Yes indeed, Paul Ryan, rape is one “method of conception,” isn’t it? Wow. Way to totally dismiss the terror and violence of having one’s body violated by another, you soul-less bastard. Rape is an event that changes who you are forever. Just look at his face as he’s speaking; he doesn’t even seem to realize that what he’s saying is so disgusting.
As if the trauma, fear, injuries, and horror at losing personal autonomy during the rape are not enough, then, if the woman becomes pregnant as a result of rape, Paul Ryan and his fellow pro-forced birthers will happily extend the torture for another nine months — at least.
But we shouldn’t really be all that surprised that Paul Ryan could say something so abhorrent. He’s a lifelong Ayn Rand devotee (when it suits him), so basically, as long as he’s not the one being raped, he doesn’t care. That’s your problem, honey. Although I really doubt he gives a flying flip if a woman has an abortion or not, Ryan parts company with Ayn Rand when it comes to pregnancy as a result of that rape, because it suits him to pander to the rabid forced birth crowd.
This is what I find so disturbing about Paul Ryan — he doesn’t care about this country or the people, he cares about what Paul Ryan wants.
Haven’t we had about enough of that kind of political candidate?
