Another Case for Limiting Reproductive Rights

I've commented on people's names for their kids before, but this is just breathtaking.

The father of 3-year-old Adolf Hitler Campbell, denied a birthday cake with the child's full name on it by one New Jersey supermarket, is asking for a little tolerance.

The Campbells' other two children also have unusual names: JoyceLynn Aryan Nation Campbell turns 2 in a few months and Honszlynn Hinler Jeannie Campbell will be 1 in April.

Socially tone deaf cluelessness doesn't begin to describe this.

Heath Campbell said he named his son after Adolf Hitler because he liked the name and because "no one else in the world would have that name." He sounded surprised by all the controversy the dispute had generated.

Those kids have an uphill road ahead, not just because of the names, but because they're being raised by someone who would give them those names.
