Todd Akin is running in Missouri and made some controversial comments on August 19, 2012 concerning rape. He was asked by a interviewer from a St. Louis TV Station whether women who have been raped should be allowed to have an abortion.
The Piers Morgan directly addressed this controvery by inviting Kiessling and Allred both conceived in rape. Kiessling is an attorney and was interviewed with Gloria Allred another attorney.
Kiessling noted, “Modern America doesn’t allow us to kill a rapist or even a child molester. The Supreme Court has said that they did not deserve the death penalty. And I don’t believe that I or any other child similarly situated deserve the death penalty for the crimes of our fathers.”
“You talk about how much you care about women. Well, what good is my right to anything as a woman if I don’t have my right to life?” asked Kiessling.
“Rape victims are four times more likely to die within the next year after (they have had an) abortion, from suicide, murder, drug overdose, etc.” Kiessling in reference to the victimised women, said “I want to protect them from the rapist,” , “and from the abortion, not the baby. A baby is not the worst thing that could ever happen to a rape victim — an abortion is. We need to educate the American public on the truth in this matter and not make public policy based on myth and misinformation.”
