Anti-Choice Weirdo Plans To Shower Hillary Clinton In Dead Fetuses
Meet Mark Harrington, founder of the anti-choice group Created Equal! He has a really cool and very reasonable sounding idea that he believes will totally convince Hillary Clinton to suddenly decide to hate abortions. You see, in addition to simply parading around her events with pictures of miscarried fetuses, Harrington wants to add a more personal touch.
As part of his new effort called "The Hillary Project," he and those he directs will "personally present" Hillary Clinton with actual aborted fetuses at campaign stops.
Yes, this seems like a sane and reasonable way to get your point across. I don't think you're actually a serial killer or anything, Mark Harrington! In no way do you strike me as someone who is definitely hiding a bunch of live women or dead babies or both in his basement or anything! And I definitely don't think it's weird that you have some way of getting a bunch of dead fetuses to hand out to women you don't like. You probably just got them at the Planned Parenthood garage sale!
As Right Wing Watch notes, there is actually precedent for this. Back in 1992, a peaceful and totally reasonable member of Operation Rescue threw a fetus in a plastic container at Bill Clinton while he was on his morning jog. As you can see, it was very effective and we don't have abortions anymore.
That fella, Harley David Belew, and two other Operation Rescue people, were "arrested and charged with transporting a fetus into New York, removal of human remains from the place of death and improper disposal of a fetus." Which is rather ironic, given that supposedly improper disposal of fetal tissue is their new pet cause. Of course, unlike donating tissue, it actually is illegal to "personally present" a person with a dead fetus.
It sure will be hard for Mark Harrington to complain about fetal tissue donations when he is making up gift baskets 'o' fetal remains, no? Not to mention the fact that if he gets arrested, it is totally possible that the police may check out what (or who) he has hiding in his potato cellar...
