Folks, tonight, Wednesday, I’ll be on Yetta Kurland Live! The show starts at 10:00 PM ET. I’ll be on starting at 10:30. We’ll be discussing Rep. Todd Akin, the Family Research Council, rape, and Republicans.
Listen live on WWRL 1600 AM and streaming live at http://www.wwrl1600.com.
Just as a reminder…
Asked about abortion in cases of rape, Rep. Akin responded, “From what I understand from doctors… if it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”
Here a link to all 25 of our articles on Todd Akin and his ’legitimate’ rape comments.
“This is a traumatic thing — she’s, shall we say, she’s uptight,” Dr. Willke said of a woman being raped, adding, “She is frightened, tight, and so on. And sperm, if deposited in her vagina, are less likely to be able to fertilize. The tubes are spastic.”
Akin is a dominionist — according to conservative Andrew Sullivan.
Here’s Yetta’s message on tonight’s show:
This week we’ll speak with New York City Council member Melissa Mark-Viverito, Co-Chair of the Progressive Caucus, about the DREAM Act and “Deferred Action” in NYC, how to fix public housing, the Paid Sick Time Act and more.
