Dumbass who is Missouri’s Republican Senate Candidate: Ban morning-after pill

Republican Rep. Todd Akin, who is running for Senate in Missouri, on Wednesday said that emergency contraceptive pills should be outlawed.
“As far as I’m concerned, the morning-after pill is a form of abortion,” he told KCMO’s Greg Knapp, “and I think we shouldn’t have abortion in this country.”
Akin suggested there should be no exceptions for rape or incest. When it came the mother’s health, doctors should try to “optimize life.”
“The life of the mother, the situation there is one where I think what you want to do is optimize life,” Akin said. “You try to save the mother’s life, you try to save the child. There are certain things like, you know, you get a tubal pregnancy where the child has absolutely no chance of surviving, then you do the best you can to save the mother’s life.”

"Do the best you can …"

I can’t stress enough how much of a disaster it would be if this guy gets into the Senate. It’s bad enough he’s in the House right now.
Make the right choice, Missouri. Not this guy. I don’t care how disappointing you believe Claire McCaskill has been.
