It's from NRO -- so let me guess: You guys keep saying Rape with our candidates, and people don't like rape. Stop!

/nevermind that it kinda started when a GOP candidate derped himself in front of a camera....it's all the Dem's fault.

Lost in the controversy and political fallout over Representative Todd Akin's comments about a rape exception to abortion is the fact that the most eloquent defenders of the value of every human life are people like my friends Ryan Bomberger and Rebecca Kiessling, both of whom were conceived in rape.

OUTRIGHT LIES!!! Steve King - (R-eallyfarking stupid) says this doesn't happen.

One of the many problems with Roe v. Wade is that a few Supreme Court justices decided for us all how abortion would be handled - and then they locked out of public discussion an important conversation about how we should defend life.

That's what SCOTUS does, you dumb fark. How do you feel about Citizens United, a ruling that GIVES life to non-living entities?

Sorry illiterate assholes. I'm not familiar with this "Democrat party" of which you speak.

Maybe try learning the proper name before you pieces of gibbering hill-trash consider speaking.

You could say exactly the same thing about District of Columbia v. Heller and gun control.

My guess is that this crapfest deflects attention away from Romney's missing tax returns.

Where are the Swiftboat Veterans for Tax Return Truth when you need them?

Not that I'm trying to defend NRO here, but that term wasn't used in the article, so it's Subby who either (1) is the piece of gibbering hill-trash to whom you were referring, or (2) was trolling. Or perhaps both.

NRO is about one more psychotic breakdown away from publishing, without absolute sincerity, the headline "Why Do All These Homosexuals Keep Sucking My Cock?"

It must be tough to be a Republican shill these days. They're doing their best to deflect blame from their latest disaster, but it's a losing battle.

The Republicans never really mean stop when they say it.

Look, Republicans you guys keep bringing up rape like you're being recruited into an outlaw gang on a Mel Brooks movie.

Some people believe there's a magical man in the sky who installs tiny little souls into each egg the very nanosecond a sperm touches it. It's a cosmic tragedy if this process is interrupted, and these people wish to impose that belief on everyone else, regardless of the consequences to the person or people who had their own tiny little souls installed many years prior.

I will give the Republicans this: they will spin ANYTHING no matter how many lies or batshiat insanity it takes.
 
2012-08-21 04:36:25 PM  
Wow. I honestly expected that NRO would be smart enough to keep quiet on this one. I mean, who gets into an argument on the good side of rape??

I can imagine the high school Oxford debate club. "Okay class, we're going to debate rape. Who wants to be pro? Who wants to be con?"

The vast majority of women have abortions without being informed of the real risks they are taking upon themselves. The reality is that abortion-on-demand has hurt women - real women like Tonya Reeves who died recently following an abortion in Planned Parenthood's Chicago abortion clinic on the elegant Michigan Avenue.

They aren't informed of the real risks - like a woman carrying a baby to term is 14 times more likely to die than a woman who chooses to have a legal abortion?


A pamphlet given out in Texas lists more complications for abortion than it does for pregnancy, he explained. "Someone without a medical background might infer that abortion is more dangerous than continuing a pregnancy," he said. Link

Oh wait, you're right. They aren't being informed of the real risks.

Some sad souls need something they can always be absolutely right about all day, every day, an overarching truth they can cling to, a simple idea they can espouse and support and fill their empty lives with.

Which would be great if they weren't dead wrong.

The politicization of "women's health" has almost completely obscured the victimization of women in abortion clinics across the country...

The victimization of women in abortion clinics involves: Unnecessary sonograms that will not be covered under insurance plans; mandatory descriptions of the fetus that must be heard; forced waiting periods in excess of what a medical professional deems appropriate; having the medical professionals who provide those services threatened constantly to either be killed, be imprisoned, or have their medical licenses revoked. You know, all those things the Republican party has championed.

So, maybe SHUT THE F*CK UP about the victimization of women when the only victimization there is is coming ENTIRELY from your political party.

All the democrats have to do to counter it is PLAY AKINS' OWN WORDS.

If republicans would stop fixating on rape, no one would be pointing out how creepy it is.
 
2012-08-21 05:16:55 PM  
Abortion doesn't seem to be a hot button issue anymore anyway. I can't understand why this moron would try to dredge it back up. Even my son's grandparents who are evangelist to the core don't talk about it anymore. Sure they don't like it.. They hate the fact that women abort kids but they're not talking about it politically anymore. In fact the last time we had an abortion conversation was over 10 years ago. It's almost a non-issue.

"The politicization of rape by the Democratic Party has to stop," Republicans said.

"It's making us look bad!" they added...
 
2012-08-21 05:21:57 PM  
The election rules are perfectly clear: we are NEVER allowed to talk about anything that Republicans don't want to talk about.

That IS a law, isn't it?
 
2012-08-21 05:49:22 PM  
"Central to that conversation will be advancing the truth that to be pro-life is to be pro-woman".

Of course, no justification is given since its a truth.
 
2012-08-21 05:49:36 PM  
The Democrats will stop politicizing rape when the Republicans stop approving of rape.

No, you don't get it. Roe v. Wade forces women to have abortions! Just like in Chin-ow, I think I strained something from derping too hard.
 
2012-08-21 05:51:59 PM  
...my friends Ryan Bomberger and Rebecca Kiessling, both of whom were conceived in rape. Today Ryan and Rebecca are vibrant reminders of the truth that Life has value, no matter its beginnings.

Oh, well then in that case carry on. Obviously, every rape baby should be carried to term by force of law, because rape can be God's precious gift to a woman.

. fark you, Ms. Yoest.

Has Akin dropped out of the race yet? How much time is left?
 
2012-08-21 05:54:58 PM  
So does the guy behind the article actually mention what Akin did was atrocious or was it just a fart in the wind?

What is the Republican policy for people who are conceived in rape when those people become sick but don't have health insurance?

hold up. dint ryan and akin propose a bill in the house redefining rape?

but it's dems politicizing the issue

in any case, most things that affect people's lives are "politicized" issues

most things

Says the side that keeps trying to pass laws directly involving rape.
 
2012-08-21 06:01:03 PM  
Perhaps, one day, medical science will be able to remove a fertilized embryo and bring it to term in vitro, or in a surrogate mother. Then the baby can be adopted by someone who wants it and both sides of this debate can be happy.

Stopped reading at "profit-hungry abortion lobby".
 
2012-08-21 06:01:47 PM  
This article...

FTA: is the fact that the most eloquent defenders of the value of every human life are people like my friends Ryan Bomberger and Rebecca Kiessling, both of whom were conceived in rape.

Translation: "Some of my best friends are rape-babies!"

FTA: and the way in which a profit-hungry abortion lobby fights any protections for women

Translation: "When I say "protection" I mean what I deem women should be allowed to have. Because poor, little women can't make decisions for themselves. They'll hurt their tiny, little heads."

FTA: The reality is that abortion-on-demand has hurt women - real women

Translation: "Real women = not sluts"

FTA: We stand with China, North Korea, and Canada in having the most radical abortion policies in the world

Translation: "OMG! Allowing abortion makes us buddies with Commies, dictators and Socialists!"

And while Sarah Palin was governor, Alaska passed a law making rape victims pay for their own rape kits. Cause this doesn't seem like the type of thing taxpayer should be concerned about.

sorry but this is the kind of apathetic ignorance that the dominionists have counted on for their slew of anti-abortion laws since 2010 elections
