Don’t Ever Try to Tell Me There Isn’t a Double Standard.

Todd Akin had some ill-conceived and outdated ideas about the rate at which women conceive in the aftermath of rape, of which he’s been brutally disabused and for which he’s apologized.

On the other hand, the President of the United States holds the belief that a “fetus, or child — however you want to describe it” who has the ill grace to show “movement or some indication that, in fact, they’re not just coming out limp and dead” after an abortion procedure should be denied medical care until they finally cooperate by dying, a position for which he’s never apologized and probably still holds.

Yes, the words inside the quotes are the exact words spoken by then Illinois-State-Senator Barack Obama during a floor discussion of Illinois’ Born-Alive Infant Protection act. God knows, I certainly couldn’t have made them up.

Yet where is the outrage directed?

    And who can forget him using his daughters (of course no one else is allowed to mention them) when he said if they “made a mistake” he didn’t want them to be punished with a baby.

    Its sad and pathetic this adult man actually believed these things about pregnancy and rape, I feel sorry for him. It goes beyond politics and is just truly a wtf moment. You’re really going to defend Tod Aiken? It kind of invalidates every word that comes out of your mouth from here on out.

      It’s sad and pathetic that you don’t seem to care that an adult man said “‘fetus, or child — however you want to describe it’” who has the ill grace to show “‘movement or some indication that, in fact, they’re not just coming out limp and dead,’” and who then thinks that the best course of action is to just let the uncooperative “fetus, or child – however you want to describe it” die rather than provide it with medical care. So that pretty much invalidates for me anything that you might have to say on this or any other issue. Go find a moral compass somewhere and try it out.
