North Dakota Senate Candidate Rick Berg Will Send You To Prison For Your Rapebortion

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

rick berg, proudly banning rapebortionsWell well well! Now that we have a sheriff candidate who wants to kill abortionists, a governor who has decided that women are pregnant two weeks before they conceive, a GOP senate candidate who thinks that women can shut down pregnancy stemming from a “legitimate” rape, and another governor who wants to subject women seeking abortions to unnecessary vaginal probes, what exactly are we missing, here? How can we quadruple make sure that no woman ever, under any circumstances, no matter what, feels anything other than shame for accessing a constitutionally protected right to abortion or, alternatively, make it impossible for her to get an abortion in the first place? By supporting life sentences for women that kill “preborn children” with no exceptions for rape or incest or to save the life of the woman, OF COURSE, DUH.

Rep. Rick Berg (R-ND), the candidate for Senate from North Dakota, once voted for a bill that would have made any woman who obtained an abortion guilty of a homicide crime — even if it were in the case of rape or incest. Indeed, the bill Berg supported does not even contain an explicit exception if an abortion is necessary to save the woman’s life.

In 2007, Berg was among the small number of state representatives in the North Dakota House who supported the measure. It also would have imposed penalties on doctors and anyone else who “aids, abets, facilitates, solicits, or incites” a person into an abortion.

And in case you’re wondering, Berg (who, by the way, is currently a Congressman on the House Ways and Means Committee) is shocked — SHOCKED — to discover that SOME Republicans (we won’t say who) are under the impression that women can’t get pregnant from certain kinds of rape.

Berg was quick to denounce the comments of a fellow Senate Candidate, Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO), when he claimed that a woman couldn’t get pregnant from “legitimate rape.” Berg called the statement “insulting and reprehensible,” and “condemn[ed] them in the strongest terms possible.”

Of course, like Akin, Berg is highly qualified to legislate women’s health care decisions, given that he serves on the Congressional Prayer Caucus. And we look forward to the non-apology apology that is certain to include his deep love for rape victims and something about “misspeaking,” or “saying the wrong words in the wrong way,” or “using the words that were there.”

    Is it too late to give North Dakota back to whoever we stole it from?

    • Warwhatgoodfor

      That would be the Lakota Sioux, and they would dearly love to take it back, as long as it includes,the Black Hills, and we agree to kick out all the palefaces illegally squatting there.

      • BerkeleyBear

        Black Hills are in South Dakota, though, so it wouldn't help. We tried giving them other land several times, but for whatever reason those pesky bastards insist that their spiritual heartland is worth more to them than a few pieces of gold or silver. Clearly they don't get the civilizing grace of capitalism.

      Aren't they still under sanctions?

    Well…no words…keep up the good work GOP! We'll have this country back in no time!

    • WhatTheHolyHeck

      You make a statement using the words you have, not the words you wished you had.

      • PinkoPopulist

        Thank you zen master.

  • Blueb4sinrise

    Yes . Intense debate is fucking with us too.

    • MissTaken

      Okay, I thought it was just me having my comments rapeborted.

      • Geminisunmars

        Mine just showed up late. That happens sometimes with us wimmenz.

      • anniegetyerfun

        Are your comments forcible/legitimate? Because if so, IntenseDebate has a way of shutting that whole thing down.

      • Warwhatgoodfor

        Just don't try sneaking a potentially dirty/unPC word into the middle of another totally innocent word. Tried that once, didn't even know I'd done it, and an hour worth of really, really thoughtful stuff got sh* t canned. Wish I could help with the rapeborted thing, but my mama taught me better manners.

      • Willardbot9000_V2.5

        I can't even figure out what is and isn't a reason to be sent to the joint for re-education. I know the big words are like 'tardo and it's infinitives (I'll be surprised if this comment isn't deleted) and anything involving "Momma's lil' doorstop" up North…but nowadays they delete shit I write for completely inconsistent and unclear reasons even after I've complied with the previous censorship (which as a Civil libertarian I find abhorrent…)…so fuck if I know what is and is not a legitimate verbal rapebortion deserving of death these days…

    • http://wonkette.com/ starfanglednut

      But it's legitimate, so you won't get preggers.

