Sex and Your Congressman - Steven King

Steven King (R-IA) today stated his belief that illicit underage intercourse never results in pregnancy. Incest and statutory rape is, somehow, a magical guard against impregnation. Or so King believes. This statement was his way of defending Todd Akin.

Here is a story from 1998 where a 12 year-old girl was raped by her brother and got pregnant. Michigan, were it happened, prosecutors were sympathetic towards the brother, hoping to get a plea deal. However, they wanted to imprison the victim and force her to carry the baby until a judge intervened and allowed the girl to travel to Kansas (of all places) for an abortion.

Earlier, King advocated for legalizing dog fighting by observing dog fights were not as bad as kidnapping a 13 year-old girl off a swing set, raping her until she got pregnant, and taking her across state lines for an abortion. I guess statutory rape does result in pregnancy if in defense of dog fights.
