Missouri Republican official: ‘God chose to bless’ women with pregnancies from rape
August 21, 2012 |
Suggesting that rape can be a blessing is so off the wall bat shit crazy that nobody should be shocked when most Americans simply refuse to vote Republican. The social conservatives literally terrify most Americans even if they do control the Republican Party.
An official from Missouri’s Republican Party on Monday defended Senate candidate Todd Akin after he suggested abortions should not be allowed in any case because victims of “legitimate” rape victims could not get pregnant.
GOP 4th Senate District Committeewoman Sharon Barnes told The New York Times “that abortion is never an option.”
In an interview with KTVI-TV over the weekend, Akin had said that “the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down,” referring to pregnancy after so-called “legitimate rape.”
Barnes “echoed Mr. Akin’s statement that very few rapes resulted in pregnancy,” according to the Times, and she added that “at that point, if God has chosen to bless this person with a life, you don’t kill it.”
