Todd Akin: It's "Common" for Doctors to "Give Abortions to Women Who Are Not Actually Pregnant"

Say what? Here, watch for yourself as GOP senate nominee Todd Akin talks more nonsense: 

On the floor of the House in 2008, Todd Akin delivered these prepared, yes prepared, rearmarks so you know this isn't just another slip of the tongue for Akin, it's what he believes.

Pretty horrifying, don't you think? He actually believes that it is common for doctors to perform abortions on women who aren't actually pregnant. How do you perform an abortion on a woman who's not pregnant? There's no pregnancy to terminate, there's no fetus, no embryo to abort. The science! Akin doesn't understand basic science! And he sits on the House Science Committee!

TRANSCRIPT:

Who wants to be at the very bottom of the food chain of the medical profession? And what sort of places do these bottom-of-the-food-chain doctors work in? Places that are really a pit. You find that along with the culture of death go all kinds of other law-breaking: not following good sanitary procedure, giving abortions to women who are not actually pregnant, cheating on taxes, all these kinds of things, misuse of anesthetics so that people die or almost die. All of these things are common practice, and all of that information is available for America.
