Missouri Republicans: Abortion causes illegal immigration!

Abortions reducing workforce, say wingnuts.
A Republican-led legislative panel in Missouri laid the blame for the nation's illegal immigration woes on abortion. According to the legislators, we wouldn't need immigrants if every fetus were allowed to become an American worker.

As zuzu notes at Feministe the US is not in fact hurting for workers. It's hurting for decent jobs in industries that currently exploit illegal immigrants.
