The Republican War On Women - Suffer The Little Children (To Give Birth) Edition

American Talibangelist and Republican- who- will- never- be President Mike "Huckster" Huckabee was asked this weekend about the recent case of a 10- year- old girl in Paraguay being forced to deliver a child that was the result of a rape.  Remember, this is the lard bucket who would use Federal troops to stop legal abortions.  Here's what came out of his grits 'n' gravy hole:
Gov. Mike Huckabee on Sunday put his support behind the decision to deny an abortion to a 10-year-old girl in Paraguay who was raped by her step-father, saying the while what happened was a “terrible tragedy,” it is best not to “compound the tragedy by taking another life.”
The GOP presidential candidate, who has been firmly against abortion no matter the circumstance – including rape, incest or a woman’s life endangerment – touted his consistency in his defense and used a sort of “two wrongs don’t make a right” argument.
Huckster, of course, isn't the only Republican in the race who would make no exceptions for abortion, even in the case of rape or incest.  Gov. Scott "Koch Head" Walker (R-Kochland) and Sen. Marco "Glug Glug" Rubio (Teabagger-FL) also take that extreme, out- of- the- mainstream position.

Isn't it helpful to know that Republicans would expand their war on women to include 10- year- old girls if given the opportunity?
