A Republican Senate nominee found himself in hot water on Sunday for suggesting that instances of "legitimate rape" rarely results in pregnancy.

Rep. Todd Akin, a Republican who's locked in a hard-fought campaign in Missouri to unseat Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill, was answering a question regarding his position on abortion rights in instances when a woman is a victim of rape.

"People always want to make it into one of those things — well, how do you slice this particularly tough ethical question," Akin said in an interview on KTVI-TV, video of which was circulated by the Democratic super PAC American Bridge.

“First of all, from what I understand from doctors,[pregnancy from rape] is really rare. If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down," Akin said.

Regarding his opinion on whether to allow for an abortion in such instances, Akin added:“But let’s assume that maybe that didn’t work or something. I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be on the rapist and not attacking the child.”

Well, when you let the Teahadists demand equal time for Jesus in SCIENCE classes, this is the sort of understanding of biology that you'll end up with. Remember, these are the same morons that defended Rick Santorum's comments about babies born from rape being a "gift from god".

If these jackholes want to live in a medieval theocratic society, they should move to Waziristan.

The government has no place going anywhere near this issue. It is a choice a women should have and it is none of the governments business.

I agree 100% and the government should not pay for it with taxpayer funds correct

Legitimate rape? What the heck is that? Good Lord. With idiots like this in congress goes to prove that the government should not be involved in ANY legislation concerning women's rights.

My favorite comment on the whole debacle thus far:

"Akin should have to carry his candidacy to term, even if it endangers the life of the Republican party."

1. He's a scumbag, and the law will deal with him accordingly.

2. How is that in any way relevant to this topic?

3. Read up on "false equivalency".

The topic was about yet another anti-science Teatard trying to legislate women's health issues when he clearly knows NOTHING about biology. My comment pointed out that as long as you republicans pander to those idiots just to win elections, your party will continue it's slow, depressing slide into irrelevance. You brought up a completely unrelated person facing criminal charges unrelated in any way to the topic at hand because the only defense you could come up with was to point out a democrat that did something wrong. I addressed the topic of the thread. You crapped out some lame false equivalency.

You, or your fake alternate screen name, are among the very least qualified to comment on anyone's credibility.

So, when a democrat gets busted in a sex scandal, it implies ALL democrats that are bad... but when a republican spews 13th century religious drivel as "science", he's a lone nut?

Congratulations, you're a moron.

Feel free to list the lies and falsehoods I've presented here, as well as some sort of facts to back your claims.

This thread was started before the Republican party went into the "hands off mode".

It is interesting after hearing / reading the comments of the Republicans that they seem more concerned about the damage done to the GOP, then how this may effect women.

So typical.
