    The bill he and Akin co-sponsored would have limited federal funding for abortion coverage to only “forcible rape” — language that was removed from the bill after an uproar from women’s rights activists. Though he has since apologized for using the term “legitimate rape,” Akin’s wording was seemingly a nod to the notion of “forcible rape” being the only kind of rape worthy of protections.

    “Rape is rape. Rape is rape, period. End of story,” Ryan said when asked about the idea of “forcible rape” — language that existed in the bill Ryan supported.

    Pressed on what Ryan meant when he co-sponsored the bill, Ryan repeated himself: “Rape is rape, and there’s no splitting hairs over rape.”

    You loons are going to rape this issue for all it's worth. I think these threads outnumber the Obama accomplishment threads by tenfold.

    I posted it before....his amendment was to change from medicaid paying for abortions for the raped to excluding it paying for "forcible" rape without defining what forcible means.

    Forcible rape can include consensual sex, that's why it's hard to quantify.

    No tax dollars should be spent on abortion. Period!
