Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT) took to the floor of the Senate Tuesday with a shockingly ignorant argument in opposition to the Women’s Health Protection Act, aka the abortion rights bill, that will be voted on tomorrow.

DAINES: Why do we have laws in place that protect the eggs of a sea turtle or the eggs of eagles? Because when you destroy an egg, you’re killing a pre-born baby sea turtle or a pre-born baby eagle.
