Here’s a disturbing moment of Tea Party insanity thanks to the horribly uninformed and hyperbolic news director of the Tea Party News Network, Scottie Hughes. Hughes commits one logical fallacy after another, while lying through her tea-stained teeth about abortions in America, and the women who have them. She thinks a fertilized egg is a baby, and life begins at conception.
At the 5:18 mark in the video things really get nasty. John Fugelsang asks the deranged tea partier, “Let’s say Roe v. Wade is overturned and abortion becomes illegal. If a woman is raped and she goes to a doctor, and the doctor terminates the pregnancy – Please tell me who deserves the longest jail sentence? The rapist,the doctor or the woman? In order.”
Tea Party nit-wit Scottie Hughes answers, “Across the board.”
“All three of them?” Fugelsang asks.
“Go for it!” Said Hughes.
So there you have it, folks. In the sick and twisted world of the Tea Party, a woman should face the same jail time for aborting the rapist’s baby, as the rapist gets for raping her.
