    Yes, he's clearly out of his mind. He's the Ned Flanders of the bunch.

    Plenty of Women have done just that. Had the Kid and Made a good thing out of a bad one. What's wrong with that? Why do you have to want all children of Rape to be Aborted?

    What is wrong about what he said? it is still her Child. Just because some asshole rapped her does not mean half the DNA that made the kid wasn't hers. It does not mean if she has the kid she wont love it. Some might not, Some might. Woman should make the Decision on a case by case Basis. But I see no problem with encouraging woman to think about Keeping the kid, and trying to find something good that come out of something so bad. Like a Child to love and cherish.

    While I totally get what you're saying... the simple fact is that it is an outrage to force a woman in that situation to have the child. It's fine and dandy in theory... but it's real life to some women. I would hope that they would have the courage to have the child and put it up for adoption... but never in a million years would I dare look that woman in the eye and say 'you MUST have this kid'. And I am seriously pro life. To me, there would be no decision... but I am not other women and they have the right to choose differently. That's part of being a conservative.

    How would you like being a pod for a lunatic's baby? I believe that's best left up to the pod - the woman!

    And you would have them do what? Spend the rest of their lives being "a rape victim"? When did perpetual victimhood become a viable choice for people?

    Unless rape gives you "lemonAIDS".

    These right wingers. Are they sane? One wonders.
