Akin says Women can Self-Prevent Pregnancy when Raped

Missouri Republican Congressman says women can shut down their body in the case of ‘legitimate rape’ suggesting women can prevent themselves from getting pregnant when raped.

Here is Akin’s full quote to St. Louis TV station KTVI:

“It seems to me first of all from what I understand from doctors that’s really rare. If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”

Between this and Romney’s remark about having to put a windmill on the top of a car to to go green I’m starting to wonder why I ever voted for a Republican.

Anyone in Missouri want to start an impeach Akin movement?
