Arizona Republican Thinks Women Should Be Forced To Watch An Abortion Before Getting One

If you thought the wingnuts in Arizona can't get any crazier, you were wrong. Check out this statement by Rep. Terri Proud (R-Tucson):

"Personally I'd like to make a law that mandates a woman watch an abortion being performed prior to having a "surgical procedure." If it's not a life it shouldn't matter, if it doesn't harm a woman then she shouldn't care, and don't we want more transparency and education in the medical profession anyway? We demand it everywhere else.

Until the dead child can tell me that she/he does not feel any pain - I have no intentions of clearing the conscience of the living - I will be voting YES."

But the War on Women is just an invention of the Democrats and the media to make conservatives look bad.

Proud should keep it up. With talk like this, she'll wind up with the Veep slot.
