Incumbent U.S. Senator Claire McCaskill’s campaign released three new super-personal ads today featuring rape survivors and conservatives speaking out against her opponent, Todd “Legitimate Rape” Akin. In the video below, Diana, who declined emergency contraceptive after she was raped, citing religious beliefs, attests to her belief that women should have the choice. Maybe there’s a chance this war on women will backfire, after all.
