|Georgia state Rep. Terry England compared women to farm animals while discussing an abortion measure on the Georgia state house floor.
The republican lawmaker was commenting on HB 954 -- a measure which would prohibit a woman from having an abortion after 20 weeks of pregnancy -- when he made the curious comparison, according to The Raw Story.
"Life gives us many experiences," England explained. "I've had the experience of delivering calves, dead and alive -- delivering pigs, dead and alive. " It breaks our hearts to see those animals not make it."
England went on to tell the story of a man who expressed his concern about abortion with his own animal metaphor.
"[The man] said, "Mr. Terry, I want to tell you something. You tell those folks down there when they quit killing babies, they can have every chicken I've got,'" England said.
