I’m not sure. Well… actually, she seemed like she really meant it. Right then, blocking all reproductive operations now!”
Is this the state of the American education system? That a man his age has nfi how the human body works? Or did he completely skive off during the human biology bits? Does he also think that virgins can’t get pregnant when they have sex for the first time?

“It seems to me, from what I understand from doctors, that’s really rare,” Akin said, referring to conception following a rape. “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. But let’s assume that maybe that didn’t work or something, I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be of the rapist, and not attacking the child.”
