You decide: Which anti-choicer takes the cake?
Feministing compiles three politicians making anti-abortion statements and asks readers to determine which was the dumbest of them all. They are:

US Senator Rand Paul (R-KY): "The point is that most members of your administration probably would be frank and characterize themselves as being pro-choice for abortion. But youre really anti-choice on every other consumer item that youve listed here, including light bulbs, refrigerators, toilets, you name it."

US Rep. Jean Schmidt (R-OH): "Every one of us has the right to life, born and unborn, and it is the women who have the responsibility to make sure that that baby is born...I mean, you look at our president. Do you think when he was born his mom thought he was going to be the president of the United States?"

State Rep. Keith Regier Rangers (R-MT): "Ranchers refer to cows as either preg-tested or open. A preg-tested cow is a cow that has been tested by a veterarian and confirmed to be pregnant. Open cows are not pregnant. Preg-tested cows bring a higher price than open cowsWhy does it bring a higher price? Because the calf the cow is carrying has a value even though it isnt completed. If unfinished buildings and unborn cows have a value in Montana, shouldnt unborn children have a value?"

Who elects these fools to office again?

1. They're all offensive, but the comparison of women to preg-tested cows takes the cake.

3. That's a real head shaker
I mean--aren't most of those cows, preggers or not, headed for the slaughterhouse?

Beyond idiocy!

2. That rangers has a good idea
You can get a woman pregnant and then sell her on the open market because she is more valuable
I wonder if we could start a pregnant woman commodity exchange on wall street?? They are missing
a great money making venture here



The Regressive Party sets the bar very low......only snakes and vermin can slide underneath

8. That's what I was thinking. Only the woman is not worth more. It's the fetus inside that adds value
despicable

7. I vote for Mr "Wimminz Is Like Livestock"
He gets right to the point, no dancing around that "choice" or "could be Prez" fluffy feel-good stuff.

And this "preg-tested" women deal will be the perfect bobsled ride to the Hell of the Republic of Gilead.
