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.

And those folks voted against Romney because of his religion.
Most pro-lifers believe rape to be one of the few exceptions. Just like Romney.
