GOP Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin weighed in with a horrifically stupid explanation of "legitimate rape" during a St. Louis radio interview. He should resign from the race and put someone in who has a brain and an education.
“It seems to me, from what I understand from doctors, that’s really rare,” Mr. Akin said of pregnancies from rape. “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. But let’s assume that maybe that didn’t work or something: I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be of the rapist, and not attacking the child.”
