I’m not even joking when I saw that it’s terrifying that people this stupid are either holding, or running for, fierily high political office in this country.

Apparently Rand Paul equates pro-choice with some evil eugenics program where fetuses are routinely wiped out if their genes are subpar or prone to diseases or, even worse, poverty. At least that’s what Rand Paul wants you to believe.

Unfortunately, rather than formulating some original ideas and organizing them into a…what’s it called?…speech, he decided to just lift the plot line of the movie directly from its Wikipedia page.
