Rep. Todd "Legitimate Rape" Akin Stays in U.S. Senate Race

| | Comments (2) | TrackBacks (0)

Todd_Akin_portrait_275.jpgYesterday was a big day for anti-choice extremist Rep. Todd Akin, the candidate for U.S. Senate who said that pregnancies from "legitimate rape" rarely happen.

September 25 was the official deadline for Akin to drop out of the race for U.S. Senate. Many Republican leaders, including Mitt Romney, publicly called on Akin to step aside.

However, the deadline has come and gone. And Akin is still in the race!

Now it's up to us to get the word out to Missouri voters about Akin's extreme beliefs.

If his comments about "legitimate rape" weren't offensive enough, he also said that he believes that emergency contraception should be banned.

If you have friends who vote in Missouri, get the word out. Tell them to cast their vote to re-elect Sen. Claire McCaskill. Akin cannot be trusted to protect our rights - let alone understand basic biology.
