Ben Carson on Abortion: No Exceptions for Rape or Incest

In an interview with Meet the Press, Chuck Todd asked Ben Carson about whether there should be exceptions for abortion, such as in cases where babies are conceived as a result of rape or incest. He responded: “Rape and incest, I would not be in favor of killing a baby because the baby came about in that way. And all you have to do is go and look up the many stories of people who have led very useful lives who were the result of rape or incest.” Less than 1% of all abortions are performed on Read more […]

Hillary Compares John Kasich to a Terrorist for Trying to Help Victims of Sexual Assault

Thursday, Hillary Clinton made what may be her most outrageous statement yet—if you can believe it. Clinton said: “The governor right here in Ohio banned state funding for some rape crisis centers because they sometimes refer woman to other health facilities that do provide abortions… Now, extreme views about women, we expect that from some of the terrorist groups, we expect that from people who don’t want to live in the modern world, but it’s a little hard to take from Republicans who Read more […]

Huckabee on 10-Year-Old Rape Victim’s Abortion Denial: “Does it Solve a Problem by Taking the Life of an Innocent Child?”

There’s a case in Paraguay involving a 10-year-old girl who was raped by her stepfather. She conceived, but she was denied an abortion by authorities. CNN’s Dana Bash wanted to know how Mike Huckabee would respond to the situation. Would he, being a white man in the Republican party, want to “force” the child to give birth to the product of an (essentially) incestuous rape? From The Blaze: The former Arkansas governor acknowledged during his “State of the Union” interview Sunday that Read more […]

When ‘Rape Culture’ Meets Reality

“Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.” – Aldous Huxley In a recent piece for Salon, Andrea Flynn argues that allowing “campus carry” is a kind of “victim blaming.” “…So far they’ve been silent on how we might prevent young men – who, of course, would also be allowed to carry a gun – from attempting to rape women in the first place…Let’s be clear. People aren’t raped because they aren’t carrying firearms. They are raped because someone rapes them. What a sinister Read more […]

We Can’t Let Women Carry Guns?

No Joke: Salon’s Andrea Flynn Argues That Letting Women Carry Guns On Campus Is Dangerous Because Then Rapists Will Also Have Guns! “A stupid man’s report of what a clever man says can never be accurate, because he unconsciously translates what he hears into something he can understand.” – Bertrand Russell As I clicked, and scanned various news pieces in order to decide today’s topic–and had come across several notable bits that piqued my interest–I was stopped dead in my digital tracks when Read more […]

Pizza Delivery Driver Kidnapped, Raped at Gunpoint

Being a pizza delivery driver is a very dangerous job, considering how much cash they carry and the fact that they work mostly at night. For this reason, many drivers carry guns, oftentimes in direct violation of their franchise’s rules. They value their lives a little more than their job. But out in California, gun control laws are a lot stricter than most other places. People don’t have as much of a tendency to “cling to their guns and religion” in California like they do in the South. Read more […]

The Hypocrisy of the Rape and Incest Exception

We should not let rape and incest leave babies’ lives unprotected. “No problem can withstand the assault of sustained thinking.” – Voltaire It’s extremely disheartening to see Republicans in the House of Representatives drop the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protect Act Resources bill on the same day as hundreds of thousands converged on Washington D.C. to march for the right to life. The bill would ban all abortions after 20 weeks—after which point extreme pain can be felt by the unborn child Read more […]

Why Won’t Lena Dunham Take Legal Action To Stop Her Rapist?

The way Lena Dunham is responding to her rape is hard to understand. “Throughout history, it has been the inaction of those who could have acted; the indifference of those who should have known better; the silence of the voice of justice when it mattered most; that has made it possible for evil to triumph.” – Haile Selassie What’s the point of speaking up, if not to accomplish something? When we voice concern over a matter of importance, we are looking to aid in a process of resolution. Concerning Read more […]

Why Prohibited from Questioning Alleged Rape Victims?

“It’s really time for people to understand that rape denialism is like Holocaust denialism: Broad refusal to accept reality.” – Amanda Marcotte How do you judge what is, or is not, reality? Human beings are a rash species, prone to making capricious judgments based on little more than speculation. We tend to take the side of those with whom we already agree; our convictions follow the preconceived desires of our hearts–and as the bible says, the heart is deceitful above all things. In other words, Read more […]

Product of Rape Takes Exception With Pro-lifers’ Rape Exception

A product of rape is a person! Don’t forget! Many pro-lifers say they’re pro-life except in certain cases like rape and incest. Then, all of a sudden it’s okay to murder the unborn child, who actually had nothing to do with its own conception, no matter how horrific the circumstances were surrounding its conception. The child himself or herself is not to blame for the mother being raped. You don’t punish the child in the case of a rape. You punish the rapist. Yet, what our society Read more […]

Traumatic Experience Turns New Jersey Couple from Gun Control Proponents into Gun Owners

Experience is a costly teacher. What could have been a life-ending experience for this New Jersey couple, ended up being a traumatic but life-changing event. The incident involved two suspects (one of them armed) who robbed a man, broke in his and his fiancée’s apartment, sexually assaulted his fiancée, and beat him unconscious before the two suspects fled the scene after the woman was able to call 911. Before the incident, the couple felt safe with surveillance cameras on the apartment Read more […]

As Young Lawyer, Hillary Clinton Defended Child Rapist She Knew Was Guilty

Back when Sen. Ted Cruz was a practicing lawyer, the state of Texas appointed him the defendant for a man by the name of Thomas Alfred Taylor, age 41. Cruz agreed to do it. Taylor had been accused of luring a 12-year-old girl into his car and raping her. Being accused of something does not mean you are guilty, of course. But according to newly discovered audio recordings, Cruz had no doubt in his mind that his client was guilty as sin. Taylor raped that 12-year-old, and Cruz admits he knew Read more […]
