Rep. Steve King Is Stunned To Hear How Horrible Incest Is After He Defended Rape And Incest

Only hours after Republican Rep. Steve King of Iowa defended rape and incest, he was schooled about incest by Katie Koehler, a retired Mason City public school teacher, at a town hall forum in Rockwell, Iowa.

Koehler told King that one of her 10-year-old students became pregnant after she was brutally raped by her uncle, notes Iowa Starting Line:

As a fourth grade teacher, I had a student that was raped by their uncle and became pregnant. It does happen. I do know, at the time, that the parents chose to terminate the pregnancy, and I understand why. It’s a 10-year-old child … I’m just wondering. I have my own personal beliefs. But if it’s a zero-tolerance policy, I am concerned of the health and safety of our youth.

KIng, who claimed the civilization was dependent on rape and incest, expressed his shock, but refused to retract his sick statement:

I’ve never heard of a case that extreme until today. Under the circumstances we’re in right now, I’d rather deliberate on this and try to get you an answer back.
