Rep. Todd Akin attempts to make the Missouri senate race a lot easier for his opponent Claire McCaskill by letting us know that women don't get pregnant from "legitimate rape".
Roll Call wrote:
Rep. Todd Akin, the Republican nominee for Senate in Missouri, justified his opposition to all abortion, even in instances of rape, by saying that “legitimate rape” rarely leads to pregnancy — comments that have set off a media firestorm in an already contentious race.

In an interview with a St. Louis television station posted today, Akin said that female bodies “[have] ways to try to shut that whole thing down” and that only rapists, and not unborn children, should be punished.

“First of all, from what I understand from doctors, [pregnancy from rape] is really rare,” Akin told KTVI-TV, in an interview first reported nationally by Talking Points Memo. “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”

Akin (and Paul Ryan) were among those trying to redefine rape this past last year to only include "forcible rape" where the woman could prove she physically fought the rapist.

Edit: Oops, that was in 2011, not 2012

You know, if our bodies could turn off pregnancy at will, we probably wouldn't have any single mothers.

And Republicans wouldn't have to worry about those poor insurance companies having to cover the cost of female birth control for whores!

I'm much more worried about the liberal War on Imaginative Rhetoric Naming Conventions.

Clearly, they're winning.

Weeeelllllll, I'm not sure it's fair to blame the fad of using "War on <cause of your choice" on us lefties when it all started with the War on Christmas, caused by people with the unmitigated gall to want to include non-Christians in the holidays.


Edit: dropped phrase.

If "War on Christmas" was the first one, it's all the ones that followed that are the problem!

I suppose technically it was the Reagan-era War on Drugs that started the whole thing.

I mentioned in the other thread that the GOP is (again) putting the "Constitutional Amendment to end all abortion, no matter what" plank into their platform despite the laughable assurances from embarrassed Republicans that, no, really... they totally believe in rape/incest exemptions and they really just want to make it a state issue, not a federal one.

Well, also in the "Shit Republicans Lie About" folder is SSM. Certain people would want you to believe that it's only about the "definition" of marriage and that they'd totally be on board with civil unions or some other separate-but-equal marriage alternative but those darn liberals just demand marriage and that's what's causing all the problems.
Politico wrote:
The Republican platform committee resoundingly rejected an amendment Tuesday that would have endorsed civil unions for *** couples.

The GOP will maintain its official support for a constitutional amendment that would “protect traditional marriage” by defining it as between a man and a woman.
[...]
After the civil unions amendment failed, Nevada representative Pat Kerby tried to amend the traditional marriage section to say that every American should be treated “equally under the law” as long as they are not hurting anyone else. He said that the GOP should focus on an economic message, not waging the culture wars.
[...]
Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach opposed the amendment on the ground that government routinely regulates behaviors like drugs and polygamy.
