Akin really blew it, and we need to be careful to avoid similar mistakes.If folks in general cared about the unborn and women who got raped, they would have found a way to understand Akin (I had no difficulty at all), not criticize him. He's in the corner of pro-life. Is it because he opened up a topic that Romney had buried that bothers people? Or are many Republicans actually not pro-life?

Exactly. The election is about the economy not “social issues” (another term like “pro-choice” to cover the acceptance of murder of the most innocent). Our bad economy is part of divine judgment for choosing abortion.
Sex is for self gratification not marriage or children.
Accepting Contraception has led to abortion becoming a right protected by law.
Mother Teresa: watch...nuclear war...follows.
Do you work? Do you think gov’t stealing half your income (so half the country can sit on their asses doing nothing)is moral? Maybe more people are concerned about that than some unelectable Senate candidates “pro-life” bonafides. Missouri is now lost and so is the election. But the “pro-life” zealots are happy...and we get 4 more years of Obamian communism. Just wonderful....
It’s that stupid can wreck any otherwise good view.
There are a lot of people on both sides of issues that I could support or (at least) respect, but some of the idiocy that emerges just makes association therewith toxic.
