Paul Ryan Still Believes in Forcing Rape Victims to Give Birth to Their Rapists' Children
In an interview yesterday with Pittsburgh’s KDKA, Paul Ryan took the opportunity to stand behind his record of trying to force rape victims who get pregnant to give birth to their rapists’ children. Ryan, speaking with KDKA political editor Jon Delano, said he would follow the lead of Romney, who supports an exception for rape. But he made it clear that he doesn't personally support one.
Ryan’s record on reproductive rights is virtually identical to that of Todd “legitimate rape” Akin. Both oppose abortion in the case of rape, and the GOP platform committee yesterday reaffirmed this position on behalf of the entire party.
Delano: “Should abortions to be available to women who are raped?”Ryan: “Well, look, I’m proud of my pro-life record. And I stand by my pro-life record in Congress. It’s something I’m proud of. But Mitt Romney is the top of the ticket and Mitt Romney will be president and he will set the policy of the Romney administration.”Delano: “Despite Ryan’s views, Romney says he will allow exceptions for rape and incest."Delano: "Ryan says women won’t fall for these side issues."Ryan: "And I don’t think they’re going to take the bait of all these distractions that the President is trying to throw at them."
