I believe this extreme-right congressman was implying that women will attempt to get a legal abortion by claiming rape.
I know, this makes no sense. Why lie to get a perfectly legal medical procedure? You see, the Christian-right won't acknowledge that abortions are a legal and often necessary medical procedure. They want to cast doctors and their female patients in this gross negative light by implying that trashy women will lie to get an abortion.
This disgusting congressman was also letting a little secret out of the bag. There are documented far-right position papers claiming that women, during a rape, secrete a fluid that kills sperm. That is what they actually believe and tell each other in their meetings. Ergo, if a 'rape victim' gets pregnant she must have liked it--in their twisted minds.
Facts: All women secret a fluid in their vagina that can kill sperm during sex. However, in the male pre-ejeculte there is a neutralizing enzyme.
And that's where babies come from...
we should have a contest to see who can most closely predict the time he drops out today.

In fact, "statutory rape" may be consentual in fact, and the non-consent is only a legal definition.
I'm not going to defend his pro-life stance being that I am vehemently pro-choice. RATHER, the supposed SHOCK! at what he said is just media OMG!!!!ing is tiresome. I see this as another Chic-A-Fila DIVERSION to emotions. All this was known about Akin's before his statement as it was known he is a no-exceptions "pro-lifer."
My main function as a Christian is to be the biggest possible jerk as a demonstration of the awe found in God's Grace and Forgiveness. (That love part comes in to play at some point)

i'm not sure how he can stay in.
If he stays in, he's toast. Just ask Santorum how well his stance on "Babies from rape are a gift from God" helped him get the Presidential nomination.
