Minnesota state Rep. Gruenhagen: ‘Perverted’ men made abortion legal

Published

on

Minnesota state Rep. Glenn Gruenhagen (R) compared the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision, which legalized access abortion, to the court’s ruling in Dred Scott v. Sandford, which said former slaves could not become U.S. citizens.

“Ladies, the Supreme Court made this ruling,” Gruenhagen said on House floor in reference to Roe v. Wade. “They’re not infallible. If you remember right, the Supreme Court made a 7-2 ruling on slavery, with Dred Scott, in fact he was part of Minnesota here.”

The Minnesota House passed legislation that would prevent taxpayer money from paying for abortions for low-income women on state-funded medical programs. The bill was passed by a 80 to 44 vote Friday.

“Let me just remind you, especially ladies, it was seven men that made abortion legal,” he continued. “Not seven women. Now what’s the significance of that? Men, a certain percentage, have developed a perverted view of women and what abortion tells men is they can use women and lose them.”

The state’s House also approved legislation that makes it a felony for any doctor in Minnesota to perform an abortion after 20 weeks of gestation.

“Then on top of that we have the state showing up and paying for the sexual exploitation of women,” Gruenhagen said. “Ladies, let’s put a stop to this. Let’s put a stop to sending a message to men that they can use you and leave you with the consequences and have the government pick up the tab for that.”

Discussing the departure of Donald Trump's spokesperson Sarah Sanders from the White House, an MSNBC panel surveyed her possible replacements with one ridiculed for his appearances on TV defending the president.

Speaking with "AM Joy" fill-in host Jonathan Capehart, The Beat DC editor Tiffany Cross shot former Trump associate Stever Cortes -- a regular on CNN -- down as a possible candidate.

"There are names that are out there," Capehart suggested. "[Meliania Trump spokesperson] Stephanie Grisham and Hogan Gidley and Steve Cortes."

Can at least half the 2020 Democrats please quit right now?

Published

OK, Democrats — you’ve had your fun. You grew up being told that everybody could run for president, and then everybody did. Except that this mad anthill scramble of presidential candidates, which resembles a bunch of kindergarteners descending on not enough cookies, really hasn’t been fun so far. All you’ve managed to do is put the fear of God — or the fear of the other guy, more like — into the voters, provoking widespread PTSD flashbacks to November 2016.
