“Todd Akin is Probably Lying” Says Medical Publisher

New Rochelle, NY, August 21, 2012— “Todd Akin’s apology is pure garbage,” said medical publisher Mary Ann Liebert. “I believe he made up the story about hearing such trash from a doctor(s). If he isn’t lying, I’m calling on him to ask the doctor(s) who supposedly gave him this outrageous information to step forward. Which won’t happen.”

“Women’s health, including reproductive health, is an important issue for men as well as women,” Ms. Liebert said. "All legislators and candidates, regardless of their party, must put forward evidence-based medical facts."

Mary Ann Liebert is president and CEO of Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., a medical publishing company that publishes the highly authoritative and peer-reviewed Journal of Women’s Health and presents the Annual Congress on Women’s Health, which brings 1,000 doctors and nurses together each March to hear the latest findings and therapeutic updates.
