Republican Congressman Cory Gardner has been among the most fervent supporters of the concept that a fertilized egg enjoys the same rights as any person. He is known as the “Egg Congressman” because of his belief that every fertilized egg is protected by the United States Constitution. Rep Garner is now running for the US Senate seat in Colorado and has become upset at comments made by Senator Udall which apparently claim that Gardner does not support the rights of women. “My opponent Congressman Gardner led a crusade that would make birth control illegal, sponsored a bill to make abortion a felony, even in cases of rape or incest.” Pretty harsh words, if you ask me. So, what has been the response of Congressman Gardner?
“I was not right. I can’t support parenthood(for fertilized egg).” So, now that people in Colorado know that he has been wrong for years, what does he now propose? “One of the most rational ways for Washington to break this gridlock(over birth control) is to approve over the counter sales of contraceptives for adults.” We must praise this change of mind, who knows, perhaps tomorrow, Congressman Gardner will come out for gun control or a decent wage for those working or how about over-the-counter health care!
