McCaskill Calls Akin’s Rape Comments ‘Beyond Comprehension’

Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill (D) said in a statement Sunday that comments made by her Republican opponent Rep. Todd Akin about “legitimate rape” were “beyond comprehension”:

“It is beyond comprehension that someone can be so ignorant about the emotional and physical trauma brought on by rape,” said McCaskill. “The ideas that Todd Akin has expressed about the serious crime of rape and the impact on its victims are offensive.”
