By a vote of 32 to 13, North Carolina’s Senate on the last full day of its current session passed a motorcycle safety bill that also includes amendments very similar to the abortion legislation which Texas Gov. Rick Perry recently signed into law. The bill calls for a physician to be present when the first drug in a chemical abortion is administered, although follow-up doses can be taken at home. Further, abortion clinics would have to meet safety standards similar to those required of ambulatory surgical centers, and the bill would provide funding for more inspectors.

Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards declared the upgraded safety standards “dangerous and deeply unpopular” and urged Gov. Pat McCrory to follow through on his threat to veto the legislation. Others chose instead to rally around the #MotorcycleVagina hashtag. Why not #MotorcycleAbortion? Because vaginas, duh.

Abortion advocates following the proceedings had settled in for an “all-nighter” similar to the midnight votes that had happened in Texas; however, the Senate passed the bill before 8 p.m. after only an hour of debate.

    I know how about a woman’s choice to walk over to the drugstore & buy protection so you don’t need to commit murder

    • Frank Drebin



    • Rulz

      Contraception isn’t the magical solution the left says it is, but the spirit of your point is not lost on me.

      Abortion is pretty much always murder.

    • Karl Winrich

      -> Begin rant…

      And they have always had this right, so have the men. If you want to party naughty and still want to try and be safe then go get the sh*t yourself.

      That is one part about the so called “war on women” that burns me up, how everybody is always screaming about a women’s right to contraception, but they’ve ALWAYS had the right to use it, just go and buy it! But now that it’s being subsidized by mine (and everybody elses) tax dollars guess what, it just became my business, and I don’t want to know when some girl I don’t even know is having sex because it shouldn’t be any of my business.

      Same could be said about abortion and abortion clinics which are federally funded, that’s MY money and I don’t want it used to commit infanticide.

      End rant <-

      • thtroll

        No contraception is 100%. Our taxes pay crap we don’t agree with.

        • aztectrumpet

          If you really don’t want to have a baby, then not having sex IS 100%.

  • thetawake

    I guess sometimes you don’t have a right to choose not to be a moron.

    Thank you, North Carolina legislators for helping to dredge up the worst offenders so we can laugh at them on Twitter. And, thank you, Twitchy, for putting them all in one neat little bag o’ laughs.

    I think ‘tragically stupid people’ is apropo.

  • Bemani Dog

    Sounds like some Dems voted for it. That’s more than 2/3

  • CR

    Don’t they mean #MotorcycleBabyMurder

    Also, maybe the reason that they included the abortion laws in a motorcycle safety bill is because they didn’t want the angry idiot mob throwing feces and tampons at them and so wanted to try to avoid a massive media circus.

    Plus… irony… the party that forces through ObamaCare in the middle of the night w/o anyone having time to read it is upset about the legislative process used to do something. Ummm…kay

    • Dave

      LOL ummmm….Kay lumberg lol

  • brenda

    So the supporters of abortion try *thinking* that child was you. As much as we support aborting your ideals we support life. Sorry you cannot think about anything other than yourselves. Sad you advocate murder but play you care when actual murder happens. If you don’t like abortion restrictions keep legs closed. Take BC your emotional issues are you’re issue unfortunately your emotional issues kill innocent babies. The fact you are so rabid is the fact in your soul youknow its wrong. Why not show a eexpectant mother facing a abortion a ultrasound? ItS powerful to see that heartbeat. What you advocate and object to is human nature. For that you will answer to no matter how many tampons you wear in your ears or how many feces you throw just shows your mentality and how you devalue life…. no abortion supporter hugs holds gives love to those who had abortion and regrets it.

  • The Penguin

    I love to ride. And I’m not into killing babies. Sounds okay to me.

    • Adela Wagner

      Ride on the back of an old Harley(bought to re-build) from Conn. into NYC with no back rest,no foot pegs, with your legs wrapped around his waist and your arms wrapped around his chest, on a Pillion Pad. Now THAT’s some #motorcyclevagina.

      • The Penguin

        That is.

      • The Penguin

        Can’t relate I guess as I don’t ride on the back.

        • Adela Wagner

          HAHA Lucky man. That was years ago..1970-71, but shall never forget.

          We don’t ride anymore, but loved it.

      • Clete Torres

        I’m guessing.

        I need all of this in my life. . . Milwaukee Vibrators FTW.

          HAHA When I said “loved it” I was talking about RIDING ….yeah, RIDING…that’s the ticket…

      • Jay Stevens

        That is illegal now in most states. Everyone now needs his (or her) own footpegs.

