The Morning Rant

"The other day, I saw some progressive twitter lunatic spewing her idiocy to the world at large which consisted of her shouting 'Fetal tissue is not a person' over and over again like a 2-year-old throwing a tantrum as if repetition would somehow make it true. Because, actually, it is. A person, I mean. A fetus has its own body, as defined by its own DNA, which is not the same as the DNA of either parent. It has a gender. It's not long before it has brain waves, a beating heart, blood, unique fingerprints, and a functioning nervous system. About the only thing it doesn't have is a birthday. Yet. Of course, if you're a progressive, I guess 'fetal tissue' doesn't become a person until it first votes for a Democrat."

(This is my favorite response to the idiot tweet.)
