Ohio Women Must Reveal Sex Partners

H/t to Crooks & Liars and Feministing for this under reported bit of chauvinist BS.

Legislators in Ohio have submitted a bill that would require women to get signed consent from the father of the fetus before they could have an abortion. Republican John Adams said,

This is important because there are always two parents and fathers should have a say in the birth or the destruction of that child. I didn’t bring it up to draw attention to myself or to be controversial. In most cases, when a child is born the father has financial responsibility for that child, so he should have a say.”

So essentially the woman no longer has the right to choose, the father does. He gets to make the choice for her. As the church lady would say, now isnt’ that special! But the bill does not stop there.

In cases where the identity of the father is unknown, women would be required to submit a list of possible fathers. The physician would be forced to conduct a paternity test from the provided list and then seek paternal permission to abort.

That’s still not all….

Claiming to not know the father’s identity is not a viable excuse, according to the proposed legislation. Simply put: no father means no abortion...Women would be required to present a police report if they want to “prove” that the pregnancy was a result of rape of incest.

Of course Rep. Adams really does not give one damn about the mothers or the fathers or the fetuses. What he does give a damn about is impressing the ultra right Christian fanatics so they will vote for his sorry ass again.

If there was ever a time for every female and every thinking male to rise up and join forces against an idiot and his vision, this is it.

Men are never going to stop trying to control women. They are never going to stop trying to convince women what they need and what is right for them. It is up to women, who have an enormous number of votes and tremendous consumer power to put an end to this.

I’m quite sure that it was men who created bras. Then padded bras. Then Wonder bras. And they convinced women that these were absolutely ‘must have’ items. And I can’t believe it was a woman who invented the girdle. That had to be a man.

And how did they convince women that they had to have these? Did it have to do with making themselves more attractive…for men? Were they brainwashed to believe that if they didn’t wear such things that they would be marked as loose women? I don’t know. But whatever they did it was certainly effective and successful.

And God, just think about the whole cosmetics industry! And fashion! Heaven forbid that a woman wears the same style two years in a row! Shame on those who would even consider it! After all, how would those huge companies (who are almost exclusively controlled by men) make the soaring profits they do if women decided they didn’t really need all that makeup and the very newest designer jeans.

Women may think that they have made significant progress but I don’t think so. Count the number of female senators and congressmen. Count the number of female mayors, governors and industry CEO’s. Now compare that with the number of college students and the general population. There is no comparison.

I think it’s time for women to tell men to get their greedy minds and grubby hands out of their panties and pocketbooks and definitely out of their bedrooms and doctor’s offices. If they won’t,  women should stop buying their useless crap or get them out of office. Money and votes talk.

    Only religion could persuade women to vote against their own interests. Come to think of it, that’s what religion is all about.

    What if the father wants the child? Does the father have no rights?

    Women do their share of controlling, I’m surprised you missed that!

    What about women who lie and say they’re on birth control but secretly stop using it so they will conceive, against their partners wishes, and breaking their verbal agreement to use birth control. It happens a lot, who’s controlling who here?

    What about the fact that men are paying to support kids that are not their own all over the world, even though the mother claims, or lets them think, the kids are theirs?

    You’ve got a seriously anti-male attitude problem!

  3. Capt Fogg Says:

    Sounds like you have some personal problems you’re trying to make the world pay for. This isn’t about false paternity claims or controlling women or lying women or about whatever your woman did to you.

    If you take a dump on my lawn and fertilize the grass, do you own my lawn? I don’t think so.

    Why do you think you can tell a woman not to abort a pregnancy when you can’t tell her that she must abort it?

    Or maybe I’m wrong and you’re not actually trying to make sense.

    Thanks for the support Cap’n. Sure, there are manipulative lying women out there. But to decide that the rule of law ought to be based on those few, to once again think that just because you are a man, your permission must be sought before the woman decides what to do with her body and the child in it is the height of sexism.

    I love guys that blame women, call them liars, deceptive, manipulative etc, as they are cleaning off their dicks and pulling up their pants. If you don’t want to take those chances then don’t do the deed! As Cap’n points out, you fertilized the egg INSIDE HER BODY and now she has to deal with it 24/7 while you probably go out, get drunk and screw someone else.

    do women get custody over the child 99.9% of the time in the united states just like they do in britain? if they do, then we still wont be beaten… britain can still top your united states policies by nicely paying for her housing arrangement and heck, why not throw in some extra cash for her extra strong lager and cider drinking habits.

    oh yeah and lets not forget the father who’ll be paying maintenance to her for the rest of his days while he sleeps in a one room apartment somewhere.

  6. Capt Fogg Says:

    Um – the argument was that a man should be able to forbid a woman to have an abortion, not to allow him to force her to abort. You wouldn’t want to permit someone to force you into a vasectomy, now would you?

    Not only is your paranoid misogyny a bit creepy, it’s got nothing to do with the argument. I hate to suggest anything so conventional, but perhaps you should choose whom you sleep with carefully and (I hate to even bring it up) perhaps save it for your wife.

  7. Mike Says:

    Whew, forbid=force, and protecting a child’s life = telling a women what to do with her body. That’s some mean logic you guys have got going here. Killing an unborn child = killing a child = murder in my book, plain an simple. But I doubt either side will convince the other so I’ll go away and let you have your Mad blog.

    You never know which posts will generate the most interest and comments. Abortion is certainly a subject that will. Yes, Mike, to forbid a woman to have an abortion does indeed equal forcing her to carry it to term. I agree with you that abortion is a very sensitive and emotional dilemma, mostly for the mother. I know from personal experience the lasting impact it can have. But the fact is, in America women have the right to an abortion. That is the law. Federal law. And that law is not qualified by saying that fathers make the decision.
    I know this. Women will continue to get abortions without anyone elses permission no matter what the law is.

    Mark, nice to hear from you. It’s the same in America. My ex is in the nice home I bought and I ended up with attorney bills. But, I did that to avoid EVER having to pay her a dime of support and now that I live in Singapore, that was worth it.

    Thanks for the comments and followup Cap’n and Mike.
