Given that couples can have unprotected sex for years without the woman coming up pregnant
(Did you know this idiot is on the HOUSE SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY COMMITTEE?? )
A 5% pregnancy result from rape does make pregnancy from rape rare.
Is that clear enough for you, or do I need to have a 5 year old explain it to you so you understand.
This guy is an idiot, but he is partially correct.
I will produce my source in a few minutes, I accidentally deleted it.
Crossroads GPS has removed its Senate race ads from the Missouri airwaves in the wake of controversial comments made by Republican nominee and U.S. Senate hopeful Rep. Todd Akin.
Politico first reported that Crossroads would pull its ads. The news comes the day after Akin, speaking about his position on abortion in a television interview, claimed that abortion in cases of rape was rarely an issue because “if it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”
The advocacy group had spent millions of dollars on ads in the state to help oust the incumbent, Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill, considered one of the most vulnerable incumbents this cycle. The group made a new buy just last week, CNN reported.

Troubles continued to mount for Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.) Monday afternoon when the head of the National Republican Senatorial Committee said it was time for him to reevaluate his campaign for Senate.
"Congressman Akin's statements were wrong, offensive, and indefensible," said Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), referring to the Missouri Senate candidate's comments that women who are victims of "legitimate rape" rarely become pregnant.
"I recognize that this is a difficult time for him, but over the next twenty-four hours, Congressman Akin should carefully consider what is best for him, his family, the Republican Party, and the values that he cares about and has fought for throughout his career in public service," added Cornyn. link
So Romney in @wmur intvu echoes Cornyn's "spend the next 24 hrs" line. Trying to not be heavy-handed, but also not...subtle
mpoindc MT @JoshMcElveen: Romney on Akin Senate bid- "he should spend 24 hours considering what will best help the country at this critical time"
DavidMDrucker .@rollcall can confirm: @NRSC's $5 mil MO TV reservation for fall will disappear if Akin doesn't drop.
mkraju Mitch McConnell: Akin's statements 'totally inexcusable' and 'wildly offensive' and he 'should take time' to reconsider candidacy
