Legitimate Rape?

Rep. Aiken is so absurd as to believe that during a rape a womans body can prevent pregnancy on its own.
This is the problem when social conservative refuse to acknowledge facts in order to bolster thier positions on abortion and other social issues.
I also think he just lost a seat for the Republicans.
One they were indeed in contention for.
If this does not rally progressives and women to vote nothing will. Shalom

Nothing worse than the sound of a mind slamming closed! This guy is a moron and if he wins the seat in spite of all his mumblings, then I really have to wonder about all us women and our willingness to let a neanderthal like this put us back 100 years. OY!

His claims have no basis in facts.
With the untold number of women who have been sexually assualted his statements are insensitve and cruel.
What is the definition of legitamate rape? How hard you struggle?
There is enough guilt and shame involved with this brutal act.
Rep. Aikens statement only adds to the turmoil women who are assualted feel.
Plus the Fact that he is on the House Sceince Committee.
Now that is absurd and intolerable. Shalom

You're preachin' to the choir, Bro'!

I've never heard of "legitimate" rape before.......sounds like a bit of an oxy moron. O wait, I already said he was a moron. He sounds like the type who used to say, and he probably still does, "She wasn't raped, she asked for it, look how she's dressed." Or where she was or how late at night it was or she was walking alone, etc etc. Methinks we need to run this guy out of town on a rail. Tar & Feathers sounds time appropriate to his stance too.

He's an idiot, if he said that, and obviously doesn't speak for the majority of the conservatives.... or intelligent people in general .. imo

Not American, but on our news this morning they were discussing this. Unbelievable! I did think it was funny when they quoted a tweet by Clay Akins - "The only thing a woman's body will block is this guy's bid for an elected position", I thought that was clever.

I've heard it on radio this morning. You can't fix stupid, you know. I'm quite appalled that someone that dumb can go that far though...

The big problem we ahve in the USA with our 2 political parties is that they have become so polarized that people like Rep Aiken can spout this rhetoric with a straight face.
The fringe on both sides of the aisle control far too much of our national debates about issues like this.
Just sent his opponent a little donation to combat his stupidity. Shalom

The national and state Democratic Party gave him money to help him win a run off in the primaries.
They thought he would be the easier to beat than the other Republicans.
Looks as if they were right. Shalom
