GOP Senate Candidate Todd Akin: ‘Legitimate Rape’ Victims Won’t Get Pregnant

VIDEO – Rep. Todd Akin (Missouri), a Republican Senate Candidate, questioned the ability of a woman to become pregnant from a rape saying “if it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that down”.  Last year, Akin joined with Mitt Romney’s vice presidential candidate Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) as two of the original co-sponsors of an anti-abortion bill that attempted to define some forms of rape as not eligible for abortion of a rape-induced pregnancy.  Paul Ryan, like Mitt Romney, is against abortion even in cases of rape or incest.
