Ryan/Akin views on rape
The Ryan Bounce
I don’t agree with them, but it’s a simple, logically consistent point of view to ban all forms of abortion under the old maxim “2 wrongs don’t make a right”. These convoluted, back-assward crazy statements about “women won’t get pregnant unless they want to”, one kind of rape is “better” than another, etc. just make them seem ignorant and nuts.
The one exception the pro-lifers really have to consider is for the health and safety of the mother. Simply denying there ever is a concern for the health and safety of the mother is another point that makes them sound nuts. Before 20th century medicine, giving birth was one of the leading causes of mortality among women.
