First Door on the Left » Legitimate rape

First Door on the Left » Legitimate rape

with Rachel Maddow laying out the facts.
This wasn't a misquote by Akins. It was part of a vicious shift of Republicanism, to the extreme notion that a woman's life, health, sanity, are never more important than her duty to carry through with any pregnancy, no matter the circumstances. Because only the babies are important. At least, until they're born. Then forget about them. It's everyone left to fend for themselves, as WIC and SNAP are cut, as school lunch programs are cut, as education is cut, as more parents are forced to work longer hours with fewer benefits, just trying to make ends meet.
