From Michele Bachmann, telling Personhood USA that she would literally die in order to eliminate reproductive rights for other women and make sure that they will die from botched back alley abortions rather than having them performed in a safe environment:
I want everyone to know that I recognize and respect the dignity of every human life from conception until natural death. This is not a check the box thing for me; this is the core of my conviction, this is what I would literally die for. We have a moral obligation to defend other people and the reason for that is because each human being is made in the image of likeness of a holy God.
Unless they’re gay, of course. Then they’re evil and must be forced to pray until it goes away. She also said that “we know that President Obama has a war on the family.” Wrong. The only one declaring war on families here is Bachmann, who wants to deny equal rights and equal protection to the families of gay people.
