Quote# 92799

One of the good pieces of news why we're winning this war is because there are not enough heartless doctors being graduated from medical schools. There's a real shortage of abortionists. Who wants to be at the very bottom of the food chain of the medical profession? And what sort of places do these bottom-of-the-food-chain doctors work in? Places that are really a pit. You find that along with the culture of death go all kinds of other law-breaking: not following good sanitary procedure, giving abortions to women who are not actually pregnant, cheating on taxes, all these kinds of things, misuse of anesthetics so that people die or almost die. All of these things are common practice, and all of that information is available for America. And the day is coming where this public discussion will continue, and America will say, "We're tired of abortion, because it's so fundamentally un-American." And this, like a bad nightmare, will pass away and there will be a day, just as there is today, where people say "Who would ever support slavery?" In the future there will be a day when men will say "Who would ever have supported something so un-American as abortion?"

What an utterly ignorant and clueless man.

"giving abortions to women who are not actually pregnant"

This one deserves a Kubrick stare. A facepalm just isn't expressive enough.

2/22/2013 4:54:58 AM


Well, that's just dandy, so long as those pesky women don't have any input on the subject ofcourse...

One would think that after losing his mandate because of his “the female body can shut this whole thing down” gaffe he would stop commenting on any similar themes before repeating a high school health class.

I have nothing more to say that what I already posted in the Mary-Sue McClurkin thread:


From: The board of the Republican Party
To: Every party member in any public office

Re: Public statements regarding the female human body

We advise every party member in an elected and/or public office to abstain from any public statements about the workings of the female human body until they consulted with at least one qualified medical practitioner about the issue in question.

This includes but is not restrained to: rape, conception, contraception, abortion and similar topics.

Otherwise the party fears that we will continue to put our collective foot in our collective mouth and will further alienate the voters.

And there are enough other topics where we can achieve that…

How did that election go for ya, Todd?

2/22/2013 5:26:12 AM


why is Todd Akin still allowed to speak at all ever

2/22/2013 5:48:22 AM


It looks like the guy who said that birth control pills cause uteruses to be lined with dead fetuses and the woman who said that a fetus is the largest organ in the body took my suggestion, got married, and had a son.

...said Todd Akin, former Member of the House of Representatives.

'Former'. Mayhaps that one little word should clue you in on how your political career is like that of the dinosaurs: nonexistent.

Your continuing attitude - which resulted in said career becoming extinct, post-6th Nov. 2012 - is certainly just as prehistoric.

Enjoy your guitar-playing & gospel singing, Toddy-boy.. you've now got all the time in the world to do so now.

Claire McCaskill appreciates you keeping that seat warm for her on Capitol Hill. [/hyper-sarcasm]

Even the Kubrick Stare would give Fluttershy pause. o_O;

Keep digging that hole deeper until you finally reach Potato, Todd.

This guy is from my state. I am infinitely sorry he was ever a serious candidate for McCaskill's seat. And furthermore, I'm sorry he even got a seat in the House. I just...I thought STL was better than him.

Blah blah blah, your side is losing, get over it!

giving abortions to women who are not actually pregnant

How exactly does that work?

"Who would ever have supported something so un-American as abortion?"

Half the country?

2/22/2013 6:49:13 AM

One could argue and try to figure out wtf Todd's trying to say, but I'm just going to go with Brian's advice from Family Guy: It's easier just to call him stupid.

Honestly, we might as well ban abortion under the reason that people like Todd have no fucking clue how the abortions or the female body works.

2/22/2013 7:14:35 AM


In a dictionary under 'moron' it says - 'Twenty times more intelligent than Todd Akin'

I'm about as worried about doctors performing abortions on women who aren't pregnant as I am about people performing brain surgery on Todd Akin.

2/22/2013 7:40:24 AM


That is the opposite of the truth on every level.

Do you know what is "un-American"? Trying to impose your personal religious beliefs on the entire country.

2/22/2013 7:42:02 AM


"giving abortions to women who are not actually pregnant"

Abortion is just a buzzword for you, isn't it Todd?

2/22/2013 8:00:31 AM


"giving abortions to women who are not actually pregnant"
When I think about the fact that this idiot got elected several times, and was member of any kind of committee having to do with science, I feel a really deep need to build a 10m fence around the United States and let nobody ever get out of there again.
(I know there are many many many Americans that aren't stupid, but quite intelligent. But this is an instictual need when I read stuff like this; it has nothing to do with logic.)

2/22/2013 8:16:57 AM


And again, fundie statements break their back under the burden of proof.

Give me some numbers, some verifiable sources for the figures you use, and I might just be a hair more inclined to believe you.
Until then, I'm treating your statements as gossip.

2/22/2013 8:18:14 AM


giving abortions to women who are not actually pregnant

But what happens if a woman is legitimately raped but can't carry her non-existent fetus to term?

2/22/2013 8:21:57 AM

Mister Spak

""Who would ever have supported something so un-American as abortion?""

Who would have ever supported something so un-American as fundieism?

UnAmerican fundies of course. And in the future they will still be supporting it.

2/22/2013 8:39:19 AM


You are just a fountain of wrong, aren't you? Just about every sentence in your screed introduces another element of stupidly wrong, unsupported crap. Well done, sh*twit.

2/22/2013 9:45:13 AM


Let me list a few of those low-grade places where abortions are performed:

Abortion is as American as apple pie: In the British colonies abortions were legal if they were performed prior to quickening. (when the fetus can be felt to move, 2nd trimester.)
