I hesitated to even bring up Mike Huckabee because he is really just an extra in the Republican Primary circus, who has no chance to become our next President(no matter how many times he runs).
However this was to egregious to ignore. In order to gain traction in the Republican Primary, you have to say that you believe things that are so far to the extreme that most people can not even comprehend but unfortunately in today's version of right wing politics, extremism is the number one job qualification.
Here Mr. Huckabee explains why it is important for an 11 year old rape victim(by her stepfather) to carry a baby to term.
He agreed that it wouldn’t be “easy” to force a 10-year-old girl to carry her rapist’s baby, “but let’s not compound the tragedy by taking yet another life.”
“When an abortion happens, there are two victims,” he insisted. “One is the child, the other is that birth mother, who often will go through extraordinary guilt years later when she begins to think through what happened, with the baby, with her.”
Want to know something even scarier?
Scott Walker is to the right of Huckabee on abortion.
I need a shower.
