I Hate To Make Sweeping Statements, But…

… pretty sure all of us Americans should be worried by Todd Akin, the Congressman who believes in the qualifier of “legitimate” rape, and that, according to the doctors he’s consulted, women’s bodies will reject pregnancy in the event of rape (just to be clear, this is absolutely false). We should be worried not only because he has a viable race for re-election Senate going on, but also because he currently sits on the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee.

I know I have suddenly taken an interest in knowing what qualifications one has to possess to be admitted onto this committee, and what continuing education standards there are to ensure the members of this committee– and ALL committees– stay knowledgeable about the fields for which they are making decisions that impact our entire country. I have a sick feeling the answer is none :(.
