Todd Akin Admits His Rape Comment 'Was Medically Wrong'

Filed under: TV NewsWacky, Tacky & TruePolitik

Sure, it took the guy a public scandal that may cost him and the Republican party a seat in the Senate, but Todd Akin has finally acknowledged that women can not "shut that whole thing down" while being legitimately raped.

Commenting on the issue of abortion — specifically for women impregnated by a rapist — the Missouri Congressman suggested that "doctors" have proven that a woman's uterus will magically turn off during non-consensual sex.

He's apologized for his thoughtless comments, but instead of confirming or denying whether or not he actually BELIEVED the medical miracle he was describing, he simply said he "misspoke."

During an interview with George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America today (above), the politician finally acknowledged

Watch Kirk Cameron Weigh In On Todd Akin And 'Legitimate Rape'

Filed under: TV NewsMedia MinutePolitik

If you haven't been living under a rock…or a place with no access to the internet, newspapers or television, then you already know all about Rep. Todd Akin's views on "legitimate rape" and abortion.

In case you're just tuning in, the Congressman is currently running for Missouri's Senate seat and went on television to declare that — from what he understands "from doctors" — it's really rare for a woman to get pregnant after being raped.

Ya see, as long as it's "legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down."

While it sounds like he watched the movie Teeth a few too many times or maybe thinks the female uterus is armed with booby traps that eliminate any trespassing sperm, it turns out he simply "misspoke."

But now, it's someone else's turn to put their two cents in on the issue. Check out the video (above) to watch Kirk Cameron shared with CNN his DEFENSE of the controversial politician.

It's nice to know that Kirk Cameron doesn't believe there is "any kind of okay rape," but a little disappointing that he couldn't take the subject anywhere past his theologically-inspired views on abortion. At least he didn't bash the gays this time!

Piers Morgan Calls Todd Akin 'Gutless Little Twerp' For Last Minute Interview Cancellation

Filed under: TV NewsMedia MinutePolitikPiers Morgan

Piers Morgan was not happy on Monday night.

Missouri Rep. Todd Akin was SUPPOSED to be be interviewed by the Brit on Piers Morgan Tonight, but proceeded to bail last minute!

So last minute, in fact, that the only subject the CNN host was left to talk to was an empty chair.

The Republican is under fire for his televised comments regarding "legitimate rape" and a woman's ability to "shut that whole thing down," which was reference to the female body's reproductive organs.

Since Morgan kept his word to appear across the table from the Congressman, he was more than a little peeved that Akin did not keep his and had some choice words for the politician (above).

Before calling his would-be interview subject a "gutless little twerp" for canceling his appearance, the talk show host asked

Missouri Rep. Todd Akin Backpedals After Claiming 'Legitimate Rape' Doesn't Result In Pregnancy

Filed under: Icky Icky PooOops!Media MinutePolitik

Ugh.

Missouri Rep. Todd Akin, who is not a medical doctor nor a woman, went on the Jaco Report on Sunday to give his very inneresting and ridiculous thoughts on rape and pregnancy.

Whilst discussing the controversial topic of abortion on the St. Louis broadcast, Akin claimed:

"First of all, from what I understand from doctors [pregnancy from rape] is really rare. If it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down."

First of all, what constitutes as a "legitimate rape?" Secondly, according to statistics from Journal of American Obstetrics and Gynecology, over 30,000 pregnancies result from rape every year and is something that occurs with "significant frequency."

Apparently, Mr. Akin hasn't read any
