Mike Huckabee thinks rape gets a bad name

Janet and Mike Huckabee with Mitt and Ann Romney
Todd Akin and Mitt Romney supporter and fellow Republican Mike Huckabee wants to help out both campaigns by putting a positive face on "forcible rape" and the GOP position that abortion services for victims of rape should be criminalized.

Sure, "forcible rape" is horrible and indefensible and all that but rapes have produced some great people.
“Ethel Waters, for example, was the result of a forcible rape,” Huckabee said of the late American gospel singer. One-time presidential candidate Huckabee added: “I used to work for James Robison back in the 1970s, he leads a large Christian organization. He, himself, was the result of a forcible rape. And so I know it happens, and yet even from those horrible, horrible tragedies of rape, which are inexcusable and indefensible, life has come and sometimes, you know, those people are able to do extraordinary things.”
