How do rape exceptions work?

Aug 21, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Washington Post

The Todd Akin controversy has highlighted the divide between anti-abortion politicians like Mitt Romney who support exemptions allowing women to terminate pregnancies caused by rape or incest and those like Akin and Paul Ryan who argue that the procedure should only be allowed when a mother's life is at risk.

They won't work for Romney as he tries to dance around the 'Personhood' issue that he said he agreeded with.

He thinks an woman's egg becomes a Person at conception, so how can he now say he would be okay with aborting that "person" if the person came to be due to a rape?

Dance on that one Romney.

"Forceable" Rape?

What is that.

Repub and Ryan have to be saying there is some 'rape' where force is not involved?

Give us an example of that repubs.

Isn't it scary that repubs are willing to put a man in the Senate who believes woman have a "rape switch" that turns off the reproductive system during a rape.

....is there any science that says that?

Nope.

Deflect deflect. No rape involved with Clinton and Monicka no matter how you spin it. lol

Funny how you reich-wingers defend every action with "well dems did it". lol

Enjoy your inability to address the issue currently being debated by your party.

Ryan signed a bill making exceptions for "FORCEABLE" rape.

Unlike Ryan, you're afraid to help us understand what that is.

Keep dancing sheep. You repubs dance like dressage horses.

When you're a grown man skinny dipping with other repub men in the Sea of Galilee, anything that happens is not "forceable" rape.

Democrats spent $1.5 mil to help Akin win GOP primary? Liberals never win on a level playing field.

"By the left"?

LOL.

Yeah, Akins statement, the debate with GOP demanding Akins leave, and him saying no are all un-forced errors forced upon the GOP by those ingenious Dems. How do they do that...must be Dem magic.

LOL... Head back in the sand sheep. Ignore this, cause GOP will cause another issue soon. Romney and GOP/Ryan platform on Abortion do not agree. Dems...caused that to.

I was using mind control when I made Akins say something that caused GOP, Karl Rove, Ryan, and others to ask him to end his campaign.

I have the power....LOL

Head back in the sand sheep! Don't make me control another repub to create a Dem cause "distraction".
