There is a reason you will never hear me whinging about my prostate. I’m sure you can guess what that is.
How I wish some politicians thought the same way.
Richard Mourdock, Republican Senate Candidate:
‘I struggled with it [abortion] myself for a long time, but I came to realize life is that gift from God. And I think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen.’
Todd Akin, one-time Republican Senate candidate:
‘If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.’
Roger Rivard, Wisconsin representative:
‘Some girls rape easy.’
(Apparently his good old dad advised him that consensual sex with some girls might become ‘rape’ after the fact.)
Gentlemen, you are very, very unlikely to be raped, you will never get pregnant and you are never going to have to decide whether to have an abortion.
