Many Conservatives, such as the above “men”, are quick to label abortion a crime. A crime.
Furthermore, they legislate according to those beliefs, which apparently come from their religious convictions, bean stuff, and misogyny. (I apologize if my labeling them as misogynists was wrongly construed by anyone as offensive, or if anyone made themselves upset in any way over that label. Ok, I feel better now.)
The legal concept of The Fruit of the Poison Tree is fascinating to me. In the most clear example of this concept, anything advantageous to prosecutors that results from an illegally-performed search is considered fruit from the poison tree (of the illegal search) and is thus inadmissible as evidence against a defendant.
Let’s say a rape (legitimate, forceful, godly, or any ol’ kind really) results in a pregnancy. Conservatives like the insane clown posse of Ryan, Mourdock, and Akin, (and maybe Mitt Romney, too. Who knows? What day is it? How are we supposed to know his convictions if he does not?) would force that victim of rape to carry her baby to term.
In other words, they would force her to bear the fruit of that most heinous of actions.
My President, Barack Hussein Obama, said the other day on Jay Leno:
I don’t know how these guys come up with these ideas. Let me make a very simple proposition: Rape is rape. It is a crime.
It is a crime. That’s the money line right there. The idiots want to force a woman to bear the fruit of a crime, possibly the ultimate poison tree.
…And it dawned on me: The conservatives who push this rape and abortion nonsense, like Paul Ryan et al, never seem to take the opportunity to call rape a crime.
