VIDEO: US Politician Apologizes For 'Legitimate Rape' Comments
US Congressman Todd Akin has until 5pm Tuesday to decide whether to withdraw from the Senate race in Missouri following his controversial remarks about rape.
He suggested that women's bodies can prevent pregnancies in cases of what he called ``legitimate rape.''
Akin has been told that if he stays in the Missouri race, he'll be cut off from national GOP campaign aid.
In an ad being shown across the state of Missouri, Akin apologized and asked for forgiveness.
He said he "used the wrong words, in wrong way."
However, despite widespread condemnation from friends and foe alike, Akin says he won't drop out of the race to become a U.S Senator.
