@patchgrabber: I just don't see it that way. Here`s a quote (what I assume to be the statements in question?) from our source:
However, he stumbled when asked about how he would convince a daughter or granddaughter who was the victim of a rape that she should carry her potential child to term.
Mr. Smith replied that he "lived something similar to that with my own family, and she chose life. I commend her for that." To me, he is comparing the act of convincing his daughter to keep the child to the act of convincing a hypothetical daughter who was the victim of a rape to keep the child. In my opinion, he does not directly compare the act of rape, only the act of convincing the mother to keep the child.

So instead of being happy for his daughter and her boyfriend he had the same emotional reaction as he would if she had been raped, all because they were not married? What a horrible father.