        • Adela Wagner

          Was probably illegal back then too, but that would not have meant anything to the guy I was with at that time. Those east 3rd st. boys are like that 😉

  • Jill

    These are the very same individuals who likely did not question what effective nationalization of the student loan industry had to do with the “Affordable” health care act.

  • mickeyco

    Will somebody tell these fools there is no Constitutional right to abortion ?!!

    • halflight

      Unfortunately, the SCOTUS says there is, because their magic Ivy League law degrees give them the ability to read auras. . . or was that penumbras? Meh, same difference.

      • Stephen L. Hall

        Actually, the Constitutional right was to “privacy” as applied to the doctor/patient relationship regarding abortion decisions. Notably, the Right of Privacy does not appear to extend to our tax records or phone calls or political affiliations.

  • JBDestiny

    How many of these women will *choose* unsanitary conditions and untrained personnel for medical procedures, I wonder?

    • 3seven77

      Apparently there are hundreds of them. Kermit Gosnell had no shortage of “clients”.

    • RememberSekhmet

      For most women, an abortion is a once-in-a-lifetime (or less) event. Especially a late-term abortion. A client is unlikely to come back to that doctor’s office for regular gyno checkups and the like. Since there is relatively little repeat business in general, there is no incentive to make sure conditions in the clinic encourage return visits. Most women who get abortions just want to put the whole abortion experience behind them, and don’t want to think about it enough to worry how sanitary the facility was, if they turned out OK.

  • Clete Torres

    Ah yes: filthy abortion centers staffed by people without proper training are FAR more desirable than clean, sanitary facilities, and medically trained staff.

    I mean, what could possibly go wrong?

    • Bathing Suit Area

      Having a hallway that’s less than five feet across is filthy and unsanitary now?

      • MarcusFenix

        I’ve thought about this since our last, civil exchange on this subject.

        I absolutely overlooked the fact that a 5 foot wide hallway is only a foot, 2 at most, from the average home’s hallway. If we were talking about 15 feet, then yes..we could likely agree that’s a bit over the top, but 5 feet…that’s enough for two people to pass each other and have maybe a foot or so between them.

        The 5 foot issue isn’t one really, when you think about it.

        • Bathing Suit Area

          I’m not suggesting that give foot wide hallways are bad. I’m saying that requiring them for many clinics is unnecessary.

          What exactly is the benefit, or pressing need, behind telling a clinic that administers RU-486 but has four foot eight wide hallways that they need to either start knocking out walls, or shut down? (The latter being suspected as the real intention of the regs in question.)

          • Stephen L. Hall

            Well, to really answer that you’d have to compare it to comparable medical facilities to see what the regulations are regarding their hallways. I suspect that it is not for the administration of pills but sufficient room to roll a gurney with EMTs in the case of an emergency.

          • MarcusFenix

            Stephen, below, has the right idea. The definition of “necessary” might vary, but if you needed to pass a different regulation each time a group wanted to build a clinic, you’d have to make amendments and adjustments. The way I look at it, by making them all have the same regulation, it is simply conformity to current hospital regulations and code.

            Think of it in the same way as to why wheelchair ramps are required on the outside of buildings. People who actually need to use them because they’re handicapped are an incredible minority, but we put them there because they’re still needed by someone. A clinic may spend 90% of their time writing specific prescriptions, but the remainder would need the facility and its services as designated.

          • Bathing Suit Area

            If the idea is to bring all clinic standards in line with hospitals, why single out abortion? Serious dental work has about as much risk as chemical abortion, don’t dentists all need to start widening their hallways?

          • MarcusFenix

            Actually, I do think that should be the case, dependent on the facts of the case. If it’s good enough for one, it’s good enough for something along the same lines.

            At the same time though, trying to compare dental work to destroying a living thing…kind of a bad thing to try and compare. Apples and oranges, in that case.

          • Bathing Suit Area

            Ah, so we drop the pretense that it’s about women’s safety, and admit it’s about opposing abortion now?

          • MarcusFenix

            I don’t function under that pretense, as i suspect there are plenty of others who think the same way.

            Trying to deflect the conversation in that way is just disingenuous and erroneous.

            If i’m agreeing that facilities that perform similar functions should require similar standards, then the comparison of abortion clinics to dental offices I made previously still stands. But, abortion clinics don’t pull teeth, and dentists don’t terminate pregnancies. should not both environments have safe, effective policies and facilities to encompass their work? Of course. But they certainly have very different functions and requirements. Operating in a person’s mouth doesn’t rise to the same risk level (as far as the procedure is concerned, on its face) as a person with a sharp object between your legs, or inserted into your genitals. Lovely mental image, but that’s the truth of it.

