Tommy Tuberville not sure what to make of the implications of his purportedly deeply held worldview

The most intellectually representative member of the Republican Senate caucus has some Deep Thoughts about his state’s Supreme Court holding that IVF procedures are illegal because God doesn’t like them:

U.S. Sen. Tommy Tuberville, R-Ala., appeared to give contradictory statements Thursday on the Alabama Supreme Court decision ruling frozen embryos are “children,” saying he was “all for” the ruling but “we need more kids.”

“I was all for it,” Tuberville told reporters following his appearance at CPAC in Washington, D.C. “We need to have more kids, we need to have an opportunity to do that, and I think this was the right thing to do.”

Reporters told Tuberville that the ruling had the opposite effect — causing IVF treatments to pause at several Alabama facilities.

Asked if he was concerned on the impact the decision would have on Alabama families trying to have children, Tuberville responded, “That’s for another conversation…we need more kids, we need more people to have the opportunity to have more kids.”

“That’s a hard one, it really is,” the senator said, “because again, you want people to have that opportunity. … we need more kids.”

Asked to clarify his remarks, Tuberville spokeswoman Hannah Eddins gave AL.com this statement:

“Sen. Tuberville was emphasizing his support for life at all stages. In addition to being pro-life and believing life begins at conception, Senator Tuberville is also pro-family. He believes strong families are instrumental to our country’s success,” Eddins said. “In no way was he supporting the reaction from various medical facilities to cancel IVF procedures in the wake of the Alabama Supreme Court’s ruling. He supports the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision overturning Roe to return decisions surrounding life back to the states, which allows constituents to have a say in these significant decisions at the ballot box.”

“I would like to be clear that IVF is murder, and also it’s outrageous that the Critical Queer Race Theory communists at hospitals should not stop them. Is that clear enough for you?” I’m sure Donald Trump will come up with a much more coherent response, though.
