Paul Ryan’s 'Extreme' Abortion Views

When it comes to abortion, this aint no Condoleezza Rice.

When that's the title of an article by the uber-liberal online newspaper The Daily Beast, you know something's gone right!

Here's an excerpt:
Less attention has been paid, though, to Ryan’s hard-right positions on social issues. Indeed, on abortion and women’s health care, there isn’t much daylight between Ryan and, say, Michele Bachmann. [Oh, the horrors!] Any Republican vice-presidential candidate is going to be broadly anti-abortion, [Well, not this one. What a relief that Romney had enough sense not to pick her.] but Ryan goes much further. He believes ending a pregnancy should be illegal even when it results from rape or incest, or endangers a woman’s health. He was a cosponsor of the Sanctity of Human Life Act, a federal bill defining fertilized eggs as human beings [Oh no! Not another one of those pro-science nuts!], which, if passed, would criminalize some forms of birth control and in vitro fertilization. The National Right to Life Committee has scored his voting record 100 percent every year since he entered the House in 1999. “I’m as pro-life as a person gets,” he told The Weekly Standard’s John McCormack in 2010. “You’re not going to have a truce.”

Congratulations to Mr. Extreme-on-Abortion! May you become the next Vice President so you can impose on the country the "extremeness" of your regard for the sanctity of life!
