January 30, 2014 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Millions of Americans were touched when Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers called her Down syndrome child “a gift from God” in the Republican response to the State of the Union address, but one feminist comedienne wanted to reach out and touch Rodgers.
Laura Levites (pronounced “LOVE-itis”) took to Twitter to threaten the Washington Republican with death and cannibalization.
“I want to rip out the uterus of that pro life c— Cathy McMorris Rodgers and eat it, so I can see the surprised look on her frigid face,” she wrote. You may view the original tweet here. (Warning: profanity.)
Congresswoman McMorris Rodgers' offense was talking about the moment she and her husband found out that their son Cole, now six, had Down syndrome.
“When we looked at our son, we saw only possibilities,” she said. “We saw a gift from God.”
She went on to say that all Americans, “whether we are born with an extra 21st chromosome or without a dollar to our name,” should not be “defined by our limits but by our potential.”
Levites' comments drew immediate backlash.
“You sound like Jeffrey Dahmer,” one reader replied. But the obscure comedienne reveled in the attention and rebuffed any notion that she had gone too far:

Her position led one reader to say, “Women like Laura Levites aren't pro-choice. They're abortion enthusiasts.” They have “no respect for life or women who choose it. Sad.”
