Hey, remember that late-term abortion ban thingy that Republicans in the House of Representatives voted on this week? Yeah, you know, the abortion ban that’s never going to happen but will also never go away either? Right. Well, funny thing about that abortion ban and those who voted in favor of it. You’d think that most of these stuffed-shirt men with zero interest in the independence and overall welfare of women would be all “abortion is wrong because of Jesus” and whatnot, right? Sure.

Well, that is not the case for Tennessee representative Scott DesJarlais, your typical pro-life/family values turd Congressman, because he cheated on his wife. With a woman who ended up becoming pregnant with his child. Who he then pressured to get an abortion. LOL blatant hypocrisy is like, soooo funny!  So basically he totally supports “family values” (read: a 1960s and/or Duggar-ish perspective re: women) except for when they inconveniently and negatively affect his life. Awww, poor Scott DesJarlais.

A spokesperson for DesJarlais told the Free Press, “Congressman DesJarlais was proud to vote in favor of this legislation,” also noting that he maintained a “100 percent pro-life voting record” during his five years in Congress. Now, it’s most likely safe to assume said mistress was not, in fact, 20 weeks pregnant. But an abortion is an abortion, amiright? What an a-hole.
