Colorado Senate Candidate Ken Buck Insists Rape, Incest Are No Excuse For An Abortion


Tea Party-backed contender Ken Buck, who’s facing-off against Jane Norton in Colorado’s GOP Senate primary says he firmly opposes abortion rights and doesn’t “believe in the exceptions of rape or incest.”

Greg Sargent at the Washington Post relays how Buck explained his staunch pro-life stance to a constituent of the Centennial State on Monday:

“I am pro-life, and I’ll answer the next question. I don’t believe in the exceptions of rape or incest. I believe that the only exception, I guess, is life of the mother. And that is only if it’s truly life of the mother.To me, you can’t say you’re pro-life and say — if there is, and it’s a very rare situation where one life would have to cease for the other life to exist. But in that very rare situation, we may have to take the life of the child to save the life of the mother.

In that rare situation, I am in favor of that exception. But other than that I have no exceptions in my position.”

Nevada GOP Senate candidate Sharron Angle recently made headlines for articulating a similar hard-line view on the abortion issue. HuffPost’s Sam Stein reports:

In a radio interview Angle did in late June, the Tea Party favorite re-affirmed her pro-life sensibilities (rigid, as they are, even within Republican circles), when she insisted that a young girl raped by her father should know that “two wrongs don’t make a right.” Much good can come from a horrific situation like that, Angle added. Lemons can be made into lemonade.

A survey released this week by Rasmussen Reports shows Buck is the current frontrunner in Colorado’s Republican Senate primary with the state’s August 10 election less than a week away. Buck’s ability to lock-up voter support has appeared uninhibited by any of a number of gaffes he’s made along the way.  Source: HuffingtonPost.com

I’m so tired of men being all up in my uterus!!!  Seriously, this prick has the gall to say “not even in the case of rape or incest“?  Sounds to me he’s impregnated somebody in his own damn family!!! If the citizens of Colorado elected this dickhead, I guess that will be a state I’ll never visit. How in the world did we ever allow politics to enter our womb or did I miss the memo on that?  SMDH!!! “I believe that the only exception, I guess, is life of the mother. And that is only if it’s truly life of the mother.”  Huh?  I mean, he didn’t really say that either did he?  Ken Fuck Buck is a real piece of work!   I could not imagine being told I had no choice if I became pregnant due to rape or incest other than to have that child.  No one should ever have a say on that except the pregnant woman.

  2. These are the same people that believe in “abstinence only” sex education. There is no part of their brain cell that’s in the realm of reality. Matter of fact, as a man, I find those statements of theirs awfully offensive.

  3. “as a man, I find those statements of theirs awfully offensive.” THANK YOU! It is offensive! I’m glad to hear a man say that too! “These are the same people that believe in “abstinence only” sex education. “– you hit that spot on! And it wouldn’t surprise me if he gets caught using rentaboy.com.
