The debate over women’s health issues has been at the forefront of this election. Just this weekend, Rep. Todd Akin caused a stir when he said most victims of “legitimate rape” don’t become pregnant. Then on Tuesday, the GOP included language in their official platform calling for a constitutional amendment banning abortion with no specific exceptions for rape or incest. 

Two voters who are weighing their vote a bit more carefully this year in light of these events are Callie Pioli and Ally Bishop. Callie is a law student at Suffolk University in Boston, and Ally is a teacher and Takeaway listener.
