King defends abortion ban with no rape, incest exceptions

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — U.S. Rep. Steve King on Wednesday defended his call for a ban on all abortions by questioning whether 'there would be any population of the world left' if not for births...

GOP Rep. Steve King of Iowa argues for a ban on all abortions, saying, “What if we went back through all the family trees and just pulled out anyone who was a product of rape or incest? Would there be any population of the world left if we did that?”

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — U.S. Rep. Steve King on Wednesday defended his call for a ban on all abortions by questioning whether 'there would be any population of the world left' if not for births...

“What if we went back through all the family trees and just pulled out anyone who was a product of rape or incest? Would there be any population of the world left if we did that?” King asked,

He added: “It’s not the baby’s fault for the sin of the father, or of the mother.”

Shortly before the November 2018 election, The Washington Post reported that King met in Austria with the far-right Freedom Party, a group with Nazi ties. King said the meeting was with business leaders, including one person from the Freedom Party, but the newspaper stood by its story.

Although King has usually breezed to victories in the conservative 4th Congressional District, he

This year, several candidates have said they will challenge King for the Republican nomination, including conservative state Sen. Randy Feenstra. Scholten also recently announced he’d again run for the seat.

“Yet again, Steve King puts his selfish, hateful ideology above the needs of the people of Iowa’s 4th District. Excusing violence — in any way — is entirely unacceptable,” Scholten said in a statement.

“You would think it would be pretty easy to come out against rape and incest,” one of the presidential candidates, Pete Buttigieg, said in a statement. “Then again, you’d think it’d be pretty easy to come out against white nationalism.”

What the hell is he insinuating? That most people are a product of rape and incest!, what a ridiculous idea. Maybe in your family that’s true Mr. but most people in the world were born from married parents. Btw, I agree with you in banning abortion even in such cases Why is Iowa which elected this guy one of the early states that determine which determine who is on the ticket? I question the sanity or morality of the population of this state.

This incredibly stupid argument can be used to defend slavery. In the 9th century caliphs' families had thousands of slaves. Romans much before them renewed their slave stock by 400,000 a year. So slavery should be just natural today, right? We are surrounded by imbeciles... crazy people need help Sixteen million people are descendants of genghis khan. I'm sure he politely wined and dined each of those women. This is the point he's making (albeit, clumsily).

Thereby proving he is qualified to be Trump's nominee for a lifetime appointment as US Ambassador to South Sudan to oversee US AID distribution of Iowa food supplies. Speaking from your own experience of course, you are the reason Abortions should be allowed king he just needs to go ..gone ,out , hit the door , leave, he is such a douchebag does nothing for the state of iowa except embarrassment... shame

What is wrong with him Who says that So... This bill isn't banning abortions under all circumstances as much as it's declaring that rape and incest are necessary for the continuation of our species?

GOP Rep. Steve King credits humanity's existence to rape, incestWhile defending anti-abortion legislation, GOP Rep. Steve King (IA) questions whether human populations would exist if not for rapes and incest that happened in families throughout history. Who are his voters why would anyone vote for him? Seriously sick The King family tree must really be interesting! But it does explain a lot about old Steve it would seem!

WTH? 😑 Your mother must be your sister which would explain your remark. You need immigrants in Iowa to diversify your population so you can stop screwing your relatives Maniac! You are a sick person. One deserves exactly -what or who - one voted for. Yes, the world would still be abundantly populated. The idea that there are people who voted for this person, for this reason (or any reason), amazes me.

episcopalcafe Does he have children? you can’t possibly be serious? Why doesn’t this kind of talk initiate an immediate investigation? He is condoning rape and incest. I think this is quite a weak argument. In times of over population issues, plus many other good reasons for abortion, maybe better if this guy had been a bj.

It must be true because he asked his mother, auntie and sister (same person!) Scumbag sjgoody1 Crazy man. IT WOULD BE ALRIGHT IF THERE WEREN'T. IF WE HUMANS CANT BE HUMANE, LET'S NOT BE No wonder he's not thinking right due to his family tree Too bad that his mother didn't abort him.

