"It's not the baby's fault for the sin of the father or of the mother," King said.
I actually agree with him. I think ANYONE who supports exceptions for rape and ------ is a bad person.
Either you believe that a fetus is a person, with rights, or you don't. I personally believe that a fetus is not a person since it is completely reliant upon the another specific person (the mother) to stay alive. Basically, I believe that the rights of the mother outweigh any rights the fetus has.
But, Republicans believe a fetus IS a person WITH rights. So far logically consistent (kinda crappy because you are decimating the rights of the mother, but Republicans are run by white males, what do they care about a woman's rights). BUT, they then want to make EXCEPTIONS for that designation of "personhood" BASED UPON the actions of the father (rape) or of both parents (------).
Lets take the case of rape. Why is this child not a "person" because of the actions of its father? If my father raped someone (today), should that woman have the power to have me executed (because I am his son and apparently it is OK with Republicans to execute children for the sins of the father)?
You can make the argument either way on "pro-choice" vs "pro-life". But I think exceptions for rape and ------ are absolutely evil.
