Todd Akin and Paul Ryan believe only SOME rape is legitamiteon August 20, 2012 at 7:04 am
“First of all, from what I understand from doctors, (pregnancy from rape) is really rare, If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. But let’s assume that maybe that didn’t work or something. I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be on the rapist and not attacking the child.”
His apology some hours later found him not correcting his ignorance but doubling down on the real issue.
“But I believe deeply in the protection of all life and I do not believe that harming another innocent victim is the right course of action.”
Sure Todd Akin just handed the Missouri Senate race to Democrat Claire McCaskill, but the even bigger story is the Akin connection to Paul Ryan.
Not only will the two of them do everything in their power to ensure that a big intrusive government will force women to give birth to children conceived from rape, deny them any funding in birth control, but these soul brothers authored HR 3 which removed any federal funds to poor women to terminate their pregnancies due to rape and incest. But even that is not the crux of the Ryan Akin brotherhood. It is that Paul Ryan co sponsored that bill which used the words that set this all in motion. “Legitimate rape.”
BTW, the sex act produces a 5% pregnancy rate no matter it be consensual, rape, legitimate rape, or illegitimate rape. So how do these KIND of people come up with all this ignorant swill?
