In his exact words, Paul Ryan who is running as Vice President with Mitt Romney, stated that rape is a “method of conception” in an interview in August. So what happened to the main stream media coverage? They’ve been eating this anti-women stuff up! Huffington Post picked up the story a week after the interview, then dropped it. There are a few other sites which have a posting about it, such as Raw Story, Gawker, Examiner, and a few others. I happened to have found it on Facebook having been posted by a women’s rights page called, “One Million Vaginas.”
In the interview, the question that was asked to Paul Ryan:
“Specifically you’re pro-life. Specifically where do you stand when it comes to rape? When it comes to the issue of ‘should it be legal for a woman to get an abortion if’…[cut off by Ryan]“
To which Ryan responded with:
“I’m very proud of my pro-life record and I’ve always adopted the idea and position that a method of conception doesn’t change the definition of life.”
“…a method of conception.” As if it belongs classified next to making love, in vitro fertilization and all the types of in vitro such as SUZI (Sub-zonal insemination) which is typically used for males with low sperm count. There is no way that a pregnancy resulting from rape should be viewed or categorized as a “method of conception.”
Rape is an act of violence.
Paul Ryan: Rape Is Just Another ‘Method Of Conception’
I shudder to think what would happen to women’s rights if Romney and Ryan were to become President and Vice President. How any woman can vote for these two is beyond me. It is insane to vote for two people that will make life more difficult for you. Especially after all the ridiculous as well as hateful things that Romney has said lately. In all seriousness, how can ANYONE vote a man into the top office of our country who cannot understand why windows don’t roll down in planes? I’m serious – this is not a joking matter now. If he cannot comprehend something that most 5th-graders know, he should not run this country. Lately I think Romney looks like he also has a touch of dementia kicking in. Sorry… little of the topic of this post. Now back to Ryan and his methods of conception….
Now… Paul Ryan, I have something to say to you…
Rape is an act of violence, not a method of conception. Please stop trying to redefine this horrific act just to serve your personal beliefs and opinions you selfish, self-righteous bastard. Please, go away. Do not knock on the White House door ever again.
