On Democrat party attempts to exploit the Todd Akin controversy…

The Democrats are gonna try to go to town on this Akin thing as much as they can. Their convention is gonna be the pro-abortion convention. They're gonna end up celebrating abortion at their convention. And, folks, let me tell you something. I don't want you to tell anybody. Let them do it. Let them turn over their convention to Planned Parenthood and to NARAL and every other Feminazi out there, you let them do it. Let them go right ahead and turn their convention into pro-abortion. If that's what they think is gonna win the election for them, if they really think this War on Women thing, that they can play it out, let them do it. ‘cause you and I know full well that their view on abortion is not the majority position in this country.

On his own apology to contraception activist Sandra Fluke…

I don’t expect – and I know you don’t either – morality, intellectual honesty, from the Left. They’ve demonstrated over, and over, a willingness to say or do anything to advance their agenda. It’s what they do. It’s what we fight against here every day. But this is the mistake I made. In fighting them, on this issue last week, I became like them. Against my own instincts, against my own knowledge, against everything I know to be right and wrong, I descended to their level, when I used those two words to describe Sandra Fluke. That was my error. I became like them. And I feel very badly about that. I’ve always tried to maintain a very high degree of integrity, of independence, on this program. Nevertheless, those two words were very inappropriate, they were uncalled for, they distracted from the point that I was actually trying to make, and I again sincerely apologize to Ms. Fluke for using those two words to describe her. I do not think she is either of those two words. I did not think, last week, that she is either of those two words. The apology to her, over the weekend, was sincere. It was simply for using inappropriate words in a way I never do, and in so doing, I became like the people we oppose. I ended up descending to their level. It’s important not to be like them, ever. Particularly in fighting them.

On the testimony of a Georgetown University co-ed at a congressional hearing in favor of President Obama’s contraception mandate on religious institutions…

A Georgetown University co-ed told Nancy Pelosi’s hearing that the women in her law school program are having so much sex they are going broke buying birth control pills. Speaking at a hearing held by Pelosi to tout Obama’s mandate that virtually every health-insurance plan cover the full cost of contraception and abortion-inducing products, Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke said that it’s too expensive to have sex in law school without mandated insurance coverage. Apparently four out of every ten co-eds are having so much sex that it’s hard to make ends meet if they have to pay for their own contraception, said Sandra Fluke’s research. Can you imagine if you’re her parents – how proud of Sandra Fluke you would be? Your daughter goes up to a congressional hearing conducted by the Botox-filled Nancy Pelosi, and testifies she’s having so much sex she can’t afford her own birth-control pills and she agrees that Obama should provide them. Or the Pope. Forty percent of the female students at Georgetown Law reported to us, said Sandra Flake (sic) that they struggled financially as a result of this policy. The policy is Georgetown University’s student insurance does not cover contraception. It costs a female student $3,000 to have protected sex over the course of her three-year stint at law school according to the calculations. “Without insurance coverage, contraception as you know can cost a woman over $3,000 during law school,” Fluke told a hearing. Three thousand dollars for birth control over three years – that’s a thousand dollars a year for sex, and she wants us to pay for it.

On the elite media’s double standard in hazing Republican candidates on their supposedly radical views on contraception in 2012, but not asking candidate Obama in 2008 about his sponsoring of legislation which allowed the killing of babies who survived attempted abortions

The woman’s decision is to abort. So, they do the procedure. Something goes wrong – imagine that – and the baby’s born alive. The legislation brings in another doctor to finish the job so as not to burden the woman with an unwanted child. And to take the original doctor off the hook and not have him undergoing a guilt trip. And that’s what the legislation was, and that’s what Newt Gingrich was talking about. And he was saying, how come nobody – you know, talk about extremism? – nobody asked Obama that. In 2008. So they [the media] immediately start doing a fact-check to find out if indeed Obama was asked about it and they say “Well, of course he was. He was asked about partial-birth abortion all the time.” This is not partial-birth abortion. This is botched abortion.
