Lemons Into Rapey-Ade

Republican Senate candidate Sharon Angle was recently quoted in an interview about her stance on abortion in the case of rape and incest. This is what transpired:

Interviewer: "What do you say then to a young girl, I am going to place it as he said it, when a young girl is raped by her father, let's say, and she is pregnant. How do you explain this to her in terms of wanting her to go through the process of having the baby?"

Angle: "I think that two wrongs don't make a right. And I have been in the situation of counseling young girls, not 13 but 15, who have had very at risk, difficult pregnancies. And my counsel was to look for some alternatives, which they did. And they found that they had made what was really a lemon situation into lemonade." [emphasis added]

Now, I'm actually of the camp that you can't really be "Pro Life" except for it in the case of rape or incest, because it insinuates that human baby life is precious unless it was a rape thing - then it's not really the woman's fault and the "life" argument goes down the drain. So I'm okay when I hear that someone has made a choice across the board, even if I disagree.

But lemons into lemonade. Hmmm... I don't know about you but I just lost my appetite for anything sweet and/or sour. Thanks to this busted lady, I can't even eat a Sour Patch Kid without thinking of rape and incest. And I don't know how much sugar and water it would take to make that situation more enjoyable. I'm also pretty sure that lemonade would taste like rape, shame, hatred and anger.

Damn you, Sharon Angle for ruining Lemonade. Damn. You.
