Are you sitting down?
Todd Akin thinks that the female body can shut down pregnancy in the case of "legitimate rape." I wish I were making this up — read exactly what he said this morning:
It's not news that Akin thinks all abortion should be illegal — but his archaic, ill-informed justification is so incredibly offensive that I had to share it with you.
Akin's record is riddled with policies and votes that hurt women. He thinks many forms of contraception — including the pill — should be illegal and voted against equal pay for equal work.
Together, we can make sure that Missouri has a Senator who has a proven track record of fighting for women.
