Columnist and Fox News contributor Cal Thomas said Thursday at the Conservative Political Action Conference that MSNBC host Rachel Maddow should have never been born.

A clip of Maddow saying that Republicans were "waging a war on contraception" was played during a political discussion at conservative gathering.

"I’m glad that you played the Rachel Maddow clip because I think she is the best argument in favor of her parents using contraception," Thomas said after the clip. "I would be all for that. And all of the rest of the crowd at MSNBC, too, for that matter."

Republicans have accused Obama of waging a war on religion because of a White House plan to require most insurance plans to cover birth control, without an exemption for religious employers. Churches and some parochial schools are exempt, however.
