Last week, Indiana GOP Senate candidate Richard Mourdock argued in a debate that women who have been raped should not have access to abortion services because their pregnancies are a “gift from god.” As a survivor of childhood sexual violence, I disagree with him completely.
My name is Dawn Hill. Though I am old now, there was a time when I was young and carefree as you perhaps are now or can remember being in your childhood. Childhood should be a happy and carefree time for all our children, but my mother found her new husband, my stepfather, much more important. He forever took the joy away from my life when I was just 11 years old: He began molesting me and continued until he began raping me when I was 13
Mr. Mourdock last night said:“I came to realize life is that gift from God, even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape. It is something that God intended to happen.”
I became pregnant, contrary to the "scientific theories" of many modern Republicans. Not only was the experience loathsome and painful, it was also impossible for me to deal with or talk about because of the times: in the fifties, abortion was illegal. Illegal in the same way the Republican Party platform states it wants to make abortion now by constitutional amendment and just as Presidential candidate Mitt Romney has suggested casually he would “be delighted” to return to.
Please, take a moment to travel back to the fifties with me.

SAN CLEMENTE, CALIF.—For most of her 100 years, Minka Disbrow tried to find out what became of the precious baby girl she gave up for adoption after being raped as a teen.

She hoped, but never imagined, she’d see her Betty Jane again.

The cruel act of violence bore in Disbrow an enduring love for the child. She kept a black and white photograph of the baby bundled in blankets and tucked inside a basket.

It was the last she saw of the girl — until the phone rang in her California apartment in 2006 with the voice of an Alabama man and a story she could have only dreamed.

Well, you have the right to your opinion; but you don't really know. I could very well say the same thing about Bush; remember when he prohibited photos of the flag draped coffins? Bush didn't attend any of the funerals or meet the coffins arrivals back to the States.
From what I have seen about President Obama and the First Lady; they are very caring and compassionate people who care deeply for veterans and the families of the deceased.
that's why the slimeball Obama let two former SEALS die on a rooftop in Benghazi....

Losing the World
How the Benghazi debacle became a proxy for America's myth of domination
http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articl...
Excellent read.
My simplistic take on this article is that it sounds like an apology article to go along with Obama's apology tour. I understand the concept of American not having the right to inflict its will on other countries, just as I understand the concept of this world needing SOMEONE with morals regarding human rights needing to stand for that no matter what. The jihadists would glady go for world domination and take away all rights from all peoples; therefore, someone strong should stand against it. I also see how some American greed and avarice would also affect those interactions.

I didn't even listen to Mitt's statement right after Benghazi. I just felt it was important that if we DO send American ambassadors to other countries, we should also have whatever is necessary to keep them safe available to them at all times, and apparently this administration did not take those precautions, nor as now is apparent, even send help AFTER the attack started. I feel this administration failed in that regard, kn that responsibility to our citizens, and my opinion has nothing to do with Mitt Romney.

I love how you have a fit because of the death of 4 Americans due to attacks from terrorists yet defend these same terrorists. You prefer to allow these people to continue to act against the US until we can arrest therm & hold therm for trial.
There is little difference between a US citizen hiding in Yemen directing attacks against US citizens & a sniper in a clock tower. The sniper is taken out by SWAT.
But hey, a real law enforcement person would know this.
COMMANDER IN CHIEF is a military rank, dufus.
Obama IS in the military, dufus.
He's the goddam Commander in Chief, dufus.

I'd like to see what would have happened if that Force Recon unit in Sigonella, Italy, were put into the fight.
Marine Force Recon will be armed and ready to deploy 10 minutes after waking them.
Why were they stood down?

And who told Susan Rice what to say all over the television networks and at the UN?

Ty Woods, retired from the US Military and afterwards became a "soldier of fortune" none of the activities attributed to Woods on the evening of 9/11 early morning of 9/12 have been confirmed by a "source" with a name and face. It goes without saying that his father wasn't there, the military officials who elder Woods spoke with weren't there so lets try to keep it fkn real OK?
There were Americans who witnessed the events at both locations who "so far" have not spoken publicly. There were Libyan witnesses as well__have you read their stories__has Glenda Beck or Sundancecracker?
the only thing worse than Obama is a draft-dodging Obamabot slimeball like Realtime who attacks men who gave their lives for their country....

I'm going to ask the same question the Americans dying in Benghazi asked ... and was recorded for us to listen to today:

Where's the Spectre?(That's the AC-130 gunship deployed in Libya for this exact reason.)

Why was the Spectre not deployed to the fight?

The Spectre was there for this exact reason.
The Force Recon Marines in Sigonella were there for this exact reason.
Why weren't they put into the fight?

So if a man keeps a smile o his face, has God/jJesus in his heart, and is a happy friendly helpful person, that means you can not trust him with your life? You are more stupid than I first thought.

You mean you can't count on Mitt keeping your Welfare To Work.."NOT TO WORK" checks coming in,because he will have people back to work.

It is absolutely mind boggling to me that you Republicans don't recognize the phony hypocrisy of your indignation over Obama's role in Benghazi while defending Bush's role in Iraq. Here we are years later still digging out from the devastation of a war based on faulty intelligence from a Republican president's staff that cost THOUSANDS of American lives and billions of dollars. This bogus intelligence was mulled over by Bush's people for WEEKS and they still phucked up! But you hypocrites rail against Obama's team for not making an INSTANT decision based on cloudy intelligence that could have put even more American lives at risk.
Didn't seem to be anything cloudy about the fact that boots on the ground in country felt their security was unsufficient due to activities and things happening right there around them. Their requests for help were perfectly clear. And when the attack began, it was watched in real time in the White House. Are you saying president obama took the coward's way out to decide not to try to send them help at the time the attack was occurring? So as not to put "American lives" at risk>? Since when does the United States just abandon their citizens rather than make an effort to save them>?

Based on past knowledge (if he had attended his security briefings and been kept up to date on the US around the world), he should have been able to decide to send in air support and whatever else was necessary to stop the attack which lasted many hours. How long should he have to think about it? Couple of days...a few weeks?
