North Carolina senate candidate Greg Brannon (R)
When last we mentioned Republican North Carolina Senate candidate, obstetrician and general harbinger of doom Greg Brannon he was lifting his policy statements word-for-word from a Rand Paul website. Now we must mention him again, because he also seems to be lifting things from the deep pool of conservative Republican conspiracy theories that all modern candidates are required to lift things from.

Specifically, he's back to tell us that Australia and Planned Parenthood have a plan to kill three-month-old babies in Florida, because reasons.

Well how far will [it] go? Last year, February 29, 2012, the Journal of Ethics in Australia, they debated that. They said we already know abortion is fine, why stop in the womb? Why not three months after. Why should we end the responsibility at that point? It could happen in America. Florida's trying to do it right now and so is Georgia. Planned Parenthood. Because we allowed that slippery slope.
I did not know that. I would expect none of us knew that, not even in Greg Brannon's North Carolina, because unless you've crawled into Greg Brannon's head, there's no reason you would. Nonetheless, the slippery slope argument has come out, and it's only a matter of time before the various states decide that pregnancy continues three months after it ends, or 30 years after it ends, and that this means the state will kill you if by the age of 30 years old you have not gotten a job, gotten out of the house and stopped watching certain television programs. A list will be provided.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
