Wingnut hero Ayn Rand quote on Abortion (guaranteed to infuriate them)
Advertisements [?]
Edited on Fri May-20-05 10:42 AM by Sandpiper
The far right worships Ayn Rand because of her ultra laissez faire economic views. But when it came to the "pro-life" movement, she had this to say:


"Never mind the vicious nonsense of claiming that an embryo has a 'right to life.' A piece of protoplasm has no rights - and no life in the human sense of the term. One may argue about the later stages of a pregnancy, but the essential issue concerns only the first three months. To equate a potential with an actual, is vicious; to advocate the sacrifice of the latter to the former, is unspeakable."



Be sure to share with any Rand loving Repuke you might know.
