As a prosecutor, I argued hundreds of rape cases—held survivors' hands, cried with them, and fought tooth and nail for justice.

So when my opponent, Todd Akin, said that survivors of “legitimate” rape can't get pregnant because “the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down,” it made me sick to my stomach.

While Akin's financiers publicly condemn him, the national Republican Party and Karl Rove still have $X.8 million in ad time reserved to support him. And, polls show that Akin still has a real chance of becoming a U.S. Senator—the race is a dead heat.

We need to seize this opportunity to reveal the GOP's true plans for rape and choice. If we don't do everything possible to defeat Todd Akin and the radical Republican agenda, we will deeply regret it. Click here to donate $X and make sure Todd Akin's revolting agenda never gets to the Senate.

Paul Ryan called Akin a “great asset” while the two fought to bar pregnant rape survivors from the right to choose, and now Romney's campaign refuses to talk about abortion in news interviews. But just because the extreme voting record of Romney's running mate creates a political liability doesn't mean Romney can ignore the rights of half of our nation.

This isn't about politics. This is about real rape survivors who would lose the right to choose if Republicans take over government and implement their agenda.

We need to do everything we can, right now, to make sure Akin doesn't become a U.S. Senator. Please make a contribution to defeat his radical agenda: [url]

Thanks for standing with me,
