Washington, DC (WIBX) - Republican Missouri Representative Todd Akin is apologizing for comments he made over the weekend but some say it is too late.

Defending his pro-life stance the candidate for U.S. Senate said that pregnancies resulting from rape are "rare," and that if a rape is "legitimate," a woman's body has "ways to shut that whole thing down."  The comments were made during a television interview and Akin has taken to the airwaves to recant his statements, saying that they were completely wrong.

Many are calling for Akin to abandon his bid for the U.S. Senate seat.  Do you agree that he should?  Comment on our Facebook page or vote in today's Question of the Day:
