It’s been a tough contest, and it’s still early, but an early contender for the Most Vile Idiot of the Year has to be MSNBC’s Melissa Harris-Perry.
If you’re not quite sure who she is, she’s the insufferable void who thought wearing tampons as earrings made some kind of cool, edgy statement.
While attempting to make a point about the merits of abortion on a recent MSNBC broadcast, Harris-Perry plumbed the depths of depraved and reckless scumbaggery, in an effort to prove how abortion is an economic necessity.
After breaking a model of a fertilized egg, she bumbled her way through an offensive, science-free screed about the origins of human life and the ultimate cost.
Transcript: Oh, no. That might be bad. I seemed to have popped open the fertilized egg. We’ll put that back together. But the very idea that this would constitute a person, right? And that some set of constitutional rights should come to this. Look, I get that that is a particular kind of faith claim. It’s not associated with science. But the reality is that if this turns into a person, right, there are economic consequences, right? The cost to raise a child, $10,000 a year up to $20,000 a year. When you’re talking about what it actually costs to have this thing turn into a human, why not allow women to make the best choices that we can with as many resources and options instead of trying to come in and regulate this process?
No, you hateful half-wit. The model you busted is not a living thing, but the actual fertilized egg is the building block of every human life that walks, or has walked, or will walk on this earth.
Recent science has even revealed an electric “spark” that occurs when the sperm and egg meet.
It’s a beautiful thing, and if you can quibble over costs and worth before life begins, how far away are we from making random assessments of life, after it has been birthed?
Seek help, Melissa. You’ve got a lot to learn about reproductive biology, and about just being a sane, decent human being.
