"Never mind the vicious nonsense of claiming that an embryo has a 'right to life.' A piece of protoplasm has no rights--and no life in the human sense of the term. One may argue about the later stages of a pregnancy, but the essential issue concerns only the first three months. To equate a potential with an actual, is vicious; to advocate the sacrifice of the latter to the former, is unspeakable."

-- Novelist Ayn Rand, the object of presumptive Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryans's impure affections, speaks freely about reproductive rights. The socially-conservative, Catholic congressman from Wisconsin boasts a rating of 0 percent from the National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League (NARAL) for displaying an anti-choice voting record.