            If both have a surgical function, then having regulations that equally require the same thing from both would be a direct benefit to the patients, regardless of which place they are or for whatever reason. Because women are the only ones having abortions doesn’t mean they should have less stringent guidelines, or more unhealthy environments?

            At some point, it is prudent to draw a dividing line between abortions and less serious procedures. It’s the moral equivalence that makes people see one as being just as mundane as the other.

          • RememberSekhmet

            Serious dental work doesn’t cause peritonitis unless the patient doesn’t take his antibiotics. There is also much less risk of hemorrhage. The jaw, minus the carotid artery itself, is far less vascular than the uterus. I would compare an abortion to kidney stone removal in terms of risk, not a dental procedure.

          • gekkobear

            Right, and if someone has a an issue; not being able to get a gurney to the patient is ok.

            Now for places like Oral Surgery clinics, we need those standards. Men might be getting treated there, and we can’t have poor safety standards for them.

            But for places that only ever treat women; skimp on the standards, who cares… they’re only women.

            Opposing my views means you’re part of the war on women… by wanting them to get the same safety requirements any other clinic has.

            No, I don’t know how that works either.

      • RememberSekhmet

        Karnamaya Mongra’s family sure wishes the hallways at Gosnell’s clinic were five feet. That way, the guys on the ambulance could have gotten her on a gurney and saved her life.

      The fine print under the “MY UTERUS MY CHOICE” sigh probably reads: “But I want congress to force other people to pay for my healthcare.”

      F**king hypocrites.

        It’s not in the fine print. It’s on the other sign, “Free Abortion on demand.”

    • R.J. Carter

      Right most is rather… “open.”

    • aztectrumpet

      Of course they want “FREE abortion on demand”

  • DeadBuffalo Blog

    In the pic of the code-pinko broads, check out the biceps on the first one on the left! Hulk’s got nothin’ on her. If she wanted an abortion, the doc could do it easy. She’s so big, he’d just walk in to her uterus.

    Got nervous, checked all 4 bikes, no bs fake uterus found. Good, since the drivers know what causes babies.

  • Tessa I.

    I don’t know about abortion activists, but I do know that if I’m having a potentially dangerous drug administered I want a freaking doctor to be the one doing it. I mean, when I had my wisdom teeth out I didn’t just hand some random guy fifty bucks and a pair of pliers! The money I give my dentist isn’t just paying for a pretty white coat and a nice office with a tropical fishtank–it’s paying for the personal attention of a qualified professional who knows exactly what kind of drugs to give me and what to do once the tooth is out and I’m bleeding all over the place.

    Incidentally, I can’t imagine #keepyourlawsoffmymolars trending. Only here does the left oppose increased regulations. They don’t just want the right to kill unborn children, they want to make it as easy and unregulated as possible. Because there’s no way tighter standards would actually aid those vaginas–excuse me, *women*–they claim to love.

    Kind of reminds me how Walter Freeman envisioned lobotomies as a simple in-office procedure. Surgery as no-frills, quick-fix, same-afternoon cures . . . sure, that ends well.

    These people are insane.

  • World B. Free

    Check out Suzanne Buckley’s twitter page (last tweet above) and have a look at the pic of the cows wearing t-shirts spelling out “SHAME.” The one cow wearing the cape has what looks like a bunch of baby doll body parts hanging off the back.

  • Viola Martini

    Ohmygod, who gets pregnant unintentionally in this day and age! It still baffles me over and over. And if you do get pregnant by accident, why would you wanna wait longer than after you miss your next period to go to a doctor for “the procedure”? What is this whole thing with abortion after the first trimester? Why are we making excuses for the least responsible ones in the society? Why is being irresponsible being celebrated by these moronic women’s groups? And what is wrong with a bill with more safety provisions?

    • MarcusFenix

      Celebrating irresponsible behavior and excuse making are the hallmarks and cornerstones of the liberal agenda.

  • Sua Sponte

    Yes, it’s so appalling to have a bill that makes it safer for women to kill their babies, just appalling…..Next they’ll be wanting doctors to have a license to practice and expect hospitals to be all clean and stuff…The nerve…

  • Stephen L. Hall

    Hypothetical: What would these feminists say if someone proposed a bill which REQUIRED every abortion clinic to be as unsanitary, unsafe and shoddy as Gosnell’s little shop of horrors?

  • keyboard jockey

    Feminist treat women like cows – part of a human herd, women are not allowed to be elevated to “sentient” human being. Given some of the stupid signage, I can see why they have this view of some women. The message is by fixating on sexual organs is that women’s status is “only” that of a breeder. That’s their sole identity. It’s sad really reducing women down to nothing but a vagina, and breeding status. That’s women’s entire social worth in the view of the feminazis.
