Guns vs Abortion


Guns vs Abortion

There is a quote doing the rounds on the internet that resonated with us at MoI HQ.

“I want men who buy a gun to be treated like young women who seek an abortion. Think about it: a mandatory 48-hours waiting period, written permission from a parent or a judge, a note from a doctor proving that he understands what he is about to do, time spent watching a video on individual and mass murders, traveling hundreds of miles at his own expense to the nearest gun shop, and walking through protestors holding photos of loved ones killed by guns, protestor who call him a murderer.  After all, it makes more sense to do this for young men seeking guns than for young women seeking an abortion. No young woman needing reproductive freedom has ever murdered a roomful of strangers.”

The quote has been attributed to Gloria Steinmen, as it appeared on her Christmas wish list in 2015.  No-one knows the original author, but we thank them for this.  It makes total sense to use that there need to be tighter gun control rather than controlling women and access to healthcare.
