  • Petitioned Rep. John Boehner

Ohio-08
Rep. John Boehner

Denounce Todd Akin

    1. Sponsored by

      Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee

Sign your name to call on Speaker John Boehner to remove Rep. Todd Akin from the House Science and Technology Committee. 

Republican Congressman Todd Akin told a Missouri news station: 

"First of all, from what I understand from doctors [pregnancy from rape] is really rare... If it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down." 

Someone who believes nonsense like this has no part overseeing science policy. 

Tell Speaker Boehner to immediately remove Rep. Akin from the House Science and Technology Committee.
