Tonight we have a Double Wanker Award for Rep Bart Stupak.
So what does Stupak want to do? (h/t Digby):
[He believes that] every government benefit a woman receives, whether monetary or in-kind, whether for healthcare or for something else, could be seen as subsidizing an abortion if she has one.
If everyone thought like Bart Stupak, a woman seeking an abortion:
(1) would not be able to take a public bus or commuter train to an abortion clinic, even if she paid her own fare;
(2) would not be able to drive on public roads to a clinic, even if she drove her own car and paid for her own gas;
So just who is this guy?
Thank you, Rachel, for giving the guy some much needed exposure. He is a true whackjob and well outside the mainstream.
