I knew full well that when I said I was gonna step back from gender for a bit that gender discourse would not pause until I returned. So I'm gonna come back from my seclusion for just a bit to say something.
Have to say I really don't like the idea of cutting off taxpayer funding for abortion. Needless to say there are good reasons to justify it and I just don't think its the will of the people to cut off that funding nor do I think they are listening to the people.
So no I do not support HR3.
(However I do have one other thing to say. I'm sure it will be tempting to pull out the "men don't get to have a say in abortion" argument. Bear in mind that this is not just about abortion rights but a matter of using tax payer money for abortion. And the last time I checked while not having a uterus men pay taxes too. So that argument is going to come off sounding like they shouldn't have a say in where the tax money that they pay goes. So while a man may have no business in whether or not a woman should or can get an abortion you're fooling yourself if you think you can use his gender to shut him out of the conversation of whether or not the tax money he pays, just like you do, goes towards them.)
