Lawmaker Compares Abortion to Buying a Car

Missouri state Rep. Chuck Gatschenberger (R) defended his controversial bill forcing women to have ultrasounds before abortions by comparing abortion to purchasing a new vehicle, the Huffington Post reports.

Said Gatschenberger: "In making a decision to buy a car, I put research in there to find out what to do."

He added that his legislation would make a woman "research" her decision before having an abortion -- a move he said would "increase the odds that she will choose life for her unborn baby."
