Larsen protests a bit too much

SHARE: facebook Twitter icon Linkedin icon Google+ icon Email icon |  PRINTER-FRIENDLY  |  COMMENTS
On Tuesday, Rep. Rick Larsen sent out a strongly-worded e-mail attacking Republicans who voted to restrict abortions after five months of gestation because numerous studies have shown that babies even as young as four months feel pain. (HR 1797 had exceptions, e.g., rape, incest, life of mother.) Larsen claims that protecting babies is "a scheme to avoid working on improving the economy." But the truth is, Larsen didn't vote against HR 1797 -- he didn't vote at all.
