Wonderful news this morning, ladies!! According to Tea Party Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL), abortion is no longer needed to save the life or health of the mother, thanks to advances in modern technology and science. Hurrah!!
In a recent debate with challenger Tammy Duckworth (D), Walsh said he was against abortion “without exception,” including rape, incest and in cases in which the life or health of the mother was in jeopardy. Wow, that’s pretty extreme. Maybe he just misspoke? Reporters asked Walsh after the debate whether he was really meaning to say that it was never medically necessary to conduct an abortion to save the life of a mother. Walsh responded, “Absolutely.”
“With modern technology and science, you can’t find one instance … There is no such exception as life of the mother, and as far as health of the mother, same thing.”
Isn’t it amazing how quickly medical science advances nowadays? It seems like it was only two months ago that a 16 year old leukemia patient died from cancer because the Dominican government would not allow her an abortion or chemotherapy. Oh wait, that actually was just two months ago. Wow! So somehow in the past two months researchers have figured out a way to avoid abortion even in cancer patients! We must not be following the news closely enough because we definitely never heard about that discovery, which would pretty much be one of the biggest medical breakthroughs in history.
Thankfully, we have children’s rights champion Joe Walsh to keep us up to date, though. Walsh will do anything to protect the wellbeing of children, whether born or unborn. Unless that means paying child support, in which case, you’re on your own, mini-humans.
*The race between Walsh and Duckworth is still relatively close (seriously, Chicago suburbs? That’s terrible, and you should feel terrible), so why not be awesome and donate to Duckworth’s campaign here?
