Republican Party is anti-science

Last Modified: Monday, August 27, 2012 at 7:52 a.m.

Recent events have caused speculation that the current Republican Party is anti-science.

For a nation that values its traditional science and technology edge over most of the rest of the world, it is somewhat astonishing that so many Republican politicians treat science as unproven theory or disregard it completely.

When Rep. Todd Akin, R-Mo., made his now-infamous remark that women who are victims of "legitimate rape" won't get pregnant, it was immediately noted that Akin, who is running for a Senate seat, is a member of the House Science and Technology Committee.

Akin, who is firmly against abortion for any reason, apologized for his appalling lack of knowledge about biology, but he immediately got $100,000 in campaign donations from sympathetic Republicans
