“First of all, from what I understand from doctors [pregnancy from rape] is really rare. If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.” – Todd Akin [Gawker]
AS SOMEONE born and raised in Missouri it’s simply unacceptable to think that my home state could elect this ignorant man to the Senate. Todd Akin actually believes that a woman who’s been raped can “shut the whole thing down” and keep from becoming pregnant herself.
Claire McCaskill is a Blue Dog, Obama-backing Democrat with little to laud, but seriously, Missouri, even Republicans should send a message and either skip this vote on the ballot or simply write in someone else. Anyone voting for Todd Akin proves they don’t have our country’s best interest in mind.
If Akin can’t figure out the basics of human biology, which we all learn as a kid, there is no way he can make intelligent choices on war and peace.
Missourians have fallen a long way from Harry Truman.
