We interrupt this lovely week of birth happiness for this moment of insanity. Where do they find these asshats, anyway?!
The Colorado Senate voted yesterday on a bill to pay for HIV testing on pregnant mothers. It passed the senate 32 - 1. The lone nay vote came from state senator Dave Schultheis. His reasoning for voting against the bill was:
because the disease “stems from sexual promiscuity” and he didn’t think the Legislature should “remove the negative consequences that take place from poor behavior and unacceptable behavior.” The Colorado Springs lawmaker then proceeded to cast the lone vote against SB 179, which passed 32-1 and moves on to the House.
Hey, reporters asked him to clarify his remarks:
“What I’m hoping is that, yes, that person may have AIDS, have it seriously as a baby and when they grow up, but the mother will begin to feel guilt as a result of that,” he said. “The family will see the negative consequences of that promiscuity and it may make a number of people over the coming years begin to realize that there are negative consequences and maybe they should adjust their behavior.”
This is an elected official who has stated, on the record, that he hopes a baby gets AIDS because then mom won't be a slut.
Google Douchenozzle and you're gonna get this guy's picture for a while.
