Democratic super-PAC American Bridge relaunched its election-season "It's Not Just Akin" website Thursday after a controversial comment by Rep. Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) regarding pregnancy and rape.
The Democratic group originally launched the website ahead of last year's Republican National Convention, looking to seize on former Rep. Todd Akin's (R-Mo.) comment that in instances of "legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down."
Akin's comment became a flashpoint in the election. He went on to lose his race against Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.), while President Obama won women by a 55-43 percent margin.
On Wednesday, Franks said "the incidence of rape resulting in pregnancy are very low." Franks made the comment while arguing against a Democratic amendment allowing an exception for rape and incest victims in his bill banning abortions after the 20th week of gestation.
