More wingnuts theories on when you can tell something is a rape
From No More Mr. Nice Blog, we find out that Kansas attorney general Phill Kline has finally addressed why, if he's really only looking for child rapists, that he's only looking at abortion records and not at birth records of underage girls. Kline said, "Screw it. You caught me. I don't give a rat's ass about getting child molesters off the street. This is about making the baby-murdering sluts pay for escaping the Biblically mandated pains of childbirth in return for their wanton behavior."
Just kidding. He's never going to tell the truth about what he's doing.
Instead, he offered up some standard issue wingnut reworking of psychology. You see, you can tell the sex was consensual if the girl carries the baby to term.
Kline said he doubted many child rapists would allow their victims to carry out their pregnancies. And he said his office would not prosecute consensual sexual activity between children of similar age.
"I have stated that repeatedly; we are looking for the child predators," Kline said. "You do not find child predators standing in a hospital as their prey gives birth to the child that they father. That's common sense."
Abortion clinics and rapists, working in hand in hand--first you take a girl's god-given virginity and then you take away her chance at motherhood. Kline and company may not be able to stop rape, but by god, they aren't going to let the doctors deprive girls of the chance to carry their attackers' children.
The best part of this quote is the just so story about childbirth--every girl, even the ones as young as 10, that have given birth in Kansas has a loving husband pacing back and forth in the waiting room in a blazer with his tie loosened, smoking a cigarette and hoping for word soon that his beloved has given him a son. Mr. and Mrs. Cleaver, with the Mrs. just pubescent.
Despite this compelling view that abortion indicates rape and childbirth indicates domestic bliss, I have to admit that I am confused on what the official scientific view of abortion and rape is from the anti-choicers. I mean, just the other day, we learned from a knowledgable fellow down here in Texas that rape victims don't need emergency contraception because they can't get pregnant anyway. I'm guessing that the Texas Allianance for Life wouldn't support Kline, because they know that there are no rape victims in abortion clinics. Right?
