GOP candidate Todd Akin: “What are these ‘birds and bees’ you speak of?”
Todd Akin is Missouri’s Republican (make that teatard) nominee for the U.S. Senate. He’s already (in)famous for being against the school lunch program, wanting to ban the morning after pill, and describing student loans as “stage three cancer of socialism.”
And on top of all that, it seems Todd Akin never received a certain, uh, “lecture” — “son, let’s have a little talk” — that most people are given sometime around sixth grade.
Todd Akin may not understand how fetuses are made, but he worships them unconditionally. He wants to ban abortion, period. No exceptions. There should be no exception for rape because if a woman was “genuinely” raped — as opposed to asking for it — then she can’t possibly get pregnant. Because, you know, she has some sort of inner mechanism “down there” that would prevent conception if she had been genuinely raped.
Anyway, straight from the horse’s ass’s mouth:
“People always try to make that one of those things, ‘Oh, how do you slice this particularly tough sort of ethical question.’ It seems to me, first of all, what I understand from doctors is that’s really where—if it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”
He heard that from a doctor????
And that’s not all:
“Let’s assume that maybe that didn’t work, or something. I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be on the rapist and not attacking the child.”
Missouri voters: you can NOT possibly send this bone-stupid inbred mouth-breather to the U.S. Senate.
