Rep. Steve King: I Have Never Heard Of Teenagers Getting Pregnant Except The Ones I Described


Rep. Steve King (R-IA) has defended Missouri Senate candidate (for now) Todd Akin by going a step further and claiming that a ladycannot get pregnant from statutory rape or incest either!

King supports the "No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act." It would ban Federal funding of abortions except in cases of forcible rape. Right now, Medicaid also covers abortions for victims of statutory rape or incest - for example, a 12 year old who gets pregnant.

Congressman King says he's not aware of any young victims like that.

"Well I just haven't heard of that being a circumstance that's been brought to me in any personal way, and I'd be open to discussion about that subject matter," he said.

That is strange, because he was super sure about how terrible it was that liberals wanted forced abortions for thirteen year olds THREE WEEKS AGO.

Here is what Steve King, who serves in Congress, said then, vis a vis dogfighting, which Steve King loves so much he would marry it if it weren't for Rick Santorum:

In explaining himself, King argues that animals have more rights than fetuses, and suggests that

liberals have so devalued life, that a man can rape a young girl, kidnap her, force her to undergo an abortion across state lines, and then “drop her off at the swingset….and that’s not against the law in the United States of America.”

(It has of course already been suggested that if those things are not against the law in the United States of America, perhaps Steve King could spend some time trying to craft some bills to make them so!)

At this point, the arch-conservative belief that nobody ever has to deal with pregnancies in situations that make conservatives uncomfortable isn't a simple matter of believe cute things you get in e-mail forwards. It is vagina denialism. IT IS VAGINALISM.

This is dangerous to women not because crazy dudes are saying weird things that make ladies feel bad. This is dangerous because fucking idiots who didn't understand sex ed are possibly going to be making laws and regulations that will govern the lives and health of half of America for decades to come. AND THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND SPERM AND EGGS AND JESUS H. LOVING MERCIFUL CHRIST I AM GOING TO JUST PUNCH THINGS NOW.

The Church of Scientology had some thoughts about Our Robyn's piece, Who Wants To Watch A Creepy White Guy Rap About Scientology? We had some thoughts about their thoughts.

Thanks for writing in, Scientology! As you doubtless realized when you didn't demand we take down our story, but requested it instead, our opinions of your weird cult and that poor young man's rap skills are protected by the First Amendment. (I learned about libel law in college and grad school but also on the job: I was in newspapers so long that I was actually colleagues with Tony Ortega -- about whom you sound quite "venomous" and "biased" -- at the very same newspaper chain you can't believe he defended! Next up, please show your due diligence by talking trash about a woman you didn't know was my mom.)

Also, a lot of your former members say on the record that you kidnap people, and stalk them, and harass them, and sometimes beat them up good, and I request that if so, fucking stop it.

The rest of you click the headline, if you want your OPEN THREAD.

Monday's Trump-Putin press conference landed on the entire free world like a hot treason-shaped turd, didn't it? Congressional Republicans have been saying mean things about it on Twitter, and even Fox News has been less than 100% supportive! The White House communications department obviously knew it had a crisis on its hands, what with how it's generally considered inappropriate for the leader of the free world to get on all fours in front of the Russian president and wag his tail and slobber with anticipation while he awaits his next marching orders. WOMP WOMP, etc.

So the comms department typed up a thing for the president to read aloud today at the beginning of his meeting with members of Congress, about how he was VERY SORRY he said one word incorrectly during the Putin presser. That's right, only one word of that whole fucking shitshow was wrong. All the rest of his traitor words were exactly what he meant to say.
