Today, at the opening of her Columbia campaign office, Rep. Vicky Hartzler sided with embattled Rep. Todd Akin, agreeing that there should be no exceptions to abortion, even for rape or incest.
Hartzler, along with Akin, is co-sponsor of a proposed constitutional amendment that would extend civil rights protections to the unborn from the point of fertilization. She was also a co-sponsor, along with Akin, of the bill that began as a ban on taxpayer-supported abortions with an exception only if a woman was "forcibly raped."
This sounds an awful lot like Republican VP nominee Paul Ryan who said, just last week, that rape is just another "method of conception."
Talk about extremism.