  • sullivanst

    It's easy for Republicans to dismiss the question of whether it's possible to get pregnant from rape when they are willing to prosecute rape victims for terminating their rapist's fetus. It is, after all, "just another method of conception"

  • nounverb911

    By his logic, Berg should get the chair if he uses a condom?

    • sullivanst

      No, he's a man, duh!

    • Callyson

      Oh great, now you've done it: my mind is imagining all sorts of scenarios with Berg, and empty chair, and a condom…

      • sullivanst

        Is it bad that the first thing that combination conjured in my mind was a murder scene?

        • http://simplyleftbehind.blogspot.com/ actor212

          His comments made me feel stabby, too.

          • sullivanst

            I was going for asphyxiation. Hard to get good penetration with a condom, if you'll excuse the pun.

      Yeah, Kennedy prefers abortion rights to be eroded piecemeal, not assaulted full-frontal.

      • NorthStarSpanx

        His extreme umbrage at a less insulting misconception about conception over his criminalizing essentially ALL female sex is really mind boggling.

      No need for abortions! Just try the little buggers as adults, and give them the death penalty.

  • SmutBoffin

    It also would have imposed penalties on doctors and anyone else who “aids, abets, facilitates, solicits, or incites” a person into an abortion.

    "Inciting" abortion? Is that like running into a crowded movie theater and yelling "Hey everybody! It's two-for-one day down at the Abortionarium. Let's go!"

    • Callyson

      If I were pregnant, this fucker Berg would incite me to have an abortion.

    • IonaTrailer

      “aids, abets, facilitates, solicits, or incites”
      Does this include the toll-takers on any for-pay highways? How about bus drivers? How about the power company for keeping the lights on in the clinic? Aren't they abetting and facilitating? Fucking morans.

        They are parasites sucking the life out of you and storing it in batteries, which they use when they are 2 and never stop. By the time they are teens the batteries have run down and they are slumped on the couch watching a show about Canada's most dangerous road. I am in no way describing the actions of my eldest son at this moment. ps. When he was inside of me, my pet name for him was "the parasite". It still fits.

    • prommie

      Hey thats the Catholic rule, when its one or the other, save the child. True fact, things were going south on the day of Prommie's birth, and the doctors actually asked my Dad, "which one should we save?" On account of us being papist and all. he disregarded the church's teachings and chose his wife, but I lived anyway.

      • anniegetyerfun

        Jesus fucking Christ.

        • prommie

          I was an emergency c-section 2 months premature, which back in the days before electricity was apparently something.

          • anniegetyerfun

            Was your mom totally out of it, or was it just custom not to ask her if she personally wanted to survive?

          • Warwhatgoodfor

            Back when I was a lonely pediapod in the USAF out in the ass end of nowhere,about a million years ago, I attended the delivery of a 32 week premie. Neonatal ICUs were beginning to show up everywhere, but the nearest one to me was 400 miles away. When I asked for a transfer, I was politely turned down. Not an active duty person(duh), not part of the mission, going to die anyway, etc. did it myself. Baby lived. Your dad was way better at this than the good ol' AF. Send him congrats.

  • kittensdontlie

    As a proud Bob Jones graduate, I am pretty sure North Dakota is part of Canada or Antarctica, and thus thank god, he is not our problem!

    • sullivanst

      Surely a BJ-U grad would think Berg is a God Warrior and not part of anyone's problem.

      • kittensdontlie

        Sorry! My use of the 'problem' was not intended to be a factual statement(also my BJ grad statement….).

    • viennawoods13

      No, really, we don't want it.

  • http://wonkette.com Lionel[redacted]Esq

    Clearly this proves that Todd Akin was outside the mainstream of the Republican party except for the 99% that agree with is position.

    But there is no War on Women. After all, Romney's wife told us he loves women, or at least telling them what to do with their bodies.

  • edgydrifter

    It's easy to discount rape as a valid condition to terminate a pregnancy if you're a nominally Christian Dominionist who believes a woman's primary duty is to nurture a man's–any man's–seed and shut the hell up about it. Actually, this kind of explains the opposition to exceptions for the health of the mother, too. If pricks like this wore beards and wrote right-to-left, we'd accuse them of hating our freedom. Weird.

