"Republicans so far have referred to legitimate rape, forcible rape, easy rape, honest rape, emergency rape, enjoyable rape and now gift-from-God rape. Check out this unbelievable Republican Party Rape Advisory Chart for all of the direct quotes from Republicans on this issue.

They're not saying all of this because they just keep slipping up with words. They're stating whole theories on rape. That's not misspeaking; that's accidentally telling us what you really think.

It's not like Todd Akin meant illegitimate and he accidentally said legitimate rape. He stated a whole biological hypothesis. Why? Because he's thought that for decades and assumed the rest of us believed it, too. That's why he said it on television -- because he didn't realize that it was objectionable.

Richard Mourdock thinks kids born of rape are God's gift; otherwise, how do you justify making a woman carry her rapist's child to term? He can sleep at night by telling himself God meant for that to happen, and hence, it's okay to force women to have those kids."* Cenk Uygur breaks down the ridiculous rape terms coined by GOP members and goes over the realities a woman could face if Roe v. Wade were to be overturned by a Romney-appointed Supreme Court justice.
