"Tell me your worst story ever, and let me make political hay out of it."
Senator Claire McCaskill's campaign today launched three television spots aimed at drawing attention to Republican candidate Todd Akin's extreme pro-life views and his "legitimate rape" comment from earlier this year.

The commercials all feature sexual-assault survivors, including one woman who says she's a Republican who chose not to take emergency contraception at the hospital. "Because of my personal beliefs, I declined," she says. "Here's what else I believe: No woman should be denied that choice."

Below are all three spots. Take a look, then tell us: Will these ads sway voters?
