Rep. Louise Slaughter Accuses GOP Freshmen of Coming to Washington to ‘Kill Women’
Welcome to another episode of our chronicles of ‘Democrats Behaving Badly’ …and saying stupid and deeply offensive things.
Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-N.Y.) said today that the new Republicans elected to the House of Representatives last November came to Congress “to kill women.” Then, just in case that wasn’t offensive enough, she likened all Republican lawmakers to ‘Nazis’.
She made the remarks Wednesday on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., at a “Stand Up for Women’s Health” rally sponsored by the National Organization for Women, NARAL and Planned Parenthood.

Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-N.Y.) said today that the new Republicans elected to the House of Representatives last November came to Congress “to kill women.” She also likened Republican efforts to prohibit federal funding of abortion except in cases of rape, incest or where the life of the mother is endangered to actions taken by Nazis.“This is probably one of the worst times we’ve seen because the numbers of people elected to Congress. I went through this as co-chair of the arts caucus,” Slaughter said. “In ’94 people were elected simply to come here to kill the National Endowment for the Arts. Now they’re here to kill women.”