    My vagina is not large enough for all these people who want to see what's going on up there.

    • BloviateMe

      Maybe you need one of those "take a number" deals outside your vagina to keep the line flowing in an orderly manner.

      we're gonna need a bigger vagina.

    Berg was quick to denounce the comments of a fellow Senate Candidate, Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO), when he claimed that a woman couldn’t get pregnant from “legitimate rape.”

    Well of course — there'd be no fun in executing women for having abortions if they only got pregnant when they wanted to.

    So a pre-fetus is like a corporation?

  • Baconzgood

    To tell the truth I always have the same argument to people about abortion. I personally don't agree with it (being raised Catholic) but I son't think we should make any political decisions on it until ALL 3 branches of our government is filled with at least 7 women for every 5 men. It's a woman's rights issue and as a man I have, at best, a 49.9% say so in it. And that's only talking about a very personal decision between you and your lover.

      Thank you Baconz!

    • proudgrampa

      I agree with you totally, Baconz! You are a gentleman and a scholar.

      Here, have a martini on proudgrampa!

    • TavariousChinaSmith

      And speaking of personal decisions between lovers, once upon a time I had a girlfriend who was completely against abortion. Until she missed her period. Then she wasted no time trying to make an appointment with the local specialist. And I wasn't consulted until she was good and sure that it had been a false alarm, not that I blamed her.

      And that is why men cannot dictate to women if and when they can terminate a pregnancy. Because unless you're personally in that situation, you have no fucking clue how you should or would act.

  • MonkeyMotion

    Shouldn't the penalty for homicide be death? I mean, really: life imprisonment?

    What kinda wussy Christian is this Berg dude?

  • prommie

    So whats the penalty for spilling your seed, in the traditional Onan-like fashion? Because the way I see it, those sperms are alive, each and every one of them is a tiny little human life. Today, we men, we are all mass murderers. And you ladies, mass-cannibals. The good ones of you, anyway.

      More like, burning them at the stake since 1431.

  • randcoolcatdaddy

    It's fascinating to see the words "rape" and "Republican" being so tightly intertwined in the news lately.

  • An Asexual Ungulate

    As a former North Dakotan, I would like to wholeheartedly apologize for Rick Berg.

    As a current absentee North Dakota voter I would also like to promise that I'll do my best to send him back to being a scummy slumlord, rather than an elected representative who refuses to represent his constituents' actual desires, soon.

    I suppose that since they are privatizing the prisons anyway, they are motivated to fill them up, and if they cannot fill them up with teh illegals, they might as well fill them with health care professionals trying to tend to women's health care, the F*ers.

    These assholes don't know when to shut up. Don't they know that sluts vote?

    Must also apologize for "pushing the wrong lever-arm on the dagburned voting contraption".

  • Pithaughn

    If your wife / daughter / mother was in a late term pregnancy and was t boned by a drunk driver coming home from a bar after fracking for 30 days straight ( like they do in ND ), would you want the ER doc to be wondering " hmm, i better be careful saving this woman's life, our local DA is right wing zealot and may come after me for murder 1 "
    No of course not. So quit legislating all the abortion prevention nonsense. The ladies and the doctors CAN figure it out on their own.

  • Gleem McShineys

    Oh look, a smart Republican!

    Not smart in the traditional sense, but more because he's one of the few that finally figured out that these magical devices that can actually record the history of what you say and do are REAL, so naturally, he's trying to etch-a-sketch his way out of the terrible Akin trap.

    Apparently all of his constituents don't believe in these devices at all, so they have no idea of his prior record.

  • vaginista

    Dude wants to lock people ('specially the lady ones) up for 'inciting abortion'. I imagine it's like if you run into a crowded theater and yell "Pregnant! You're all pregnant!!!" and then everyone panics and runs off to get an abortion. 'Cause that would be bad, I guess.

  • Negropolis

    I'm so glad that it's likely that North Dakota will send this clown packing.

  • ShuCityRefugee

    I read the text of Mr. Berg's bill, and it would include "Plan B," and other contraceptive methods (including, quite possibly, tubal ligation), because it defines life as beginning with fertilization. This could also have a chilling effect on IVF procedures, if a routine error could result in homicide charges.
