Chuck Winder, Idaho Lawmaker, Suggests Women Use Rape As Excuse For Abortions

The sponsor of an Idaho mandatory ultrasound bill, state Sen. Chuck Winder,
made some highly controversial comments Monday during his closing arguments,
suggesting women might falsely use rape as an excuse to obtain an abortion.
Just before the Idaho's Senate passed the bill, which requires woman to have
an ultrasound prior to obtaining an abortion, opponents of the bill pointed out
that it makes no exception for rape victims, incest victims or women in medical
emergencies.
Winder, a Republican from Boise, responded to those concerns by raising the question of
whether women understand when they have been raped.
“Rape and incest was used as a reason to oppose this," Winder said on the
Senat

  • America's Republicans really do seem to be a bunch of odious, misogynistic lowlifes.

  • It is tough to see a political party fall so fast so hard. It's truly like they have become so detached from the lives of ordinary people that they think what they see on reality show is really the way it is.

    I almost feel bad for them but if the old dog cant stand anymore maybe its time for them to end their sufferring and let another party step up and fill the void they are leaving.

  • What da hell is wrong with these GOP guys??
    Are they really that desperate to give Obama another four years??

    For the last few months their focus has shifted from 'Jobs' and 'the economy' to Women's issues.
    The success they've experienced in 2010 on the back of the Tea Party will evaporate this time around because of the constant bashing and intrusion they're spearheading against half of the voting public (women).

    After checking my reliable Chrystal Ball, I see Obama re-elected and House going More..

  • Last three sentences would be hard to argue with, if you chose to.
    Touchy subject for a man to assert his oppinion without looking like a Woman disrespect-er, that sucks because we men have no way of reproducing without you!! If a guy knocks up a girl and the girl decides she is not in a position in life to be a Mother but the guy feels otherwise....he may have lost his only chance, where as she will have all the opportunity in the world to try again any time.

    how's that for a ramble?....sucs, More..
