Because he's far from being alone. Many Republican and Democratic candidates hold to similar stances, and they don't get a tremendous amount of attention for that. Akin got attention because he said something far more incendiary. Stated that women could prevent pregnancy in the case of rape. That's essentially dismissing one of the biggest harms of rape as though it were nothing, and that's why he got national attention.

He is smart enough to keep a fairly low profile tilll they pass the legislation necessary to start raping women whom they have targetted in advance, and keeping them locked up by court order in warehouses till they produce the babies they want. . . in order to safeguard their foetuses. They will be able to have Courts subcontract their prizes out to Mob-run warehouses, and mass- produce babies to order for clients then. A lucrative industry is on their horizon!
