Bill O'Reilly Plays Doctor

Memo to Bill: just because you like waving a falafel around women doesn't mean you can practice OB-GYN love with them:

On his radio show, Bill O'Reilly falsely claimed that it "is never the case" that a "mother's life is in danger" during pregnancy because "you can always have a C-section and do those kinds of things." In fact, several potential pregnancy complications, such as an ectopic pregnancy, which is "the leading cause of pregnancy-related deaths in the first trimester" or preeclampsia, which "affect[s] up to one in seven pregnant women" can threaten the life of a pregnant woman.

Salon's Rebecca Traister rightfully calls him an irresponsible moron.
