Rape kits are abortions

Crazy-ape-bonker politicians get it so horribly, horribly wrong once again.

Amid a heated debate over a restrictive anti-abortion bill being pushed by Texas GOP lawmakers, one Republican argued that a proposed exemption for rape victims was unnecessary because assaulted women could simply turn to rape kits for abortions.

"In the emergency room they have what’s called rape kits, where a woman can get cleaned out," said state Rep. Jodie Laubenberg

And this from a woman??? How is it she can be so ill informed. There aren't enough palms in this world for the facepalm required here.

Closer to home for me in Australia, all the states here have approved of the drug RU486, except the state I live in. About 6 months ago a whole bunch of medical practicions said to the government that they should legalise the use of RU486, but the then (male) Health Minister said no, on the grounds that he didn't like the idea of women having abortions in the toilet.

WTF??
You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

I know. Hilariously stupid. If she thinks it, many others do too. Rape kits collect evidence, not give abortions; if they did they'd (these idiots) be banning rape kits.

Seriously, where do these muppets get their info from? The back of a cereal box?? They open their mouths to take one foot out and insert the other, and I'm left spluttering in amazement. Its like watching a train wreck in slow motion.

They make it up. Seriously, it's the only explanation. Nobody is stupid enough to believe this crap unless they make it up themselves. Or maybe I'm giving mankind more credit than it deserves.

Too true.
The truth is absolute. Life forms are specks of specks (...) of specks of dust in the universe.
Why settle for normal, when you can be so much more? Why settle for something, when you can have everything?

Lack of sex ed in schools, religious nuts telling them so, blinders on.
Yo, put that in your pipe and smoke it.  Quit ragging on my Lord.

Sadly, I suspect this level of ignorance has always existed. It's just that it's more visible now, which in time (I'm an optimist) will lead to it being corrected and reduced. Or at least the ignorant being more careful about what they say in the age of the Internet.

Amazing... I think these politians turn to a 16 year old intern (see Nick's comment) and ask them a quick question on the topic at hand before walking on stage to give insane answers like this...

From Todd Akin, Missouri Senate candidate in 2012: "...was asked in a TV interview whether abortion should be legal in cases of rape. "From what I understand from doctors, that's really rare,” he replied. “If it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.""[1]

He lost...

I... I... just don't even know what to say; I'm completely gobsmacked here.  How can anyone really be that stupid?  This is just a whole 'nother level that I didn't even know was achievable by humans.  And this from a woman?

Long ago Republicans chose to institute an anti-intellectual requirement for all members of their party. Not a smart marketing move in a society that is becoming progressively more educated.

There's a sad amount of "don't worry, we'll think for you" going on on both sides of the aisle in Washington.  Sometimes I think they assume we have ALL taken some anti-intellectual pledge (some have, of course).

Ah yes, 'legitimate rape'... c'mon everyone, you all know the words!

You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
