Rep. Steve King (R-IA) on Wednesday defended his position to ban abortions for victims of  rape or incest by saying both things have been vital to maintaining the human population. 

“What if we went back through all the family trees and just pulled out anyone who was a product of rape or incest? Would there be any population of the world left if we did that?” King told the Westside Conservative Club in Iowa. “Considering all the wars and all the rapes and pillages that happened throughout all these different nations, I know that I can’t say that I was not a part of a product of that,” he added .

The Des Moines Register reported King was defending his decision now to allow exceptions for rape and incest victims in anti-abortion legislation he previously introduced in Congress.
