    Re: Missouri Republican claims 'legitimate rape' rarely results in pregnancy

    This guy with his abject ignorance was bad enough, but don't contribute to what this fool has started.

    A woman is as likely to become pregnant from rape as from not rape. The stress from the rape doesn't change the odds of pregnancy. That is all.


    The combination of misunderstanding and cherry-picked science even led some to conclude that a woman who says she was raped yet becomes pregnant must have been lying about the attack. Modern proponents of the claim repeat it despite empirical research showing that rape victims are at least as likely to become pregnant as women who have consensual sex, and possibly more likely.
    ***
    "A woman who is raped at a vulnerable time in her menstrual cycle is as likely to conceive and retain a pregnancy as a woman who was voluntarily attempting pregnancy," said ACOG's Levy. "There's absolutely no validity to any sort of theory that the trauma related to rape - or to any thing else for that matter - would shut down ovulation that has already begun."

    And I believe that figure is the upper range for women 'trying' to get pregnant. They probably have intercourse close to once a day.

    Akin still claims he will not drop out. 19 hours until the deadline for the GOP to be able to replace him on the ticket without a court order.
    Total tax rates- People living in poverty: 16.2%. The median American: 27%. Working people who make over $140k/year: 31%. The top 1%: 30%. Super rich investors: around 15%. Help the democrats retake the house.

    Those guys got off light then.
    So if having sex 30 times over a month results in a pregnancy 25% - 30% of the time what does that make the odds of getting pregnant from a single act of intercourse?
    Someone provided a link which said that about 5% of rape victims become pregnant.
    That study didn't seem to differentiate between legitimate rape and illegitimate rape though--go figure.
    I may be wrong.

    The human race will survive. It's the Congress I worry about.

    Well if they're married, maybe 2 times a year. If you're lucky.
