It was NO SECRET that he opposed abortion in the event of rape - so there is no real shocker in his statement OTHER THAN his attempting to trivialize rape-pregnancies - that DO happen. OFTEN. Whether this is statistically the same, higher or lower than consentual sex is an irrelevancy in my opinion.

    I do NOT have a problem with his usage of "legitimate rape" - though not the best choice, but he likely meant he was not including statutory rape (consentual sex but the female is underage).

    I AM TIRED OF THE EXTREME DEMANDS FOR POLITICAL CORRECTNESS!!! I intensely disagree with his view on abortion, but then that was all known BEFORE his statement. There were NO surprises about him in what he said. He was a no exceptions anti-abortion before his statement.

    IF I were him I wouldn't drop out. He'll never have another political chance in his life and Missouri is an odd state where in at some point voters might get tired of the rabid raging against him. He has no other game left to play politically. This election is the only game he still has to ever play.

    The EXTREME demand for correctness and perfect or the media does its OMG!!!!! thing - is resulting in politicians who will ONLY talk to a teleprompter with speeches written by professionals and just chanting pre-written talking points developed by using study groups.
    You know, people getting in an uproar is democracy at work.

    Fine, he should stay in the race, and anyone offended by what he said can not vote for him. After he loses badly because every non-legitimate rapist in MO, maybe the Tea Partiers will learn.

    Statutory raps is not consensual. And the victim can also be a boy.

    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...

    I definitely agree a sexual assault can be against a boy, but not an assault that can result in pregnancy.
    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."

    He's not dropping out any time soon. His neck of the woods still believes women who are raped are at fault for allowing it to happen.
    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)

    he's down ten million dollars.

    O'Donnell: Akin's comment cost him $10 million - CBS News

    i'm not sure how he can stay in.

    And his cohorts in Tampa are drawing up a Republican platform that includes a anti-abortion plank that does not exclude abortion due to rape or incest. People might as wel face it, Akins is just a mainstream Republican now. Why should he drop out? Because he let the cat out of the bag?

    Biden wasn't joking, neither.

    But hey, he apologized, admitted that it was a stupid thing to say. Give it a rest.

    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.
