Here are the Repugnican wingnuts, well known for their religious perniciousness, in all their wingnuttery glory:
Sen. Mel Martinez (Fla)
Sen. Roger Wicker (Miss)
Sen. Sam Brownback (Kan)
Sen. Tom Coburn (Okla)
Sen. Jim DeMint (da Candy Man) (SC)
Sen. Mike Enzi (Wyo)
Sen. James Inhofe (Okla)
Sen. John Thune (SD)
Sen. David Vitter (La.)
Sen. George Voinovich (Ohio)
These morons have re-introduced the so-called "Life at Conception Act," which states that human life begins at conception, but also specifies that the "unborn" are "persons" under the 14th Amendment to the Constitution.
Wicker, the Mississippi moron, says that "most" Americans agree with this perverse nonsense!
Da Candy Man, DeMint, thinks that fetuses "must" have the right to "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."
Thune opines that fetuses are unique human beings "fully deserving our society's attention, provision and care."
And good ol' prostitute chaser Dave Vitter, renowned in certain areas of New Orleans, insists that we know life begins at conception because science has so concluded. Not!
Do you wonder why, with all of the immediate, profound, threatening, and demanding crises we face in this country, these idiots are futzing around with crap like this? Yes?
Well, I'll tell you. First of all, collectively, they don't have enough brains to offer any meaningful suggestions to deal with our multiple crises! Secondly, they have drunk the koolaid of religious theocrats and thus are trying to force their religious beliefs on the entire country. (This is nothing more than fundamentalist Roman Catholicism and fundy christianist Protestantism wrapped in legalese). Thirdly, (and perhaps this is their main goal), the legislation is a transparent attempt to reverse Roe v. Wade. If life begins at conception, then abortion is murder, pure and simple.
Oh, contraception also must become illegal, too. To halt conception by artificial means would also be murder.
Fortunately, the legislation doesn't have a chance in hell of being passed (I hope!), but it impresses the hell out of the wingnuts in the states these bozos represent.
Meanwhile, the rest of us non-wingnuts, who live in one of the aforementioned states, must live with a sense of frustration and shame because of the asshats who represent us in Congress.
