    Default GOP Senate Nominee: Victims Of ‘Legitimate Rape’ Do Not Get Pregnant

    http://www.mediaite.com/online/gop-s...-get-pregnant/

    “First of all, from what I understand from doctors, that’s really rare,” Akin said about pregnancy from rape. “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”

    Akin continued on to suggest that when those protections fail, abortion shouldn’t be an available course of action for the victim.

    “Let’s assume that maybe that didn’t work, or something,” he said. “I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be on the rapist and not attacking the child.”

    In a statement Sunday, Akin wrote that he misspoke in the interview. He maintained his opposition to abortion for victims of rape.

    "In reviewing my off-the-cuff remarks, it's clear that I misspoke in this interview and it does not reflect the deep empathy I hold for the thousands of women who are raped and abused every year," Akin wrote. "Those who perpetrate these crimes are the lowest of the low in our society and their victims will have no stronger advocate in the Senate to help ensure they have the justice they deserve."

    "I recognize that abortion, and particularly in the case of rape, is a very emotionally charged issue," Akin continued. "But I believe deeply in the protection of all life and I do not believe that harming another innocent victim is the right course of action. I also recognize that there are those who, like my opponent, support abortion and I understand I may not have their support in this election."

    Akin - who sits on the House Science, Space and Technology Committee - has long held a hard-line stance on abortion. He is opposed to abortions in all circumstances, and has said he also opposes the morning after pill, which he equates to abortion.

    McCaskill, who is up against Akin in November's general election, almost immediately struck upon her opponent's comments Sunday, writing on Twitter: "As a woman & former prosecutor who handled 100s of rape cases, I'm stunned by Rep Akin's comments about victims this AM."

    She later released a statement condemning her rival as "ignorant about the emotional and physical trauma brought on by rape."

    LOL. This gets me every time. Couldn't he just rephrase what he said? Did he need to "review" his remarks to realize he misspoke?

    That's so ingenuine to me.

    The Democratic senate incumbent ran ads during the primary to help Akins get the Republican nomination, as she thought he would be easiest to beat. She still losing pretty badly in the polls.

    If the guy never left his house and kept his mouth shut he'd win handily. He probably will anyway.

    The guy is on the House Science, Space and Technology Committee

    Politicians (of all parties) fascinate me, not because of my admiration, but my sheer amazement that they get away with being ignorant and liars.
