Forcible Rape? by poasterchild Forcible Rape? by poasterchild

This past week, Americans were treated to the reactionary, misogynist right's view of reproductive biology, which apparently posits that women's Fallopian tubes go into spasm or something and defeat the sperm of forcible rapists, as if there were some other kind.

Congressman Todd Akin, who drew rebukes from every Republican worth mentioning, has a 90% positive rating from the national right to life organization, but that makes him a piker compared to GOP Vice Presidential candidate Congressman Paul Ryan, who draws a 100% positive rating. Their party stands on an abortion plank that calls for the total outlawing of the procedure, with no exception for the life or health of the mother, or for cases of rape or incest. The Republican Party is America's Taliban.

Now now, we all know that if it's real rape you can't get pregnant! /sarcasm

I actually live in Missouri, sooooooo this has been huge here. I'm so excited that I get the chance to vote against him in a few months lol

I also got to vote against John Ashcroft back in 2000 (he's from here too) and be part of a state that voted a dead man into office over him.
