A New Kind of Lie Detector

August 22, 2012

According to Missouri Rep. Todd Akin, a woman who is raped would probably not need an abortion, because (as he understands it) the trauma causes her body to prevent conception.

If this were true, it could add a whole new dimension to rape trials.

I can see the court case now: “No, the sex was not consensual, and I can prove it. I’m not pregnant!”

Other than being a total jerk, how could he be so clueless about basic human biology? HE wants to be elected so he can help decide where tax dollars for science are going?
