It's not unexpected that this douchecanoe's apologies have been for using the "wrong word," singular. Unless there's a part of this interview that I haven't heard elsewhere, he hasn't apologized for claiming that women's reproductive systems can "shut the whole thing down" when raped.
I know! I've been saying the same thing!
This isn't a foot-in-mouth issue at all.
Hopefully, it will spell his doom.
Women get pregnant from forced rape all the time. A very close friend of mine had to abort her baby after she was raped on the street. I fucking hate Republicans and want them all to die in hell.

Will someone link me an example of illegitimate, consensual rape?

I can't even listen to this. Obfuscate obfuscate obfuscate.

SPOILER - he invokes 9/11 at about the 9-minute mark.

You don't have to be a crazy, misogynistic ideologue to support the GOP, but it sure helps!
The GOP: Not entirely anti-woman, but #1 among anti-woman voters.

Hi, I was wrong. I shouldn't have said what I said. I shouldn't have the position in government I have. I duped all the voters. Whoops. I said the wrong word.
SURE THING BUDDY.

The whole affair seems like "a little knowledge being a dangerous thing". There's actually a substantial academic literature on female orgasm being a mechanism for mate semen preference. It goes back at least to this article (cited by 156):
Human sperm competition: ejaculate manipulation by females and a function for the female orgasm
RR Baker, MA Bellis - Animal Behaviour, 1993
So it plausible someone might misread this sort of research in some popularization (from "rape is less likely to lead to pregnancy", to "rape doesn't cause pregnancy") and pass this reading on to Akin and other ignoramuses.
One of the worst things about this to me is that its implicitly replacing consent with "female sexual stimulation"
Or as people have sometimes put it, "yeah, you like this, don't you, bitch?"
The entire notion that women consent to sex if they aren't getting their ass beat is the reason why "forcible rape" is disappearing as a legal catevory
