Or something. The healthcare debate is making movement conservatives completely unhinged. Bachmann:

“That’s why people need to continue to go to the town halls, continue to melt the phone lines of their liberal members of Congress,” said Bachmann, “and let them know, under no certain circumstances will I give the government control over my body and my health care decisions.”

This is the sort of cognitive dissonance I have come to expect from movement conservatives….

    1. A fetus is not YOUR body, it’s an infant’s body.
    2. Aborting a fetus is not “a health care decision”; it’s a deliberate act of murder.
    3. Murder is illegal and immoral. God disapproves of it, very strongly. That’s in writing somewhere.

    Ergo, opposing government control of your health care has nothing to do with demanding government bans on abortion.

    Not that I’d actually make this argument, but I’m sure lots of people do. It isn’t cognitive dissonance to them.
