Christian talker: Rape and incest exceptions are like allowing unfettered Muslim abortion
Radio host Steve Deace during a December 2013 appearance.

Banning abortion except in cases of rape and incest is like banning abortion except if you're Muslim or Jewish, according to Steve Deace, a nationally-syndicated conservative Christian radio host.


"And might I tell you if you listen to nothing else I say today, there is no such thing as pro-life with exceptions," he said last month in Iowa at the Lutherans For Life National Conference. "It doesn't exist. If you’re pro-life with exceptions you’re just pro-choice with fewer choices."

"That’s really what that is," Deace continued. "And if you think I’m wrong – OK -- how about we put forth a pro-life bill that will save every kid but those born to Muslims? They are only 0.7 percent of the population. In fact, there are more kids conceived in rape or incest in America – about one percent – than the total population of Muslims in America."

"So we make rape and incest exceptions all the time and say those things don’t matter, so why don’t we just put forth pro-life bills that say, ‘Hey, if you’re a Muslim you can abort your kid if you want, we will let you kill it.’ Why wouldn’t we do that? Why isn't that the same thing?"

He said the same thing could apply to people of the Hindu and Jewish faith.

"In fact, there is even a historical precedent for that," Deace remarked, referring to the Holocaust. "Why make exceptions for kids conceived in rape and incest -- if they don't matter, why do the Jewish, Hindu, or Muslim kids matter?"
