You just knew they weren't going to pass up this opportunity.
‘Legitimate Rape’ Comment Featured In Law & Order Plot
Law & Order Special Victims Unit on NBC will feature Missouri Rep. Todd Akin's comment in an upcoming episode.

trial, is a U.S. congressman.
“It’s nearly impossible for a victim of legitimate rape to become
pregnant,” the actor says, a paraphrase of Rep. Akin’s August 18, 2012
comment that “if it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try
to shut that whole thing down.”
