"A Republican Missouri state lawmaker on Friday stunned many of his colleagues when he made a reference to "consensual rape" on the floor of the state’s House of Representatives.

During a debate over an anti-abortion law that was passed by the Missouri House of Representatives on Friday, GOP Rep. Barry Hovis, a former law enforcement official, argued that opponents of the bill were overestimating how often women in the United States were really raped.

"Let’s just say that someone goes out and, uh, they have, they’re raped or they’re sexually assaulted one night after a college party," he began. "Because most of my rapes [encountered as a law enforcement official] were not the gentleman jumping out the bushes that nobody’d ever met. That was one of two times out of 100. Most of them were date rapes or consensual rapes, which were all terrible!"*
