"If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”Only Bad Girls who wanted it and dressed like sluts, asking for it get pregnant.
Sadly, the Right-Wing War on Women continues. Akin is stating mainstream conservative thought. In 2011 Tea Party and House Republicans vote en masse to change the definition of Rape to only be "legitimate" when it was "forcible". Because every conservative knows if the woman didn't die trying to fight off her attacker she wanted it.
But, Congressman Todd Akin has nothing to worry about in Missouri. Akin recently made the right-wing pilgrimmage to Chick-fil-A to demonstrate his worthiness to right-wing bigots. In fact, Todd Akin is staying in the Mo Senate Race and has a legitimate chance of winning unless Missouri female bodies have ways of shutting that whole thing down!
Todd Akin is a career Republican bureaucrat. He's been a US Congressman since 2001 and served in the Mo House from 1988-2000. So, it's been 25 years since Akin had to worry about his healthcare coverage or next paycheck.
Despite Akin's recent "some people say" Only Bad Girls who Wanted It Get Pregnant. He's also espoused other standard pillars of Right-Wing ideology:
"I have a very serious concern about erosion of states rights. Very serious concern of that, and this, reversing this decision might pull that balance back. I am, as I’ve mentioned, a strong conservative, I don’t think the federal government should be doing a whole lot of things that it’s doing and it may well be that a repeal of the 17th Amendment might tend to pull that back but I haven’t written any thesis on it or anything like that." State's Rights! Of course, Akin wants to disenfranchise voters. Todd Akin also thinks it's time "to take a second look" at "the Civil Rights Act and Voting Rights Act". State's Rights! Without taking the vote away from legitimate voters Republicans can't win elections!The Republican Party stands for nothing more than Oppression, Subjugation and Slavery. As Vice President Joe Biden correctly pointed out, the Republican Party wants to put "Y'all back in Chains..." It's just that "Y'all" the Republicans want to enslave includes more than just black people but every woman, poor and middle class person in America who doesn't kow-tow and genuflect to them and Plutocracy.
Todd Akin told reporters in Sedalia today that he isn't sure the federal government should be involved in the school lunch program. “Is it something the federal government should do? I answer it no. I think the federal government should be out of the education business.”
Akin made the statement outside the 60th annual Governor’s Ham Breakfast at the Missouri State Fair on the week many students are heading back to the classroom.
Because as Akin noted, "the right to food is a communist ideal." Just remember Akin doesn't have to worry about where his next meal is coming from as he's wined and dined by lobbyists, paid an enormous salary by Government and provided FREE Government Healthcare.
