DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Rep. Steve King said Friday he stands by his recent comments about rape and incest that sparked bipartisan criticism but acknowledged he could have made his point in a "softer way."

Backed by supporters at a news conference in Des Moines, the Iowa Republican affirmed his belief that abortion should be outlawed with no exceptions for rape or incest. King faced criticism for his comment Aug. 14 that questioned whether there would be "any population of the world left" if not for births due to rape or incest.

Cheney is an asshole. Ignore her.

If King is honestly displeased with his remarks, admit to the diarrhea, and move on. And then tell Cheney to go FH.

I’m PO’d at Lizzy and King not you. He said what he said, maybe a little lamely. Ok he said it, Lizzy the lesbian can GF herself if she don’t like it that’s my less than humble opinion.

King was factually correct and no one has successfully proven he was incorrect. Interesting things have happened as a result of King’s remarks. Those who should be considered allies of King’s position couldn’t resist playing politics and became very critical of him, which puts the critics agreeing with Democrats. Oops.

I’ve read where rape, incest, and Mother’s life in danger make up less than 2% of all abortions.
