Inspired by Anti-Choice Politicians Set Their TRAP (BlogforChoice 9/02/10), Abortion clinics in Virginia will face new regulations (Washington Post 2/25/11), and New Virginia Regulations Could Shut Down Most Abortion Clinics (Care2 2/27/11).
“We support these regulations, and it’s the first push to stop the legalization of killing babies.” – VA anti-abortion rightist Susan Hays
Republicans hate regulations
Because they impose unnecessary burdens,
Except when they like regulations
Because they impose unnecessary burdens.
I guess regulations are great
As long as you’re the one that the regulations create.
And, if you’ve got government control,
You can even lie about your real regulatory goal.
Of course, they have to do that, or their ongoing crusade
Would be declared unconstitutional under Roe v. Wade.
But that’s OK – the end justifies the means,
Which is what being Republican means.
