Paul Ryan did not say "rape is just another method of contraception"


He said "the method of conception doesn’t change the definition of life."

Here's the full quote, including the question to which he was responding:

quote:

Question: “Specifically where you stand when it comes to rape, and when it comes to the issue of should it be legal for a woman to be able to get an abortion if she’s raped?” WJHL reporter Josh Smith wondered.

Answer: “I’m very proud of my pro-life record, and I’ve always adopted the idea that, the position that the method of conception doesn’t change the definition of life,” Ryan explained. “But let’s remember, I’m joining the Romney-Ryan ticket. And the president makes policy.”

“And the president, in this case the future President Mitt Romney, has exceptions for rape, incest, and life of the mother, which is a vast improvement of where we are right now.”
Whether you agree with him or not on exceptions for abortion (I, fwiw, do not agree with him), at least have the stones to stop lying about what he actually said.

Oh so the Col. LIED to make his absurd claim is what you are saying? Heaven forbid that a lib would lie about anything related to this election, its not like the Dems are spewing massive amounts of bovine feces as often as they can.

Yea, the spin is strong with this one.

Maybe slight hijack, but how is it acceptable to quote someone and only half of the statement is a quotation?

This is a perfect example.

Ryan said rape just another "method of conception."

How is that acceptable?

Why don't Republicans just refuse to talk about abortion like Democrats refuse to talk about gun control?

Nothing good is going to come out of it (especially in a general election) and it looks tacky for a white dude to be waxing poetic about his views on abortion in 2012.

It goes back to what I said earlier. The media are in desperation mode, frantically searching for ANYTHING they can use to change the national discourse about this election. Because if the national discourse is about Obama's job performance, Obama is going to lose the election and they know it.

So we get crap like this: Invented "quotes" fashioned by leftist propaganda dispensers into a new faux outrage for mouth breathers.

Because for every 1 reporter asking Democrats gotcha questions about gun control, there are 100 asking GOPs about abortion. Literally!

That is probably the best idea.

I do think it is a little harder to avoid talking about abortion than it is to talk about gun control. That is partly the fault of Republicans though.

This!

What is Ryan suppoed to do when asked this question in an interview? Really, what's he supposed to do? And why do you think the reporter was asking the question of a VP candidate? What does the VP have to do with abortion? Serioulsy, why do you think the reporter asked him the question? I'll tell you why. The reporter is looking for a story that eets two criteria:

1. It has to be something that will dominate the headlines for the next several days.

2. It has to be something that is damaging to conservatives.

MoveOn.org, baby.

I've already posted what he said. What is in your OP that was not shown in either my post or the article I linked??

1. He wasn't "waxing poetic." He was asked a direct question about abortion in an interview.

2. Why can't "white dudes" talk about abortion in 2012? That makes no sense.

Also I did not have "rape is just another method of contraception". I had "method of contraception" in quotes.

You're just using semantics here. The ABSOLUTE UNDISPUTED FACT here is he doesn't believe that women who are RAPED and become pregnant as a result should have the option to end the pregnancy.

This is your thread title:

quote:

Paul Ryan : Rape is just another "method of conception"
It's an absolute misrepresentation of the truth. The use of the quotation marks by the editor is a clever way of misleading the public. I don't know if you just fell for the trick, or if you knowingly engaged in misrepresenting the truth.

My thread gives the exact quote, with no misleading trickery or hidden agenda.

The word "just"

Big difference.

Example
"Murder is one of the ways we die"
vs
"Murder is just another way to die."

No, I'm trying to ensure that the truth is told here.

Truth, meet Toddy. Toddy, meet truth.

He does believe that. I disagree with him, but a lot of people agree with that POV. To some, life begins at conception and to end that life in the womb, regardless of how conception took place, is nurder. As I said, I disagree with that POV, but there is a logical consistency to it.

But the thread you started had nothing to do with that topic. Instead you used some hack website and a misleading use of quotation marks to try to make it sound like Ryan has no sympathy for rape victims. Shame on you.
