Kingman Letter: Only 'sick people' think like Akin

Will someone answer a question for me? What is "legitimate rape"?

According to Todd Akin, if a woman gets pregnant during rape then it was not rape. Unless a woman is beaten prior to being sexually assaulted, it is not rape. Todd Akin actually went as far as saying that if it is inevitable, then the woman should just relax and not fight it and enjoy it.

What kind of sick person would even think like that? I know, someone who has never seen a rape victim hide in fear, or thinks that it was their fault or wishes they had died. I have, and let me tell you, they were not beaten, they were not stabbed or anything, but they were raped.

It is heartbreaking to see a person go through it. Todd Akin, I have one thing to say to you - rape is rape is rape!
