Republican Candidates on the Issue of Rape and Violence Towards Women

We know this is old news, but since the Republicans took both the House and the Senate, we have been spammed on this one blog entry. This morning, for example, we woke to over three hundred spams attached to this one entry. We’ve had to delete thousands of them. For that reason, we have taken the original off, copied and pasted and replaced it with this one.

If the Republicans are running that scared because of this one entry–then yes, we will put it up again and again and again.

Todd Akin, Republican candidate for Senate, Missouri: “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down,” he said.

Indiana Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock: “I think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen.”

Rep. Joe Walsh, R-Ill., said he is against abortion “without exception,” even in cases of rape, incest, and when the life of the mother is in danger. When asked by reporters if he means that it’s never medically necessary to save a pregnant woman’s life, Walsh said “absolutely.”
