There’s a lot of competition, but Debbie Wasserman Schultz has disgraced herself in a way that may surpass anything else she has said. So far. Via Lifesite News (hat tip: Weasel Zippers):
Democratic Party Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz has branded a bill to punish men who trick their girlfriends into aborting against their will, or who otherwise kill a woman’s unborn child, “senseless” and “extreme.”
Yes, that’s right. So devoted is she to abortion that she would not punish those who trick a woman into aborting a child by giving her drug that causes an abortion without her knowledge.Some background on the law DWS attacked:
The state legislature passed the Offenses Against Unborn Children bill after Remee Jo Lee’s story went national last year.
Andrew John Welden tricked Lee, his girlfriend, into taking a bottle of Cytotec (misoprostol) that he had falsely labeled as “Amoxicillin.” She miscarried their child, which she desperately wanted and had already named, last Easter. But Lee was surprised to learn that, because of an oversight in Florida law, Welden could not be charged with harming their unborn baby. Prosecutors could only charge him with violating the federal Unborn Victims of Violence Act because he was accused of breaking federal laws against product tampering.
Florida is one of 14 states that provide no legal remedy for mothers whose unborn children are killed before the point of viability.
That’s when Lee and her family threw their support behind the Offenses Against Unborn Children Act, which treats a crime that harms an unborn child as a separate offense from any damage inflicted on the mother.
This is the person Democrats have placed at the head of their party. The mind boggles at this war on women.
