    Here is exactly what Akin said that EVERYONE is SO.... upset with!!!

    It seems to me, first of all, from what I understand from doctors, that's really rare. If it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. But let's assume that maybe that didn't work or something. You know, I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be on the rapist and not attacking the child.


    GOP Rep. Todd Akin Criticized For Rape Comment : NPR

    Again taken totally OUT of CONTEXT ...LIKE "UNCHAINED"!!!!

    Akin says that if it wasn't consensual sex, but actual physical totally against the woman's will (LEGITIMATE), sometimes NATURE will NOT allow conception to occur.

    So Akin asks a logical question, JUST because the woman is inconvenienced by a pregnancy why should a human being DIE??:??

    Seems like a legitimate statement:
    Are you in favor of killing a human being JUST because someone is INCONVENIENCED?


    Studies have found approximately 5 percent of rapes result in pregnancy.



    All Things Considered host Melissa Block talks with Nick Baumann of Mother Jones magazine about the belief at the core of Missouri state Rep. Todd Akin's furor-raising statement over the weekend: that "legitimate rape" rarely leads to pregnancy.

    The belief that hormones or adrenaline protect women from conception during rape has been perpetuated for decades in American political discourse, without scientific basis.

    BAUMANN: So, as far as we can tell from CDC and medical studies and Planned Parenthood's released some numbers of their own, there are tens of thousands of pregnancies from rape in the U.S. each year. And about 5 percent of women who are raped get pregnant. About half of those pregnancies end in abortion..

    Progressives are the only ones allowed to misspeak and then change the narrative to "what they really meant to say".

    He didn't mean legitimate rape, he really meant forcible rape which now is more cloudy than it once was. Aside from that, he was stupid, ignorant, and utterly without a redeeming social quality. Which makes him obscene. In his mind, he believes that the voters will forgive him because he learned from his mistake. We'll see if they do because he's not dropping out.

    Let us not forget that he showed good form by using the Neocon phrase "Legitmate Rape".

    So IF 5% of ALL RAPES cause Pregnancies.
    In the United States of America in 2010 there were 84,767 rapes.
    Rape statistics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    That means at 5% or 4,238 births VERSUS
    the killing of 13,000 human beings from 1.3 million abortions due to "legitimate/illegitimate" rapes.

    According to Web MD, rape is the reason for 13,000 of 1.3 million annual abortions, or 1% of the total.
