    Because Reproductive Health Care Is A Cervine Right

    Because Reproductive Health Care Is A Cervine Right

    I have written before about the moral angst sweeping the upscale Village of Cayuga Heights, bordering the Cornell campus and home to a large number of professors and staff, over how to control the out-of-control deer population.

    After years of debate, which tore the community apart, Cayuga Heights has come up with a solution:

    The board of trustees passed a resolution Monday night to begin implementation of the phased options approach to deer management. The village will begin with the surgical sterilization of 20-60 does within a two-year period, followed by the culling of the remainder of the herd.

    The cost per sterilization? Don’t ask:

    The first phase of sterilization is estimated to take two years at an average cost of $1,200 per doe, according to the statement.

    If they do for our health care system what they’ve done for the deer of Cayuga Heights, we’re sunk.

    Declare them to be Chinese citizens: one fawn per couple.

    Is this some kind of April's Fools joke?!
    What complete and utter nonsense!! Just let everyone hunt.

    Wow! [shakes head] Has no one in Cayuga Heights every heard of an extended all-gender archery season? Maybe using organic arrows just to be on the green side?

    Damn, you people just hate immigrants, don't you…Latinos in California, deer in Cayuga Heights…don't you care about diversity?

    Well, when our all-exalted Government says it's performing a service to the people, it's worth remembering that "service" is also the term used for what the bull does to the cow.
