“Legitimate rape.” Every since Senate-hopeful Tod Akin (R-MO) said those infamous words, the media and people all over have blown up. When Akin claimed that women’s body “shut down during rape,” he mentioned that this information was from doctors. That had me wondering from that very moment… either Akin’s was flat out lying, or there is some quack out there. Come to find out that it’s neither.
It is time for a reminder on which states and what they’re doing against women and their reproductive rights. The War Against Women erupted practically overnight earlier this year and millions of people, both women and men, stood their ground against the far right wing’s bills and laws which heavily undermine a woman’s right to making her own decisions about her reproduction and abortion. The War has quieted as far as the front-running news, but it most certainly has not been forgotten by women all over the country. So, with this year’s presidential election only three months away, it is time to remind everyone what is going on with the War Against Women and the war’s relationship to Romney.
