Rape Crisis Center director reacts to Akin's comments

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Employees at the Rape Crisis Center in Las Vegas are reacting to Congressman Todd Akin's controversial remarks.

Executive Director Hannah Brook said Akin's comments reflect ignorance.

"If you talk to anyone who has conceived as a result of the act of rape," Brook said. "It's not a political issue."

"They're not thinking of politics and whether it's a republican decision or a democratic decision," she continued. "They have a lot more to take into consideration."

Brook also said it's unfortunate Akin's comment about conception brough attention to the end result of rape and not the act itself.
