Sharron Angle: You Can’t Have An Abortion Because It’s God’s Plan You Were Raped

The only vote this woman would get from me is for Supreme Fucking Asshole of the Year.
Sharon Angle, the Tea Party member and GOP challenger to Harry Reid’s Nevada Senate seat, is anti-choice. She also apparently thinks that if you’re raped by your father and want to have an abortion, you have to “have a little faith” and accept that it was part of God’s plan.
While Angle hasn’t said a peep to the press as of late, Think Progress found an interview with conservative talk show host David Manders from January, where she was more than a little vocal about abortion:

MANDERS: I too am pro-life, but I’m also pro-choice. Do you understand what I say when I mean that?
ANGLE: Well, I’m pro responsible choice. There’s choice to abstain, choice to use contraceptives … there’s all kinds of good choice…
MANDERS: Is there any reason at all for an abortion?
ANGLE: Not in my book.
MANDERS: So, in other words, rape and incest would not be something?
ANGLE: You know, I’m a Christian, and I believe that God has a plan and a purpose for each one of our lives and that he can intercede in all kinds of situations and we need to have a little faith in many things.

There’s nothing more heinous to me than people who use “God’s will” as a means to propagate their oppressive views. This woman cannot, I repeat, cannot win this Senate seat. Listen below; spread the word.
