Rep. Peter Roskam on rape and abortion

Rep. Peter Roskam (R-IL06) is being challenged by Jill Morgenthaler. This campaign is exposing Roskam as an anti-abortion extremist.

Pioneer Press (Josh Singer) interviewed the candidates on the issues. Here's the part on abortion. (h/t Rich Miller)

Morgenthaler... calls Roskam an "ideologue" because, for example, he opposes abortion even in the case of rape or incest. Citing the late Congressman Henry Hyde, who represented the 6th District for 16 terms until 2006, Roskam said people cannot be categorized by the way in which they were conceived and asked in the Pioneer Press interview why women can have abortions if rapists cannot be executed. (emphasis added)

Roskam is a nut.

Please spread the word far and wide. And give generously to Jill Morgenthaler, Colonel, US Army (retired).

more Roskam nuttiness

MyDD is not accepting the cut-and-past embedding of the You Tube code. Morgenthaler has a campaign commercial that discusses Roskam's bill to... get this... the dude wants to require couples using in vitro fertilization to have all embryos be brought to term.

Re: Rep. Peter Roskam on rape and abortion

His ads are sleazy as usual and I notice he very carefully and deliberately avoids 2 things in them:

1. Mentioning that he's running for RE-election.
2. Mentioning that he's been a loyal Bush Republican. Or ANY kind of Republican for that matter.

He wouldn't be in office now if it weren't for the deluge of robocalls made to appear as if they were coming from his opponent.
