    other federal offenses in King's example.

    If the girl wanted an abortion and the rapist facilitated her obtaining one that would not remove evidence of the crime, in fact it would leave a bloody trail that the statutory rape had happened.

    This example is just too out there to refute.

    One wonders about whether Mr King is smuggling young chickens to DC with him for his personal use.

    •  Yea, I'm not debating the logical integrity (0+ / 0-)

      of the example King used.  I'm just saying that the manner in which King used the example is very different from (and elicits a far less odious in me than) the manner in which the snippet posted by Hunter was.

      The quote as used in this diary almost makes King sound like an abortion supporter.

      But, yea, man, King's anti-animal rights stance is just as far out as his example usage.