I'm guessing he doesn't have a uterus. unbelievable What is wrong with him, one of the most disgusting people to ever walk the earth. Wonder how much the rape and incest in his family tree has affected his mental health? Or that of his ancestors? Warped genetics? W.T.A.F. Someone has not heard of Hyenas. Females have protection against rape.

Abort Steve King SteveKingIA family tree has no branches.

Steve King Offers Passionate Defense of Rape and Incest“What if we went back through all the family trees and just pulled out anyone who was a product of rape or incest? Would there be any population of the world left if we did that?” WTF?

I think I might use my one trip 'back' to sit down with Steve King's parents and say: 'Seriously...just don't fuck. Like ever.' He must live in a sad & pathetic reality if he seriously believes the majority of the world is a product of rape & incest. 😬 He needs to get out more ... & do some RESEARCH. 🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏻‍♂️

This man is a fucking monster. WHAT!! Has this guy ever talked to a rape victim? Nothing like victimizing the victims UNREAL For Republicans, its socialism or incest. They choose incest. There r still people who vote for this joker What a nut job How does he keep getting put on the ballot?

Consider this a failed drug test Seriously, we need mark religion as fiction. And embrace spiritualism (if there is a need) and science GOPLeader this man needs to go. Keep electing him Iowa.

Wait what?!! Well, if that's true then bow before women. Mankind is lucky we let you live. Rape and incest. Only way to preserve his 'base.' Resign. That’s one way to try to go viral... Is he suggesting that everyone is born of rape or incest? I'd look at his family tree first... What if SteveKingIA's dad just pulled out?!?!?

If you believe in Adam and Eve it’s not surprising that you think every got here from incest... Just another reason of thousands to stop getting inspiration from a 2000 year old book written by Bronze Age goat herders. So that’s how they do it in his family. Is he admitting to something? That boy needs his hole plugged.

Good point His Democrat challenger is JDScholten Wouldn't it have stopped with Adam? (If you believe that sort of thing) Does this country need a better reason to PURGE out the grand OLD party's Old men. Kansas White Supremacists argues Rape and Incest Good. Somebody has a screw loose! Is this guy for real!!!

how does it feel RepSteveKingIA to be the stupidest person in America today? Interesting resignation speech. Yeah he’s a product of incest.

Yes, there would be peopke left and probably fewer assholes like him. Just WOW! This might be the most ridiculous argument I have ever heard and lately, that’s really saying something. It is appalling. When you know better you do better. It’s very stupid, upsetting and unhealthy. Did you think before you talk about this topic?” The product of a rape or incest “what ? a product can be a hand bug not a baby. it’s a very bad mind !! You not thinking right MR. King. Please show us your family tree ?

Steve King's family tree... STEVE BEEN HAVING SEX WITH HIS DAUGHTERS 11 12 13 YEARS OLD HE SAY HE DON'T PULL OUT! RAPE & INCEST IS NORMAL WITH HIS VOTERS IN IOWA. TABOO? Fuching stupid.

Maybe in his family tree..... Idiot Wow - hopefully this was a quote pulled out of context otherwise the word LOSER comes to mind Were mom and dad brother and sister? Is that what happened to you? Does he have something to tell us? Does he have an uncledad? Rep King you have no right to judge and force any women whom have been rapped and abused to then force them to carry any pregnancy a result of that attack !

No doubt he sends Hallmark cards that read “Happy Birthday from Uncle Dad” And this yahoo will get re-elected. Iowa, what has Steve King done for Iowa? Is he just a vote against gays, abortion and the Libs? Hmmm, how about banning MEN What a small, grim world you live in.

