Oh, nothing unusual. Just your average Republican Rep. from Kansas (where else?) Todd Tiahrt ranting against Obama's health care plan with the airtight argument that if health care covered abortions, Obama's mom might have aborted him.
Luckily, Todd understands what Obama and the rest of those socialist Democrats don't--that low-income mothers of African-Americans, like President Barack Obama and Justice Clarence Thomas, would have aborted their children, if only given the opportunity to have a free, government-funded abortion. Oooh enticing!
"There is a financial incentive that would be put in place, paid for by tax dollars, that would encourage single parents, living below the poverty level, to have the opportunity for a free abortion. If you take that scenario and apply it to many of the great minds we have today, who would we have been deprived of? Our President grew up in those similar circumstances. If that financial incentive was in place, is it possible that his mother might have taken advantage of it? Clarence Thomas, Supreme Court Justice, if those circumstances were in place, is it possible that we’d have been denied his great mind?"
Possible sure. Everyone has the right to dream.
