Paul Ryan Defends His Abortion Record In The General Elections

At the end of the following video Paul Ryan says 'The President sets policy and HE wants to support abortions for victims of rape and incest' (making it clear to his base that he still supports rapist babies and incest!)...

On a side note... did you know that the GOP is cut social & civil services in every State they are in to the point where child abuse is INCREASING? Texas has been under GOP rule the longest and is now the largest child abuser amongst ALL the States (& possibly the whole world, except war zones)

From Dallas News: Texas child abuse, neglect deaths soar 31 percent

From the "Center for Public Policy Priorities": PDF Document showing that "Compared to Other States, Texas Has A Higher Rate Of Child Deaths from Abuse and Neglect"

Background {Added 11 April}: 

The Invisible War (Military Rape) & The Violence Against Women Act 

 "Proven: GOP / Republicans Support Rapists & War"

Given that child abuse towards children is on the rise in the US how can anyone rationalize not aborting 'statutory rape' cases? There are jokes about Southern incest that I heard in Oklahoma... but to make it legal is just crazy!

Introduction to US Child Abuse Cases

Why is the problem of violence against children so much more acute in the US than anywhere else in the industrialised world, asks Michael Petit, President of Every Child Matters.

By The Way...

Akin hasn’t changed Paul Ryan’s mind

In an interview, the vice-presidential nominee stands by his record opposing abortion in all cases, including rape

The biggest loser of Rep. Todd Akin’s comments on rape and abortion may not be Akin himself, but Rep. Paul Ryan, whose hard-line anti-choice views have suddenly become clear and well known in light of the controversy. Despite Ryan’s staunch antiabortion record, which includes co-sponsoring antiabortion bills with Akin, the congressman has been able to get by for years in Washington on an image of being a green eyeshades budget wonk — the serious adult in the room who wants to focus on fiscal issues without getting distracted by divisive social issues. He can kiss that image goodbye, as Democrats are sure to keep Ryan’s abortion views front and center between now and Election Day, and every day Akin is on the ballot is a reminder of that.
The new attention on the issue also puts Ryan in the awkward spot of disagreeing with presumed presidential nominee Mitt Romney, whose campaign said in the wake of Akin’s comments, that a Romney administration would not seek to outlaw abortion for women who have been raped. Ryan has long believed and voted for a total abortion ban, with no rape exception. In an interview last night with a Pittsburgh PBS affiliate, first flagged by ThinkProgress, Ryan was asked if he thought abortion should be available to women who have been raped. “Well, look, I’m proud of my pro-life record. And I stand by my pro-life record in Congress. It’s something I’m proud of. But Mitt Romney is the top of the ticket and Mitt Romney will be president and he will set the policy of the Romney administration,” he replied.
