One would think Republican representative Todd Akin, infamous for his oft-offensive anti women and anti gay comments would think twice about making his trademark statements after all the lashing he gets. But this statement actually is from a 2008 video of his that has just started making rounds, and has catapulted him in internet fame again.
The guy is really coming from somewhere no one can relate to! Just when the world was racking their brains over the science behind a woman ‘shutting up her system’ from getting pregnant while being ‘legitimately’ raped, another one of Akin’s biology defying statement from history emerges. Now we can add wondering how doctors manage to give abortions to women who aren’t even pregnant to our list of Akinology!
Women aren’t the only victims of Akin’s biology defying beliefs; homosexuals and same sex marriages are also on his list of objectionable things. He opposes homosexuality as a civil right to be protected and promoted by the government. Akin says, “Anybody who knows something about the history of the human race knows that there is no civilization which has condoned homosexual marriage widely and openly that has long survived.”
And oh, “at the heart of liberalism, really is the hatred of God,” Akin feels.
Ann Coulter said it all when she called him a ‘selfish Swine Todd Akin.’
As for his recently surfaced comment on abortion of non-pregnant women, Twitter is abuzz and rightfully so:

Republicans are walking on thin ice as it is. According to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll, 52 percent of self-described moderates view the Democratic Party favorably, as compared to just 35 percent who view the Republican Party with favor. They don’t honestly need any more antics of the kind to weigh them down with elections right around the corner.
