    Forcible Rape ( Paul Ryan ) vs. Legitimate ( Todd Akin ). Is there much of a difference?

    Can anyone explain it?

    I've not paid any attention to this topic. But, if someone used the phrase "legitimate rape", I'd assume it was a poor way of saying forcible rape.

    I agree.

    So why has Ryan suddenly changed his view on this?

    He feels the exact same way about rape that Akin does..

    And during the debates Romney flip flopped on abortion and threw is lot in with the Ryan/Akin view point.

    Why have they all changed?

    It had to do with statutory rape v. ‘forcible’ rape, where the former might result in a pregnancy from an otherwise ‘consensual’ sexual relationship between a minor and adult.

    As we know Federal funding is prohibited with regard to paying for abortions, with some exceptions, rape being one of them. By eliminating statutory rape from the exemption, as Paul Ryan sought to do as an original co-sponsor of the ‘No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act,’ funding could be withheld for abortions where minors became pregnant as a consequence of statutory rape, thus placing greater restrictions on the procedure, and expanding government authority into our private lives.

    Can't opinions evolve, or is that reserved only for Obama and Democrats?

    You are a retard, legitimate rape as opposed to saying you got raped, ala the Duke Lacross case. Morons like you wouldnt get that distinction I know, but he didnt want a bunch of people using the rape clause as a way to get an abortion.

    It's no game.

    Ryan's position isn't much different then Akins.
