During an appearance on CNN’s Piers Morgan, GOP presidential hopeful Ron Paul was asked whether as a man with daughters and granddaughters, would he think that abortion is warranted if a woman has been impregnated by a rapist.
“If it’s an honest rape,” Paul replied, “that individual should go immediately to the emergency room, I would give them a shot of estrogen.” He claimed, however, that if a woman is “seven months pregnant” and says that she was raped, “It’s a little bit of a different story.” Source
Um, exactly what constitutes “honest rape?” I thought rape was rape. Am I missing something? Is there dishonest rape? I remember a time when people thought former president Ronald Reagan was going to hit the switch to start World War III, but I think Ron Paul is a bigger threat than Ronald Reagan ever was.
