‘If Babies Had Guns They Wouldn’t Be Aborted’ Claims One Republican Representative

Um, wow. I see what you did there – pretty impressive. Why not get the whole anti-abortion, pro-gun message out there in one full swoop? I mean, I can’t believe the NRA didn’t think of this tactic first. Arming fetuses! It’s brilliant!

The bumper sticker was released by his campaign staff and not the congressman himself – but after seeing the press it garnered him, he quickly began using the attention to make some equally ridiculous political statements.

Interesting point -but wrong. There was and continues to be a huge liberal and feminist backlash against Dr. Gosnell – mostly because he reminds us the kind of horrific conditions we may need to return to if you get your way and safe and legal abortions are ultimately banned. You sir, are an idiot. But thanks for helping illustrate why your illogical, ill-informed smear campaign will not work. The tactic of taking one extreme case and extrapolating it to an entire group of ethical doctors doing important work is appalling. But expected.

Unfortunately, there is a huge group of voters that actually agree with this guy’s faulty reasoning. According to the Daily Mail, the sale of these ridiculous bumper stickers has helped to “fund his campaign war chest for his 2014 re-election bid.” Funny that his sect will defend the life of the unborn unabashedly – but as soon as these fetuses become babies they have no interest in supporting laws that will essentially keep them safer. No point in arguing this though. As one Twitter user responded, “Never mind… it’s like arguing with your drunk uncle.”

Ugh. Exactly.
