Do they??

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.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    a criminal?  I've never heard a winger say we should strengthen laws againest Rape or up the time required for mandatory sentences.  I would say the rapist MUST be jailed for at least 18+ years, with no time off of good behavior --- isn't out of jail until his "rape baby" is ready for college. If a second offense should occur, then castration would be required.  

    If Republicans are really serious about controlling rape  reproduction this is the only acceptable answer for perpertrators,

    if there is no rape exception because it's "Gods will", then why is there an exception for the life of the mother?  Isn't her dying to give birth to a precious life also "God's will"?

      have to draw the line somewhere.  Carried to its ridiculous conclusion, the clown posse's beliefs about rape should not have any exceptions for the life of the mother.  I would think Paul Ryan would watch happily as a woman gives birth and dies, her last words a plea for god to assume her, body and soul, into heaven.

      So, what could be bad about that??  God's will, right?  Geez, they would be following in the footsteps of Mary herself, right?

    The current right wing is pro-crime.   Why?  They approach this like they approach everything else: you wouldn't be a victim if you had displeased God.  (It's not always worded that way although this is becoming more common, but the unifying belief is that crime victims got there because of some moral failing.  Furthermore, even though the perp may also be failed morally, those actions must represent the act of God.)

    In this world view, law enforcement's job is not to keep the streets safe but to act as agents of vengeance on behalf of the controlling aristocracy in society.

    Oh, yes.  In this world view, corporations (property) are people (not persons, people) and people are property.  Thus, in the eyes of theocratic conservatives, the "crime" of rape is a property crime; the women is inherently guilty of not protecting the property rights of her "owner."

    We are wrong to assume that these people share any of the assumptions of post-Reformation western society.

    These men do not give a tiny damn about raped little girls, I hate them.

  •  "Bean stuff" (0+ / 0-)
    Furthermore, they legislate according to those beliefs, which apparently come from their religious convictions, bean stuff, and misogyny.
    Is this the hokey-sounding story where Ryan calls his kid "bean" because the doctor tells every pregnant woman getting an early ultrasound that the fetus looks "like a bean" at that stage, or are you insinuating something about his genitalia?
