The Renegade Raging Grannies let Todd Akin know what they think of his Neanderthal concepts about how women's bodies work. See full lyrics at www.raginggrannies.net. Videography by Douglas H. Ryder.


Here is sample of the song: a Author: Vicki Ryder Tune: "Zip-a-dee-doo-dah"

“Legitimate rape” is great birth control.
So says Todd Akin, and he oughta know.
If we are raped we can rest unafraid,
‘Cause we can’t get pregnant if forcibly laid.

Our female bodies are clever that way,
We only get pregnant when we say “okay.”
Doctors have told him, so it must be so,
The stork only comes if we don’t say “No!”
