Rep. Chris Smith + Susan B. Anthony List = Totally doing it


Come on, you can’t tell me this weird-ass shout-out Chris Smith makes to the Susan B. Anthony List after H.R. 3 passed the House doesn’t sound a wee enamored. Too bad their love affair over “re-enfranchised” fetuses is bound to get a little rocky once the Senate takes the bill down. (Make sure they do here.)

First of all, I want to thank everyone who was active in the push to enact the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act. Historic legislation, it also has a strong conscience clause, uh, in its revisions. Um, I want to thank the Susan B. Anthony List, Marjorie Dannenfelser — and the whole gang! — for the wonderful work, the groundbreaking work you’ve done over these many years, including putting this legislation to ensure there is no government complicity in the violence of abortion, which hurts both mother and child. We are, I believe, moving to the day when the unborn child will be re-enfranchised, and protected in law from the killing fields we now see occurring throughout our country and sadly throughout the world. The Susan B. Anthony List has played a major role over these many years, and I just want to congratulate all those who have supported SBA, as well as the leaders, especially my good friend Marjorie Dannenfelser.
