It's unfortunate people jumped on Todd Akin so much for his comments. Unwanted pregnancies exist, just as miscarriages exist. Since women mourn miscarried fetuses they wanted to give birth to, who is to say miscarriages could not stem from their emotional rejection of an unborn fetus?

I never liked George Bush, but there was one interview of his I LOVED!!! People always said of him that despite his inability to speak well in public, that he was an intelligent "man." I never believed it until his interview with a British reporter who also doubted his intelligence. I can't remember her name, but she did her absolute best to embarrass him and make him look like a fool, but she failed so badly that Bush made her look the idiot. Having said that, I can't believe Bush never made this list!

I see nothing wrong with saying legitimate rape. I have heard so many women make false claims for attention... His Word chose was spot on... Granted I couldn't tell what he was saying about it rejecting a baby in a rape because the voice over kept talking instead of letting me hear what he said. It's as almost you want to tell me what to think without hearing it myself.
