Heated discussions erupted last week after American politician Todd Akin made a speech where he stated "If it is legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try and shut that whole thing down". This man clearly doesn't understand the workings of the human body, and if he cannot understand the basics that are taught in schools, why is he running to be a Republican senate in Missouri?
He isn't the only man to be wrong about the workings of the female body, as this simple illustration shows (found via Twitter). Noteworthy quotes are DR. Robert Dobbins who states that 'women are not fertile during assault...' and DR. John Willke who believes that women cannot become pregnant after rape because the '..tubes are spastic'. Where do these men get their qualifications? Why are they allowed to practice?
