Akin Claims Abortions Done on Women Who are Not Pregnant

Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO) is standing by a 2008 statement about doctors performing abortions on women who "are not actually pregnant," BuzzFeed reports.

Said campaign spokesperson Rick Tyler: "There's ample evidence that abortion doctors on any number of occasions have deceived women into thinking that they're pregnant, and then collect money for a procedure that they don't perform. And I say they don't perform it because obviously the women weren't pregnant."
