In a recent speech, Senator Rand Paul alleged that abortion rights in Virginia will lead to eugenics. But the exaggeration and hysteria of his claim weren't the speech's biggest problems: turns out, it was lifted straight from Wikipedia.
Rand Paul: “In the movie Gattaca––in the not-too-distant future, eugenics is common. And DNA plays a primary role in determining your social class.”
Wikipedia: “In the not-too-distant future, liberal eugenics is common and DNA plays the primary role in determining social class.”
