Rep. Todd Akin: "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."


Someone who believes nonsense like this has no part overseeing science policy. llllllllllllllll

    I'm surprised that no legitimate Medical Professional has sucker punched him for grossly misrepresenting their chosen field (if only in name.)

    Everyone should be represented on every committee. Todd Akin is the voice on the Science and Tech Committee, of the people who don't know the first damned thing about science.

    Look up Maxine Waters and Shela Jackson Lee. This guy is a genius compared to those two. I will even throw in Debbie Shultz and Nancy Pelosi if you think I am being raciest. All of the representatives are industrial strength idiots that stick their foot in their mouths every time they speak.

    Apparently, but my 5th grader just made the same mistake that Akin made. My 6th grader is now ripping him a new one for not knowing that.

    This repressive ignorant turd needs to be removed from any position of influence before he does any more damage.

    Anybody remember Atkin is the guy that said The Voting Rights Act Of 1965 Should Be Overturned?

    He has already removed himself from the human race.

    Rep. Akins' stated position mirrors the official GOP platform! He just made the mistake of stating it out loud.

    He has not scientific knowledge, obviously, so he should not be setting or deciding policy in the arena of science and especially of scientific ethics.

    Someone THAT far out of touch with scientific fact should NOT be allowed to stay on the House Science & Technology Committee. He should go back to school and learn something including how not to make idiotic, uneducated, ridiculous statements.

    Absolutely. I've already contacted Boehner's office and asked him to remove him from that committee. I don't expect an answer and I doubt he'll be removed but I tried.

    "legitimate rape" what may I ask makes rape "legitimate"? And do we have proof of this while her body responds thing? Because last I checked its nearly impossible to control that. In fact records have been made (and quite a lot of them) of victims feeling "pleasure" over said assault because they can't control it. Said "pleasure" is the cause of a lot of emotional trauma and guilt on the part of the victim.

    So I suppose that's not "legitimate rape" then? Why the hell is this guy in office in the first place?

    It is so ignorant and vicious its offensive beyond reason. Even if its just a lie to attempt to manipulate people, the immorality and hostility involved is 100% unacceptable.
