Obama Declares Gitmo Detainees ‘Fetuses’
Scott Ott‘s latest parody news story:
In an effort to shut down the U.S. Naval Detention Center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, thereby restoring America’s moral standing in the world, President Barack Obama today declared some 240 enemy combatants held at Gitmo to be ‘human fetuses’.
In an executive order, the president said, “Since I ordered Gitmo shut down, and people don’t want us to bring the inmates here, the only way to extract them from the facility is to change their legal status to one that offers us more choices.”
More at the Examiner; the rest is rather less funny given the nature of abortion. Personally, I support human rights for both fetuses and accused terrorists but Scott’s juxtaposition about the blithe acceptance of one and the frenzied reaction to the other is apt.
