Female body has means to avoid pregnancy resulting from rape

This were the words Todd Akin spoke when defending the end of legal abortion, even for women which got pregnant as a result of being raped.

Could this be the kind of man that rules the United States of America? Akin is a Republican currently leading Sen. Claire McCaskill, a Democrat, by 8 points.

“First of all, from what I understand from doctors [pregnancy from rape] is really rare” – yeah right, tell that to the estimated 32,000 pregnancies from rape in a given year according to this study.
“If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down”, that’s why raped men don’t get pregnant, right?
