The Wilmington City Council has a message for men -- sperm are people, too.

The council for Delaware's largest city passed a resolution by an 8-4 vote Thursday calling on the Delaware legislature, other state legislatures and the U.S. Congress to pass laws granting "personhood" rights to eggs and sperm. The resolution was authored by councilwoman Loretta Walsh as a protest in the current battle over women's health care access.

What next, a open beer is person?

Amazing how the reich-wing wants to see sperm as a life, but let that sperm turn out to be an angry 17 year old kid and its execution without the blink of a eye from the reich.

Ms. Walsh is joking, to point out the ridiculousness of all these stupid contraception laws and other anti-woman crap. Get it now, Queenie?

Big difference. They are for protecting only innocent life. A sperm and its adjoining egg has never killed anyone and thus deserves a chance. The "angry 17 year old" did kill and thus blew his chance. The other party wants to kill innocent life and excuse the guilty. So if we want to discuss hypocrisy, both sides are just as much hypocrites.

Not as long as execution, self-defense, and war are legal.

That already exists. If a criminal causes a woman to miscarry, he is charged with murder, but if a doctor she chose to see causes her to miscarry, it is not only legal, but her right. So it is her thoughts and wishes that are protected.

The resolution is sarcastic. It is explained right there in the subhead.

You're lucky to be let off with just a few nuts icons. You should probably be sterilized.

Do you think the resulting Congressional reapportionments by population will result in more Congresspersons from red or from blue states?
