If you want to prevent rape pregnancies, then prevent rapes (any woman who conceived from forced sex would prefer the crime never happened rather than an abortion) -- yet preventing sex abuse is exactly what the soft-on-crime while easy-on-degenerate-entertainment leftists refuse to do.  As for Todd Akin, he must never have heard of the Elisabeth Fritzl case -- the girl held captive and raped repeatedly by her father who conceived and birthed seven children from the attacks, and perhaps more were conceived but died in utero due to defects related to incest.  But it does no good to demonize Akin -- he may just be gullible, not a misogynist.  The point is that no truly civilized society executes children for the crimes of their fathers.
