No. The problem with Akin and his kind are that they are so opposed to abortion under any circumstances that they are willing to claim that pregnancy does not result from "legitimate" rape. So they blame the victim for becoming pregnant.<quoted text>
We'd probably both be surprised at how many on the left share Akin's substituting "Bible teaching" for "biological reality" but the liberal media only cares about demonizing the right.
He made the mistake of using the word "legitimate" when talking about rape. Yes, it was a stupid thing to say. But he corrected it immediately and admitted he was wrong.
When liberals say something stupid or choose the wrong words, it's completely ignored and overlooked. Much less an apology forthcoming.
We all know it.
The number of people opposed to abortion in the case of rape or incest is tiny, mostly religious idiots. Same in the case of a badly deformed or retarded child.
And those folks voted against Romney because of his religion.
