Republicans Against Abortion Came to “Kill Women”
One of the leading pro-abortion members of the House is causing furor today with her comment that the pro-life Republicans recently elected to Congress want women to die of cancer.
“This is probably one of the worst times we’ve seen because the numbers of people elected to Congress.
