GOP Senate Candidate: Victims Of ‘Legitimate Rape’ Won’t Become Pregnant

E-mail Print PDF

Todd AkinSenate Candidate and Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO) told a local television station on Sunday that “legitimate rape” rarely produces pregnancy because “the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.” Akin cited conversations with unnamed doctors for the bizarre claim.

Akin sponsored legislation that would redefine rape in federal law to limit funding for abortion providers and has a long track record of uninformed and extreme views about women’s health.

TVNL Comment:  This moron is an elected official who is running for the US Senate. And there are actually voters in Missouri who will vote for him this November.  How embarrassing is that?
