“Doctor” Joe Walsh’s Ignorance on Women’s Health
Congressman Joe Walsh’s breathtaking ignorance of women’s health runs counter to science, medicine, and common-sense. Illinois families have been forced to develop a thick skin dealing with Congressman Joe Walsh’s temper tantrums, but last night was no cable-ready crack. Congressman Joe Walsh’s comments expose how Tea Party House Republicans have replaced reality and science with right-wing ideology that’s uninformed and dangerous to women’s health.
“It appears ‘Doctor’ Joe Walsh gets his information from the same elite medical school as Todd Akin,” said Haley Morris of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. “Sadly, Congressman Joe Walsh has betrayed a level of ignorance about women’s health that’s offensive, but far too common-place within the Tea Party. Although National Republicans are still standing behind Congressman Joe Walsh, Illinois voters will not tolerate his ignorance and extremism any longer.”
The National Republican Congressional Committee says that is standing behind Walsh despite his extreme beliefs.
