Akin did mean to say that the rate of pregnancies from rape is low, and he attempted to distinguish between violent rape and unsubstantiated claims of rape.
Those are both legitimate, but as you say, it’s not permissible to talk about them.
What it did do, though, was finally flush Romney out.
Actually, though, Romney will see this as being to his benefit. He gets to claim being a rape, incest, life of mother exceptions type of pro-lifer.
More importantly, it tells us that Romney will appoint justices who will keep abortion legal so that rape and incest exceptions are covered.
I thought that was what the ‘morning’ after pill was all about?
Women have been getting around the issue long before Roe v Wade with a D & C in the first trimester.
Go ahead and vote for Obama then if you like him better.
Obama doesn’t mind leaving live babies (failed abortions) in a clothes hamper until they die, go ahead vote for Obama.
Don’t talk trash in here about God and how he will punish you for voting for Romney while helping Obama get re-elected. That’s BS.
Todd Akin is a strong supporter of the right to bear arms; he voted for the Ryan Budget; he has a 96% approval rating by the American Conservative Union; he is pro life and voted against state tax money funding abortions and he voted against the l993 tax increase and education spending increase. LOOK at Claire and her plane? her tax controversy? her vote for Obamacare. Akin made a gaffe and corrected it..he was selected by the voters of MO to run for Senate. To hell with Scott Brown and the other rinos. Google Akins RECORD VS MCCASKILLS...the man is a good conservative and I am ashamed at the gop for jumping ship. Reminds me of how Bush treated Scooter Libby..he abandoned him.
