If you haven't heard by now, this will shock you.

Republican Congressman Todd Akin claimed this weekend that victims of "legitimate rape" don't get pregnant, because, "If it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down."

In the 112th Congress, Akin sits on the House Science Committee. That's right, this is the man that Speaker Boehner and the Republican party have chosen to lead our nation's science policy. We must stand against the Republicans' continued utter disregard and disrespect for women.

Please donate $X or more right now to defeat anti-women Republicans [url]

During the past year, Akin has joined Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan and the House Republican majority in co-sponsoring bills to re-define rape, defund Planned Parenthood, and pass a Federal 'Personhood' Amendment.

Please help us elect a Democratic majority who will stop the Republican assault on Women's health.

This is beyond the pale. Republican Congressman Todd Akin told a local television station yesterday that victims of "legitimate rape" don't get pregnant.

In his words, "If it's legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down."

Tell Speaker Boehner to immediately denounce Akin's outrageous "legitimate rape" statement and remove Akin from the House Science Committee



This isn't just an isolated statement. Akin was a co-sponsor of the "Let Women Die" bill that would redefine rape to so-called "forcible rape" to deny women access to health care. And now, Akin wants to head to the Senate to push his extreme anti-woman agenda.

We have to stand up against Akin immediately please add your name:
