Republican legislator Brian Kurcaba of West Virginia thinks that in some cases, rape can be a good thing – because those crazy Republicans NEVER LEARN. EVER!
Charleston Gazette reporter David Gutman attended a discussion at the House of Delegates and had the opportunity to hear Delegate Kurcaba say, “Obviously rape is awful,” but “What is beautiful is the child is that could come from this.”
The remark was made in regards to a law that passed in 2014 that makes abortion illegal after 20 weeks. Anti-choice activists allege that a fetus has the ability to feel pain and is therefore too viable to abort. Republicans have brought the bill up again and have voted to remove the exception for rape and incest victims.
(But there’s no War On Women.)
Republicans seem to have a very unhealthy fixation on rape because they can’t seem to stop talking about it. There was even an emergency meeting where all the misogynist knuckle dragging Neanderthals elected officials were instructed not to even mention the word after the famous Todd Akin gaffe. But it’s kind of like telling a teen not to have sex. Once you make it forbidden, it can become an obsession. And clearly, it has.
Like when Richard Mourdock (R-IN) said rape babies were a gift from God. And when Ron Paul (R-TX) implied that women lie about being sexually assaulted. Of course who can forget the champion of the rapists rights, Paul Ryan? He not only sponsored a bill that gives rapists the right to sue the victims, he also said he believes that rape is just another “method of conception. “
As crazy as they are, these misogynists show us their true colors when they make asinine statements about women and assault.
