Another day, another Republican seeking a US Senate seat who must sound off on the evils of having babies without getting married. For Todd Akin in Missouri, there are benefits in rape since the victim might have a child and God’s work to produce children is fulfilled. Tom Smith, who is seeking the US Senate seat in Pennsylvania, compared having a baby out of wedlock to being raped. His daughter had a baby without being married and he is proud that she kept the baby.
According to Smith, his daughter is to be praised because “she chose life.” Mr. Smith would like women who are raped and become pregnant to keep their child. In so doing they honor life! These sick men want to take over the American government and introduce their crazy ideas.
