Georgia Senator Channels Ceausescu

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]britzkrieg)

The Hartwell Sun has reported in passing on some disturbing comments made by Georgia Senator Nancy Schaefer. For those of you who don't know, Schaefer is one of the main driving forces behind anti-abortion and anti-contraception legislation in Georgia. Here she explains one of the reasons for her anti-choice stance:

50th District Senator Nancy Schaefer, who serves on the economic development committee, mentioned jobs, industry and tourism as issues needing attention. She said we need to "make Georgia a destination."

Commenting on illegal immigration, Schaefer said 50 million abortions have been performed in this country, causing a shortage of cheap American labor. "We could have used those people," she said.
In other words, abortion is bad because it depresses the birth rate, thereby reducing the number of poor people available to work sh*tty jobs.

You know what else can depress the birth rate? Birth control.

It sounds to me like Schaefer wants to try out Romanian dictator Ceausescu's failed population policies on Georgians. I'm sure she believes this would be God's will...

Update: See [info]wyldraven's comment below for background on Scheafer's dominionist philosophy.

This Just In: Schaefer states the same thing in a newspaper editorial: "I am convinced [illegal immigration] is a consequence to the almost 50 million children we have put to death in their mother's womb through abortion. The large unfilled job market in Georgia would not be a problem if the almost 50 million Americans were here filling many of those jobs." You can't make this sh*t up!
