    This idiot got an average 94 percent rating from the National Right to Life Committee and asserted he didn't believe exceptions for rape or incest [regarding abortion rights] were necessary because, wait for it, so few pregnancies were involved. "As I looked at those numbers, if I want to prevent abortions, I don't think those two exceptions are relevant."

    He has voted six times to block servicewomen from using their own money to pay for their own abortions using military medical facilities while stationed in countries that don't allow abortion. Most of times these pregnancies are a result of rape too, what with servicewomen being twice as likely to be raped by a fellow American than even civilian women are.
