Republican Leader Defends Forced Abortions
What a headline, eh? Well, it's apparently true. DeLay supported and defended a sweatshop in the Marianas islands that, along with 90 hour work-weeks and third world wages, supplied beatings and forced abortions to its workers. But DeLay got a bunch of money and a nice trip from Jack Abramoff, a lobbyist and apparently close friend, to say that everything was peachy-keen in the Marianas and in that sweatshop in particular. And to stop a law that would have forced the sweatshop to treat its workers like humans instead of slaves. DeLay took the money.
