Sharron Angle: Rape, Incest Part of God's Plan -- Opposes Abortion No Matter What

Share

Nevada GOP Senate nominee Sharron Angle's election strategy for the moment is to   flee reporters so she doesn't get tricked into saying things publicly.

Fortunately, Angle has already said enough crazy shit to belie spin efforts intended to paint her as slightly less extremist for the general election.

In a January interview with conservative talk show host David Manders, Angle explains her views on abortion. As with most responsible policy positions, the inspiration for Angle's stance comes from God (clearly, the Old Testament God that's really into incest and rape) (via Think Progress):

MANDERS: I too am pro-life, but I'm also pro-choice. Do you understand what I say when I mean that?

ANGLE: Well, I'm pro responsible choice. There's choice to abstain, choice to use contraceptives ... there's all kinds of good choice...

MANDERS: Is there any reason at all for an abortion?

ANGLE: Not in my book.

MANDERS:  So, in other words, rape and incest would not be something?

ANGLE: You know, I’m a Christian, and I believe that God has a plan and a purpose for each one of our lives and that he can intercede in all kinds of situations and we need to have a little faith in many things.
