Rep. Joe Walsh: Abortion is never needed to save women’s lives

Former deadbeat dad and current jackass Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) has apparently yet to learn to just keep his gormless mouth shut:

Asked by reporters after the debate if he was saying that it’s never medically necessary to conduct an abortion to save the life of a mother, Walsh responded, “Absolutely.”

“With modern technology and science, you can't find one instance,” he said. “... There is no such exception as life of the mother, and as far as health of the mother, same thing.”

Isn’t it fun – by which I mean sickening – how so many of these cranks are perfectly willing to risk the needless deaths of countless women out of sheer cluelessness? I mean, it’s not like women still died from bad pregnancies all the time or that anyone’s out there talking about how abortion saved their life or anything, right?

At least this one isn’t on any governmental science committee.
