GOP Anti-Abortion Policy Platform Collapses Under Weight of Its Own Ignorance and Absurdity

Let's review, shall we?

Indiana Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock opposes abortion exceptions, even in cases of pregnancies conceived in a rape, based on the premise that  "...I think even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape that it is something that God intended to happen." 

Missouri Republican Senate candidate Todd Akin opposes abortion exceptions because he thinks women cannot become pregnant during a "legitimate rape" because "...the female body has ways to shut that down."

Illinois Republican Senate candidate Joe Walsh opposes abortion exceptions, even in cases where the life or health of the mother is at stake, because he "absolutely" believes "it is never medically necessary to conduct an abortion to save the life of a mother."

Wisconsin Republican Congressman (and Vice Presidential candidate) Paul Ryan opposes abortion exceptions in cases of rape because the "method of conception doesn't change the definition of life."

What a bunch of Bible-thumping, sanctimonious, pseudo-religious, sociopathic douche-bags.

As President Obama said yesterday about Mourdock's comments:
"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. And so these various distinctions about rape don't make too much sense to me -- don't make any sense to me. Women are capable of making these decisions in consultation with their partners, with their doctors, and for politicians to want to intrude in this stuff often times without any information is a huge problem."
