Steve Kind Just Defended His Rape And Incest Comments, Says He Is ‘100 Percent Correct’

Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) doubled down on his remarks about banning all abortions, even in cases of incest and rape, and claimed that he talked to genealogist about it who said he’s “100 percent correct.”

King said at a news conference in Des Moines, Iowa, that he stood by his comments and claimed that genealogists have reached out to back him up.

“I would point out that genealogists have contacted me and said that’s 100 percent correct. I’d deliver that in a little softer way, though. And a softer way is this: Most of us have seen the movie ‘It’s a Wonderful Life,'” King said, referring to the 1946 film in which the protagonist, George Bailey, sees how his community would have fared if he’d never been born. “Think what that means to all of us.”

“So it was an objectively honest and accurate statement. But I think it was willfully misinterpreted. I care about all people. And I think we should look back in our family trees and wonder,” King added.

King had initially come under fired after claiming that there wouldn’t be “any population of the world left” if rape and incest didn’t happen.

“What if we went back through all the family trees and just pulled those people out that were products of rape and incest? Would there be any population of the world left if we did that?” King said, as first reported by the Des Moines Register.

“Considering all the wars and all the rapes and pillages taken place and whatever happened to culture after society? I know I can’t certify that I’m not a part of a product of that.”
