Way To Go Tea Party Patriots


Copied From:

Tell Rep. Todd Akin: Stop lying about rape

This is outrageous even for a Tea Party Republican.

Congressman Todd Akin, a member of the House and a Tea Party Republican Senate nominee, said that survivors of "legitimate rape" have biological defenses against pregnancy:

"First of all, from what I understand from doctors [pregnancy from rape] is really rare... If it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down." 1

This is not only an outright falsehood, but it's an offensive attack on women.

Tell Rep. Todd Akin: Stop lying about rape, and apologize to women.

In fact, according to the American Journal of Obstetricians and Gynecologists "rape-related pregnancy occurs with significant frequency" and over 32,000 pregnancies each year result from rape. 2

Suggesting that women who become pregnant as a result of rape are not "legitimately raped," is outrageous and shows an utter lack of understanding of the basic principles of human biology But it's not simply an isolated comment by a dangerously ignorant politician. And it's not the first time Republicans in the House have tried to "redefine" rape.

In 2011, Rep. Akin co-sponsored Rep. Chris Smith's bill to redefine rape. The purpose of the bill was to limit the number of survivors of rape and incest who could receive federally funded abortion care under existing law by changing the definition of rape to "forcible rape." That bill was so outrageous that even the extreme anti-woman majority in the House had to back down in the face of public opposition. 3

Tell Rep. Todd Akin: Stop lying about rape, and apologize to women.

Rep. Akin's utterly offensive remarks may be beyond the pale, but they are not isolated. They are part of a pattern of attacks led by Tea Party Republicans against women in this country. We have to push back, and we have to push back hard. We will not let them redefine rape. We will not let them continue their attacks on women's health.

Tell Rep Todd Akin that his statement that survivors of "legitimate rape" have biological defenses against pregnancy is not only an outrageous falsehood, but it's offensive and dangerous. He needs to stop lying about rape, and apologize to women.

COMMENT:

This shows exactly what I keep trying to preach.  The Tea Party even has people like this that are representing the Conservatives/Republicans in the U.S.  This is another reason why I became a National Socialist with the American Nazi Party.  Both the Democrats and Republicans have very bad things about them and yet people still flock to their lies.  For a National Socialist, rape is very wrong and disgraceful to anyone and is one of the worst crimes in society.  I vow to keep finding things such as this to show that both Republicans and Democrats are one in the same no matter what type of name they want to call themselves.  There is nothing patriotic about this filth and idiots that want to represent anyone in the United States.

  1. He sounds like a rapist himself! We don't need anyone like that in office! What about little boys or young men who get raped, they don't get pregnant!

  2. Exactly how I felt; he's such an idiot and it goes to show that nobody in these classes can be trusted. Romney and Ryan do nothing but cater to whatever seems resonable to the American people. I bet they would even open up just like Obama if they get into office, which will really prove my point. I guess until everyone sees that both of those parties are the same, they'll keep voting for them. This is why it is important to show that National Socialism is the best way to go.

  3. Yep, they are the same! Now they are finding out that Paul Ryan has a black ex-girlfriend!

  4. Atkins is a Neanderthal. He probably can't wear rings because they would wear out from all the knuckle walking he does.

    If any woman ever votes for him again, she's got to be crazy - or an idiot.

    National Socialism is the ONLY way!

  5. Wow, I didn't know about Paul Ryan's ex being black!! That's crazy!! I bet he'll use it to help score more votes from the masses. You know, my wife asked me the other day what I considered to be a crime against nature and I told her, interracial marriage, homosexuality, and anything else out there that goes against what nature created. We were created this way for a reason and for us to step up and slap nature in the face does nothing but causes nature to react in ways such as violent storms, earthquakes and things like that. Dan, you are very right and one of these days, the American Masses will start seeing that National Socialism is Definitely the ONLY way!!! Thanks to both of you for your comments!!
