you answered my question, sequoia. This is progress. Yet, its almost same song second verse in that these are general statements you make of Perry and Akin that again sounds like you think they are phony. I can only conclude that after alot of reading, studying, analysing - you conclude this is who they are. Do you think at any time they were genuine about what they said?
asb - you are welcome here and I am appreciative that you so kindly commented. Seems some clarification is important here - on my part. The comments sequioa made that I am referring to when I said 'implicates total and complete desception.' are the following:
-'Both these guys are flippant and casual and proudly ignorant about things that really matter. So-called conservatives cheer the person who can say the most careless thing. They cheer the guy who doesn't do his homework'.
In these paragraphs, she is saying Akins and Perry are deceptive - that they are phony. As I see it, this is a very serious allegation - that to the very core this is who they are. It raises questions for me - is this the view of all 'conservatives' - they are phony?
Thanks eileen. I wish you well also - and your family. It sounds like our families have much in common - given this conversation and your loved one in Afghanistan. I am familiar with that one too. Best wishes for all!
Sequoia - you provide a perspective that implicates total and complete disception. Is this something you identify with 'conservatives' only?
So kind of you - ticked pink. I read the last site you listed. I am surprised to see how quickly people have posted such information on the internet. Thank you, Tickled Pink. While this particular article doesn't go into the physiological response, the statistics are interesting. For sure, Todd Akin is guilty of saying pregnancy from rape is rare. Over 30,000 pregancies/year as a result from rape is alot of pregnancies. It is a lot of new people. Proportionally some might considered it a small number. This discussion and article certainly raises additional questions for me along these lines.
Well, it sounds like its more common knowledge than I thought! What does the research say?...besides 'BS' - what are the details?
The reproductive system is part of the whole body. What happens during the fight/flight response? I don't know the details of this. Is this what the doctors were referring to when Todd Akin spoke with them? I don't know. It isn't common knowledge.
Thanks, eileen. I am also highly educated in the medical field. I have heard medical organizations come out against his statement. Until I hear a discussion about the physiology of the fight/flight response, I cannot discount this man for his comments. I am taking him at his word that he actually spoke with physicians about this. I would like more information.
Right now, I am still going to vote for him. Back when there were the stimulus and bail out votes, he voted the way I would've like people to vote. No.
eileen: speak for yourself - you don't speak for me! Before I agree or disagree with his comments, I would like to gather more information. Who were the doctors he talked with? What was that discussion?
Quite honestly, I honor any woman who has been 'legitamately raped' and carries the fetus to term then raises it as her own. That has got to be the purest form of Love there is!
Oh and about the 'legitamately raped', I concluded his reasons for saying this were because some women actually lie about being raped. Sad and true.
It isn't clear what Perry has to do with this discussion - since you bring it up - I interpreted his momentary blank a result of intense campaigning. Sometimes people experience this. So why the big deal about Perry?
