Remove Todd Akin from the House Science Committee!


Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO) in his remarks regarding rape and pregnancy (http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=fdisTOKom5I) has demonstrated that legitimate science, which long ago debunked this myth about how pregnancy occurs, is less important to him than his theological beliefs.
Further, he has shown that he is willing to jeopardize the lives and welfare of American women while disregarding science and modern medicine.
We, the undersigned, respectfully request that Todd Akin be removed from the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology. In the 21st century, a crude anti-science propagandist like Todd Akin does not belong on the committee that makes decisions that effect the future of American Scientific Achievement.
