State Rep. Emmer pulls a Michele Bachmann

What is up with the hypocritical bullshit right wingers are pulling with their usage of pro-choice language to oppose health care reform? In a New York Times article on lawmakers who are seeking a ban on mandates for health insurance, Minnesota State Representative Tom Emmer is in the featured pic, with his quote in the caption:

“All I’m trying to do is protect the individual’s right to make health care decisions. I just don’t want the government getting between my decisions with my doctors.

He’s also described his proposed legislation allowing the state to refuse a federal universal health care system as an amendment that would “protect the freedom of personal choice in health care.”
And yes, he is 100% anti-choice.
h/t to Aaron.
