Yes, again! Same shiz, different dummy!
Only this time, the ignorant remark about reproduction is actually coming from a Republican WOMAN!
Celeste Greig, president of the California Republican Assembly, was discussing her colleague Todd Akin's claim that women who are raped don't get pregnant because "the body has ways of shutting that whole thing down." Greig said:
"That was an insensitive remark. I'm sure he regretted it. He should have come back and apologized."
Yes! We're right there with you, gurl. Now please, we beg of you, don't say anything else! Too late! She said:
"Granted, the percentage of pregnancies due to rape is small because it's an act of violence, because the body is traumatized.
I don't know what percentage of pregnancies are due to the violence of rape. Because of the trauma the body goes through, I don't know what percentage of pregnancy results from the act."
What?? What??! Literally one breath after reproaching Akin's stupid, stupid remarks, she AGREED with them!
How did she not hear what she was saying? Why do Republicans persist in these ludicrous beliefs?
You'd think after Akin getting lambasted in the media and losing his election at least one of them would pick up a seventh grade Health textbook!
Especially one who actually HAS a female reproductive system!
