Excellent article Mr. Elder; thank you. I would also like to add that the continued attention popular conservative 'hyper-media' information sources are spending on Mr. Akin is distracting.
'Rape' when used as a verb can be defined as to seize, take or carry off by force. This very definition can be used in describing our present administrations attempts on our American rights. Let's not let Mr. Akin's wine drip take priority over the burst wine barrel.
