I Know You Are But What Am I?
Fafblog attempted to extrapolate a ban on the “morning-after pill” to other issues:
So the FDA has decided that the mornin after pill is not gonna be sold over the counter. This is yknow a huge step backwards for women's health and for contraception and the prevention of abortions. But it is a huge step forward for what we at Fafblog like to call the "rights of the unconceived," which is just a few short steps from what we are really lookin forward to which is the rights of the inanimate.There are two problems with this.
- The morning-after pill works after conception.
- Ridiculing a political position by comparing it to the rights of the inanimate has already been done.
UPDATE: James Lileks used a similar idea in his latest Backfence column:
There's something wrong about a card from the dog, and I say that as someone who would have bought such a thing five years ago. It's like a Mother's Day card from a lamp, or the furnace.
