Bachmann worries women's museum honoring her will become "shrine to abortion" [VIDEO]

Bachmann speaks during yesterday's hearing.
A website for the proposed National Women's History Museum devotes a page to honoring Michele Bachmann for being a great mother. Nonetheless, yesterday Bachmann was one of just 33 representatives to vote against a bill that would do nothing more than create a bipartisan commission to study the possible construction of a women's museum on the National Mall in D.C. (383 representatives voted in favor.)

"As it's currently written, the legislation lacks the necessary safeguards to ensure that the proposed museum will not become an ideological shrine to abortion that will eventually receive federal funding and a prominent spot on the National Mall," Bachmann said on the House floor.

In making her case, Bachmann cited the fact that the same website that honors her also honors Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger.

"She's an abortion trailblazer and she is the founder of Planned Parenthood, which this body has sought to defund," Bachmann said. "I find Margaret Sanger's views highly offensive and yet she is featured over and over again as a women to extoll on this website and ultimately in this museum."

Long story short, unless the museum is committed to honoring God-fearing, all-American conservative women like her and nobody else, Bachmann won't support the creation of a committee to merely talk about it, let alone an actual museum.

"I rise today in opposition to this bill because I believe ultimately this museum that will be built on the National Mall, on federal land, will enshrine the radical feminist movement that stands against the pro-life movement the pro-family movement and the pro-traditional marriage movement," Bachmann said.
