GOP candidate says incest can be ‘voluntary’

A Republican candidate in Virginia says there should be no abortion exception for cases of incest. Why? He says because sometimes incest is “voluntary.”

What the hell is wrong with these people?

Bob Marshall, who is running for the seat being vacated by retiring Rep. Frank Wolf (R- VA10), explained in an interview with the Boston Globe in 1989 that he wouldn’t make exceptions for abortions, even in the case of rape and incest, stating: “What if incest is voluntary? Sometimes it is.”
