Colorado State Rep. Blames Planned Parenthood For Domestic Terrorist Attack At Their Clinic

Rep. JoAnn Windholz represents the 30th District in Colorado’s state legislature.

Does John Stossel Not Like Babies?

When I was a kid, I used to always watch whatever it was my grandma was watching, though usually detached.

No, this isn’t satire – although it’s triggered by a sarcastic response to anti-abortion protesters.
