Leslee Unruh is clearly in need of psychiatric help. The woman is not well.

she is definitely ridiculously creepy and has that weird mannequin being controlled by remote control vibe to her.
i think you might appreciate this too:
"i think we're dead. time is going by really really really slowly."
the snort from the news anchor is great too.
No you don't. She'd probably take them and make a Pro-Life Safari where people can drive through and see all the saved fetuses in their natural habitat. Or she'd implant them with National Right to Life brand microchips with 15 different pro-life battle phrases - "Choose Liiiiiiiife!"
the look on the other woman's face during that amazing diatribe was worth a thousand words.
until just now i had never heard of Leslee Unruh, and now that i have, well... i just she's put in some kind of containment unit. she's like a... a... pre-programmed nonsense-spewing robot. i hope she was only a once-off prototype.
Really? She's just so... deranged. And not responding to questions in ways that would indicate she's heard them. I don't suppose she could maybe, say, be placed full-time in the dinosaur section of that creationist museum that's opening (or has already opened) in Kentucky?(http://www.answersingenesis.org/museum/walkthrough/ , http://www.creationmuseum.org/) It seems like she'd quite like it in there, and at least her demented ravings about the beauty of childbirth, the evils of "Big Pharma", and people who support women's right to choose how and when to have babies would be contained.
Target can furnish you with the tools, sister, it's up to you to use them!
1. I think pills that take away women's periods are creepy, but I think birth control pills and most prescription drugs are creepy in general. I choose not to take anything synthetic nowadays because I don't want something that was cooked up in a laboratory to interfere with my body's natural processes. I don't think Big Pharma has our best interests or our health in mind, I think they have profits in mind.
2. I actually really do believe that abortion is murder. a baby is every bit as much of a life inside the womb as outside --- I believe babies have souls from the moment they are just a clump of cells, actually. as odd as this statement may seem coming from a highly educated, professional, 37-year-old liberal feminist who's been atheist most of her life and who's never been married and has no kids.
3. however, given those two statements, I would never be so arrogant as to want to take away a woman's right to choose ... whether she exercises that right through whatever form of birth control she chooses or through abortion. if women want to put chemicals in their bodies every day or stick a chemical patch on their skin, or stick some foreign object in their wombs to avoid pregnancy, that is their choice. if women want to take a life, their own child's life, and they've thought that through and really believe that is the best decision, no one should force them to bear a child. it's her body. I'm not being sarcastic at all. I 100% support a woman's right to choose. I shudder to think of living in a society that denies women this right.
and I agree Leslee Unruh is an idiot whose over-the-top absurdities serve only to obscure the good points she actually does make about Big Pharma.
Sadly, I don't think her criticism of Big Pharma has anything to do with Big Pharma, just like I don't think her reference to "controlling our own bodies" has anything to do with actually controlling our own bodies -- it's just an attempt to co-opt liberal/pro-choice language and muddy the waters. The fact is that most women worldwide don't want to bear baby after baby after baby from marriage until menopause (or from loss of virginity until menopause, but in Unruh's ideal world that's probably the same thing). Women aren't buying what she's selling, and she has to blame someone for that.
I really wonder about some of the ways pharmaceutical companies market birth control pills -- sometimes they seem to present them as a fashion statement -- and I know first-hand that they often have side effects, but Leslee Unruh's basic objection to them is that they work.
