged parent ought to be just as big a crime as the rape itself.

Dear Richard,

I think any bastard crazy enough to rape his own daughter/sister/cousin isn't thinking as rationally as you'd like him to think.

He might beat the crap out of her just because he's mad she's pregnant.

Here's another letter to the editor from Buce at Underbelly-Buce.blogspot.com:

"Old time republicans (Baarry Goldwater, Alan Simpson) were not anti abortion. A gent got a girl in trouble, a gent paid for the scrape. Of course, it saved a lot of embarrassment.

"Vaguely related: you will recall that Grover Cleveland was accused of fathering an illegitimate child. One version I hear is that any of half a dozen Buffalo swells could have been the father. But Cleveland took the hit because he was the only one in the gang that wasn't already married.

"Lot of evidence that the prime supporters of abortion rights are--surprise!--21-year-old guys in dirty tee shirts with boxes of Winchell's donuts."

THE CRANK REPLIES:
You cannot fool me, Buce. I have figured you out. You are an adman and your letter-to-the-editor is obviously a product placement for a brand of donuts.
