Mo. Rep. Pushes Bill Requiring Father’s Signature for Abortion, Except in Cases of ‘Legitimate Rape’
A GOP lawmaker in Missouri introduced a bill that requires pregnant women to receive written consent from the father of the child before an abortion can be performed – or in exceptional cases of “legitimate rape.”
Former Missouri Congressman Todd Akin discusses his new book “Firing Back: Taking On the Party Bosses and Media Elite to Protect Our Faith and Freedom.”
Speaking on KMOX, Congressman Todd Akin said he believes abortion is a more serious moral crime than the “next worse thing,” slavery.
John and Michael talk with former U.S. Cong. Todd Akin, author of “Firing Back”; with STL Cards Broadcaster Mike Shannon about last night’s All-Star game; with CBS Military Consultant Major Mike Lyons on the Mideast; and with Award-Winning Author Earl Swift.

Akin has an amendment attached to the 2013 National Defense Authorization Act, a religious “conscience clause.”
New report says U.S. Senator spent $19.3 million and has campaign debt of $238,000. Her latest campaign account filing has a balance of less than $8,800.
Recent reports say the 65-year-old might try his hand at writing a book.
