In his final face-to-face campaign against Democratic challenger Tammy Duckworth, Republican candidate Joe Walsh like other Republicans proved that he has no knowledge about abortion.
He told reporters that there should be no abortion exception for the "life of the mother" because"with modern technology and science, you can't find one instance"in which a woman would actually die. "There is no such exception as life of the mother, and as far as health of the mother, same thing," he said in his remarks on an Illinois radio station WGN.
His remarks about abortion do not come as a surprise since this is not the first time a Republican has proved his ignorance when it comes to their knowledge an abortion. Most famous and outrageous of all comments was made by Republican Todd Akin who proclaimed a belief that women’s bodies are able to prevent pregnancy in case of ‘legitimate rape’.
