Also, I must say that I place the most blame on foolish Conservatives who continually split the pro-life vote. The overwhelming majority of primary voters had voted for candidates who were 100% pro-life. The Republican party is dominated by those who are fully pro-life, but the majority doesn't know how to get their act together, I simply don't trust that in 4 years from now, we won't do the very same thing again by splitting the pro-life vote, It was unconscionable that Newt stayed in as long as he did when it was clear that the conservative front-runner was Santorum, and for people who continued to support him. I think that if Jesus Christ himself ran, then Conservatives would tear him apart for calling names and having a temper.
Steve, as someone conceived in rape who was targeted for abortion, but legally protected at the time, I really appreciate your stand and speaking out on this. One word of advice -- you repeatedly used the word "it" when referring to preborn children, which is an error commonly made by pro-life activists, You'd never refer to a born baby as an "it." When I represented the mother in Michigan's "frozen embryo" case, the fertility doctors testified at deposition that, from conception -- one cell -- they are literally male or female and ascertainably so! Thus, we are not talking about "it," but "he or she." The words we choose make a difference. Remember Genesis 1:27, "male and female, He created them," and Genesis 5:2.

I address this question head-on in my latest blog post, "Women Who Cried Wolf -- the illegitimate rape claim behind Roe v Wade.". It does need to be discussed. It's a valid issue.

Mike, I appreciate you, but your repeated use of the term product of rape" is just as offensive to someone who was conceived in rape as the term "legimate rape" would be to a rape victim. It makes me ill to read this absolutely dehumanizing term for an unborn child. Noone else ever stsgets called a "product", which is a thing. It's the same dehumanizing language used by abortion rights activists -- "product of conception". I urge you to stop.
