They’re crawling out of the woodwork like roaches on a mission.
Mississippi state Rep. Bubba Carpenter (R) said that it’s OK for women to have coat hanger abortions because it’s for a greater good.
A video obtained by Rachel Maddow’s blog captures Carpenter saying he is proud of Mississippi’s attempts to outlaw abortion outright, despite the fact that the Supreme Court has ruled abortions legal in the United States.
His exact words.
It’s going to be challenged, of course, in the Supreme Court and all — but literally, we stopped abortion in the state of Mississippi, legally, without having to– Roe vs. Wade. So we’ve done that. I was proud of it. The governor signed it into law. And of course, there you have the other side. They’re like, ‘Well, the poor pitiful women that can’t afford to go out of state are just going to start doing them at home with a coat hanger. That’s what we’ve learned over and over and over.’
But hey, you have to have moral values. You have to start somewhere, and that’s what we’ve decided to do. This became law and the governor signed it, and I think for one time, we were first in the nation in the state of Mississippi.
The thinly veiled scam that Mississippi is pulling off here is passing a law they claim puts an end to coat hanger abortions by placing restrictions on which doctors can perform abortions in Mississippi. What the law does in fact is jeopardize the existence of Mississippi’s only abortion clinic thereby leaving women without the means to travel out of state to take matters into their own hands.
The only explanation I can think of on how legislators like Bubba in Mississippi can sleep at night after passing draconian laws that endanger the lives of women is that they’re sociopaths.
And the only explanation I can think of on how people can vote sociopaths like Bubba into office is that they’re a terribly ignorant and backward bunch.
Also, it should be illegal for anyone with the name ‘Bubba’ to enter politics.
