Good to see he’s getting his butt handed to him in the polls 52/39.
Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL) had a Todd Akin moment of his very own Thursday night when he said “advances in science and technology” have eliminated risks for pregnant mothers and therefore done away with the need for abortion exceptions.
“There’s no such exception as life of the mother,” Walsh said after a debate with Democratic challenger Tammy Duckworth in Chicago. “And as far as health of the mother, same thing. With advances in science and technology, health of the mother has become a tool for abortions any time, under any reason.”
Asked if he believes there is never a medical need to perform an abortion to save a mother’s life, Walsh said: “Absolutely.”
