What do you all think about Rep. Todd Akin and his "forcible rape" comment?
I find the science laughable. Honestly I have respect for people that hold strong on the rape exception issue. If they really feel the fetal life has rights which trump the woman's, even if she is having severe financial problems or was about to finally start a great full time educational program, then is a rape exception really consistant with that belief?
It seems that Paul Ryan also has recently used the phrase "forcible rape", though he is trying to distance himself from it now (washington post coverage)
