On Tuesday, attorney and rape survivor Gloria Allred returned to the show to talk about the recent remarks made by Rep. Todd Akin. "What he said was actually inaccurate and also very dangerous," said Allred. "Because he is suggesting or was suggesting that in fact a woman who is raped can't get pregnant, which we know is false."
"We cannot go back to those days when abortion was a crime in the United States," added Allred, a woman who herself was impregnated as a result of rape, and openly supports a woman's right to choose abortion. "And when many women died or were maimed by illegal abortions. And that is why what he did was very, very dangerous."
Joining Allred in the volatile segment was Rebecca Kiessling, the product of a rape, who vehemently took the opposing position:
"I was almost aborted. But I was legally protected here in Michigan at the time. Abortion was illegal even in cases of rape," she explained. "And so my birth mother was forced to carry me by law. And I owe my life to pro-life advocates legislators who saw that mine was a life worth saving."
Debbie Wasserman Schultz also joined the program to weigh in on how Akin's remarks and unwillingness to quit the Missouri senate race will affect the GOP. "They had a tough week," said Schultz regarding the Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan campaign adding that "week two is a little bit - even more tough."
"They issued their Republican Party platform that will be adopted at the convention next week," explained Schultz, that "fully embraces a human life amendment to the constitution with no exception for rape, incest or the life of the mother."
Meanwhile New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman called Akin's comments "despicable" and "outrageous" and applauded the GOP's efforts to banish Akin from the senate race.
Friedman noted that Akin's refusal to leave the race makes the congressman candidate a liability. "The fact that he is not dropping out, the fact that he co-sponsored legislation, you know, related to this issue with Congressman Ryan, I think is going to be a real ball and chain for the Romney-Ryan ticket with women and men in this country," Friedman said.
