Republican Tea Party (GOTP) presidential wannabe Reverend Rick Perry’s shifting his opposition to abortion, saying he opposes it even after rape or incest.
Previously, the Reverend believed abortion was acceptable in cases of rape, incest or when the mother’s life is at risk. Now that he’s fallen dismally behind in the polls, he says abortion in all forms should be prohibited.
Perry told a pastor who asked him about his views that, in his words, “you’re seeing a transformation.”
And it’s a transformation out of the necessity to sellout to the far-right evangelicals in hopes of picking up primary votes.
Perry says he recently watched former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee’s documentary about abortion. He says he met a woman in the film and that she told him she was the result of rape and that her life has worth.
Perry says that encounter led him to rethink his position.
Very interesting, so every woman who is ever raped should never have the option of terminating the pregnancy? This is the America of today’s GOTP; it’s an America where evangelical Christian Shariah law prevails; if you’re a woman and you vote Republican in 2012, and you get raped and can’t have an abortion, blame yourself.
