'Some Girls Rape Easy' And Other Republican Quotes On Rape

On the 7th anniversary of Todd Akin’s rape comments, I’ve decided to collect and share quotes from Republicans about rape.  

Here they are in no particular order: 


“From what I understand from doctors... If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways of shutting that whole thing down.” 

- Todd Akin  (R-MO)

“If a woman has [the right to an abortion], why shouldn’t a man be free to use his superior strength to force himself on a woman? At least the rapist’s pursuit of sexual freedom doesn’t [usually] result in anyone’s death.” 

 Lawrence Lockman (R-ME)


“In the emergency room they have what’s called rape kits, where a woman can get cleaned out.” 

Jodie Laubenberg (R-TX) on why rape victims don’t need abortion bill exemptions.


"Rape victims should make the best of a bad situation."  

- Rick Santorum (R-PA)

"Some girls rape easy."

- Rep. Roger Rivard (R-Wi)


"Rape is kinda like the weather. If it's inevitable. Relax and enjoy it."  

Clayton Williams (R-TX) 


“Obviously rape is awful. What is beautiful is the child that could come from this.” 

 Brian Kurcaba (R-WVA)


“Life is that gift from God that I think even if life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen.” 

- Richard Mourdock (R-IN)


“The incidence of pregnancy resulting from rape are very low.” 

Trent Franks (R-AZ)


"What if we went back through all the family trees and just pulled those people out that were products of rape and incest? Would there be any population of the world left if we did that? Considering all the wars and all the rape and pillage that has taken place? And whatever happened to culture after society, I know that I can't certify that that I am not a part of the product of that.” 

Republican Steve King of Iowa said in defense of an anti-abortion bill that would not allow for exceptions for pregnancies that were the result of rape or incest.

Vote blue.
