What is an illegitimate rape? This is jaw-droppingly ignorant.
The democrats of Missouri knew he was an idiot so of course they supported the weakest opponent of McCaskill. If you know that they supported him by their vote, please show me the proof of that.
Anthony, I agree with you that since he was elected he should stay in the race. But here in Missouri a vote does not mean much. The conceal carry and puppy mill laws were reversed by the republican powers to be in Missouri. Apparently they did not feel that Missourians got it right or did not understand the law so they simply overturned popular vote.
And they wonder why there voter apathy.
What is really frightening is the fact that a poll shows he is still leading today in Missouri. That gives validity to the following CNN piece that it is not just Akin's viewpoint. Seriously, women, how can you support a candidate who believes there is such thing as legitimate or non-forcible rape?
He said a stupid thing, and he's clarified it. If he can still win, he should stay in. He won the nomination. But please, don't get out because a bunch of hippocrates on the left are calling for it.
These are the people that have an accused rapist, impeached president, abuser of women, admitted liar as their keynote speaker. Akin hasn't done anything like that guy.
"Resist, we much. Weï»¿ must, and we much. About that, be committed."
What is so frightening about a politician who believes that unborn human life is sacred?
What is frightening is that anyone could hear what Akin said and relate it in anyway to "human life is sacred".
There is a difference between the stupid things that politicians say, and the frightening things they actually believe.
Unless is is from the viewpoint of a rape victim who now finds herself pregnant and unable to get an abortion.
