Insane Things Politicians Have Said About Women's Bodies

Teen rape victim should share the responsibility with her rapist.
Montana district Judge G. Todd Baugh wasn’t sure how "real" the rape of a 14-year-old girl by a teacher actually was when you considered the child acted “older than her chronological age.”. Way to go Todd.

Women's bodies can shut REAL rape down

A very eloquent man, Representative Todd Akin of Missouri muttered this gem- If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. But let’s assume that maybe that didn’t work or something: I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be of the rapist, and not attacking the child.”

Utah State Rep Brian Green said, "If an individual has sex with their wife while she is unconscious ... a prosecutor could then charge that spouse with rape, theoretically," said Rep. Brian Greene, R-Pleasant Grove."That makes sense in a first date scenario, but to me, not where people have a history of years of sexual activity." Umm, Brian? Are you ok?

This nugget of wisdom came from the mouth of Rick Santorum who believes that women should accept their rape babies as gifts from God.  

Rape kits ensure that women don't have their rape babies to begin with

Usually it's male politicians who stumble on the most basic reproductive concepts but this time it is a woman, Texas Rep Jodie Laubenberg, who thinks a rape kit is an abortion. She once said, "In the emergency room they have what's called rape kits where a woman can get cleaned out.” Oh. Ok. Cool, Jodie.

Extraordinary people are sometimes conceived through rape!

Mike Huckabee would like to remind you that rape has created some awesome people! Mike said, rape is “inexcusable and indefensible” but man, can it produce top-notch humans." Cool story, Mike!
