Bachmann: No Government Control Over My Body!

Stephen Elliot

Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), who is a a staunch champion of the religious right and an opponent of President Obama on all things under the sun, has a new line against the Democrats on health care: Keep the government off my body!

Bachmann appeared on Sean Hannity’s radio show on Tuesday, and check out what she said, at the 5:35 mark.

“That’s why people need to continue to go to the town halls, continue to melt the phone lines of their liberal members of Congress,” said Bachmann, “and let them know, under no certain circumstances will I give the government control over my body and my health care decisions.”

The irony here is that this same message is often used in American politics to mean something completely different — as a slogan of the pro-choice movement, to which Bachmann most certainly does not belong.
