Remember That 'Hilarious' South Park Episode Where Christopher Reeve Eats an Aborted Baby?
What if baby parts could cure… malnutrition?
This week on The Five, Greg Gutfeld has been at his brilliant, acerbic best while skewering Planned Parenthood and its ghoulish defenders. But he has gone farther than just the baby-parts issue to the core of the life debate.
Gutfeld’s best point: To Planned Parenthood babies are garbage, but baby parts are precious.
This just about drove Juan Williams over the edge, and he started shouting, which he always does when he has no point to make (and maybe doesn’t believe the point he is making), and deflecting by saying “this has become political!” (ditto).
“It’s not a baby, it's fetal tissue!”
Juan pulled out the medical research talking point, trying to get all weepy and listing diseases that are supposedly cured by fetal-tissue research, even though Dana Perino has been pointing all week to this excellent Federalist article on why the same research can be done without chopping up babies.
To which Greg challenged a stunned and stuttering Juan, “What if they suffer from malnutrition? Perhaps they should eat the baby!”
Juan was shocked at the suggestion, acting bewildered; Kimberly Guilfoyle patiently tried to explain it to him before giving up in a rare display of personal disgust.
Despite having stumped the band a few times with cultural references in this show, Greg seemed to forget that his subconscious probably dredged up the classically fearless South Park episode "Krazy Kripples" from 2003, in which Christopher Reeve literally eats aborted babies in order to regain his legs.
Reeve became the poster boy for fetal medical research in the early part of the millennium, following his 1995 horseback riding accident that left him a quadriplegic.
