The Clueless Crusade is still on

Event promotes abortion rights
According to the National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League, before Jane Roe fought for her reproductive rights in 1973, abortion was illegal in all but four states and abortions in those states were given only in dire situations.

Abortion was legal on-demand in New York and California clear back to 1970.
Each year, an estimated 5,000 women would die of botched abortions.

Will somebody please put a stake in that thing's heart? Can these people get a freaking clue?!?!?!?!

You know what it reminds me of? I once worked in a tiny, cramped little office. One of my co-workers was loudly and vehemently informing somebody that abortion was illegal after 12 weeks. I didn't say a word. I just picked up the phone book, turned it to the Yellow Pages, and pointed to the two ads for the city's two abortion clinics, both of which advertised abortions to 24 weeks. The woman in question just made a disgusted noise and said, "Oh, OKAY!"

About a week later, she was again vehemently and loudly informing somebody that abortion was illegal after 12 weeks.

Are these people on drugs? Have they been lobotomized? What's the deal?
