The 'Legitimate Rape' Pharmaceutical Ad Misinforms to Inform

 - Sep 2, 2012

After Senate candidate Todd Akin made some ill thought out comments about rape and abortion this "Legitimate Rape" Pharmaceutical Ad was created to satire the occasion. According to this advertisement, you shouldn't be worried about pregnancy if you get raped because your body has ways of "shutting that down." Comforting, isn't it?

The entire ad is hilarious, but also a bit hard to watch. This combination emphasizes the horribleness and silliness of Rep. Todd Akin's remarks. The ad also does a good job of explaining what Akin's definition of rape actually means when applied to the real world. For someone who wants to represent an entire state in the United States Senate, Todd Akin really needs to take a moment to think about just how crazy he sounds.
