No.* Iowa GOP Congressman Steve King, a Todd Akin backer, on whether incest or statutory rape can lead to pregnancy:
No. (Actually, his exact comment was, "Well, I just haven’t heard of that being a circumstance that’s been brought to me in any personal way and I’d be open to hearing discussion about that subject matter.")
* Paul Ryan, on allowing abortion in cases of rape and incest:
No. (Later, 'OK, yes in rape cases, but only because it's Romney's position.')* Any chance the Republican Party platform being prepared for next week's convention in Tampa will soften its long-standing position on allowing abortion in cases of rape and incest?
