American Family Association Executive Director Bryan Fischer, on Tuesday, made a comparison between Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO) and a rape victim on his radio show (video below), reports RightWingWatch.org.
Fischer said: “Everybody is gang tackling Todd Akin. Now you can talk about a forcible situation, you talk about somebody being a victim of forcible assault, that would be Todd Akin."
Over the weekend, Rep. Akin claimed that victims of “legitimate rape” would not become pregnant because “the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”
Rep. Akin apologized for his comments, which he blamed on "medical reports." He is running against Democrat U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill for her seat in November.
