Scott Walker tried to explain why he favors legislation that bans abortion after 20 weeks, even in cases of rape and incest.

“I mean, I think for most people who are concerned about that, it’s in the initial months where they’re most concerned about it,” Walker told reporters. “In this case, again, it’s an unborn life, it’s an unborn child and that’s why we feel strongly about it.” He said he is prepared to sign the legislation “either way” state lawmakers send it to him.

Issues surrounding rape and abortion have doomed candidates in the recent past, most notably in the case of Todd Akin, who coined the term “legitimate rape” and subsequently lost his Senate race in Missouri.

While these latest comments could help Walker move ahead of his fellow Republicans in states like Iowa, they are likely to come back to haunt him in a general election scenario against Hillary Clinton.

    “likely to come back and haunt him”??? Get serious.

  2. Hirightnow June 3rd, 2015 at 7:13 pm

    Yeah, right, Scott.
    I can see how this might play out; Woman gets raped, goes to police and says so, then goes to clinic/hospital to get an abortion. But, lo and behold, we’re so sorry(snicker), but we can’t be sure it was rape until there’s a conviction in a court of law! BTW the docket sounding will be in November.

    i know what’s next, they will seek to ban epi’s because the woman doesn’t experience the pain of real birth. i’ve experienced it, it hurts like know bodies business. and it wasn’t a choice, it was necessary that i have natural birth. these people can kiss my sweet brown butt!

          I was sure I’d gone too far and was gonna have to do a hommina-hommina job on what I meant to say and that I didn’t intend to imply there ever would be any raisinettes back there, and that I was thinking of something else and didn’t really mean it and don’t know what I meant; ending in me falling prostrate at your feet begging for mercy for being so damned stupid…..

            now i’m laughing harder!!!!!!!! a few tears to boot. lol

          • burqa June 3rd, 2015 at 11:01 pm

            You’re too kind. I’d much rathr have fun like this than get into knock-down-drag-outs with people.
            I wish you had been here when we had the Chat Room going. I used to stretch out there and get creative and we all had a lot of fun hanging out with our bunny slippers on.
            We’d be listening to the show and watching it, and on one of Alan’s monitors he would be watching what we were saying and sometimes he would join in.

            you’re good. i didn’t think you meant the way it was written at all. that’s why i laughed.

          • burqa June 4th, 2015 at 10:11 pm

            Heh heh, you’re good too.
            I’m good, you’re good, we’re good together.

            Did I just say we’re good together?
            I sure did!

    Way to lose the vote from those of us who think women have rights, Scott.

    Another instance of the lack of empathy on a con’s part. You can bet Scott would get an abortion pronto if it were possible for him to get pregnant after being raped.

    • whatthe46 June 3rd, 2015 at 9:36 pm

      or for his wife or daughter. especially if it were one of those immigrants coultergiest speaks so disgustingly about.

      • rg9rts June 4th, 2015 at 7:25 am

        Coulterrgiest…I like that one

    • fahvel June 4th, 2015 at 1:50 am

      maybe being raped would change his mind – free weekend at Soledad?

    • rg9rts June 4th, 2015 at 7:24 am

      Rights?? He took a page out of of Perry’s book and keep the little women silent and brought to heel.

  5. burqa June 3rd, 2015 at 7:57 pm

    I imagine the eventual GOP nominee will have a similar view and so it gets me to wondering what percentage of the female vote Hillary will get.
    I mean, right now it seems to me she has a very good chance of getting 70% or more…

  6. Budda June 3rd, 2015 at 8:14 pm

    “Unborn child”; that is a contradiction of terms you idiot.

  7. Obewon June 3rd, 2015 at 8:19 pm

    Koch bro Walker tried to explain why he favors (unconstitutional) legislation that bans abortion after 20 weeks, even in cases of rape and incest. SCOTUS proves he’s dumb.

  8. burqa June 3rd, 2015 at 9:55 pm

    Looking at the picture, does Walker have a bad hair stylist or is there some sort of growth on his skull at one o’clock, like maybe a goiter or something?

    • FightingFromTheLeft June 4th, 2015 at 5:41 pm

      He’s very quickly going bald. From an accident when he was doing some housework or some bs. Pretty sure his bald spot has its own fb page. And his wife does his hair.

      • burqa June 4th, 2015 at 10:07 pm

        I can see the hair loss, which is normal. But look at that great big lump at 1 o’clock! Tilt your screen about 25 degrees or so till his head is straight up and it is even more noticeable.

  9. liberalMD June 3rd, 2015 at 11:16 pm

    What an ass!!! Rape is an event that lives into perpetuity. Why force a woman who did not become pregnant of her own free will be forced to bear a fetus to term and then support the child for eighteen or more years? The act of rape is traumatic enough for a woman and that trauma alone will last her lifetime.

    I hope that if he has his way with the abortion issue at least he’ll have the decency to support the women that he forces into motherhood with ample social services. His track record to date doesn’t suggest that this is a trait he closely resembles.

    To social conservatives, if a woman or under-aged girl is sexually assaulted:

    1) Boys will be boys, and you cannot go against nature.
    2) She was probably dressed scantily and therefore had it coming.
    3) It was God’s will, so give thanks for the blessed event and welcome any resulting pregnancy.
    4) S**t happens, so suck it up and deal with it.
    5) No rape actually happened — the accusation is part of a feminist conspiracy to malign men
    6) Her body’s defenses will prevent her from becoming pregnant.
    7) There’s no need for “Plan B”-type contraception, because that’s what rape kits are for.
    8) What’s “rape”?

      just reading your list gives a person the creeps. This guys mind is an empty souless bag of detritus, i.e. christan.

    Scott, talk to me after you pass a watermelon-sized kidney-stone. Then maybe you might have some idea of what you are demanding women go thru because of what YOU believe.

  12. rg9rts June 4th, 2015 at 7:22 am

    He is well on his way to being the first candidate that will get no women’s votes except for mommy’s

  13. Jeffrey Samuels June 4th, 2015 at 9:34 am

    ‘LIKELY’ to haunt him. LOL, oh it will. It most definitely will; and he is not the only one. So many of the republican candidates are pandering to religious conservatives in ways that the general public will not accept, that they will find it difficult if not impossible to walk back these statements after they win the primary.

    Wanker forced his girlfriend to get a abortion before he dropped out of college.
