Morning Maddow: So Many GOP Lies, So Much Rachel Debunking

This animation annoys us: aren't the two choo-choos on the left crashing into each other?
Rachel Maddow brought us a double helping of Debunktion Junction Wednesday night, because there was just too much misinformation out there for a single segment. First off, she looked at that outrageous ad that congressmoron Kevin Cramer filmed in the North Dakota Veterans Cemetery without permission, violating VA rules to use dead soldiers’ graves as props in an ad. Cramer insisted to several media outlets that he would withdraw the ad. Has he actually done it? Watch and find out! Read more on Morning Maddow: So Many GOP Lies, So Much Rachel Debunking…

Fearing Witchcraft, House Republicans Pull Proposal For National Science Laureate

Thanks to the efforts of global warming deniers, House leadership has quietly pulled a bill that would have created an honorary, unpaid position of “American Science Laureate,” saving the nation’s schoolchildren from the specter of encountering dangerous pro-science messages. Science magazine explains that the bill was expected to pass easily until Larry Hart of the American Conservative Union complained that an official Science Laureate would allow President Obama to appoint some wild-eyed freak in a lab coat “who will share his view that science should serve political ends, on such issues as climate change and regulation of greenhouse gases.

LifeNews Finally Proves Link Between Abortion And Breast Cancer (By Making It Up)

LifeNews.com is a pretty cool website, at least for the people who say “pro-life” instead of “anti-abortion.” It brings together all the news that makes abortion look like it is not only killing full-grown toddlers, but their mothers and families and probably priests too. It’s the go-to place to see the abortion narratives in the media challenged, at least whenever the narrative happens to make abortion look awful. So when we saw the headline “Abortion Helps Cause 90% Increase in Breast Cancers in 33 Years,” we were all like, oooooooh and whoaaa, and we totally clicked on that shit. What was this news?! This study gives a potent new weapon to abortion opponents! HA! Just kidding! It is exactly the opposite.

Irish Hospital Lets Woman Die Because Her Life Wasn’t ‘Endangered’ Enough For Abortion

We were worried that you, the Wonkette Reader, might not have quite enough rage coursing through you today, and so here is the story, via Dan Savage at The Stranger, of Savita Halappanavar, a 31-year-old woman who died in Galway, Ireland, last month after doctors decided that, although she was already miscarrying and there was no chance her 17-week-old fetus could survive, she didn’t quite qualify to have her life saved because the dying fetus still had a heartbeat. Ireland’s abortion law only allows the procedure when the mother’s life is in danger, just like the “moderate” position that Mitt Romney proposed, and which “pro-life” purists (including the 2012 GOP platform) oppose because, as Congressman Joe Walsh asserted in his final debate before losing his bid for reelection, “pro-life” people believe “There’s no such exception as life of the mother. And as far as health of the mother, same thing, with advances in science and technology, health of the mother has become a tool for abortions anytime under any reason.” And since they are quite sure of this, it is assuredly so.
