Breaking: NCGOP to define abortion as murder

APEX, NC - Representative Paul Stam told Triangle radio listeners today that the General Assembly will soon take up - and pass - legislation that will define abortion as murder in North Carolina.

"This Thursday, on Valentine's Day, the mighty hand of the Lord is going to strike back against the legions of whores, baby-killers, and fornicators who have ignored His holy commandments," said Stam. "Abortion is not just murder, it's premeditated murder. Those found guilty must be put to death."

Mirroring a proposal now making its way through the Iowa legislature, Stam says his bill will finally put women in their place. "The Bible says women are good for one thing and one thing only. Breeding," said Stam. "That's why my bill is identical to the one introduced by my friend Rob Bacon, a devout conservative Christian serving God in the Corn Hole State.

"Bacon, R-Slater, and eight other Republicans introduced the bill in the Iowa House Wednesday. It would alter the definition of a person in murder cases to “an individual human being, without regard to age of development, from the moment of conception, when a zygote is formed, until natural death.”

“It’s to protect the life of the unborn,” Bacon told the Tribune. “There’s still some of us that believe life begins at conception.”

Those charged with murder, under the bill, would include a mother who takes abortion-inducing drugs or a doctor who performs an abortion. It also grants no exceptions for rape, incest or to protect the life of the mother.

Liberal activists reacted swiftly to the news.

"I predicted this in 2010 when the Tarheel Taliban took over," wrote James Protzman on the BlueNC blog. "People said I was exaggerating, but sadly, I was simply ahead of my time. Defining abortion as murder is the only natural conclusion you can come to if you are a misogynist dick like Paul Stam. And once you come to that conclusion, the next logical step is capital punishment. In Stam's sick world, rapists are doing God's work, and women who have abortions should be electrocuted or given lethal injections."


The line between satire and reality

is non-existent in North Carolina. This story is already swirling around the world ... and the Iowa version is a fact indeed. And we've all seen how ignorance in one state is like a virus, speeding like wildfire throughout the land.

And just to say it, if Stam doesn't introduce this in the current legislation, he's a bigger political coward than even I thought he might be.

Otherwise known as chicken shit.

After McCrory's run-in

with that confused reporter a few days ago, he should have asked himself how a piece of satire could be misconstrued so easily. The answer is (of course) that his party has been perched on the fringe for so long anything is believable.

He should, but he won't, because he owes too many people for the money trail that leads to Raleigh.

Non existent indeed

It is pretty bad that even for half a second I thought this was a real story.

Is this real?

Serious question: Is this real? Am I missing a joke here? Seems as though some of Stam's quotes in this - like the bit about women being for breeding - would be all over the web.

Apologies if I missed the joke...

Satire for now

as noted in the tags, but almost certainly to be making its way through the General Assembly this session.

North Carolina is increasingly taking its lead from breeding grounds of ignorance like Iowa, Kansas, and South Carolina. Don't be surprised.
