the abortion obsession

we canโ€™t escape the reality that Iowa has a labor shortage in part due to human abortion.

It’s good to recognise the signs of irrational obsession with a particular topic. I’m here to help Tom from Quiner’s Diner on this occasion.

If you start to see your pet obsession as the root cause for every piece of news you stumble upon, you’ve probably crossed the line.

I don’t know much about Iowa, but a quick internet search tells me that the population is growing. The article that Tom refers to is specific in that numbers of people aren’t a problem, it’s a lack of relevant skills.

So, it’s a twisted and obsessed mind that imagines forcing women to continue with unwanted pregnancies in unstable relationships could magically create a skilled adult workforce to plug the gap.

We could equally say that the criminalisation of rape has resulted in lower birth rates and caused a shortage of workers. Perhaps he’d like to suggest that the availability of condoms has resulted in lower birth rates and caused a shortage of workers. I’d wager allowing women to have jobs outside the home has resulted in lower birth rates and caused a shortage of workers in Iowa.

Pick your favourite topic to oppress women, and use that to blame for every piece of news. Even simply to put a spin on news that could be perceived as good – because the job market is clearly buoyant in Iowa, and they have the opportunity to encourage skilled workers from all over the world to come and enjoy their fertile land!
