I wonder if Republican U.S. Senate candidate Dave Westlake, who has made it abundantly clear he’s 100% opposed to abortion, even if a woman is a victim of rape or incest, agrees with Republican U.S. candidate Sharron Angle of Nevada, who in speaking about her 100% opposition to abortion compared forcing a rape victim to carry her rapist’s baby to turning a “lemon situation into lemonade:”
Stock: What do you say then to a young girl, I am going to place it as he said it, when a young girl is raped by her father, let’s say, and she is pregnant. How do you explain this to her in terms of wanting her to go through the process of having the baby?
Angle: I think that two wrongs don’t make a right. And I have been in the situation of counseling young girls, not 13 but 15, who have had very at risk, difficult pregnancies. And my counsel was to look for some alternatives, which they did. And they found that they had made what was really a lemon situation into lemonade.
Yeah, because nothing says “making lemons into lemonade” like forcing victims of rape and incest to carry their perpetrators’ babies to full term!
