I would be really, really, REALLY happy to not hear Republicans use the word "rape" again anytime soon, regardless of the context.

Well if he's still ahead in the polls I guess many people agree with him. He also recently said that Claire McCaskill used to be more "ladylike". So the govt sticking its nose into pregnancy and rape and ladyparts is fine and won't get us into huge trouble? Let me write that down...

Huffington Post

Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.), the Senate candidate that drew criticism in August after making the inaccurate claim that the victims of "legitimate rape" can force their bodies to avoid pregnancy, also believes it's fair for employers to pay women less than men.

"I believe in free enterprise. I don't think the government should be telling people what you pay and what you don't pay," Akin said at a town hall meeting on Thursday. The comment came in response to a question about Akin's decision to vote against the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009, which has made it it easier for women to challenge unequal pay.

"I think it's about freedom," Akin added. "If somebody wants to hire somebody and they agree on a salary, that's fine, however it wants to work. So, the government sticking its nose into all kinds of things has gotten us into huge trouble."

Closing the female pay gap has proved difficult in recent decades. In the second quarter of 2012, the median female worker's earnings amounted to just 80 percent of the median male worker's earnings, according to the Labor Department, not much more than the 75 percent they earned in 1989, according to a separate study.

Though women more often work in lower-paying industries than men, some employers have been found to pay women less for equal work. Female chief executives earn roughly 72 percent of what their male counterparts make.

Akin has stayed in the Senate race in spite of calls from a number of Republican politicians to bow out. He currently leads his opposition, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), by one percentage point, according to the latest poll. McCaskill recently released the video of Akin's remarks on female pay.

What Akin does -- like,say, Temt Lott's comments from a few years back about segregation -- I that he speaks out loud what liberals imagine conservatives say to one another behind closes doors.

His position sincerely seems to be, "Americans should be free to discriminate against women."

Paul Ryan also voted against the Ledbetter act, as did numerous other Republicans

if we don't, then that's like saying gender doesn't exist.

Not only is his knowledge of biology lousy, but so is his spelling.

It's time for another round of "GOP Politicians Being Offensively Stupid and Not Knowing About Women's Health Issues!" Today we have the esteemed Joe Walsh of Illinois weighing in:

Congressman says abortions never necessary to save life of mother | The Ticket - Yahoo! News

You know, it's one thing to be pro-life, that position in and of itself does have some merit. But for cripes' sake, what in the hell kind of schools did these people go to to get this kind of moronic, ignorant thinking?

Also, can we please, please, PLEASE, for the love of God, get some female politicians weighing in on this issue already?

But we're too emotional to rationalize a situation. Our menstrual cycles prevent us from thinking properly, and its even worse when we go through menopause. C'mon, Angela. Don't you realize a woman's limitations?

I always seem to forget, I guess. Silly me, thinking we should have a say in something that directly affects us.

Plus, a female politician who was speaking on this issue in Michigan was told to stop because she dared utter the word "vagina", so if we can't even get that far, then I guess I shouldn't expect anything further with that.

(I do love how these politicians who think they can make all these laws on this sort of topic can't seem to handle hearing a woman say the word "vagina". You're legislating something you don't want discussed in public? Okay.)

Just another troglodyte. The simplest example are ectopic pregnancies which are not rare. One almost killed my mother on her 3rd pregnancy.

It's shocking that people in this day and age can be that ignorant.

I was just talking about this with my father. We're both pretty ignorant on the specifics of this situation, so could someone give an example as to a situation where an abortion would be necessary to save the life of the mother?
