War on women, what war on women? (Looks around wildly for invisible war on women made up by democratic commies) Oh wait, this might be it!
TPM— Rep. Todd Akin, the Republican nominee for Senate in Missouri who is running against Sen. Claire McCaskill, justified his opposition to abortion rights even in case of rape with a claim that victims of “legitimate rape” have unnamed biological defenses that prevent pregnancy.
“First of all, from what I understand from doctors [pregnancy from rape] is really rare,” Akin told KTVI-TV in an interview posted Sunday. “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”
He understands very little, obviously, outside of the comforting magic inherent in his Bronze-age mythology and flaky new age conservative wackiness . But I’ll bet you Akin’s small dollar campaign contributions spike because of this.
