Post-Gazette reported that a Pennsylvania Republican who's always been anti-abortion, as his voting record confirms, told his mistress to get an abortion. The messages proving that were obtained by the Post-Gazette. The Republican congressman in question is Tim Murphy.

The woman, for a reason, accused Murphy of hypocrisy in January after the congressman posted an anti-abortion message to his Facebook account. She said "You have zero issue posting your pro-life stance all over the place when you had no issue asking me to abort our unborn child just last week when we thought that was one of the options."

Murphy's response? "I get what you say about my March for life messages. I've never written them. Staff does them. I read them and winced. I told staff don't write any more. I will."

How much of an idiocy is this? Although, it kind of fits into the current political climate in the US perfectly. Abortion is a bad, bad thing, just until you feel it's the right thing to do.

Muprhy has a strong, 100% anti-abortion voting record. But it seems it's something he only votes for to get the backing of the anti-abortion groups, he actually thinks abortion is great.
