Anti abortionists are virtue signaling SJWs, except for the ones that are bitter about other people having sex.

I'm amazed he had enough shame to resign. That's a rare thing in the Party of Trump. Shame, I mean.

The GOP is not pro life...they are FORCED BIRTH.

Pro life would entail funding health care for everyone, good education and food for poor people.

Their "prolife" stance is just to appeal to the fundie morons that think they care about abortion.

No they are neither. They a dependent upon a coalition of haters, the fake Christians is one leg of their base. Does anyone who posts here honestly believe Trump had a "come to Jesus" moment and decided abortion was morally wrong? Or that most of the other politicians did either. OR the pundits. These money grubbing hypocrites don't give a crap about abortion, they care about pleasing their ignorant hateful base or racist and other types of filth. Never dignify the right by pretending there is real sincerity in their beliefs.

Clear example of DUH. Politicians one-and-all are not including themselves in ANY talking points they utter about morality, wealth, or responsibility. Those words are for we, the teeming masses of little people they believe incapable of making good personal decisions.

"Anti abortionists are virtue signaling SJWs"

Agreed, to a large extent. When I hear the phrase "social justice" activists, I think of so-called pro-lifers just as much as any other group.

Hypocrisy is a valid topic. The cries of whataboutism is the deflection.

Both sides commit hypocrisy and is a valid topic. The cries of bothsiderism is the deflection.

Murphy's resignation happened in 2017.

But the point made about it on Twitter is still relevant. This is some higher level hypocrisy. We need a new term for this kind of personal fraud. Hypercrisy, maybe.

I have no doubt this kind of thing happens daily among the holier-than-thou moralists on the right. Suddenly the reality of an actual baby you made outside of the sanctity of marriage between one man and one woman is staring you in the face, and all you can think of is, "Can't we just make it go away? Can't my lawyer file something? I always did that when I was embezzling or using undocumented workers at my business!"

Rep Scott Des Jarlais, moral majority wingnut, was reelected even after admitting he had an multiple affairs and urged one of his mistresses to get an abortion.

Evangelical Christians are scum sucking hypocrites.

Republican laws: you have the freedom to do what they tell you to.

Remember truth justice and the American way?

The republicans think justice is a bad thing, truth is just another opinion, and the American way is way way way back

He's anti-abortion, but at least he believes in exemptions for his pregnant mistresses. Who said Republicans don't have standards?

This guy could be the poster child for about every liberal narrative ever thought up about affluent right wing white male politicians.

If men got pregnant, abortion would be legal everywhere.

Then there is selling baby parts to the highest corporate bidder.... sooo

Of course women should be controlled.

Women have weak leg muscles. It takes a man to decide when the legs should be open and when they should be closed.

If women had control, those legs would be open all the time.

It's in the bible..."Let she without closed legs cast the first baby... in a glass house."

Anti-abortion rep is okay with wife/mistress/daughter having an abortion.
Anti-gun rep has bodyguards who carries gun, or even carries one him/herself.
Anti-climatechange rep has own personal jet and a large carbon footprint.
Anti-gay rep has a wide stance.

Hypocrites the lot of them.
