OMG No he didn't...
I just watched a clip with Tom Delay, addressing the College Republicans. He contended that we wouldn't have as big a problem with immigration if all of the aborted pregnancies had come to term, presumably because by increasing our native-born labor pool we would depress the short-fall in demand that led to higher wages here than in immigrants' home countries.

Nice. I wonder if he thought that argument all the way through...

I'm going to assume that the userpic was directed at Mr. Delay.

I am going to pretend I didn't read what that man said because if I think about it I will run away screaming. Makes me think of The Handmaid's Tale.
