Petitioning Representative John Boehner

Remove Todd Akin from Committee on Science, Space, and Technology

As a PhD candidate in Microsystems Engineering, a woman, and a mother I am both horrified and offended by Representative Akin's views on rape, rape trauma, and pregnancy. His comments show an inability to have basic scientific understanding of the workings of a female uterus, and a complete lack of empathy for victims of rape. This man should not be allowed to serve on a committee that has jurisdiction over non-defense federal scientific research and development.
