A brilliant stroke of agitprop from the Florida ACLU:
Why? Because “when a corporation has more protections than a woman, the best way to keep lawmakers out of your business is to be your own business.”
And why the Florida ACLU? Because the Florida statehouse is where representative Scott Randolph was reprimanded last week for using the word ‘uterus.’ Here’s what he said:
Republicans are always talking about deregulation and big government. But I say their philosophy is small government for the big guy and big government for the little guy. And so, if my wife’s uterus was incorporated or my friend’s bedroom was incorporated, maybe the Republicans would be talking about deregulating.
The reasoning behind the incorporate-your-uterus movement? Since the Supreme Court ruled last year that corporations have the rights of individuals in financing political campaigns, so individuals should have the rights of corporations. Especially when it comes to something that’s already literally incorporated — i.e. part of the body. It’s time to make the physical legal.
Protect your uterus from government interference like the conservative attempt to defund Planned Parenthood and to place further restrictions on abortion rights.
Protect its civil rights!
(Coming soon, says ACLU Florida head Howard Simon: honorary incorporation for the 50% of us who seem to have missed out on a uterus.)
