Lesser of Two Evils?

Religious Order: Politics

Here's the thing I don't get about Todd Akin and Paul Ryan. Which is worse:

  1. Someone who thinks raped women have some mechanism which prevents pregnancy and thus doesn't think that abortions should be allowed, even in the case of rape, or
  2. Someone who realizes that, of course, raped women don't have any such mechanism and still doesn't think that abortions should be allowed, even in cases of rape?

Obviously person #1 is a truly stupid sack-o-shit. But isn't person #2 more evil than person #1?


Leaving aside the fact that pegging personhood at the moment of conception makes no sense, biologically speaking. Nor is it really Biblically-based, either. (Not that being Biblically-based should matter at all.)
