Pro-Death Republican Compares Women To Turtles To Argue Against Abortion Rights

Republican Senator Steve Daines gave a speech on the Senate floor advocating for abortion to be restricted by comparing women to sea turtles and eagles. Daines argued that because we have laws that protect turtle and eagle eggs, the same logic must be applied to women and abortion rights since the animal egg laws protect the lives of unborn animals. But these lawmakers think there’s no issue with an increased amount of gun homicides in literally every region of the country.

“Republican Steve Daines of Montana took to the floor of the US Senate on Tuesday to compare women to sea turtles and eagles in a speech advocating for the restriction of abortion rights. “Why do we have laws in place that protect the eggs of a sea turtle or the eggs of eagles?” Mr Daines said. “Because when you destroy an egg, you’re killing a pre-born baby sea turtle or a pre-born baby eagle. Yet when it comes to a pre-born human baby rather than a sea turtle, that baby will be stripped of all protections in all 50 states under the Democrats’ bill we will be voting on tomorrow.” The rhetorical gambit to compare people who have babies to animals comes in advance of Wednesday’s scheduled vote on the Women’s Health Protection Act — a bill that would protect abortion rights across the country in advance of the US Supreme Court’s expected ruling reversing Roe v Wade next month.”

    1. Hello Nan. His stunt was meant for the base, who won’t question his reasoning that an endangered turtle egg is equal to the over populating human female’s eggs. The cult base won’t realize a turtle drops the eggs and goes away, a women has to be the entire support system for 9 months and possibly a lot longer. The base won’t think beyond egg to egg. Simple and fits a sound bite and that is what the cult base likes. It is easy for them to repeat. Anything deeper than that confuses them. Hugs
