Ben Carson Reveals himself to be not only a self-righteous hypocrite but ignorant

Don’t be fooled by the non politician Ben Carson. He’s a self-righteous dunce.

Another God fearing person who wants to torture people as he revealed in the debate demonstrates here his tin-eared dogma on woman…



www.slate.com...
Last week, it was revealed that Ben Carson had done research on fetuses obtained from the very abortions he would like to ban women from accessing. But being a known hypocrite hasn't slowed the retired neurosurgeon and current GOP presidential candidate down one bit when it comes to casting judgment on women. On the contrary, Carson had a moment on Neil Cavuto’s Fox News show last week that should rival Todd Akin’s infamous “legitimate rape” moment, both in terms of ugliness to women and ignorance of biology.
When asked by Cavuto on Wednesday whether he supported exceptions for rape and incest in his proposed ban on abortion, Carson, like Akin before him, tried to argue that such exceptions weren't really necessary. “I would hope that they would very quickly avail themselves of emergency room,” Carson argued, referring to rape victims. “And in the emergency room, they have the ability to administer, you know, RU-486, other possibilities, before you have a developing fetus.”






As with Akin, it's hard even to know where to begin. The biological ignorance on display here is astounding. RU-486, commonly known as the “abortion pill,” would not be given to a rape victim in an emergency room. The pill can only work on established pregnancies and is usually administered at abortion clinics. The pill Carson is likely thinking of is emergency contraception, which, as its name would suggest, prevents conception in the first place. Anti-choicers who don't like the idea of women having post-sex contraception have frequently claimed that emergency contraception works by killing embryos, but in reality, it works by suppressing women’s ovulation so no conception can occur while she has the live sperm in her system. That Carson, who is an actual doctor, would conflate the two is particularly troubling.

Just as insidious is his implication that a rape victim only deserves our sympathy—or, if you prefer, a rape victim is only legitimate—if she behaves in a certain way after the rape. To earn the right not to bear a child for a rapist by force, you have to pull it together right after the rape and go straight to the emergency room, keeping in mind to avoid Catholic hospitals, even if that means driving for hours out of your way. If you are in shock or denial after your rape or you fear the repercussions of reporting, too bad, so sad. Only the most pulled-together, brave rape victims get to say no to forced pregnancy. And even then, only 89 percent of the time, which is the effectiveness rate of emergency contraception.


Would he feel this way about his daughter or wife?

These self-righteous male jerks who judge woman and expect them to do the impossible; think straight after a rape

I believe late term abortions are terrible (I think alot of people agree this no late term abortions), As far as a woman who has been raped, or is under age, or is in medical emergency, or an EARLY correction of a mistake: this is not man's territory and has no business making rules against it. This should be the women's decision. Unless a guy gets raped and pregnant then he MIGHT just have enough right to say anything about it.

So Liberals are against the capital punishment killing of the vile people who commit these acts to other people, but are fine with killing the innocent baby offspring and selling it for used parts.

The problem I have with "pro-lifers" is a lot of them rally behind wars and the military. If you're pro-life, it doesn't just mean the unborn. How many "pro life" conservatives rallied behind Bush when he invaded Iraq? How many innocent men, women and children's lives were senselessly wiped out due to "collateral damage." These people were "living" with all their senses and emotions intact when their lives were flushed out. It's pure hypocrisy.

Another conservative hypocrisy is they don't want government to interfere with their personal lives, but trying to tell a women what they can do to their own body is doing exactly that! Having an abortion is between the mother, father and their maker. They may or may not have to account for their decision to abort when they meet their maker, but neither I nor anyone else knows for a fact that our God would condemn a mother for doing it.

We all want to play God and our religions think and preach they have a direct link to tell us what is expected by our God.
These same religions condemn two people of the same sex can't love each other. After all, isn't loving one another the basis for all religions?

So what it comes down to, nobody really knows how God would react to any decision made by a mother for an abortion. Whether it was for the health of the baby, to save the life of the mother, rape, incest or whatever the case may be.

Carson is justifying his research as benefiting humanity as a whole. I also think, in reality he doesn't view the early stages of a fetus as a living human being. So you have a conservative candidate that doesn't feel like he has to stay within the republican party platform. It's one of the big problems with our 2 party system! Candidates can't say what they truly believe. So if you don't agree, don't vote for him, it's that simple.

I for one hope Ben Carson gets the nomination. He will be getting my vote. The man is very smart. It is a sad day in this country when the term "God fearing man" is an insult rather than a compliment. A God fearing brilliant non-politician is exactly what this country needs although I'm no longer sure it's what we deserve.

You act like Conservatives actually give a damn. They want all children to be born but once they're here they are just the problem for someone else to deal with, sent to either prison or war or declared to be "useless eaters" who just want "handouts".

Funny how much you seem to care until they're born and then you wouldn't cross the street to spit on one of them.

Why is that??? Because we should respect "Intelligent Men" for being afraid of Bogeymen, Ghosts, and Mythological Monsters??

I don't respect children for fearing fantasy creatures so why would I respect an adult for doing it??

One day you will find out what a "fantasy" God is and I pity you for it. I will pray for you.

Enough!!

The issue is Ben Carson, and his hypocrisy, or lack of same.

NOT EACH OTHER!!

If you can't talk politics with out resorting to cheap, gratuitous insults, then don't post.

Do not respond to this post.

Carson is a "poll panderer". His policy choices are wholly dependent on what his financial base and party wants to hear. That is why he's now being shown as a hypocrite. He has no principles of his own, or he's willing to sell them out just to get elected, plain and simple.

From what I've seen he's not all that smart either. He may be a good neurosurgeon, but from what he's saying about Abortions and Women's Health he doesn't seem like a very good doctor to me. So while he may be a great guy when you need some brain surgery, he's not the best mind when it comes to dealing with reality, policy, politics, world affairs, etc.

It's not uncommon for a specialist like himself to be very good at what he specialized in but be lacking in other areas.

Yes Carson would be my second choice Trump my first just because he seems to piss everybody off. Demoncrats don't seen to have any candidates as of yet.

I think those are excellent choices and reasons for those choices as well. It's good to see so many conservative minds think alike.

Good luck with that.

I'm not sure about Jeb. Carson might be a better choice than Hillary, maybe. But he's a total spineless flip flopper with no experience at all. He seems like the type that would just do everything he's told and wouldn't know anything beyond what others were telling him.

Jeb and Hillary are terrifying each in their own right, but at least they have experience in some area's of politics. Carson wouldn't know what to do from one minute to the next without someone guiding him the whole time. Plus, I can't imagine anyone taking him serious about anything, especially other nations leaders. I think they'd just look at him like, "who the hell is this guy???"

That's like saying Great White Sharks have some experience in limb amputation.

While accurate and correct, the process is still ugly and unappealing.

I won't argue with you there. But I still think when you're swimming with sharks, it's better to be a shark than a manatee.

I say it's about time we aquired a man who WASN'T a lawyer OR a damn politician.
Yet has superior intelligence.
I like Dr.Carson as well.
HE isn't concerned with LEFT /RIGHT garbage.
He would pick and intelligent CABNIET as well ,not just FRIENDS who want jobs for the mney but lack sufficeint skills to execute them.
AND CERTAINLY not social ACTIVISTS who seek ONLY division.
