Rape Will Never Be Legitimate

It is unbelievable that anyone could possibly even suggest that there is such a thing as legitimate rape or that it is anyone's business, much less a Republican candidate to talk about it. I have always believed that it is arrogant of any man to make any decision, law or talking points on a TV show, about what a woman should do with her own body. Until a man can carry a baby, they should probably keep their opinions to themselves. But now these men have carried this intrusion into a woman's life way too far.

If a woman wants to prevent a pregnancy, she should have the right to birth control. If and until a fetus can live on its own from conception to birth, it is a woman's body and not a baby. She should be able to make a decision without interference from this religious biased government. Or from the tea party who seem to have the answer to all morality issues. Except how to stay out of everyone else's business. It is disturbing that anyone thinks they can make these moral and personal decisions for anyone else. It is even more disturbing that these people feel it is ok to go on TV and say something so ignorant as what this last nameless Republican said.

Not only does he sound like a fool, but he also visits his offensive views about "legitimate" rape and "bodily functions" of women on the rest of us. It is a painful indication of where the Republican Party is at. They have become over- confident, arrogant, and unpleasantly moralistic with other people's bodies and emotions. How dare he suggest that rape is anything but a horrific experience that scars a woman for life. That if someone gets pregnant, it shouldn't be considered legitimate rape, he just made women feel even more traumatized. Even more used and abused.

What is he thinking? Why did he think he had any right to talk about this subject at all? He needs to write on the blackboard 500 times, "Rape Will Never Be Legitimate," "Rape Will Never Be Legitimate!" Then he needs to excuse himself from being a candidate, as I cannot imagine anyone else in his district can believe in him. He is supposed to represent everyone in his district, even the women. I am sure he has lost all credibility with them.

Then he should beg the forgiveness of all woman and children who have been raped. Beg forgiveness for adding to their suffering with his thoughtless remarks. Then the Republican party should take a step back and see what they have wrought.
