In yet another one of those head-shaking moments too often provided by the (anti-choice) Minnesota Congresswoman, she said the following on Sean Hannity's radio show on Tuesday (click here for audio, and here for NARAL's story):
"That's why people need to continue to go to the town halls, continue to melt the phone lines of their liberal members of Congress and let them know, under no certain circumstances will I give the government control over my body and my health care decisions."O RLY. Under no circumstances, huh? So you're going to lead the pro-choice cause now? Because pregnancy is certainly a pretty big "circumstance" for which you yourself want legislation that would give government control over women's bodies.
On her Web site, Bachmann proudly reports that she has the support of "the Susan B. Anthony List, Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life (MCCL), and the National Pro-Life Alliance." On ontheissues.org, you can see abortion-related legislation she has voted on or co-sponsored, including a bill that would have "implented equal protection under the 14th Amendment to the Constitution for the right to life of each born and preborn human person."
Hmm, what would that legislation mean if ever passed? Oh, right: forced births. Women would no longer have control over their own bodies, and the government would. The exact situation she is telling people should not happen under any circumstance happens to be one she's more than in favor of and advocates for.
Get out of my uterus, Michele Bachmann. You yourself said I shouldn't give control of my body to the government. I'm more than happy to oblige.
