A Canard That Will Not Die: 'Legitimate Rape' Doesn't Cause Pregnancy - Garance Franke-Ruta - The Atlantic
Since we now have a state constitutional mandate allowing kids to skip out on science classes because of “religious reasons”, it seems Akin wants to take it a step further and teach sex ed through the media. Do tell, Professor Akin, how it is that the female body “shuts that whole thing down”? And, while you’re at it, can you define “legitimate rape” for me?
My guess is, just like all the small-minded fearmongers, you can’t, because your beliefs are all based in fiction. What’s next? Shall I be put to the stake for having red hair, which clearly means that I’m a witch?
Oh, if only I were a witch, Akin. If only.
