While Romney and Ryan are back-pedaling away to distance themselves from Akin's bizarre uttering that rape cannot result in pregnancy due to magical secretions in women's bodies, it must be remembered that Ryan and the current TGOP Congress endeavored to make this idea the law of the land recently. In this way, they sought to eliminated the rape and incest exceptions to abortion. After all, if a woman is pregnant, that is definitive proof that she was not raped:
Representatives Paul Ryan (R-Dark Ages) and Todd Akin (R-2000 BC) were proud co-sponsors of HR-3. For those fuzzy on the significance of the nomenclature, “HR” stands for “House of Representatives” and the “3” identifies it as the third bill presented by this congress. In short, it was one of the first and most urgent orders of business of the GOP House that came to power in 2010. HR-3 contained language of “legitimate rape” and sought to revise the legal definition of rape. In essence, the bill endeavored to legally establish – yes, as law of the land – that a woman could not become pregnant due to rape. Thus, if an alleged rape victim was impregnated, said pregnancy was proof positive that she was not raped. Based on this brilliant “medical” breakthrough by unlicensed obstetricians Drs. Ryan and Akin, exceptions for rape and incest could be tossed out of state abortion law without repercussion, since this phenomenon is now deemed physically impossible. Thirteen Blue Dog Democrats and every last House Republican voted in favor of HR-3.
