Sounds Legit

Former Arkansas governor, failed presidential candidate, and all-around garbage-making machine Mike Huckabee attended a gala last night sponsored by the anti-choice group Susan B. Anthony List, and he made a compelling case for why abortion should be illegal:
[Huckabee] said women typically cite hardship or inconvenience as their reason for getting an abortion — the same reasons that he said could be used to justify ending the lives of the elderly.

"If we teach the generation coming after us that it's okay to terminate a human life because it represents a financial hardship or social disruption, what are we telling them?" Huckabee asked.

"We've already given them the full capability to take us out," he said, prompting laughter from his audience as he continued, "Now, I'm not going to make it that easy for my children to get rid of me."
I guess I shouldn't find it too surprising that the man who evidently believes men and women are different species can't tell the difference between a fetus and a living, breathing, fully formed human person, either.