🤔🤔👎🏻👎🏻🤔🤔👎🏻👎🏻🤔🤔👎🏻👎🏻 AND, I suppose that's a key message from the Bible he wants impart on the country? I wonder if he's heard about a FLOOD and how and why it took place? What about Sodom & Gomorrah? Has he heard of a Pharaoh in Egypt? Republicans value him? SAD... This dude needs to resign GOP wake up people

His family tree is poison oak King is a good reason for abortion No question about his inbreeding repkingnutjob Well, at least we know HE wouldn't be here. JUST LOOK AT ANDLISTEN TO THIS BRAIN DAMAGED POS, HE HAS NO PLACE IN CONGRESS, IN A CIVIL AMERICAN SOCIETY. HE SHOULD BE IN A PADDED CELL.

Well, he's kinds right. There would be no royal family in England. Send him to Saudi Arabia I guess he never found a woman to say yes. Ironically, Steve King is the poster child against close breeding. So his dad is also his brother? Is this motherfucker on drugs? 'Some people did something' CyrusToulabi And then he dragged his woman by her hair, back into the cave.

Omg wtf?! He crazy! 🤢 Pretty much on brand.

W. T. F.?! He is probably third or fourth generation incest. Cray‐cray weareiowa5news qctimes Who are the Iowans who keep voting for this lunatic? He’s not even a rational conservative What? Pretty sure that's not how abortion works I'm sure SteveKingIA was friends with Epstein. Such a weirdo. Is retroactive abortion a thing? Does anyone have a time-turner we can borrow? Ms. Granger, perhaps?

You would think that their would be consequences for this horrifying words. He’ll go about his day & get re-elected again & again.

If you believe the Adam and Eve creation truth, you must agree with the Rep. Wow! Iowa elected a real dandy! Sooo embarrassing to hear this man talk, must've related to Delirious Donald! Say it ain’t do !!!!🙁 I can’t believe what I’m hearing. This man is practically justifying rape and incest. His views might be different if he were wearing panties and a bra. (He might be doing that already.)

Pro abortion=babyphobes Not in the conservative south. I mean, I guess That statement is a true window into his soul - and that of anyone who defends him. What if frogs and tadpoles traced their lineage No... Adam and Eve. The end. Things an incest loving rapist says... joke notfunny politics usa

Do you have something you need to confess Stev-o? Mr. Oedipus. I bet Steve King has a child porn habit. Speechless. Utterly speechless Yes. Apparently no one from his family given his statement. Makes me wonder about his wife and children though. Wow this man is absolutely terrible. Can Iowa please get its act together and get rid of him?

If you believe in God, then you know that you are a product of incest. Everything comes from just 2 people: Adam and Eve. Aye idiota

Please say this man’s quote was somehow taken out of context... We live in incredibly irrational political times. abortion 🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️ MissZindzi Maaan oh mannn Stupid comment. Not a valid argument, Steve. Gop, you own this. Is he implying that, he hit his sister? I think detectives need to have conversations with all the female relatives in this creeps life.

It's so easy for a man to decide what to do in case of abortion. This will be the year 2020 and your trying to take away a woman's right. Woman will not go BACKWARDS! Much more effective than a ban why are old white guys making decisions for scared young women? Oh good god. Seriously? 🤦‍♀️ So women from the past welcomed these pregnancies, never mind women who once became pregnant out of wedlock used to be shamed, and ostracized. That they were called names and their babies were “bastards”.

Apparently not in his family. Wtf! When you count abortions you have to be careful as a miscarriage is also classified as an abortion How does one actually function at that level of ignorance. Shoot the idiot😡

Too F’ing bad Steve Kings mother didn’t do what he’s against. And to be clear, I’ve told my mother more than once she had no business having children. Some people should be Mandated to have abortions. That is some fucked up thinking there Steve-o! MAGA MOLESTING ADOLESCENT GIRLS ALLOWED MAGA MOLESTING ADOLESCENT GUYS ACCEPTED

Wow A purely evil and highly despicable excuse for a human. The man needs to take a class in logic. Maybe he’s aware of lots of rape and incest in his family tree 😳. Either that or he knows a bunch of not-legit shit and has not disclosed it. 😳😳 What's his family tree look like, a stump?!? (Credit to Bill Hicks)

He’s a ducking fouche Omg During the deepening recession, many of you poor pale folks who continue to support your white supremacist avatar and his equally inhumane predecessors, may hae nothing more to eat than Jim Crowe. Iowa lol. How are his farmers enjoy living on farm welfare? When will we start drug testing farmers before getting welfare...lmao

Well,,,at least you wouldn’t find those children of rape in the Muslim world since it’s strictly forbidden in Islam and punishable better both in this life and hereafter,,, What (and I can’t stress this enough) the fuck?! His family reunions must be lit af So this is what his family is like?

