Rachel Maddow shares a clip from an Al Jazeera documentary featuring an Ohio State Legislator who is advocating extreme anti-abortion legislation.
If a man happens to meet a virgin who is not pledged to be married and rapes her and they are discovered, he shall pay her father fifty shekels of silver. He must marry the young woman, for he has violated her. He can never divorce her as long as he lives. // “For he has *violated* her” / And he must pay for his wrongdoings. What part of that comes across as “perfectly fine”? / I was rude in my message, sorry. I just don’t like the idea of posting that where most people won’t read the real words
What’s your point to this idiotic bullshit? If paying fifty shekels is how one absolves themselves for violating a woman, and that woman MUST marry that horrible man how is that not perfectly fine.
Sir, you have your head firmly up your ass.
Does this delusional moron generally think that passage shows how the Bible condemns rape? What the fuck are kids learning in close reading lessons these days? IT’S SAYING THAT MARRYING A WOMAN IS PUNISHMENT. NOT ONLY THAT, BUT MARRYING A VICTIM IS PUNISHMENT FOR A RAPIST. WHAT THE EVERLOVING FUCK ARE YOU EVEN SAYING? PLEASE, TRANSLATE, I DON’T SPEAK ASSHAT.
Fuck you, Deuteronomy. You’re a horrible little book and everyone hates you.
The number of pregnancies that result from rape every year in the United States
Relevant to both Todd Akin and every pro-lifer who says pregnancies from rape “aren’t that common” or “don’t happen enough to matter.”
Hey, Tumblr, can we get this post liked and/or reblogged at least 32,101 times?
Andrew Sullivan points to this chart from Razib Khan breaking down public opinion on the right to abortion in cases of rape. As he notes, “no demographic group, not even biblical literalists or the extremely conservative, breaks fifty percent in denying abortion to rape victims.”
This is still a fucking terrifying amount of people who want to deny women a basic human right. And we say feminism isn’t relevant to young girls anymore when more women would deny a woman an abortion than men? Fuck that.
