10 Differences Between Having An Abortion And Killing Grandma

In this week’s most exciting fallacy, professional Smurf Mike Huckabee is drawing a very confused parallel between abortion and murdering the elderly. According to Talking Points Memo, Huckabee argued that “[t]he same logic that leads women to get an abortion could justify ending the life of an elderly person who has become an inconvenience.” Then he slammed us with some rhetoric:

As you may have heard if you utilize the Internet whatsoever, Lindsay Lohan has a brand new reality show on Oprah‘s network, OWN. It’s ostensibly about her redemption after getting a bunch of DUIs, allegedly stealing from others, and spending a rather remarkable amount of money, but in reality (ha), it’s still just another program where nothing feels genuine and the characters are, well, characters.
