    Yep... plus he is a former law enforcement officer.

    "A Missouri state lawmaker was met with hisses when he used the phrase "consensual rape" during a highly charged House debate on a bill that would ban abortions at eight weeks, including in cases of rape and incest.

    Republican Rep. Barry Hovis, of Cape Girardeau, said in the chamber Friday that most of the sexual assaults he handled before retiring from law enforcement weren't strangers "jumping out of the bushes" but instead "date rapes or consensual rapes.""

    Missouri lawmaker tries to walk back 'consensual rape' remark

    These are the idiots making laws for people...



    Can someone please define consensual rape?

    Well there is an oxymoron if I’ve ever heard one. He must be related to Todd Aiken, the “legitimate rape” expert

    On a related note, a YouTube video of a YouTube video is the technological equivalent of inbreeding.

    Consensual Rape?
    How is that a "mutual" rape? :aug08_031:

    Maybe he didn't actually say "consensual rape," it is like that old game telephone where the message gets changed through passing it along... Maybe he actually said non-consensual rape? :wink_2::wink:

    I'm waiting for MindWars to post that the video was edited.

    I wonder if he was trying to talk about statutory rape.

    Since he mentioned date rape before that, I think he is talking about rape when the woman is in such a condition she can't say no... like too drunk, on drugs, or passed out.

    Never heard of such a thing. However, the mother should be directed to consider the life of James Smithson. He was born out of wedlock but became a scientist, but never felt he belonged to British society because they turned away from him due to the details of his birth. He responded by leaving his fortune by proxy to the young Country, America, for a museum of science in his name.

    Even so, he knew he had a legacy due to his life of study and dedication to the sciences.

    Here is James' Smithson's legacy:

    The Smithsonian museums are the most widely visible part of the United States' Smithsonian Institution and consist of 20 museums and galleries as well as the National Zoological Park.[1] 17 of these collections are located in Washington D.C., with eleven of those located on the National Mall. The remaining ones are in New York City and Chantilly, Virginia. As of 2010, one museum, the Arts and Industries Building, is closed in preparation for a substantial renovation,[1] and its newest museum building, the National Museum of African American History and Culture, opened in 2016.[2]

    The birth of the Smithsonian Institution can be traced to the acceptance of James Smithson's legacy, willed to the United States in 1826. Smithson died in 1829, and in 1836, President Andrew Jackson informed Congress of the gift, which it accepted. In 1838, Smithson's legacy, which totaled more than $500,000, was delivered to the United States Mint and entered the Treasury. After eight years, in 1846, the Smithsonian Institution was established.[3]

    The Smithsonian Institution Building (also known as "The Castle") was completed in 1855 to house an art gallery, a library, a chemical laboratory, lecture halls, museum galleries, and offices.[4] During this time the Smithsonian was a learning institution concerned mainly with enhancing science and less interested in being a museum. Under the second secretary, Spencer Fullerton Baird, the Smithsonian turned into a full-fledged museum, mostly through the acquisition of 60 boxcars worth of displays from the Centennial Exposition in Philadelphia. The income from the exhibition of these artifacts allowed for the construction of the National Museum, which is now known as the Arts and Industries Building. This structure was opened in 1881 to provide the Smithsonian with its first proper facility for public display of the growing collections.[5]

    The Institution grew slowly until 1964 when Sidney Dillon Ripley became secretary. Ripley managed to expand the institution by eight museums and increased admission from 10.8 million to 30 million people a year.[6] This period included the greatest and most rapid growth for the Smithsonian, and it continued until Ripley's resignation in 1984.[6] Since the completion of the Arts and Industries Building, the Smithsonian has expanded to twenty separate museums with roughly 137 million objects in their collections, including works of art, natural specimens, and cultural artifacts.[1] The Smithsonian museums are visited by over 25 million people every year.[1]

    Museums[edit]
    Eleven of the 19 Smithsonian Institution museums and galleries are at the National Mall in Washington D.C., the open-area national park in Washington, D.C. running between the Lincoln Memorial and the United States Capitol, with the Washington Monument providing a division slightly west of the center.[1] Five other Smithsonian museums and the National Zoo are located elsewhere in Washington. Two more Smithsonian museums are located in New York City and one is located in Chantilly, Virginia.

    The Smithsonian also holds close ties with 171 museums in 41 states, as well as Panama and Puerto Rico.[1] These museums are known as Smithsonian Affiliates. Collections of artifacts are given to these museums in the form of long-term loans from the Smithsonian. These long-term loans are not the only Smithsonian exhibits outside the Smithsonian museums. The Smithsonian also has a large number of traveling exhibitions. Each year more than 50 exhibitions travel to hundreds of cities and towns all across the United States.[1]

    My point (above) was one brave woman who had her baby outside people's approval and furnished another country a benefactor who established a program due to his life dedicated to science to another foundling country--America, and benefitted the people who were also turned away from his country like trash, and today, we have the finest museum and science collaboration in the Smithsonian Institution, world famous for this one man whose mother chose life for him, even if it broke his heart to learn people hated illegitimate children who had no voice, no choice, but they lived and worked and excelled in higher things and gave the world an unparalleled gift.

    I am so grateful to God for letting America do his will of helping widows, cast off women, and their fatherless children. He gave us a gift because he knew many Americans came here cast out by their societies who didn't want them, and he wanted his name and spirit of accomplishment known here. Pardon me, but I have tears welling up and can say no more than this in the behalf of unborn Americans--they deserve better than to be extinguished, because one of them might be another Smithson, another might find a permanent cure for Cancer that is cost effective for anyone who gets the disease, and another might convince people to engage in a higher level of living by doing the right things known to men of yore who gave us all the wisdom they had put into a book we now call the Good Book.
