In case some of y'all haven't seen this:
GOP Senate Nominee: Victims of ‘Legitimate Rape’ Rarely Get Pregnant:Rep. Todd Akin (R-Mo.), the Republican nominee for Senate in Missouri, said he doesn’t support abortion even in cases of rape because victims of “legitimate rape” rarely get pregnant.
But it gets better! Apparently Rep. Akin sits on/heads the House Science and Technology Committee. Boggle at that for a moment, yeah.
So, there's a petition at LeftAction, addressed to John Boehner, to remove Akin from said committee. Here:http://www.leftaction.com/action/tell-boehner-remove-akin-science-committee
Please go sign it, and then boost the hell out of this. And if there's any other petitions -- maybe one to throw this guy into a shark-infested tank? -- let me know? Thanks.Copied from mickeym who has taste, class, and intelligence, unlike the clueless misogynists involved in this debacle.
