Akin: GOP response to rape comments 'overreaction'
ST. LOUIS — Rep. Todd Akin says his fellow Republicans have overreacted to his comments that women's bodies can prevent pregnancies in case of "legitimate rape."
Akin told former GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee on Huckabee's radio show Tuesday that he hasn't done anything morally or ethically wrong, but got a "word in the wrong place."
He says his party's growing pleas for him to abandon his bid against incumbent Democrat Claire McCaskill seem like "a little bit of an overreaction."
