This is a political ideology. A woman’s body fights off pregnancy when she’s legitimately raped—not when it’s illegitimate; you know, when the rapist doesn’t file the proper paper work or get the right signatures?

“Oh I’m sorry. This rape isn’t legitimate. There’s no raised seal. Oh and you forgot to sign the back.” – Your body.

This is worse than the blatant misrepresentation that Paul Ryan pushed this weekend. This is worse than the fake outrage over Biden’s commentary. So much so that the Romney/Ryan campaign is trying to back away. The masses have cried out in outrage. Rep. Todd Akin claims he mispoke.
