Paul Ryan to Women: Rape and incest or“health of the mother” No Abortions! “But forget all that; I’m the #2 guy on the ticket”


Abortion is a bad word this week after the comments by Missouri state Senate candidate Todd Akin made the comment of women being able to shut down    (““If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down”).

Ladies,( I bow my head) there are some men who believe this.

One such man is Mitt Romney choice for Vice President ( the man who would be a heart beat from the presidency)  Paul Ryan.

He opposes all abortions even when a mother life is in danger.  “I’m very proud of my pro-life record,” . “I’ve always adopted the idea, the position, that the method of conception doesn’t change the definition of life.” 

“The health exception is a loophole wide enough to drive a Mack truck through it,” Ryan said in a 2000 floor speech in support of a late-term abortion ban. “The health exception would render this ban virtually meaningless.”

“Let’s remember, I’m joining the Romney-Ryan ticket and the president makes policy,”  “And in this case, the future president Mitt Romney has exceptions for rape, incest and life of the mother. Which is a vast improvement of where we are right now.”      Paul Ryan position is much like those of Todd Akin.

His voting record on reproductive life has been consisting throughout his career in public office.

The Republican assault of women is alarming. ON TUESDAY, a federal appeals court lifted preliminary injunction against a measure that excludes Planned Parenthood clinics in Texas from receiving state funds.

In March, Gov. Rick Perry (R) announced that his state would rather forfeit $35 million in annual federal funding for the Women’s Health Program — a Medicaid waiver program that provides low-income women with contraceptives and cancer screenings — than see any more state tax dollars go to a supposedly pro-abortion organization.

 Planned Parenthood appealed, but Texas now has the authority to defund the organization. Bottom line: Hundreds of thousands of poor Texas women are likely to be denied a health-care provider because of their state’s ideological zeal.

Moved to the Big Tomata in the nineties from San Francisco. No Suburbs for me with its single colored houses and lawns and the excitement of pulling out my trash can once a week. I'm a CityFella , a part time New Yorker. I'm happiest in the Center City where people the streets and people are alive. I'm still waiting to buy a 34th floor condo somewhere downtown/Midtown with a nightclub. "Hurry I'm old" My politics are somewhere in the middle with a needle that constantly moves. I'm too liberal to be a Republican and too conservative to be a Democrat. Everything interests me . I've come to love Sacratomato, Its a nice town in cheap sensible shoes .
