Pat Buchanan’s column on the fortunes of would-be Senator for Missouri, Todd Akin, seemed perfect. Akin, who does not believe in the so-called “rape” exception to “abortion law”, was made to look foolish with his attempt to explain, as I surmise, the rarity of rape related pregnancies that are terminated.
Right and Left, his science, or rather pseudo-science, has been mocked, one supposes, in an attempt to deflect from the actual Christian position on abortion.
All well and fair in these tactical battles--it is an election year in a battleground state.
Over at Apocalypse Cometh, an article this week in the Daily Mail was highlighted, regarding the positive nature of, ahem, ‘male fluid’ on the female psyche—typical Euro sex obsessed one supposes, but there was this highlighted nugget in the Daily Mail article:
Other recent findings from Gallup’s laboratory suggest that semen-exposed women perform better on concentration and cognitive tasks and that women’s bodies can detect 'foreign' semen that differs from their long-term or recurrent sexual partner’s signature semen.
They suggest the ability to detect foreign sources is an evolved system that often leads to unsuccessful pregnancies - via greater risk of preeclampsia - because it signals a disinvested male partner who is not as likely to provide for the offspring.

For the sake of argument, if the study is 100% correct, Todd Akin actually does have a scientific point to make, perhaps speculative, but reasonable.
The point being is that the Left is allowed to say what Todd Akin says, and the Republicans/Conservative Inc are the true enforcers of Political Correctness.
