Really! An experienced childcare worker and she called her neighbor first instead of 911. I wonder what the verdict would have been if this had been a male.
Karl Rove joked, “We should sink Todd Akin. If he’s found mysteriously murdered, don’t look for my whereabouts!” This was one of many statements that Karl Rove made according to an article titled Exclusive: Inside Karl Rove's Billionaire Fundraiser in Bloomberg Business Week. The article is definitely worth reading to get some insight into the exposed underbelly of this nation's politics and their dark, seamy, often hidden agenda. It should come as no surprise that the Farm Bureau is reconsidering their backing of Akin.
I'm not giving my opinion on abortion. My comment pertains to legitimate rape vs non legitimate rape and whether or not women can get pregnant from that rape. Actually, the pro-life movement is damaging their own image when they make the assertion that women rarely get pregnant from a legitimate rape based on unproven facts.
Whoops! I left out a part in #1. If you are a female who has reached puberty and you are ovulating or very near ovulating and sperm enters the birth canal you are subject to becoming pregnant.
The only thing I know to tell you is this. If you are explaining rape to your son or daughter,which statistics would you use? I say son or daughter because, sadly rape happens to males particularly little boys as well as females. But anyway,if they are around the age of puberty and they think that you are just being a paranoid parent, which statistics or studies would you go to? . A respected site such as the CDC. Or, would you go to the Physcians for Life website and cite their statistics that are based on a chapter in a book written by Dr. Fred Mecklenburg. Dr Mecklenburg based his theory of legitimate rape on supposed experiments done by the Nazi's on women in concentration camps. They subjected the women to mock killings to see if it hindered their ovualation and a high number of the women did not ovulate. Thus, Dr Mecklenburg came to the conclusion that women that have been legitimatlly raped have an extremely rare chance to get pregnant due to the mental distress that they endure. Physcian for Life has been repeating this for over thirty years even though none of it is based on facts. They may have left out the part about Nazi experiments.
Same comment on this as my comment on Opinion: Defiant Akin fractures GOP unity.
I can't help but get mad as he__ everytime I see this man's name. I think he intentionally spoke what he believes. I think he wanted to come to this conclusion and he found a way to do it by reading this junk by the far right and choosing to believe it. To believe this propaganda you would have to want to believe it or be too lazy to do the research and come to a logical conclusion on the subject of rape. He could have and should have known the facts. He is an engineer. Engineers have a code of ethics. Three of those are:
1. Avoid deceptive acts. 2.Conduct themselves honorably, responsibly, ethically, and lawfully so as to enhance the honor, reputation, and usefulness of the profession and 3. Issue public statements only in an objective and truthful manner. As an engineer he would be neglecting his professional duty by not making decisions based on integrity and detachment.
Professions such as doctors, lawyers, nurses, engineers use logic to examine ideas and to develop theories and explanations in their professional life as well as their personal life. It's just second nature. Only thing I can figure he chose to follow" far- right group think" for political gain
