Video break: Michele Bachmann – "Sex Clinics" In Schools Will Result From Health Care Reform

Hat tip to Huff Post for this knee-slapper. How on earth does Michele Bachmann stop the draft between her ears?

Last night on the House floor, Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) spoke to Congress about “school based health clinics” (SBHC), labeling the clinics discussed in current House health care legislation as “sex clinics.” The conservative congresswoman suggested that if health care reform passes, the nation’s schools might begin offering abortions to students.

The bill goes on to say what’s going to go on — comprehensive primary health services, physicals, treatment of minor acute medical conditions, referrals to follow-up for specialty care — is that abortion? Does that mean that someone’s 13 year-old daughter could walk into a sex clinic, have a pregnancy test done, be taken away to the local Planned Parenthood abortion clinic, have their abortion, be back and go home on the school bus that night? Mom and dad are never the wiser.”

The legislation doesn’t mention abortion, btw; it’s a figment of her batsh*t imagination. She’s probably still flying high from being named one of the Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute’s “hot conservative women” for its 2010 calendar.

Can you name all of the [ugh] babes below…?
