Controversial Rep. Steve King (R-IA) sided with rapists on Wednesday when he claimed that both “rape and incest” are needed to help the human population grow.

The Des Moines Register reports that King told the Westside Conservative Club that humanity might not exist anymore if there hadn’t been incidences of rape and incest throughout history.

“hat if we went back through all the family trees and just pulled out anyone who was a product of rape or incest?” he asked rhetorically. “Would there be any population of the world left if we did that? Considering all the wars and all the rapes and pillages that happened throughout all these different nations, I know that I can’t say that I was not a part of a product of that.”

King went on to say that it would be wrong to have an abortion due to rape or incest because it would be punishing the baby for “the sin of the father, or of the mother.”
