“If Babies Had Guns They Wouldn’t Be Aborted”

Stockman Loves Babies with Guns

Rep. Steve Stockman of Texas asked himself ‘how can we combine the gun control debate with the abortion debate’. The answer? Giving guns to fetuses.

On Friday, the pro-gun, anti-abortion rights Republican unveiled his new campaign bumper sticker on Twitter:

“If babies had guns they wouldn’t be aborted. Vote Pro-Life!”

Stockmen Tweets About Guns and Babies

Logistics aside (such as, how do you stop the gun from firing while trying to deliver it to the baby?), great slogan. It pretty much sums up Rep Stockman’s position: more guns, more babies, and more babies with guns. 

The #gosnell refers to the trail of abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell, who was arrested last year on murder charges. He has been accused of running an abortion clinic that offered late term abortions. But that’s not all: the doctor has also been charged in the murder of a woman during a botched abortion, as well as the murder of seven babies born alive.

Stockman, like many other conservatives, wants the liberal media to focus more heavily on the trial. As some gruesome details of the trail have leaked out, conservatives have accused the media of ignoring a story that could start a whole new debate over abortion rights. The campaign slogan, however, is a little harder to ignore.

Stockman recently invited all gun owners and manufacturers who feel “unwanted” and “persecuted” by their states’ restrictive gun control policies to move to Texas. Perhaps he could invite all the unwanted babies too? Or, since Stockman believes in unrestricted access to guns to reduce violent crime, he could promote open and unrestricted access to reliable birth control methods to reduce the number of abortions. Just a thought… Although it makes for a less catchy bumper sticker.