🤔.... His family, probably not! The serviceability of racism People really voted for this idiot......lol steve king has got to GO support JDScholten Iowa He needs to be catapulted back to the Middle Ages! Is the US going to give citizenship to those babies that were conceived in the US when their parents were vacationing in the US?

CyrusToulabi Which tells you ALL you need to know about SteveKingIA 's family history... IA04 For God's sake what are you people thinking FireSteveKing Someone doesn’t have a clue...? Did he just say, his father raped his mother to produce him?

Is this creep taking moonshine & cocaine cocktails intravenously? Cause I honestly cannot figure out how else he’d think uttering this BS was a good idea. CyrusToulabi Wow, the trumpublican family values are really something, eh? 😡 CyrusToulabi Also AP when you give only his excellency of cuckooville a platform to spout his BS with No significant voice of reason to counter- you are giving him a platform to spout from- lending him credibility. Where is the Woman denouncing his Bull? Ever?

THIS IS NOT NORMAL He’s just another one of those knuckleheads CyrusToulabi Steve King is an abortion My GOD sis this man really that imbecile how can someone so so abnormal can have work in public service RepSteveKingIA Hello; it's my body and my family; none of your facking business what I do. PERIOD

I’m so sick of other people, especially White Men, having any say over what they think is morally acceptable for me to do with my body. Last I checked white men in this country had centuries of control over our bodies. We aren’t going back!

So apparently he is in favor of rape and incest. What is wrong with this man!!! Iowa is a 4 letter word! Sounds like he was the product of rape. Poor guy. No wonder Evangelical Republican kids are so screwed up. Add guns to that and you have the perfect disaster recipe. Appears Rep King May have a few skeletons in his closet...

Does that mean let the raping and incest begin? Wtf do you expect from anyone revolving around this administration If you think what king said was bad, thats nothing. Think about the Iowa district constituents that have voted king in election after election. That rep king represents their values. Now that's some scary s^%t. Lmao that king wasn't their outlier, he was their standard smh

Many people are sorry his mother didn't abort him.

WTF? Where the fuck do we get these people from? Ummm...no. Are democrats or independents so bad that his man as elected? The amount of crap that Republicans get away with is astounding. The republican party should be known as the party of more taxes, criminals, rape and incest. 🙄 Getting pregnant through rape is a gift from God.

Wtf did he just say.... Another Replubican bites the dust! He needs to go find a nice place to retire too by himself where he can fall in a hole.

Congrats to Steve, he wins the award for 🦇💩 crazy statement of the day! 🏆 Et l’amour, putain ! Réduire des vies à être issues utilement d’une majorité de viols et d’incestes, c’est être transgressif en étant sciemment inhumain : une perversité morale ! 🇫🇷 Nut job... Could U say that again,I think I had something ridiculous in my ear. These are the ppl running the show,folks.

What a totally normal Christian thought to have I am FED UP OF OLD WHITE MEN !!!!!! Nobody ever said politicians had to have a brain. Why are people like this in Congress. Damn America how the fuck did we put a man on the moon? Apparently stevie got too much of that neanderthal gene. This idiot should not be anywhere near Congress. Wish it was on the congressional record. I will never vote GOP. Period Damn wtf

Idiot Well that’s a very rapey thing to say

This is the GOP way of thought. WTF !!!! what? Omfg IDIOT! wtf? these people are whacko. This man needs to be kicked out of the GOP ASAP So, rapists are the heroes of the human race, and women should be thankful for sexual assaults, as long as they become pregnant. Since no woman ever got pregnant as a result of consensual sex.

