Meet Bob FitzSimmonds. He is a former aide and friend to Virginia Republican gubernatorial nominee Ken Cuccinelli and he's the Treasurer of the Republican Party of Virginia.
He has some crazy ideas when it comes to reproductive rights and human sexuality - well, crazy only if you're not a Virginia Republican.
“I’m not a big fan of contraception, frankly. I think there are some issues, we’re giving morning-after pills to 12-year-olds, and pretty soon I guess we’ll hand them out to babies, I don’t know.”
“I believe that we don’t recognize the causal effect between the type of sex education that we’ve been giving and the spread of STDs. We focus on things like abortion, cause it’s a big pressure thing. I go into schools 15-20 times a year, I run a non-profit that goes into schools and talks to kids about sex. They’re all abortion and HIV. HIV’s kind of hard to catch. Abortion happens if you get pregnant. But we’re on the track for 50 percent of the American people to have Herpes by the time these kids are my age. And that is a profound — not only health but sociological crisis facing this country.”
