The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.
An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.
Akin's interest in the idea of stressors reducing the incidence of rape related pregnancy, is to minimize it in order to remove the rape and incest exceptions to abortion. It's a tenuous correlation at best. IMO.

Here's another site of misinformation that Akin merely reflects:
Facts of Life: Chapter 3: Exceptions for Abortion: The Frequency of Rape-Caused Pregnancies
Here's a quote from this site:
They [pro-choice researchers] quote figures from rape crisis centers and other pro-abortion organizations that have done unscientific 'surveys' or 'studies' of women who have given reasons for wanting to get abortions. As described elsewhere in this Chapter, the women who obtain abortions for 'rape' are almost always lying. The rape crisis centers take the numbers (that are already inflated from working with rape victims) and apply them to the total female population, thereby obviously greatly skewing the results.
