ST. LOUIS Missouri Congressman Todd Akin, a conservative Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate, said in an interview broadcast Sunday that womens bodies can prevent pregnancies in the case of a legitimate rape, adding that conception in such cases is rare.
Akin, a six-term congressman running against incumbent Democrat Sen. Claire McCaskill, was asked in an interview on St. Louis television station KTVI if he would support abortions for women who have been raped.
It seems to me first of all from what I understand from doctors thats really rare, Akin said.If its a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down, Akin said of a rape victims chances of becoming pregnant."