So now I want to know how many people he's raped. Leave him alone, he's just proud of his heritage

This man could need a brain MRI PSA: Do not leave this man alone with little girl. Wow what anti science hatefulness...how such scum in office 👺👺👺👺 SteveKingIA is a craven moron. He’s so fucking dumb. You must live to make really ignorant statements. Wholly moley This man is a product of the devil and demon ...

I can think of one who probably had some incest in their tree.

oh cease. Too bad his mother didn't abort him It is clearly obvious that Steve King views women and children as property ... fear the Steve Kings of the world ... remove them from power wherever they may be found ... this is the only way humanity will continue to evolve ... come on Iowa, you're better than that

Who votes for creatures like this? how. is. this. guy. in. congress. What an idiotic thing to say. I’m not saying it never happened or happens but certainly it is not responsible for the population. The marbles are so loose in this guys head... Who votes for this guy? Did he just admit to rape and incest sounds like it to me

2nd level distractions to our collapsing economy. Pay attention to the LOUDEST members of the GOP the next few days. Holy fucking shit lol He’s still employed? A comment like this should take him directly to a mental institution. Very dangerous! Wtf, is wrong with these Republicans?😡🤬💩 🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️🤦‍♀️

Well he probably wouldn't be alive Wait, so he's anti abortion but pro rape and incest? That's messed up even for Republicans Uh oh, Steve King is at it again. Steve king visiting family. Mum, aunt and sister came out to meet him. She was was looking well.....

Old man talking out of his a$$ This world is FUBAR!!! Ironically, him existing is an awesome argument FOR abortion. Hope he doesn’t have daughters So Iowa (IA-4th)? This is the best you have to offer from your State? Think you can do better. Can someone push him off the plane over Siberia? So sick and sad Are the voters in his district that stupid that they would want a congressman like this representing them? I don’t care what their 401k looks like—-well maybe after today they will care—-this guy is crazy!

GOP = pro-rape and incest party

He seems like a swell guy. He’s perfectly suited for politics Seriously? No population left? How does this man still have a job? Unbelievably stupid. SteveKingResign I would not be surprised to learn that Steve King is the product of incest. I doubt there are a lot of branches on his family tree. This Guy is Horrible

You wouldn't FOR SURE. your dad was a rapist. I'd be happy with just the criteria of stupid, then this story wouldn't have existed This is the worst, craziest stupidest shit I've ever heard Okay... you just can’t deal with this type of crazy ... hey Iowa ... are you proud of this guy? You voted him in. Since 2003 ... your monkey your circus ... SteveKingResign iowa

Maybe in your family tree Just because the only times you’ve had sex were incest or when you were raping someone doesn’t mean that is normal... Blimey Then you realize this asshole is a member of the United States House Of Representatives. This begs the question. What the fuck is wrong with the people of the Iowa 4th Congressional District? Let’s put a wall around that.

He's back at it again.... What kind of monster raised him? So is he admiring to rape and incest sounds like it to me Well that's just sick ...if rape an incest is that common it just proves men are pigs and and your disgusting for trying to make it acceptable...or are you just ignorant Way too much information about King's family tree.

What an uninformed, stupid comment ! Well, that tells us something about his family! WTF is wrong with this guy? What childhood trauma caused his sick, twisted thinking Geez, what an absolute knuckle-dragger. I only “liked” this as a supreme example of The Superior Stupidity Award. I know, sounds oxymoronic. It is. So, we’re just one big, dysfunctional bastard species, eh? Okay... Iowa, our condolences. Someone check DNA of RepSteveKingIA

SteveKingIA I don't even want to know about the skeletons in Steve King's family closet. That is one screwed-up family, am I right, SteveKingIA? A lot of those women aren’t even in our family trees cuz they died while having an unsafe abortion, Steve.
