“It is no big surprise that we fight the terrorists because they are fundamentally un-American, and yet we have terrorists in our own culture called abortionists. One of the good pieces of news why we are winning this war is because there are not enough heartless doctors being graduated from medical schools. There is a real shortage of abortionists. Who wants to be at the very bottom of the food chain of medical profession? And what sort of places do these bottom-of-the-food-chain doctors work in? Places that are really a pit. You find that along with the culture of death go all kinds of other law-breaking: not following good sanitary procedure, giving abortions to women who are not actually pregnant, cheating on taxes, all these kinds of things, misuse of anesthetics so that people die or almost die.”
Look, I’m not American, and I know the Republicans are all banging on about saving America from a US version of Kim Jong-il or whatever (because – as someone who lives in a country with healthcare for everyone, I can tell you, I’m definitely forced to attend Communist Party rallies, and I walk around calling everyone ‘Comrade’!), but how can anybody seriously go and vote for a man like Todd Akin?
We already know he thinks rape victims can’t be impregnated (I’ll have to tell that to the woman I know who was raped and impregnated and forced to give birth in eighth grade), but now this too?
How can a man be so against a woman having a right to her own body when he doesn’t even know what an abortion is?!
Does that not speak to people who support his party? Does that not say something about how “educated” his views might be on other issues too?!
Oh, and another thing. Everyone I’ve known with the name Todd has been really cool. This guy needs a more dirty old man name than that!
