Rebecca Kiessling: “Abortion is worse than rape!”

Alright, so she didn’t say it exactly like that.

I wrote about this abortio-fascist the other day and apparently I wasn’t the only one who was shocked and offended by her “conceived in rape” tour in Mississippi. It would seem that MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow also took her to task over her brazenly insensitive call for the propagation of genetic material from rapists.

Well, now Kiessling has responded with the same type of meaningless but heartfelt non sequiturs that she smears over the homepage of her website. In her recent rebuttal of Maddow’s “attack”, she excoriates the liberal pundit for referring to her as “the rapist’s child”. This statement, while factually correct, is painted as an intentional insult at Kiessling’s heritage (by Kiessling, mind you, not by Maddow).

It should strike no one as odd that Kiessling was able to traverse the logical gymnastics required to take that as an insult. Keep in mind that this is a person who says on her own website that people who favor woman having access to abortion are, for all intents and purposes, saying that they wish she was dead.

So this despicable abortion-that-should-have-been says in her response (without the slightest hint of irony or at least a winking emoticon):

[A]fter everything they’ve been through, Maddow has the audacity to refer to the rape victim’s child as being “the rapist’s child”?! The ones who abort are four times more likely to die within the next year*. If you truly have compassion for a rape victim, you’d want to protect her from the abortion and not the baby! A baby is not the worst thing that could ever happen to a rape victim — an abortion is.

Okay, Rebecca, once for the record:

“You personally haven’t been through anything.”

That’s right. Take a second to let that one soak in. The fact that you’re able to make a career out of glorifying your mother’s tragedy doesn’t entitle you to any second-hand empathy. You have no pre-zygotic memories of your mother’s trauma. You did not suffer. Your mother did. Your mother was hamstrung by nosey fucktards like yourself that thought they knew better what your mother could do with her body than she did. She was raped once by your father (and yes, regardless of your interrobang, you are the “rapist’s child”) and then again by an uncaring, unsympathetic, male dominated legal system.

So, for the record, the worst thing that happens to a rape victim is not an abortion and it’s not a baby. It is being raped, you callous bitch.
