(TW: rape) You know another part that really gets me about this whole Todd Akin “You physically can’t get pregnant from rape” thing? HE IS ON THE SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY COMMITTEE in the House. Along with this whole thing being generally fucking terrible, the irony of this aspect is almost too much to handle. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) has created a petition calling on Speaker of the House John Boehner to remove Rep. Todd Akin from the House Science and Technology committee. Sign it here. Hopefully this is just the beginning.
