Mr. Akin did not make an awkward comment: he told us accidentally what he really thinks, and it is ugly. He is in sync with all the ugly humankind-hating bible thumping, Islamic extremists, and all other fanatical bigots of any ilk.

In this book Todd Akin continues to wallow in his sin of pride. Showing that he learned nothing by the implosion of his campaign, which cost his party a senate seat, he comes out with all guns blazing. His comments on pregnancy and rape were a coward's response to a question - should rape victims be able to get abortions or not? Rather than saying what he really believes - that all life is precious and that we shouldn't hold the way one was conceived against an innocent baby in the womb - a defensible if politically unpopular position - Akin tried to dodge the question by arguing that raped women don't get pregnant. When he was called on this comment - clearly raped women get pregnant all the time - he offered a half-hearted apology which he is now taking back in the pages of his book. He has no thought for the pain of victims of rape - all that matters to him is his unchristian pride. The book is full of it - he casts himself as the victim in every page, never taking responsibility for his own actions as Christ asks of us.
Todd Akin and people like him do more damage to the church than they can possibly imagine. But even if he understood it, there is no indication here that he would change his ways. None of what he does is to honor Christ, it's all to honor himself. As he says he will not be running for anything again (a moot point, as there's almost nothing he could get elected to), this book is mostly a parting shot to say 'I was right'. No, sir, you were wrong. One day Christ will ask you about your words. I hope you have something better to say to him than what you have said in this book.

When the author creates a new word to describe physical violence thinking people aspire to distance themselves from him. He explains that he does not know what he is talking about and loses the election. Then he complains that people he knows distance themselves from him because he does not know what he is talking about.

A computer mistake at the end means his campaign workers get no severance pay and he owes $ to venders. Quality work if ever there was any. Too bad he is not still on the government payroll serving the people of the United States of America. (Not).

William Todd Akin (born 1947) was born in New York City, NY, and grew up in the Greater St. Louis, MO, area. After receiving his bachelor’s degree from Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Massachusetts, and serving in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Akin worked in the private sector in the computer and steel industries. In 1988, he was elected to the Missouri House of Representatives, where he served until 2000, when he was elected to the United States House of Representatives, in which he served Missouri’s 2nd congressional district until 2013. Todd and his wife Lulli homeschooled their children in St. Louis County, where we lived from 2002 to 2008. Their daughters played homeschool volleyball with our older son. I worked with both Todd and Lulli when arranging speakers for the Greater St. Louis Area Home Educators Expo. Though he was never our Congressman, our family for several years helped to set up the annual Independence Day celebration picnic at his home. I know Todd Akin personally and hold him in the highest esteem.

In 2012, Akin ran for U. S. Senate against the incumbent Democrat Claire McCaskill. After winning a crowded Republican primary, he made some injudicious remarks on a taped television program discussion when asked about abortion and his opposition to exceptions for rape. These remarks were misunderstood, and people jumped all over them to misrepresent what he believes. He apologized for his incautious wording and explained what he really meant, but the damage was done. Not only did the Democrats savagely attack him, but many of his fellow Republicans also turned on him and demanded that he withdraw from the race, which he refused to do.

The book was boring, but I read it anyway. I wanted to get his side of the story and how his alleged party bosses were against him. The idiot still has no clue. They wanted him to drop out because he could not win yet, which they were correct in their prediction.

A slip of the tongue? What Akin tried to say -- so he claims -- is that there is a difference between a woman who WAS raped and got pregnant, and a woman who falsely claimed she was raped and got pregnant.

The former has an unwanted pregnancy violently imposed; the latter is a liar. So if a woman shows up at Planned Parenthood clinic, who is to say her rape claim is real or not? Akin, or the woman and a police report? News for Akin: ia pregnant rape victim's body does not "shut down." The sperm can indeed find the egg, and is on they way to becoming a fetus.

Akin earnestly apologized for his remarks on video during the campaign. Well, he is recanting his apology two years later. The Missouri Republican now insists that he always believed in what he said regarding "legitimate rape" and is convinced that the media, Democrats, and Republicans such as Mitt Romney all decided to persecute him because he is a good, Christian, patriotic man. Ah yes, that grand conspiracy against right wing Christians -- that explains everything! Akin now claims in FB that the incident was all part of a "spiritual war" between good and evil. Akin was on the side of "good," in case you didn't figure that out. In mid-July, 2014, Akin told David Brody of the Christian Broadcasting Network that the uproar over his comments was really "part of a spiritual war," instead of a political campaign that galvanized many Missouri women voters.

And on the record, Akin remains an outspoken opponent of abortion IN ALL CASES, including health reasons or in cases of rape or incest. He also opposes embryonic stem cell research.
