Bachmann: Obama Will Limit How Many Babies You Can Have [VIDEO]

Bachmann: Obama Will Limit How Many Babies You Can Have [VIDEO]

Oh, Michele Bachmann….when you left the presidential race, you also left a big gaping hole in our lives that needed to be filled with anti-government conspiracy theories and religious right paranoia.

But now, the Minnesota congresswoman and former GOP presidential candidate is back.  And she’s claiming that President Barack Obama and his administration will put a cap on how many babies you and your family can have.

Global overpopulation is our number one problem. We have become a plague upon the planet. This is why the rainforests are being cleared, to provide more living space for ever more humans, this is why we will soon have fished the seas dry. There are too many mouths to feed. If we don't do it, mother nature will do it for us but indiscriminately, levelling our numbers by virus to the point that our systems and societies will collapse and we will enter a new dark age. Either we make this last taboo a subject to be brought into the open and thought about logically, or it will be taken out of our hands and we'll be managed by man's greatest adversary, virus. One child per family. One child receieves child benefit (here in the UK) any more, and you should be taxed accordingly. More people need more land, more houses, more water, more food, more airports, more cars. Climate change? It does happen anyway over the eons, but we're now accelerating the fastest mass extinction of animals the planet has ever seen. And we think we are immune to this? 7 billion souls. Whilst we all are unique, should be loved and nurtured and cherished, it is not an achievement. Its a catastrophic failure to address a problem. Stop being so prissy about sex and wake up and discuss this!!

About time humanity did something on overpopulation!

Um, hello? ME-chelle Bachmann, who thinks that abortion should be outlawed, sex education banned, and that poor parents ought not have more children to raise on welfare is complaining about this? Is it irony or hypocrisy?

Are you aware of the population today. People are pumping out babies left and right and then end up on the welfare roles. Limiting the number of children people can have should have been done decades ago.

I don't a government should be able to mandate how many children a person or couple can have but I do believe the government needs to stop rewarding those who continue to have one child after another. Give a nice tax break for couples who have no children, have one child, have two children, then tax the hell out of others for over 2 children. I say grandfather in pre-existing children, but start now.

Maybe this is a good idea since the world is overcrowded. Also I think prospective parents should have parent training as this is the hardest job any of us will ever have.

It's difficult to believe Michele Bachmann is as deluded as her statements appear to be. It's much likelier she's a clever shill spouting disingenuous drivel written for her by her Republican handlers. Imagine President Obama turning the U.S. into China and a 1-child policy; imagine forced abortions for couples who violate the rule. Bachmann and her kind want to humiliate and degrade women by sticking a vaginal ultrasound wand into every pregnant woman's uterus and forcing a pregnancy to be carried to term. While Bachmann sees nothing wrong with shoving her "Christian" propaganda down every woman's throat, i.e., abortion is a sin, she doesn't consider it government intruding on a citizen's right to choose. The federal government does not pay for my medical insurance. My employer and I share the cost, and I pay dearly each month for a PPO plan. No American President will ever tell me what I can or can't do under the terms of my health insurance policy nor have they ever offered to share the cost. But the Republicans will keep trying to turn back the hands of time to the days when women were treated as second-hand citizens and had to go into back rooms of cheap motels to terminate a pregnancy, whether it occurred as a result of incest, rape or for any other reason. For those who believe in God, let their God judge them for their actions in this respect. Everyone else, get out of my face and my life. It's none of your damned business.

I haven't missed her, I wish she'd go back into her corner.

12:07AM PDT on Mar 13, 2012

LOL!! What goofiness! I think all of that hairspray has damaged her brain cells!

Anyone who does not understand that we only have so much room and resources and we are breeding faster than rabbits and of the 4 billion or so people, 3.5 are careless about resources and climate change and not all that bright...please someone control the population explosion!I do not care if you are a man, a woman, a republican or democrat or you are black white pink green...just stop filling this planet with people. We have plenty. Let's give some other of GODS CREATURES some space, food, consideration.
