Study: Congressmen w/ Daughters More Likely to be Pro-Abortion . . . or Pro-Choice Congressmen More Likely to Have Slutty Daughters
By Debbie Schlussel
In a bizarre liberal study marking Father’s Day, Yale researchers found that male Congressmen with daughters are more likely to vote for “reproductive rights”–the sanitized phrase for abortion:
The findings, an update to a study published last year by the National Bureau of Economic Research, also show that the more daughters a congressman had, the more likely he was to vote for reproductive rights, says Ebonya Washington, an assistant economics professor at Yale.
Her new research, not yet published, expands on an analysis she did of roll-call votes during the 105th Congress in 1997-98 when she examined family composition and compared the data with voting records compiled by other groups. She used rankings by the National Organization for Women, based on votes on 20 women’s issues such as equal rights, women’s safety, economic security, education, health and reproductive rights. She also reviewed voting data from the National Right to Life Committee.
Her new analysis included congressional votes through 2004 and added information from another group: the American Association of University Women. She again found voting record support for a daughter-to-father influence.
The conclusion they want you to get from this is that pro-life Congressmen are insensitive to women and don’t have contact with any.
But I’d draw a different conclusion: Congressmen who are liberal are more likely to have slutty daughters. And therefore, they are more likely to support abortion for selfish, personal reasons.
Another conclusion: If you are pro-life, don’t vote for candidates with daughters.
Yale’s contribution to society.
