Bubba and the zygote zealots

Bill Clinton kicks anti-choice ass!! During a speech at a rally for Hillary in Ohio last night, Bill Clinton was confronted by a few anti-choice protesters in the audience, who stood amid the crowd and brandished one of their goofy signs. Clinton responded:
“Even though she as a woman did not believe we should overturn Roe v. Wade,” he said, in defense of his wife, “she said – and she said again at the outset of this election – that every abortion is a tragedy and they should be more rare, but safe and legal. And I agree with her.”
"Safe, legal and rare" -- pretty simple, no? Apparently that's too difficult an equation for the fetus fetishists, who began to shout "What about pro-life?". Since Clinton had just finished stating his (and Hillary's) pro-choice position, one has to wonder: are these nitwits deaf in addition to being cataclysmically fucking stupid? An understandably frustrated Clinton let them have it with both barrels:
“I gave you the answer. We disagree with you. You want to criminalize women and their doctors and we disagree,” he said. “If you were really pro-life, you would want to put every doctor and every mother as an accessory to murder in prison. And you won’t say you wanna do that because you know that you wouldn’t have a lick of political support."
Pro-life? I got yer pro-life right here, motherfuckers! Yeah! Bubba, I love ya, babaaay!
