Just two questions:
1. How can a woman be a Republican any more than a woman can be a Muslim?
2. “Forcible” rape? As opposed to the other kind?
This paragraph in particular stands out to me:
“What is very disturbing to me is that people like Mr. Akin who have postulated this secret mechanism for avoiding pregnancy have developed their own make-believe world of science based on entirely self-serving beliefs of convenience or just ignorance,” he said. “I don’t think we want these people to be responsible for the lives of others.”
Sounds too much like too many versions of religion.
