    Not me. My Rep's Todd Akin. But yeah I know what you mean. Congress has a single digit approval rating in some polls, but almost all of the incumbents running are re-elected year after year.
    There should be Instant Runoff Voting

    True, but Ryan is smarter than Akin--he believes that storks deliver to rape victims as well.

    I think the republican party should get a fund raiser together to send this guy to some remedial middle school biology and health classes.

    Abstinence only, of course.

    Which would still teach them that pregnancies sometimes result from sex.

    Re: Missouri Republican claims 'legitimate rape' rarely results in pregnancy[W:137]

    I don't know if anyone heard the NPR coverage of it, but it essentially said Atkin still has a slight shot at winning the senate race(due to the low popularity of his opponent). Even after his comments, and even when prominent members of his party(Paul Ryan included) are telling him to step down, this guy might win...

    Obviously this is a hilariously stupid thing to say, but my question is, if the female body "has ways to try to shut that whole thing down" (that whole thing being pregnancy), isn't the female body performing a de facto natural abortion? Wouldn't that be equally criminal from his perspective?

    The mind boggles...

    I dont think you can abort a fetus until it is actually concieved. Prior to that it is not a human life. Therefore prior to that you are not killing a human life. It only becomes teh destruction of a human life once conception takes place.

    Sure, but is he saying "shut that whole thing down" meaning prevent an egg from being fertilized, or "shut that whole thing down" meaning shut down an incipient pregnancy?

    To be clear, it really doesn't matter. I was just making a joke about an obviously ridiculous statement.

    He's right, it rarely does result in pregnancy.
