To Rep. Akin,
I saw what you said about "legitimate" rape not causing pregnancy. By now you've been told you're wrong. You've been told that about 32,000 women become pregnant as the result of rape each year. You've been told just how stunning your ignorance is to the rest of us.I doubt that you'll let the facts change your dangerous ideology, so here are a few other things you should know.It's horrifying to label some rapes not "legitimate." Your comment shows just how little compassion you have for the millions of survivors of rape and sexual assault in Missouri and nationwide.Nobody with your cruel and deeply offensive views belongs in the Senate. Now that you've shown your true colors, you can bet that millions of us, in Missouri and beyond, are going to do whatever it takes to keep you out of power. You, and everyone who shares your desire to prevent women from making their own private medical decisions. Our anger is legitimate, and so are our votes.
