Yesterday's “misspeak” by Missouri Congressman Todd Akin is not he first time that he has attacked women. The dipshit who coined the term “legitimate rape,” this past weekend, is also the same dumb ass who cosponsored HR358, otherwise known as the Let Women Die Bill, as well as another bill that literally attempted to change the definition of rape, before saner heads prevailed.
Guess who co sponsored and also voted for these two pieces of crap legislation? If you guessed Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan, you would be absolutely correct.
Ryan describes himself as “so pro life” that only the possible death of the mother would make him consider allowing an abortion. Ryan is against abortion in all instances including rape and incest. So much so, that he is willing to sign onto legislation designed to hurt women and women's health.
So when Akin said;
"From what I understand from doctors, that's really rare," Akin said of pregnancy resulting from rape. "If it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. But let's assume maybe that didn't work or something. I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be on the rapist."
You can believe he was also speaking for his buddy Paul Ryan. That's why he didn't see anything wrong with what he said, or that anyone else would take exception. For what it is worth, Romney/Ryan tried to distance itself from Akin's comments, but talk is cheap. They are bullshitting women and anybody else who is listening.
And don't let the fact that Paul Ryan brings his mother along on the campaign trail fool you. If Ryan is willing to use his own mother to lie about his politics, imagine what he plans for the rest of us.
Romney/ Ryan is a bad deal for America. Romney/Ryan is a disastrous combination for women, period. This ticket is willing to literally change the definition to do away with rape. You can read about that here, and it is very apparent that in their minds, there is no such thing as rape or incest, in the first place. And since women's bodies can naturally counteract pregnancies, there is no reason for birth control either, is there. Think about it, people.
The almighty and sacred sperm rules. End of discussion.
Vote responsibly in November.
