Generation Chickenhawk

Check out blogger Max Blumenthal's venture into the world of college republicans here.

As a feminist I am particularly fond of this quote from former Congressman Tom Delay:

"If you believe abortion, if you believe that doesn't affect you... I contend it affects you in immigration. If we had those 40 million children that were killed over the last 40 years, we wouldn't need the illegal immigrants to fill the jobs that they are doing today. Think about it"

Scary that someone would reason like that, isn't it? Even more scary to consider that the view-point that abortion forces illegal immigration is not that uncommon among anti-abortion agitators.
