Colorado State Senator (D-Bag)

[Don't be confused by the title of this post, this guy's a Republican.]

Via Political Wire:

"A Republican legislator in Colorado opposed a bill requiring pregnant women to be tested for HIV, so that if they are infected their babies can be treated to prevent the transfer of the virus, the Rocky Mountain News reports.

But it was his reasoning that sparked outrage.

Said state Sen. Dave Schultheis (R): 'This stems from sexual promiscuity for the most part, and I just can't go there. We do things continually to remove the consequences of poor behavior, unacceptable behavior, quite frankly. I'm not convinced that part of the role of government should be to protect individuals from the negative consequences of their actions.'"
Wow. Sorry for the lack of nuance here, but what a piece of crap excuse for a human being.

So, if I understand his argument correctly, babies should get AIDS because preganant women are promiscuous? Tell me one thing that isn't wrong with that logic.

Seriously though, this type of thinking is so willfully, dangerously ignorant that it boggles the mind.

Pardon me, folks. This is for Mr. Schultheis: Go #&@# yourself, state Senator.

What a sh*tbag!
By the way, the idiot is wrong on virtually every count. Where does he get off even assuming that a pregnant woman who has HIV must have been promiscuous? I bet it would be interesting to see stats on how many unfortunate women have been infected because their lying/cheating husbands/lovers were the promiscuous ones. Typical holier-than-thou douchebaggery by this a-hole.
