Commie Democrat loons may revel in misrepresenting Akin and others respecting human life, but such reveling only reveals their own shallow and inhumane traits.

STAND YOUR GROUND, Mr. Akin!

Men have been persecuted for far too long because of the tyranny against our religious freedom. Do it for the WOMEN you represent and need your protection from themselves. You know what is best for them and you have the both the BIBLE and SCIENCE to back your principles.

You are a fair-weather friend. Mr. Akin is best friends with Saul Wry-an. They co-sponsored legislation and share the same views.

Are you throwing Saul Wry-an under the bus too???

SHAME ON YOU!!!!

I can understand Bishop Rmoney flip-flopping, but I sure hope Saul Wry-an stands for his PRINCIPLES, this time.

Agree. I LOVE Mr. Akin. He's pro-fetus. Did you know TWO of Bishop Rmoney's grandchildren were in vitro with a surrogate mother. Not only weren't they man enough to serve their country but they weren't man enough to raise their flags. It's been said that, as Mormons, they wanted boy babies, so they picked the gender and distroyed the fertilized girls.

Yes indeed the forum's mealy mouth democRats, progressives and marxists are all without sin and can chunk all the stones they want...right perverts.
I heard what the man said in the interview and for fruitcakes who probably did not listen to the interview to squeal like stuck pigs is pathetic. There was no malice, apology issued, case closed...or GFY.

The entire GOP is on the same page with Akin, who are they trying to kid? They believe zygotes have rights, but not women. It's all on tape.
