When trying to explain his reasoning for voting against exceptions for rape and incest in the anti-abortion legislation he tried to pass in Congress, Rep. Steve King said: "What if we went back through all the family trees and just pulled out anyone who was a product of rape or incest? Would there be any population of the world left if we did that?" https://news.yahoo.com/u-rep-steve-k...173023969.html

Did he forget what Rep. Todd Akin said?

In a local news interview, on August 19, 2012, discussing abortion, Akin claimed that victims of what he described as "legitimate rape" very rarely become pregnant. Airing on St. Louis television station KTVI, his response to a question on rape exceptions for abortion was:

"Well you know, people always want to try to make that as one of those things, well how do you, how do you slice this particularly tough sort of ethical question. First of all, from what I understand from doctors, that's really rare. If it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Todd_A..._and_pregnancy

Republicans, go take a remedial biology class. The rest of you, get to work on all that raping and incesting. The human race may depend on it!

It's ludicrous but I know where that argument most likely comes from. My guess is they're equating a horrific pregnancy to eating bad food. Your body will not digest the food it'll throw it back up.


They need to look at nature. Animals like cats and dogs will get pregnant no matter what. One female + one male is all it takes. We are animals too so our sexual organs do not know the difference. We're just designed to make offspring. If the female body could shut down like that you wouldn't still get periods on some forms of birth control so that's how clueless our organs are. There's also cases of IUDs falling out that's how bad the body wants to procreate.

Just some of Mr. King's comments are enough to get him fired at a non-political job place.

Steve King questions if there would be any population left if not for rape and incest.

Well, maybe not in HIS family.


Seriously, what kind of sick mind even thinks that kind of logic. It REALLY makes one suspect that he thinks that kind of behavior is normal and acceptable.
WHY is that?

Which brings me back to my 2nd sentence.
I meant it as a snide remark, but maybe it's just the simple truth.

He's probably thinking of Lot and his daughters have they fled Sodom and Gomorrah. God hated gays, but he was more than okay with Lot having sex with his daughters. SMDH.
