Sharron Angle may be giving the press the silent treatment now, but she hasn’t always been so tight-lipped. Think Progress (via Alternet) has dug up some eyebrow-raising audio of a radio interview the Nevada Senate candidate did with Bill Manders back in January. The subject: abortion. Her stance: disgusting.
Manders asks her whether there is “any reason at all for an abortion,” and she answers: “Not in my book.” For clarity, he says: “So, in other words, rape and incest would not be something?” And Angle replies with this reasoning: “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.” You see, God planned your rape and pregnancy. Isn’t that reassuring?
