How Are Pro-Lifers Being Pro-Life Today?

[TRIGGER WARNING: VIRAL INFECTIONS, DEATH, EXTREME RACISM]

Oh, nothing, just a pro-life Republican saying that we should literally kill every person who tests positive for ebola. Because it's "humane." Even though ebola is not at all 100% fatal. His defense for this? "Math."

[Ableist language censored]

Twitter Conversation
[Tweet text - @Tucker_Madison: @Todd_Kincannon Really quite (redacted). Ebola Zaire is 90% fatal. This outbreak is Sudan (?) and 50% fatal. U want to euthanize @ 50/50?

@Todd_Kincannon: .@Tucker_Madison How many new infections are there per victims? If the number is more than 1, euthanize at 50/50. That's just math.]

So, even though patients have a 50/50 chance of survival, kill them all, because they might infect people.

If you think that's the worst of his tweets on the subject, I have bad news for you. 

"Pro-life."
