Re: New Breast Cancer Restrictions - For Annie

Ok, it was Akin that made that statement, but Romney/Ryan are against women's rights, can't deny that. Since when is rape considered another form of conception?  Wonder how they would feel if their daughter was raped, and became pregnant from that rape. 


Running for the U.S. Senate in 1994, Romney insisted that "since Roe v. Wade has been the law for 20 years [...] we should sustain and support it." And again in 2002, running for governor in Massachusetts, Romney insisted that he would "preserve and protect a woman's right to choose" and vowed to "not change any provisions of Massachusetts' pro-choice laws."

But as governor, he betrayed those views, vetoing a bill that would have provided emergency contraception to rape victims and resisting the legislature's effort to specify that life begins when an embryo implants in the uterus. "I stood as a pro-life governor," Romney said earlier this year.

Romney's evolution on abortion sifted even further to the right once he began pursuing a presidential nomination from the increasingly conservative Republican Party, which states in its platform that rape victims should not be allowed access to abortion.

He's since endorsed a proposal to declare fertilized egg cells "people," called for the overturn of Roe v. Wade and picked a vice presidential candidate, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), who co-sponsored a bill that would have given federal assistance only to victims of what he called "forcible rape," and who said just last week that he sees rape as just another "method of conception."

Which statements are false, Lew?   This should be good.
And Ryan saying a women's body will reject a fetus conceived from rape ???
