The Legitimate Rape Song coming on the heels of Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin’s remarks on abortion in the United States is one of the best things to come out of his political missteps. The Republican party, known for being controversially conservative in some instances, has since distanced themselves from Akin after he remarked that “if it’s really rape, the female body has ways to shut that whole thing down”—meaning that pregnancy never comes from rape when it’s real rape.

The Legitimate Rape Song will teach you what is and isn’t rape in a humorous, but politically infused manner. Akin’s remarks have sparked a huge debate within the United States and Republican party on the position of the party as a whole on the subject of abortion in the case of rape, incest and harm to women’s health.
