Great news! Rep. Joe Walsh lands his photo right next to the word dumbass in the dictionary

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

– Teapartying Congressman Joe Walsh

I’m losing track of what reason this is for why I can’t find a republican to vote for.

Here’s how the story was discussed at the Daily What (reblog alert!)

Illinois Republican Rep. Joe Walsh is under fire for comments he made Thursday night in his final debate against Democrat Tammy Duckworth — he said he opposes abortion “without exception,”even when the life of the mother is at stake.

The trouble came when the Tea Partier doubled down on his position with the media afterward:

“There’s no such exception as life of the mother. And as far as health of the mother, same thing, with advances in science and technology, health of the mother has become a tool for abortions anytime under any reason.”The facts Walsh used to justify his position have been proven absolutely false. In fact, studies show that pregnancy-related deaths for women are on the rise.
