Levin Report: Samuel Alito, Last Seen Obliterating Abortion Rights, Thinks Liberal Female Colleague Should Be Seen and Not Heard
Good news! But “Denny Dalliance”? Really?
Is it too late for Herschel Walker?
Denny Dalliance had long worried about what would happen if he fathered a child because his job as a truck driver keeps him away from home most of the week.
Something about this opening statement felt suspicious to me…
Dalliance, the truck driver, said he didn’t want to place the responsibility of birth control on partners anymore, especially with abortions harder to get.
Emphasis mine. Yup, name checks out.
“I don’t want to come off as though I’m like unhappy to be doing this, but this is a situation where my hand kind of got forced with regards to the Roe v. Wade decision,” he said.
“I feel like that, with the extreme cost involved with having a child in the United States, I kind of got priced out,” he said. “And so this is me cashing out my chips as it were. It’s the right ethical decision for me, but it’s not one that’s made lightly.”
All joking aside. this reads to me as “I can no longer shift the responsibility for my lack of effective birth control on to my partners, so I’m going to now do the responsible thing I should have done years ago.”
Obviously there are a lot of factors, but for his situation the math is very straightforward. I can imagine no scenario where the cost of a single vasectomy is more expensive than potentially multiple abortions or other surgical options for long-term birth control. I would argue that the only thing the Dobbs decision did for this man was to change the priority of his selfishness.
Alito and his ilk…since wanting them to die is morally wrong, I suppose I’d have to settle with dosing them with LSD and hoping their consciousnesses expand.
