They want to believe something so badly they can twist anything to their purpose.
Today's example: over at Big Blue Batshittery, SHE links to this profile of the guy who thinks violated vaginas produce spermicide.
Here is the entire post.
I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Jack Willke two years ago at a pro-life conference.Willke had to 'investigate' the question of whether a fetus is human.
One of the things that he said that surprised me the most was that when [he] studied medicine way back in the 1950's, he did not know whether a fetus was a human life.
He had to investigate the question and come to his own conclusion on the matter, because it was not taught in medical school.
I think this ignorance of the unborn was what led to the legalization of abortion.
Henry Morgentaler would have studied medicine at about the same period. The two men are about the same age.
It could explain why Morgentaler had no qualms about performing abortions.
When he was in medical school.
'Way back' in the 1950s.
When, you know, medical knowledge was so feeble that scientists managed only to develop the polio vaccine, medical ultrasonography, heart-lung machine, pacemaker, kidney transplants, and in vitro fertilization.
Oh, and they were working on the first oral contraceptive, which was approved in 1960.
Yup. Benighted times.
And medical schools were teaching We Really Aren't Sure What's in Those Big Bellies.
Which led to Willke's heroic investigation and Morgentaler's continuing ignorance.
And people who can believe that want to form a parliamentary committee, bring in 'experts', and debate When the State Takes Charge of Women's Uteruses.
This is why sane people say: We don't debate delusional nutbars.
