GOP Congressman Opposes Abortion Because Fetuses Masturbate

Abortion is one of those serious topics where the law must consider many situations – including rape, socio-economic conditions, and duration of pregnancy – before it can truly protect or deprive human rights. The problem is that both the increasing number and intensity of invalid arguments posed by Congresspeople since 2008 (about all issues) have worsened America’s economic and moral decline.

Obama’s democrats have been a disaster, but as in any competitive market, democracy needs an exchange of good ideas to survive. Can the GOP get more absurd than the 2012 primaries? Apparently so.

Rep. Michael Burgess (R-Texas) said on Monday that 15-week fetuses “stroke their face. If they’re a male baby, they may have their hand between their legs. If they feel pleasure, why is it so hard to think that they could feel pain?”.
