Louise Slaughter (D) Says GOP Freshman Came “To Kill Women”

More of the new civility tone

Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-N.Y.) said today that the new Republicans elected to the House of Representatives last November came to Congress “to kill women.” She also likened Republican efforts to prohibit federal funding of abortion except in cases of rape, incest or where the life of the mother is endangered to actions taken by Nazis.

“This is probably one of the worst times we’ve seen because the numbers of people elected to Congress. I went through this as co-chair of the arts caucus,” Slaughter said. “In ’94 people were elected simply to come here to kill the National Endowment for the Arts. Now they’re here to kill women.”

She’s pissed off about HR3, which would make the Hyde Amendment, which prohibits the use of federal money to pay for abortions “except in cases of rape or incest or a threat to the life of the mother, and that would also prohibit people from taking tax deductions for payments made for abortions except in those circumstances”, permanent, instead of it just being attached to an appropriations bill every year.

    This is part of the new civility from Obama’s party?

    The man can’t lead his own party much less the country.
