This week, we learn that in the real world, some abortion doctors are men like Charlotte, N.C.'s Dr. Ashutosh Virmani, who when surprised on July 26 by polite pro-life activists at his doorstep shouted that they should "adopt one of those ugly black babies" to save the taxpayers money.

"I, as a taxpayer, do not wish to pay for those babies to be born and brought up and kill those people in Colorado," Virmani said, referring to the Aurora, Colo., theater killer, who was a college-educated white man.

Virmani has been a donor to Democrat candidates and causes, although not (unsurprisingly!) to President Obama.

According to OpenSecrets, Virmani donated $200 to the DNC in December. A Democratic National Committee spokesman did not immediately reply to a question asking whether the organization will return Virmani's donation.
