Louisiana Rep. John LaBruzzo Wants Full Abortion Ban In Louisiana. Advocated Sterilizing Poor Women
Man Who Wants Full Abortion Ban In Louisiana Once Advocated Sterilizing Poor Women

When Louisiana Rep. John LaBruzzo announced he was authoring a bill to enact a full ban on all abortions in the state, he claimed that language that a woman obtaining an abortion would be charged with "feticide" was "accidentally" left in the bill.

But based on his past legislative acts involving women, it wasn't an accident at all.

In 2008, LaBruzzo was known for another controversial idea -- one where he proposed paying poor women $1000 each to have their tubes tied.

Via NOLA.com:

Worried that welfare costs are rising as the number of taxpayers declines, state Rep. John LaBruzzo, R-Metairie, said Tuesday he is studying a plan to pay poor women $1,000 to have their Fallopian tubes tied.

2. Have you ever noticed
that none of these legislators ever suggest vasectomies?

(To stop the potential furor -- I am appalled by this idiot's obvious hatred of the poor, with a heaping helping of implied racial bias. But according to these Neanderthals, it's the woman's fault. She got pregnant all on her own.)

5. Gawd - another Ryan/Walker/Cantor/Cuccinelli clone!
Did the GOP start some sort of breeding/cloning camp when Carter was elected? They all look like they came from the same petri dish.
