Texas – Caring About Children

Hello all!

Oddly, enough, while drawing this picture yesterday, I thought a lot about Texas, the new law there that will make abortion nearly impossible. This will be accomplished, in part, by a bounty system targeting women in need.

The people who pushed this law claim to care about children. Yet, oddly, these same people don’t seem to push the covid vaccine even though the high vaccination of adults and teens is the best protection currently available to children. 

These people also typically oppose gun safety laws, as well as any restriction intended to promote clean water, clean air, or the future habitability of the planet.  All things that affect children a very great deal. 

Yet, in spite of all those contradictions, I do believe that many pushing the Texas law care about children. They are just not clear-sighted. And they also seem to have a strong idea that doing God’s work involves controlling and punishing people, particularly women. 

I care about children too. I want them to be loved, and taken care of, and to have enough to eat and to have opportunities to learn and to have a chance at living in this beautiful planet that we were lucky enough to evolve in.  (I say that as someone who also seems to believe in God, at least I pray an awfully lot!)

But I’m not sure that the Texas people would believe that I care about children or the idea of a God, because I also strongly support a woman’s right to have an abortion. 

Which brings me to the drawing above.  Made because I often do pictures for children. Because even though I believe that a woman has a right to control her own body, I also care about children.  And there is not the least contradiction there.

    the cognitive dissonance of the TX lawmakers, and those who vote their ilk in, is deafening. ~
