So if a rape accuser gets pregnant, she's lying about rape?

As one of the only blogs that gives voice to persons wrongfully accused of sexual assault, you'd think COTWA would have heard of Rep. Todd Akin's "test" before this. Shows how dumb we are.  I've got a better idea, Mr. Akins: why not just toss rape accusers in the lake and if see they float?

In the past several weeks, this site has covered a series of unspeakable injustices against innocent or possibly innocent persons. We certainly hope that Mr. Akin's ill-advised comments aren't mistaken for advocacy on behalf of the wrongly accused -- they aren't.  And we certainly do wish that even a small amount of the press coverage being heaped on this story -- which is enormous -- could be diverted to expose some of the injustices we cover here. I'm not holding my breath on that last one.
