GOP Senate Candidate Supports Life Sentences For Rape Victims Who Obtain Abortions

From Buzzfeed:
North Dakota Senate Candidate Voted To Make Abortion In Case Of Rape, Incest Carry Life Sentence

The American Taliban strikes again, having sought to impose a life sentence in prison on victims of rape who obtained an abortion, no matter the circumstances. Well, at least they're not chopping women's heads off - yet.


Rep. Rick Berg (R-ND), the candidate for Senate from North Dakota, once voted for a bill that would have made any woman who obtained an abortion guilty of a homicide crime — even if it were in the case of rape or incest. Indeed, the bill Berg supported does not even contain an explicit exception if an abortion is necessary to save the woman’s life.


The hypocrisy?


Berg was quick to denounce the comments of a fellow Senate Candidate, Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO), when he claimed that a woman couldn’t get pregnant from “legitimate rape.” Berg called the statement “insulting and reprehensible,” and “condemn[ed] them in the strongest terms possible.” But the assertion that a rape victim should be put in jail for not wanting to carry the child of her rapist is equally abhorrent. It is also largely unpopular — though the country is often split on abortion rights, 75 percent of Americans believe that abortion should be legal in the case of rape or incest.

The party of Low IQ indeed.

You usually have to travel to some of the harsher regions of the Middle East to find a government that punishes victims of rape.

It's like Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), who claimed no child has ever been the victim of rape, or as he says: "[he's] not aware of any young victims like that." (source: King's Denial of Child Rape Victims Just Latest of His Anti-Choice Diatribes)

They can deny it all they want. young women, even children, are raped, and some become pregnant from rape. It should be 100% their choice to terminate such a pregnancy, and not have to be faced with a life sentence in prison for it.

The American Taliban really have a lot in common with their fellow Middle Eastern misogynists.

Why would you think it is limited to the GOP? How about Hank Johnson thinking the Island of Guam would tip over? How about Biden's "put y'all back in chains" comment? It's just that the liberal media happens to be digging up a lot of this stuff lately.

Here's another good liberal rant


6. I propose a limitation be put on how many sqares [sic] of toilet paper can be used in any one sitting. Now, I don’t want to rob any law-abiding American of his or her God-given rights, but I think we are an industrious enough people that we can make it work with only one square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where 2 to 3 could be required. — Sheryl Crow

2. I have to tell you, you know, it’s part of reporting this case, this election, the feeling most people get when they hear Barack Obama’s speech. My, I felt this thrill going up my leg. — “Journalist” Chris Matthews

"Hank Johnson thinking the Island of Guam would tip over?" - was a tongue-in-cheek joke.

Biden's the banks will "put ya'll back in chains" was about the banks.

How do you compare those above statements to something like drafting a bill and signing it that would seek to put rape victims in prison for an abortion? Or for thinking 12-year-olds don't get raped? Or for thinking women can't get pregnant from 'legitimate rape'?

Do you want to throw Obama's "57 states" out there too? That's obviously on the same level as these rape policies coming from the GOP.

Obviously it is the same. Low IQ doesn't even begin to cover it, more like you have to be an outright psychopath. It is the only way I can see someone coming in here equating stupid things people say to anothers sociopathic desire to put imprison a woman for obtaining an abortion. But then again this is the Republican Party were talking about, they need those women locked up to fulfill the quotas for their friends running the prison system.

here's some more


2. Joe Biden on culturalism: "In Delaware, the largest growth of population is Indian Americans, moving from India. You cannot go to a 7/11 or a Dunkin' Donuts unless you have a slight Indian accent. I'm not joking."


and is whoopie Goldberg a closet non-liberal or something?


3. Whoopi Goldberg on 43-year-old Roman Polanski raping and sodomizing a 13-year-old girl: "I know it wasn't rape-rape. It was something else but I don't believe it was rape-rape. He went to jail and and [sic] when they let him out he was like "You know what this guy's going to give me a hundred years in jail I'm not staying, so that's why he left."


Did she mean it wasn't legitimate rape? What else could she have meant?


Barack Obama: "I've now been in 57 states? I think one left to go?"
8. John Kerry on the troops: "You know, education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don't, you get stuck in Iraq."

34. Jerry Brown, former governor of California, and current candidate for the same position: "The conventional viewpoint says we need a jobs program and we need to cut welfare. Just the opposite! We need more welfare and fewer jobs."
39. Al Gore on zoology: "A zebra does not change its spots."

42. Congressman John Dingell on freedom: "The harsh fact of the matter is when you're passing legislation that will cover 300 million American people in different ways, it takes a long time to do the necessary administrative steps that have to be taken to put the legislation together to control the people."

Exactly

Blago the idiot spent six months hammering out detail by detail of how he was going to
imprision rape victims for exercising their freedom.

To be fair, I think that the GOP is getting heat that many of it's members don't deserve. Unfortunately the party that is seen as conservative is the logical place for the truly over zealous religious right to call home.

I'm not in any way, shape, or form against religious folk. But there was a reason the Framers decided to keep the Church out of government. We need to remind some of these zealots of this fact. God has his house, the people have theirs, and they need to be mutually exclusive.

No it was just stupid.

But Holdren wanting to sterilize the entire population with mass medication in the water is just diabolical.

Anyhow, don't take my post out of context. I was responding to the guy who suggested low IQ indicates GOP.

Last I checked Blago is not Republican. The point of the thread is bashing the GOP for stupid statements. But it's truly funny watching you all defend stupid Democrats.
