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.
