How can a few Republican men control the whole woman's movement, and take American women back over a hundred years.

If Todd Adkins worked with Paul Ryan to formulate a Legitimate Rape defensive stand to deny abortions then these offensive men need to be taught how a woman reproduces. I guess they never had sex education in their backgrounds.

Legitimate Rape Is An Abomination


Political men role models, who speak out for women.

Saying there is legitimacy in some forms of rape

That these women do not get pregnant needing abortions

That maybe, being on birth control, lowers the offence.


A Republican platform states there will be no abortions

Taking a Catholic stand that promotes total abstinence

While eliminating social programs promoting birth control

That women conceiving have less rights than the unborn child.


Republicans saying incest, illegitimate rape, and a mother’s risk

Does not justify aborting the fetus, even to save the woman.

That if one must succumb then, possibly both will have to die.

Doctors will have no choice in pregnant life and death situations.


What kind of insanity are these right wing political zealots

That would take us back to the Dark Ages in Women’s Rights.

Let these self righteous men do some hard time incarceration

And God forbid feel the Legitimate Rape of Sodom Abomination.

It's been a long hard struggle for women, but reason will prevail. The world over many women still suffer under the thumbs of their loving spouses, churches, and institutions. But cracks in those barriers are opening and as the outcry to Akins's idiocy grows, we are learning the power of women to overcome their long-standing suffering under the misguided ignorance of men.

I understand and agree with what you say about rape David. There is no such thing as legitimate rape in my mind. I would like to point out though, that most republicans, men and women, immediately demanded his resignation. This is not something Rebublican men as a group, approve of or agree with at all. It is dispicable. Thank you so much for your eliquent concern for womankind. Be well, Kathy
