A 'paradise' amid the rocks and weeds

Todd Akin

Just a few weeks after winning Missouri's Republican Senate primary, six-term congressman Todd Akin caused an uproar while explaining his views on abortion to a reporter. He argued that a woman's body has natural ways of preventing pregnancy after a 'legitimate' rape. The comments, for which he later apologized, provoked an unprecedented nationwide uproar and doomed his candidacy.
