Rep. Steve Stockman, who bills himself as the most conservative congressman in Texas, is promoting a new campaign bumper sticker that suggests fetuses should employ their Second Amendment rights.
The outspoken House Republican has threatened to “blue-slip,” or procedurally kill any gun-control measure that comes over from the Senate. On Friday, he upped the ante by promoting a bumper sticker that reads: “If babies had guns, they wouldn’t be aborted. Vote Pro-Life.”
On Twitter, Mr. Stockman repeatedly promoted the simple blue sticker with white lettering, deeming it “the sticker liberals hate!” His official account says donors can get a sticker for every $10 they dole out at his campaign website.
“Liberals will criticize an abortion bumper sticker, but refuse to criticize an abortionist who killed seven live infants. Exposed hypocrisy,” he tweeted, a reference to the trial of a Philadelphia-area doctor that has become a rallying cry for conservatives because of a perceived lack of coverage in the mainstream media.
