| As we all know, Republicans believe there are real soldiers and "phony" soldiers.
The same logic applies to rape in their minds.
It's another day, and another Cro-Magnon Republican Senate candidate opens his big, fat, ignorant, pie-hole:
"From what I understand from doctors, that's really rare," said Todd Akin, Republican candidate for Senate in Missouri, said of pregnancy caused by rape. "If it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. But let's assume maybe that didn't work or something. I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be on the rapist."
Ummmm, I know Doug Lamborn would kill all childrens' programming, but Dr. Seuss doesn't count as your reference when discussing violence against women in any way, shape, or form.
Here's some reality for just another Republican who can't stand to be near, nor can comprehend in their tiny little brains, what we who live in our God-given 3-dimensional Universe commonly refer to as "facts":
The national rape-related pregnancy rate is 5.0% per rape among victims of reproductive age (aged 12 to 45); among adult women an estimated 32,101 pregnancies result from rape each year. Among 34 cases of rape-related pregnancy, the majority occurred among adolescents and resulted from assault by a known, often related perpetrator. Only 11.7% of these victims received immediate medical attention after the assault, and 47.1% received no medical attention related to the rape. A total 32.4% of these victims did not discover they were pregnant until they had already entered the second trimester; 32.2% opted to keep the infant whereas 50% underwent abortion and 5.9% placed the infant for adoption; an additional 11.8% had spontaneous abortion.
