    Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin said that pregnancy from rape is “really rare” because “if it’s a legitimate rape,the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.” This scum is leading in the Missouri polls! Missouri women better think about voting to ensure this knuckle dragger doesn’t become a U.S. Senator.

    The statement on “the female body” being able to shut things down was the creepiest ignorance I’ve EVER heard from a member of Congress. Pat Robertson? Maybe, but an elected representative???

    @dtroutma

    Spontaneous abortions occur when the fetus is very ill, or abnormal enough genetically. Trisomy 21, Down’s Syndrome babies have a smaller survivable genetic defect because the 21 chromosome has a smaller amount of genetic material. We don’t see trisomy 1 or trisomy 3 survive. The smaller the chromosome number,the larger the chromosome, copied or genetic deletions large enough are not viable.

    @ahab

    And what does that have to do with rape?

    I think Ahab was simply replying to “the female body being able to shut things down” part of dtroutma’s post. I did not read in Ahab’s reply that it was relative to rape.



    Rather interesting this case but it won’t reflect favourably on your electorate if this bloke manages to get himself elected.
    Apparently there have been precedents, elected & wannabe politicians: Henry Aldridge, Stephen Freind, Clayton Williams…

    What doe that even mean? a woman’s body has a way of shutting WHAT down?? a baby? Those little buggers don’t just curl up and die if they are from rape or incest! What shuts down? You mean a woman can keep herself from getting pregnant? If that worked we would have a LOT Fewer people. .A womans “lady parts” shutdown?? What does that mean??

    said: “”Now waiting for the fat pig to say that women who were raped and give birth are sluts…"

    Why wait? It’s been said before.

    …ovaries are actually sentient, intelligent and quite capable of defending themselves from marauding evil sperm. To suggest otherwise is to denigrate women. :-|

    This man is a member of the House Science Committee. Does that explain anything?

    @NebulousRikulau

    om Q R is quite correct about the intent of my post. I was assuming that Todd Akin somehow came to a very ignorant position based on the fact that some pregnancies end in spontaneous abortion.

    @NebulousRikulau

    You are absolutely correct in that it has absolutely nothing to do with rape.

    If there is such as thing as “legitimate rape”, then what is “illegitimate rape”? I think there’s a suggestion that women make this up all the time, so it isn’t really rape, or maybe that they bring it on themselves. Does anyone have a better interpretation?

    Republican birth control? Wait was this a Tea Party documentary narrated by Palin?
