Angle to Rape Victims: Lemons Into Lemonade

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s Republican challenger in Nevada, Tea Partier Sharron Angle, continues to give Michael Steele a run for his money: She says teenage girls who are pregnant from rape should turn lemons into lemonade. “I think that two wrongs don’t make a right,” Angle said in a radio interview in June. “And I have been in the situation of counseling young girls, not 13 but 15, who have had very at-risk, difficult pregnancies. And my counsel was to look for some alternatives, which they did. And they found that they had made what was really a lemon situation into lemonade.” Angle had previously called pregnancies caused by rape or incest part of “God’s plan.”
