The Remarkable Republican War on Recreational Abortions

Chris Hare reports that "in a recently released email blast" South Carolina Republican Party Chairman Chad Connelly
makes the bizarre claim that thanks to Sandra Fluke, the Democratic Party now believes that "abortions and taxpayer-funded birth control are rites of passage for every teenage girl -- sort of like the prom or a first car."
Sort of like the prom? Every teenage girl? Heart or head -- which is made to hurt more reading such appalling hateful nonsense?

This incident is on par with the time when Republican Congressman John Fleming posted with alarm on his Facebook status regarding an Onion article about the Abortionplex, an abortion-themed mall featuring "coffee shops, bars, dozens of restaurants and retail outlets, a three-story nightclub, and a 10-screen multiplex theater". Fleming truly did not understand that everything printed in the Onion is satire. http://www.theatlanticwire.com/national/2012/02/congressman-falls-months-old-onion-story-about-planned-parenthood-abortionplex/48344/
