[su_right_ad]Next thing you know they’ll be given guns.

In the aftermath of a high-profile legal battle over a brain-dead woman who was kept on life support against her family’s wishes because she was pregnant, one Texas lawmaker is readying a bill that would re-open the contentious debate.

According to the Dallas Morning News, a Republican lawmaker is preparing to introduce a piece of legislation that would appoint legal representation for fetuses in future disputes over whether pregnant women should remain hooked up to life support. State Rep. Matt Krause (R) believes that will allow a judge to hear both sides of the issue before making a decision about what to do.

“You’ll hear what the family wants, and you’ll also give the pre-born child a chance to have a voice in court at that same time,” Krause told the Dallas Morning News.

Get that? Women no longer carry fetuses. They carry the “pre-born.”

    When that “pre-born child” can actually talk, then it can have a voice in court; its own voice, not that of some RWNJ, anti-choice jerk.

    The self designated “Party of Stupid” extends its reach into an unexplored realm beyond it.

      … extends its reach into an unexplored realm
      Which could actually work.

        Ha! Good one!

    this has gotten way beyond out of control. this is just one of the reasons why the GOP will continue to fail. coming from the party of “we don’t want big government.”

      Not in Texas…

    Oh, good.

    More wasted tax payer money.

    • tiredoftea February 9th, 2015 at 3:01 pm

      Only for Texans!

      • OldLefty February 9th, 2015 at 4:35 pm

        That’s true.

    How to say this, Fuck you Matt Krause and the state of Texas.

    • whatthe46 February 9th, 2015 at 3:35 pm

      i think you said it pretty well.

  6. Bunya February 9th, 2015 at 3:19 pm

    What’s next? Throwing all those young girls in jail who deliberately killed a potential zygote by not getting pregnant? If that sounds stupid, that may well be the next course of action in an ass backwards state such as Texas. I’m beginning to think these politicians live to prove their stupidity.

      Handmaidens Tale one state at a time….

    Crapping on Texas. Level epic. Right around 4:30.

      I seen that the other night, it was hilarious.

  8. Hirightnow February 9th, 2015 at 4:36 pm

    Well, if those fetuses (feti?) get appointed Texas public defenders, there’s probably nothing to worry about.

  9. Mike February 9th, 2015 at 5:31 pm

    This is an Onion story, right???

  10. Jake February 9th, 2015 at 6:15 pm

    If thats the case I need a whole firm of lawyers for my…never mind. TMI.

  11. cecilia February 9th, 2015 at 8:20 pm

    how do you conduct a deposition on a fetus?

    • burqa February 9th, 2015 at 10:19 pm

      Stick a microphone on the end of one of those probes they want women considering an abortion to have jammed up in there….

      ……………………………………………………………………………….sorry to be so coarse.

          I’m sure they’ve got some twisted little creep in a back room drawing up legislation….

  12. fahvel February 9th, 2015 at 8:30 pm

    no self respecting pre born would ever want to arrive if it were in texas and a good lawyer should know that.

  13. Tim Coolio February 9th, 2015 at 9:33 pm

    GOP= the forced birth party.

  14. Warman1138 February 9th, 2015 at 9:52 pm

    This could get really bizarre. The line of logic behind this could lead to a type of subjugation once imagined in fiction becoming real.

  15. burqa February 9th, 2015 at 10:18 pm

    This is how they get the government out of our private lives.
    Next thing you know, they’ll be appointing bozack lawyers lawyers to get in there and poke around, all in the name of defending fetuses-to-be.
    They’ll call him the “Briefs Chief” or something…..

    Fine as long as the accept financial responsibility to age 21

  17. oldfart February 10th, 2015 at 1:51 pm

    a “texas republican lawmaker”…that pretty much covers it.
    would every republican lawmaker, without a uterus, pah-leese sit down and STFU.
