Rep. Todd Akin said a lot of bizarro things regarding women get pregnant from rape. The main point of Akin's insane, ignorant, uneducated comment was:
abortion should still not be a legal option for the rape victim.Thus, it is the main point of Rep Todd Akin's comments that both Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan do agree with him on.
Paul Ryan, January 2011:
Paul Ryan and Rep. Todd Akin were 2 of the 227 Republican co-sponsors of House Bill H.R. 3: "No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act" that re-defined the word "rape." The Ryan/Akin Bill changed the word “rape” to “forcible rape,” until the public got wind of the House Republicans insanity and were forced to backtrack.
Banning abortions for victims of "non-forcible rape" is one reason why Paul Ryan and Todd Akin used the language "non-forcible rape" in their Bill. You see, since Ryan and Akin believe that women cannot get pregnant if they are "forcibly raped" then they could ban all abortion and not have to worry about those pesky questions, "Would you even ban abortion in the case of rape."
Paul Ryan and Todd Akin were not done in their oppression of women as Ryan and Akin sponsored House Bill H.R. 212 "Sanctity of Human Life Act" which would have usurped Science and hap-haphazardly defined "human life shall be deemed to begin with fertilization."
Oh sure, Romney most likely thinks only magic underwear can save a woman from getting pregnant from rape. But, one thing is certain, Mitt Romney agrees with Todd Akin, women who get pregnant from being raped should be legally forced to carry the fetus full term.
Here is a 2007 video of Romney telling Tim Russert that "Life begins at conception"
Here is the Fall 2011 video of Romney supporting the Personhood Bill that would outlaw birth control pills, IUDs and in vitro fertilization and give rise to a woman being a murderer if she chooses one certain currently-legal private medical procedure.
Yup, there is no doubt, Paul Ryan and Mitt Romney agree with Todd Akin.
