Why are all those Republicans urging Todd Akin to withdraw from the Senate race? He only said what they all purport to think. If life begins at conception, and they want the constitution to say that it does, then his position follows as the night the day. what he said was not much different than what one of their former leading candidate had to say about rape victims:
As horrible as the way that that son or daughter and son was created, it still is her child. And whether she has that child or doesn’t, it will always be her child. And she will always know that. And so to embrace her and to love her and to support her and get her through this very difficult time, I’ve always, you know, I believe and I think the right approach is to accept this horribly created — in the sense of rape — but nevertheless a gift in a very broken way, the gift of human life, and accept what God has given to you. As you know, we have to, in lots of different aspects of our life. We have horrible things happen. I can’t think of anything more horrible. But, nevertheless, we have to make the best out of a bad situation.
It's worth pointing out in this context that the Republican party, a wholly owned subsidiary of the 1%, which really only plays the religious nuts for suckers by getting them to vote against their own interests, has no intention of denying access to abortion to the daughters of said 1%. All they'll ever need do is hop on a plane.
