Joe’s a veteran in the debate game; so this is like Ali going up against Foreman. Expect Biden to rope a dope Ryan for a few rounds before the knockout punch.
So what’s the knockout punch? The issue that Republicans can’t seem to get out of their heads: abortion.
Heading into tonight’s debate, Ryan’s stance on abortion hasn’t changed – no matter what he says. The fact of the matter is, “draconian” would be a nice way to describe his plan for women when it comes to abortion rights in America.
Ryan thinks babies should be made the old-fashioned way only – no in vitro fertilization. This is weird considering that three of Romney’s children used the medical procedure to bring their own children into the world.
During in vitro, multiple embryos are used, but only one is fertilized in the woman and the rest are frozen or trashed.
That’s that sh*t Ryan don’t like. Hardcore anti-abortionists like Ryan consider it murder in the first-degree.
Ryan supported The Sanctity of Human Life Act, a bill that states that fetuses have the same right to personhood as a human. It stated: “fertilized eggs have all the legal and constitutional attributes and privileges of personhood.”
If Romney and Ryan are elected, we are in trouble.
Here’s a guy that Ryan supported for State Rep in Wisconsin. State Rep. Roger Rivard (R) told a reporter that he believes “some girls rape so easy.”
In his insane comments, Rivard said he was retelling a story his father told about the dangers men face in having premarital sex, but instead talked about how easy it is to accidentally rape women.
Here’s what Rivard told the Milwaukee-Wisconsin Journal Sentinel:
He also told me one thing, ‘If you do (have premarital sex), just remember, consensual sex can turn into rape in an awful hurry.’ Because all of a sudden a young lady gets pregnant and the parents are madder than a wet hen and she’s not going to say, ‘Oh, yeah, I was part of the program.’
All that she has to say or the parents have to say is it was rape because she’s underage. And he just said, ‘Remember, Roger, if you go down that road, some girls,’ he said, ‘they rape so easy.’
What the whole genesis of it was, it was advice to me, telling me, ‘If you’re going to go down that road, you may have consensual sex that night and then the next morning it may be rape.’
So the way he said it was, ‘Just remember, Roger, some girls, they rape so easy. It may be rape the next morning.”
WTF! These are the type of people Ryan supports.
It seems as though Ryan isn’t in favor of women’s health in any case. Ryan opposes federal funding of Planned Parenthood, even though they help women conduct cancer screenings and support STD disease prevention.
Ryan also supported a bill that allows hospitals to deny emergency abortions to women who are in danger of dying in labor.
Science and Paul Ryan are like oil and water; they don’t mix. When it comes to stem cell research, guess how Ryan votes? No way!
Ryan voted against stem-cell research and thinks that embryos that will be otherwise destroyed should not be used to save millions of lives.
