Boxer Plays The Penis Pill Card To Support Abortion Funding (video)

Senator Barbara Boxer equated taking Viagra with having an abortion in a bizarre twist of logic yesterday. Boxer was speaking against Sen. Ben Nelson’s (D-NE) amendment to prohibit federal funds from being used for abortion.

From the video:
BOXER: There’s nothing in this amendment that says if a man some days wants to buy Viagra, for example, that his pharmaceutical coverage cannot cover it, that he has to buy a rider. I wouldn’t support that. And they shouldn’t support going after a woman using her own private funds for her reproductive health care. Is it fair to say to a man you’re going to have to buy a rider to buy Viagra and this will be public information that could be accessed? No, I don’t support that. I support a man’s privacy, just as I support a woman’s privacy.

This comment really got the liberals stirred up over at Think Progress.
"Conservatives don’t need Viagra. We have beautiful, sexy women."

Interesting way of defending the govt's right to take away my money, and spend it killing babies.
