The Republican "War on Women" has yet another proponent. No joke, the WTF?'s from the GOP have been coming fast and furious of late, but this one takes the cake!
“Life gives us many experiences…I’ve had the experience of delivering calves, dead and alive. Delivering pigs, dead or alive."
"Georgia State Rep. Terry England compared women seeking abortions of stillborn fetuses to cows and pigs. He was speaking in favor of HR954, which makes it illegal to obtain an abortion after 20 weeks even if the woman is known to be carrying a stillborn fetus or the baby is otherwise not expect to live to term."
"England then decided to say that the argument against abortion must be great if his cockfighting friend is willing to give up cockfighting so that women will stop getting abortions… Said the cockfighting enthusiast, who has been threatened by cockfighting laws, and bristled against them forever until he found his cause in the zygote:
"Mr. Terry, I wanna tell you something. You tell those folks down there, when they quit killing babies, they can have every chicken I’ve got."

Tell members of the Georgia Senate to VOTE NO on HB 954! Find your Senator at http://votesmart.org/.
This is the douchebag who sponsored the bill...
(BTW, this douchebag was a pro-choice Democrat until he "found Jesus" and switched parties)
More GOP logic from Representative Charlice Byrd...

Perhaps the most disturbing update to a blog I have ever posted:
They passed the bill!
This is from the website of Representative Doug McKillip who sponsored the bill:
WE DID IT! SWEEPING PRO-LIFE LEGISLATION PASSES!
Yesterday was a big day. In the final minutes on the final day of the Legislative Session, we managed to pass the most sweeping pro-life legislation in Georgia history.
HB 954, better known as the "Fetal pain" bill will end elective abortions from taking place after 20 weeks of pregnancy. This legislation provides for the first ever ban on barbaric late term abortions in Georgia.
Despite the best efforts of the liberals and their vicious attacks, we succeeded in saving the lives of the innocent unborn.
I just want to thank you for your prayers and support through this fight. I couldn't have done it without the power of prayer and the encouragement I received from so many.
Due to our efforts, thousands of innocent lives will be saved each year in Georgia.
With your continued support, you have my word that I will continue working to pass sweeping conservative reforms that reflect our values.
Thanks again and God Bless,
