Shame on you for jumping on Todd Akin for his politically unwise statements, but ignoring the main point he was trying to make; his objection to taking the life of the most innocent of all involved in a rape-pregnancy, the unborn child!
Why is everybody ignoring that and focusing on the side issue? (Would the rape victim have the same abhorrence for the living children of the rapist, I wonder?)
The wrongness of executing the unborn child (especially when so many of those who are screaming the loudest oppose capitol punishment!) is what should be the main focus of the discussion, not the side issues.
Especially when it’s not clear that he was wrong in what he said. He stated that he had been told by doctors that there is a mechanism...
