|Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC)|
And for my colleagues across the aisle who say that this is a misogynist bill, nobody has ever fought more for the rights of women than I have. But 50 percent of the unborn babies that are being aborted are females. So the misogyny comes for those who promote — promote the killing of unborn babies. That's where the misogyny comes in, Madam Speaker, it doesn't come in from our trying to protect taxpayers' money from being spent on killing unborn children.
So, raving ignorantly about public funds being used on abortions (which they aren’t and haven’t been for decades) is pro-feminism, and terminating pregnancies in equal measures for male and female fetuses on average* is anti-woman.
I’d say you can’t make this sort of silliness up, but then, that’s exactly what Republicans have been doing for a while, now.
