Todd Akin: ‘Medical Report’ Told Me Rape Victims Reject Pregnancy

Todd Akin said unspecified “medical reports” were responsible for his claim that women are unlikely to get pregnant from rape, but that he has since changed his mind. 

“Well, my only point in that was I had heard from medical reports that rape is such a traumatic type of thing that there’s a reaction,” Akin told Sean Hannity Monday on his radio program. “But that’s wrong and thats the second thing I’ve apologized for. When you look at it, rape is just rape, it’s horrible, and it’s abhorrent to me.”
