Far Right Angle

July 9th, 2010

Inspired by Raped By Dad? Just Turn Lemons Into Lemonade (Change.org 7/08/10), Sharron Angle thinks teenage victims of incest should turn lemons into lemonade by carrying their babies to term (Yahoo Shine 7/09/10), Sharron Angle Opposes Abortion Even With Rape, Incest: ‘God Has A Plan’ (Huffington Post 6/29/10).

Angle: I’m pro responsible choice. There is choice to abstain choice to do contraception. There are all kind of good choices.
Manders: Is there any reason at all for an abortion?
Angle: Not in my book.
Manders: So, in other words, rape and incest would not be something?
Angle: You know, I’m a Christian and I believe that God has a plan and a purpose for each one of our lives and that he can intercede in all kinds of situations and we need to have a little faith in many things.  — Sharron Angle on the Bill Manders show in Jan. 2010

Stock: What do you say then to a young girl, I am going to place it as he said it, when a young girl is raped by her father, let’s say, and she is pregnant. How do you explain this to her in terms of wanting her to go through the process of having the baby?
Angle: I think that two wrongs don’t make a right. And I have been in the situation of counseling young girls, not 13 but 15, who have had very at risk, difficult pregnancies. And my counsel was to look for some alternatives, which they did. And they found that they had made what was really a lemon situation into lemonade. – Sharron Angle on the (conservative) Alan Stock Show

Sharron Angle is for “responsible choice,” or in other words, no choice at all.

Exceptions for rape or incest? She’s against them all.

Can you be forced to have your rapist’s baby?

If Sharron Angle gets elected, maybe.

She wants no exceptions for her abortion ban.

After all, it’s just “God’s plan.”

Raped by your dad?

That’s too bad.

No abortion for you, I’m afraid–

Just turn lemons into lemonade.


Here’s Countdown’s 6/29/10 “Worst Persons” report about Sharon Angle’s statement that if you’re a victim of rape or incest, that’s all part of God’s plan.

    , she handles heserlf and her position quite well in this snipit. I agree with her when she says that the government should never have gotten involved in the abortion issue. Abortion is between a woman, her doctor, and her faith, not the government. Her position here is true to her small-government value system.However, she does mention that the government is now involved with this issue but manages to avoid actually saying how she would vote on abortion legislation. Would she support a bill that supports the use of stem-cells? How would she handle the Kerry-trap: Voting against a law that would have made partial birth abortion illegal ( which is generally desired by the public) because the law also defined a fetus as a living being, which would subsequently support future legislation banning abortion? Would she simply recuse heserlf from any legislation that might connect to abortion because she doesn’t think the government should be involved in the issue?I like her philosophical position, but how will her beliefs actually affect how she legislates? I just don’t trust her to stick by her philosophy, doing so would not be popular with the Christian-right.-Rob
