Akin: Beware ‘Terrorist’ Abortionists

So much for bouncing back from “legitimate rape.” The skeletons in Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin’s closet came back to haunt him Wednesday when a 2008 a video of him railing against “terrorist” abortion doctors and suggesting that it was “common practice” for these evil, evil physicians to be “giving abortions to women who are not actually pregnant.” Akin’s critics were recirculating the video on the Internet Wednesday while he raised money in Washington for his campaign against incumbent Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill. In the same speech, Akin said abortion was more “un-American” than slavery. Akin caused a firestorm in August when he said a woman would not get pregnant after a “legitimate rape.”
