The folks at are planning a nationwide Halloween shindig and everyone's invited to join in -- so long as you're willing to host and provide the following party favors: a torch, a canister of gasoline and a life-size stand-up of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. A video on the site, which is being promoted by Operation Rescue's Randall Terry, gives helpful step-by-step instructions for holding your very own effigy to the liberal politicians, reports RH Reality Check. The aim of orchestrating these simultaneous bonfires across the country is to protest healthcare reform, which they believe will force federally funded abortions.

Never mind that anti-abortion activists are using faulty and hypocritical logic to argue that the healthcare bill will necessarily lead to publicly funded abortions -- they're too busy talking fire and brimstone to consider such details. In the video below, an unidentified spokesperson wails at the camera, "If you support child killing, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid will be waiting for you in Hell!" Forget the Halloween costume, fella -- you're plenty ghoulish as is.
