Leslee Unruh Tightens Her Tinfoil Hat On Fox News

Leslee is here to protect all womankind from the evil plot of big pharma and pesticides to steal your children and babies by selling the pill. We couldn't make this shit up if we tried.

According to Leslee:
The big pharma illuminati is playing god
Women must be protected from big pharma
The pill and big pharma is a war on women, children and babies
Big pharma wants you to be like men
Planned Parenthood is in on the evil plan too
If you take the pill you will be forever unable to have children

This was where her bullshit became too much for even Fox News to tolerate. They called her on her claim that the pill would cause permanent infertility. There was also something about big pharma and pesticides being put into your body.

Then Leslee cuts into the discussion to announce she "wants more babies..more babies..we love babies.

Watch it here for yourself. We think this one outdoes her post election meltdown.

Leslee Unruh, Death Dealer Extraordinaire

This comment to our blog was worthy of it's own post.

Big Liberal wrote:
I just wrote a research paper on why abstinence programs in Africa are a colossal failure.

Specifically, it seems that not only do abstinence programs not work, the program's "success" in decreasing the prevalence of HIV/AIDS in Uganda is a misnomer. It's true, Uganda has seen a drop in prevalence (the percentage of Ugandans who have the disease), but not so much in the incidence (the number of new infections).

AIDS relief workers on the ground there attribute the drop not to abstinence programs, but to an increase in the death rate.'s not that abstinence works; it's just that people are dying faster.

Thanks, Leslee.

Many studies have shown this. The fantasy world abstinence program that Leslee Unruh is trying to export in a fashion the colonial British would admire is killing people and killing them faster in Africa. Uganda is one of the countries Unruh's failed programs is actively running in.

These programs are so dangerous because they tell people false information about condom effectiveness and discourage their use. This is combined with a program based on western conservative protestant ideaology about sex and marriage. This simply does not fit with the reality of life in these areas of Africa that do not operate on Leslee's tiny ignorant world view. The nature of relationships, sex, marriage and how women are treated in these regions is vastly different than it is in Iowa. The sum of all of this is that Leslee Unruh and her merry band of loonies are hastening and creating the deaths of more people in Africa while preventing the programs, tools and drugs that actually do prevent this from being implemented properly.

It does make one wonder if this is willfull ignorance or willfull punishment.
