Martha Byars

#1 Aug 21, 2012
LITCHFIELD, CT—Though She was initially upset following the brutal sexual assault last month that left her pregnant, victim Martha Byars told reporters she was relieved Sunday to learn from Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO) that her ability to conceive her unwanted child proves she was not, in fact, legitimately raped.

“Being violently coerced into having sex was the worst thing that’s ever happened to me, so I take comfort in knowing it wasn’t actually rape,” Byars said of the vicious encounter in which she was accosted in an alleyway by a stranger, pinned to the ground, and penetrated against her will for 25 minutes.“It was absolutely horrific—I felt violated in the worst way imaginable—but thanks to Congressman Akin, I now realize it must, at some level, have been consensual after all.”

“Thank God for that,” Byars added.“I’m so relieved to know that my child’s father, the man who muffled my screams as he forcefully penetrated me over and over and left me hemorrhaging to death on the street, is not a rapist.”

Explaining that the Republican senatorial candidate’s statements had “really opened her eyes” by helping her understand the workings of her own reproductive system, Byars said she only wishes she could have known at the time of her near-fatal assault that the female body has ways to shut down conception during cases of tried-and-true rape.

“Now that I know the truth, I realize none of the telltale signs of legitimate rape were there at all,” mused Byers, noting that her body did not in any way shut down but in fact continued to register excruciating pain throughout the entire cruel ordeal.“I must have at least subconsciously wanted it—otherwise, the sperm wouldn’t have been able to enter my body.”

“Not only is this knowledge a blessing for me,” she continued,“but it will no doubt bring great hope to the tens of thousands of women who are forcibly and savagely impregnated in the United States every year.”

Why should a baby be murdered because of rape and how many people will lie and say they were raped in order to get an abortion?? That was his point. But he's too dumb to just not answer the question

Why should a woman be forced to have a baby who was raped?
Don't know if your male r female, but if it was your mother, daughter, wife & they were raped would you take care of a baby that resulted from their rape?

This dumbass politician needs to be [email protected] slapped. A woman's ability to conceive has NOTHING to do with being raped. Rape is rape and has nothing to do with conception. I guess that is what politicians are taught in Missouri.

AMEN! Slapped until he grows a BRAIN! You would not believe the idiotic men who think that a woman can't get pregnant unless she enjoys the sex act (orgasm). I didn't think these men still existed... thought that crap went out with the Dark Ages. Are people in office really this effin' stupid ? YES!!! And it's not just in Missouri, either.

This guy might as well hang up his hat and call it a day. And if he's married... and IF his wife is worth anything at all -- she will HATE him -- not only for his comment, but because he thinks this way. Yep... If she thinks anything of herself, he should be getting his divorce papers pretty soon!

Todd Akin is not the only Republican that supports this view on rape and incest. The whole Republican party does!
In a few days, their platform in Tampa is supposed to "not' include an exemption for rape and incest in their 'right to life platform'..It is not included in the platform set to be adopted by the party Romney will officially lead when he accepts the Republican nomination next week.

And Ryan, his vice presidential pick, has opposed exceptions for rape and voted alongside Akin in the House, though Ryan now says he defers to Romney's position on the matter.

Since young girls now enter puberty at ages as young as 10 years old, can you imagine the horror of having a child be forced to give birth to her own farthers baby?

These are the things that could happen if Republicans get their way!

So much for the party of less government!!!

If you do not want the baby there are thousands of childless couples who would love to adopt the baby! Why abort? I guess if it were a child that had been forced that would be a different story as it could pose a threat to the child's life to give birth. But, if it is medically safe for the woman why not give the gift of a beautiful baby to s couple longing to have children.

When Republicans ban "ALL" abortions.....I hope the Republicans don't b#*ch about haveing their tax dollars pay for all these kids.
We'll have to open up orphanages to house them all.

Republicans main agenda is cutting all services having to do with the poor.
Democrats would support the poor but Republicans only want to support the rich.....jus sain!

Akin said something stupid. But the liberal media has blown it up. Our vice president says stupid stuff every week and the media doesn't say a thing obama says that hard working business owners didn't build their businesses with hard work and sacrifice and nobody challenges obama on his words. Akin should have kept his mouth shut . But in the case of rape there is the morning after pill to ensure pregnancy doesn't occur. So legitimate rape doesn't have to result in pregnancy. Waitng three months later and claiming to be raped is too easy for some irresponsible people to claim in order to get an abortion. Some people do use abortion as a contraception and that's just not right. There are too many babies being killed everyday and it needs to be controlled more!!!

Seems you've forgotten one thing in your comments.....Republicans want to outlaw the use of the morning after pill. They want to stop sex education in schools. Tennessee Republicans want to keep kids from holding hands.
Republicans want us back in the middle ages. Thus the stupid comment from Rep. Akin is the true mindset of the Republican party!!

Sex ed should be taught @ home. Men should help raise their kids and teach them by talking to them and by example.
The morning after pill shouldn't be used like birth control either. Just because a girl has a wild weekend and as an afterthought decides later that maybe I should go get a morning after pill. Sorry irresponsibly is not an excuse for murder either.

If a pregnancy occurs during a rape -- and the woman HAS that child -- the rapist has the possibility of getting the same rights as other fathers. How would you like to have been raped, found out you were pregnant, had the child and the rapist finds out it's his child and asks the courts for visitation rights - and gets them???!!!

Why should a woman have to pay for this through no fault of her own? Why should she have to look at this man every time visitation day comes along? He is in her home -- the man who terrified her has the right to her child!!!

Rapists should not be given any rights at all. NONE! Some courts do give rapists visitation rights -- especially when they can be convinced (rather easily) that they have the child's best interest at heart and are rehabilitated.

There was a movie made with this same scenario, starring Loni Anderson. Every man and woman should watch this movie.

What about when a 10 year old gets molested and becomes pregnant? Kids are going through puberty at a much younger age these days.
Should the child be forced to give birth. Just wondering!

Please do your research before posting. The morning after pill is not "murder"! It is NOT the same thing as the abortion pill. It PREVENTS conception from occurring. It does NOT change anything if a baby has already been conceived. Also, conception does NOT occur at the moment of completed intercourse. Just thought I'd throw that in in case you were unaware of that also....

A person begins @ conception. Maybe u need sex ed yourself. As soon as the sperm and egg meet and cells start to divide that's a new life. And if you then take a pill to stop that division or a pill to make it slide off the uterine wall or what ever else kinda pill they come up with.... That pill ends a newly started life. When u end life that is murder. Can u say murder??

the morning after pill is to stop conception before it takes place.

Conception doesn't always take place after sex. If the woman isn't ovulating, then she can't conceive. Sounds like someone else needs to take sex ed.
