The president of California's oldest and largest GOP volunteer group took a wrong turn while trying to criticize GOP candidates' missteps on women's reproductive rights when she argued that pregnancies resulting from rape are rare "because the body is traumatized."

Celeste Greig leads the California Republican Assembly, which former President Ronald Reagan once called "the conscience of the Republican Party." It works to elect conservative Republicans to public office.

Greig spoke to the Daily Democrat in Woodland, Calif., while in Sacramento for the GOP's spring convention on Friday. She criticized former U.S. Rep. Todd Akin's (R-Mo.) comment that it is "rare" for a woman to get pregnant after a "legitimate rape" because "the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down."

"That was an insensitive remark," Greig said. "I'm sure he regretted it. He should have come back and apologized."

She then went on, however, to agree with Akin's premise that such pregnancies are uncommon.

"Granted, the percentage of pregnancies due to rape is small because it's an act of violence, because the body is traumatized," she added. "I don't know what percentage of pregnancies are due to the violence of rape. Because of the trauma the body goes through, I don't know what percentage of pregnancy results from the act."

Studies do not lend support to Greig's remark. Women who are raped are also often not on contraception, which increases their chances of becoming pregnant.
