Todd Akin: ‘I Ask For Your Forgiveness’

Written by Eric on August 21, 2012.

Facing growing calls for him to step out of the race for his divisive comments about rape, Todd Akin has clarified his remarks and apologized in a television ad.

“Rape is an evil act. I used the wrong words in the wrong way and for that I apologize. As the father of two daughters, I want tough justice for predators. I have a compassionate heart for the victims of sexual assault. I pray for them,” Akin says. “The fact is, rape can lead to pregnancy. The truth is, rape has many victims.”

Akin continues: “The mistake I made was in the words I said, not in the heart I hold. I ask for your forgiveness.” Politico 8/21/2012
