Kelly Burrell is the star of Missouri Republican Senate Candidate Todd Akin’s latest commercial. In the ad, Ms. Burrell speaks about having an abortion and having been raped. The ad carefully sidesteps whether the mother of two had an abortion following a rape, though that is certainly the implication of the spot.
The interesting thing that is not explored in the ad is Ms. Burrell’s relationship with Congressman Akin and his son. Their history is more involved than the simple appearance in this advertisement as a raped woman having an abortion and then regretting it would suggest. Read the article that appeared well before this ad here.
That old dog Akin and his Republican cohorts just won’t let that bone go.
PLEASE VOTE ON NOVEMBER 6 TO LET MITT ROMNEY AND HIS COMRADES KNOW THAT RAPE IS RAPE AND THAT THEY ARE ON THE WRONG SIDE OF THAT ISSUE
