Steve Deace, one of the nearly countless number of little mini-Limbaughs around the country, spoke to a conference put on by Lutherans for Life recently and used this staggeringly stupid analogy for why women should be forced to give birth to their rapist’s child.
“And might I tell you if you listen to nothing else I say today, there is no such thing as pro-life with exceptions,” he said last month in Iowa at the Lutherans For Life National Conference. “It doesn’t exist. If you’re pro-life with exceptions you’re just pro-choice with fewer choices.”
“That’s really what that is,” Deace continued. “And if you think I’m wrong – OK — how about we put forth a pro-life bill that will save every kid but those born to Muslims? They are only 0.7 percent of the population. In fact, there are more kids conceived in rape or incest in America – about one percent – than the total population of Muslims in America.”
“So we make rape and incest exceptions all the time and say those things don’t matter, so why don’t we just put forth pro-life bills that say, ‘Hey, if you’re a Muslim you can abort your kid if you want, we will let you kill it.’ Why wouldn’t we do that? Why isn’t that the same thing?”
Really, Steve? You can’t conceive of why those two things are entirely different? Clearly rationality lies well beyond your grasp.
