MO-Gov: Catharine Hanaway (R), "Liberal 'War On Women' May Lead To Child Porn"

Todd Akin is back but in a whole new form of former U.S. Attorney and Gubernatorial candidate, Catherine Hanaway (R. MO):

During an appearance at the Educational Policy Conference in St. Louis, Catharine Hanaway discussed the "war on women."

"So, the liberals want to talk about conservatives waging a war on women. But, think about what they talk about. When their chief criticism of conservatives, the chief criticism is that we stand up for the sanctity of life. That because we are pro-life we are somehow against women," Hanaway said, according to audio highlighted by Salon. "And I am here to say that their culture of permissiveness towards sexual activity is the real war on women."

She then claimed that this "culture of sexual permissiveness" has led to more unmarried women having children. And she argued that culture has "impoverished" women and children. - TPM, 2/4/15

But wait, there's more:

Hanaway proceeded to charge that this “liberal framework,” by affirming “every sexual preference,” fosters pedophilia and child porn.

“But it goes a step further, and it’s that step further that I want to talk about today. And this is the hard part. So, if you pursue this course that sexual permissiveness is to be valued, which is the liberal framework and that you should protect sexual permissiveness through abortions and other things, you lead to a conclusion where every sexual preference is acceptable,” she said.

“What concerns me is the slide in our culture that says, ‘Hey, everything is okay and so why should just having a picture of something be a crime, because to possess child pornography is a crime, why should that be a crime?’ Well, it should be a crime, and this is some of the difficult stuff I have to talk to you about.” Hanaway later added.

A former Speaker of the state House of Representatives and unsuccessful candidate for Missouri Secretary of State in 2004, Hanaway was appointed by President George W. Bush to serve as U.S. Attorney for the eastern district of Missouri in 2005. She served in that position until the conclusion of Bush’s administration in 2009, joining former U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft’s law firm upon leaving that post. - Salon, 2/3/15
