I wonder what they will teach them? They don’t want to keep losing elections, but they also want to justify forcing a woman to carry her rapist’s baby to term.

The usual plan is to speak in weasel word platitudes about the “importance of the culture of life” and then vote for every hard-line POS legislation coughed up by RW nut jobs.

Why special training is needed for this is beyond comprehension — are they really that stupid?

Yes, they most certainly are.

Because some Republican officeholders can’t figure out what even Ann Coulter understands: Rape is hideous crime and trying to minimize it or justify not allowing a woman who was a victim of it an abortion is both stupid and insane.

Some of these GOP office holders are true believers in the “abortion = murder” cult, and cannot shut up about this issue. Not so incidentally, a lot of stuff the GOP is pushing these days (fetal personhood, rights of the unborn, etc) tend to establish the basis for a no-exceptions abortion ban, so it is fair to regard the GOP as a whole as having a real problem on this issue.

And what the SBA List is saying is that those who have a moral problem with a rape exception are liable to have an electoral problem as well. Classic question: What matters most, purity or victory? (My own vote is for victory.)

I understand they hired the same group that Todd Akin hired, the Forch Aun consultants.

They told Republicans that the way to convince people that raped women don’t need abortions is to emphasize that rape can mean anal rape. Republicans are advised never use the word “rape” but instead to repeat the phrase “surprise butt secks” as often as possible.

Also they’re told that they should encourage anal rape among sex offenders. They’ll be promoting the slogan “No means stick it in her butt!
