By the way, have to add that this is NOT a comment by "Republicans", nor any "war on women"; it's a comment by ONE GUY, that clearly has no brain, or, apparently, access to any valid data. Nor does anyone on the right support his idiotic comment.
When the Republican Senate candidate who said "legitimate rape" rarely resulted in pregnancy canceled plans to appear on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight," the CNN chat show host did not hurriedly book another guest for his Monday night show.
Instead, the program turned its cameras on an empty chair.
"Congressman," the CNN host addressed Rep. Todd Akin, a Missouri Republican, "you have an open invitation to join me in that chair whenever you feel up to it.
"If you don't keep your promise to appear on the show, then you are what we would call in Britain a gutless little twerp."

Lady Dolphins can do that. They have a muscles behind the pleasurehole to shut out semen. Maybe if we genetically splice women with dolphins...edit on 21-8-2012 by Cassius666 because: (no reason given)
and with that statement, your avatar makes a great deal of sense
what was wrong with what the guy said?? he wants to force, with the penalty of imprisonment, 32,101 women to give birth to their rapists child....and you're confused?...my self-censured vulgarities does not permit me to answer your last question
and let's take his 5% number, that means 32,101 times 20 = 642, 200 rapes, but of course you don't see what all the commotion is, and why women would be upset...because according to you...they recieve all of these privledges, and special treatments.

What next, euthanize the handicapped?
As a matter of fact, remember those bureaucratic payment advisory boards in Obamacare....the same people who advocate abortion also advocate government bureaucrats advising people on decisions regarding death. It is diiabolical and many people think it's for their own good.

What was so wrong with what this guy said?
Obviously, that makes him misinformed, but why is he taking so much flack over this?
Todd Akin has an agenda. He wants to make abortion illegal. ALL abortion, even in the case of rape. So, he's suggesting that women who actually get raped (legitimately) won't get pregnant, so it follows that if a woman gets pregnant, and says she was raped, she's lying. Because women who are legitimately raped, don't get pregnant. Therefore, anyone who gets pregnant and "claims" they got raped, is lying, and should be forced to carry the baby to term.
But as the study you posted states, there are thousands of women who get pregnant from rape every year. He would force them all to bring the child to term.
He is an idiot with power. The most dangerous kind.
