"Legitimate Rape": Point of Clarification

When pro-life Republicans talk about "legitimate" rape or "forcible" rape or (as Ron Paul calls it) "honest" rape, what they are saying is that they only believe in the kind of rape that occurs when a stranger grabs you in the parking garage or catches you alone in the stairwell or follows you home from the bar.  

If you know your attacker, if he happens to be your husband or your boyfriend or a colleague from work....it's not rape (ergo, no abortion exception if a pregnancy results).

These people are truly monstrously evil.
