Tony Tinderholt is a Republican member House Of Representatives from Texas.
He also wants to not only throw women in jail who have had abortions, but he wants to take away their voting rights.
This man makes my skin crawl. Not only does he want to set us back to pre Roe V. Wade days, he also wants to take us back to the 19th century.
What he forgets (and so does everyone else who is anti-abortion), is that sex, whether for pleasure or for procreation requires two people. If a couple has sex without protection, finds themselves pregnant and the woman chooses to have an abortion, why must only the woman suffer? It was the man’s sperm that met the woman’s egg, therefore he must suffer the consequences as well. While Mr. Tinderholt also proposes in the law to punish men whose partners/spouses have had abortions, he still needs to get his head out of the clouds.
Would he deny an abortion to a sixteen year old who stupidly had sex without protection and whose life will be forever changed if she chooses to become a mother? Would he really add another case to child services workload by forcing a mother who is already financially strapped and relies on government assistance to get by? Would he be so cold to force a rape or incest victim to carry her attacker’s child and raise it as if it as if the child came out a healthy, loving relationship?
This mas has no heart and needs to come back to Earth.
