    Okay, so first he says that in cases of "legitimate rape", or "legitimate cases of rape", the "female body has ways of shutting that whole thing down".  Meaning, if you're raped, you don't get pregnant from it.  At least if I'm following his... "reasoning".

    But NOW, it turns out that

    I had a number of people on my campaign that were children that had grown up that were conceived in rape. They were helping me in the campaign.
    I guess "legitimate rape" is all that effective as a contraceptive, huh?  Either that or AkinBot was accidentally running the MourdockBot software. That happens with beta releases sometimes, I'm told.

    /facepalm

    I'll believe corporations are people when one comes home from Afghanistan in a body bag.
