    (what is an "illegitimate" rape?


    Akins; “Legitimate” rape questions the legitimacy of a women being raped. Rape. The unlawful compelling of a person through physical force or duress to have sexual intercourse. 2. any act of sexual intercourse that is forced upon a person.
    Pregnancy is determined by time of ovulation and not state of mind of the woman.

    Because stupid fucks like Akin and Ryan try to pawn this kind of bullshit off on the voters. They sponsored a bill to make all abortions illegal, including cases of rape and incest. They have tried to start a movement to outlaw contraceptives. These people really want to go back to the nineteenth century.

    We need 1000 threads on this.
    We lose elections to Democrats because of damn fools like this.
    Abortion is a non issue and NO LAW stops abortion.
    Independent moderate women WIN ELECTIONS.
    Right to lifers do not care if Obama wins. They would like that as long as they get their kook Republican candidates like this clown to spread his ignorance.
    I OPPOSE abortion. As a conservative I OPPOSE government picking and choosing who gets one and who doesn't.
    As Neal Boortz correctly stated 2 decades ago, this is THE #1 ISSUE that put Obama and Clinton in office.
    Moderate women. In Muslim countries men run women's lives. The religous right wants the same thing in America.

    Paul Ryan wants to outlaw abortion in the case of rape or incest.

    Gadawg, he co-sponsored a bill that would deprive women of the most basic of rights with
    Akin.

    Your link LIES...it claims there is no legal definition of "forcible rape"....OOPS, there is!

    Justia :: Criminal Law Forcible Rape

    Forcible Rape—Rape by Force

    Definition: The carnal knowledge of a female forcibly and against her will.

    Carnal knowledge is defined by Black's Law Dictionary, 6th ed. as "the act of a man having sexual bodily connections with a woman; sexual intercourse." There is carnal knowledge if there is the slightest penetration of the sexual organ of the female (vagina) by the sexual organ of the male (penis).

    "Against her will" includes instances in which the victim is incapable of giving consent because of her temporary or permanent mental or physical incapacity (or because of her youth). The ability of the victim to give consent must be a professional determination by the law enforcement agency. The age of the victim, of course, plays a critical role in this determination. Individuals do not mature mentally at the same rate. For example, no 4-year-old is capable of consenting, whereas victims aged 10 or 12 may need to be assessed within the specific circumstances regarding the giving of their consent.


    THIS is the problem with you liberals...you always react so hysterically you can't even see reality.....
