"This is a problem. This selfish swine, Todd Akin, is going to hurt the Republican party. We're not only going to lose a guaranteed Republican pick-up seat... but it is going to bleed over into other races."
- Conservative pundit Ann Coulter said the above about Rep, Todd Akin following the latter's comments on abortion and rape. The representative has received intense backlash from the GOP, especially after Akin decided to continue his reelection campaign. Perhaps, this issue will change some Republicans' views on women's rights though, didn't the Republicans put something about abortion into their party platform?
