GOP congressman: Akin's rape comments were 'partly right'

A Georgia Republican congressman said that former Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin, R, was "partly right" in asserting that victims of "legitimate rape" rarely become pregnant.

Rep. Phil Gingrey, R-Ga., a former obstetrician-gynecologist, said at a town hall meeting that Akin was “partly right” in his controversial suggestion, which was widely cited as a factor in his loss to Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill, D, this past November.

Gingrey said, according to the Marietta Daily Journal:

“And in Missouri, Todd Akin … was asked by a local news source about rape and he said, ‘Look, in a legitimate rape situation’ — and what he meant by legitimate rape was just look, someone can say I was raped: a scared-to-death 15-year-old that becomes impregnated by her boyfriend and then has to tell her parents, that’s pretty tough and might on some occasion say, ‘Hey, I was raped.’ That’s what he meant when he said legitimate rape versus non-legitimate rape. I don’t find anything so horrible about that. But then he went on and said that in a situation of rape, of a legitimate rape, a woman’s body has a way of shutting down so the pregnancy would not occur. He’s partly right on that.”

7. Sadly, yes...

He received a bachelor's degree in Chemistry from Georgia Tech in 1965, and then attended Medical College of Georgia. He then worked as an obstetrician

He also serves on the Subcommittee on Health

5. In addition to be being medically & scientifically idiotic, its important to note WHY he is saying

This;

Namely, to reiterate why the 15 yr. old girl should not be "allowed" to decide herself whether or not to remain pregnant. To ensure she is "punished" with pregnancy, because her sex was voluntary.

Fuck you, bub.

6. Being partly wrong for Aiken is like being only a little pregnant

Nope. He's wrong. Period.

9. If his license to be a OB-GYN doctor is still active

it's a travesty. And it needs to be stripped tomorrow.
