He is probably right saying it is rare for women to get pregnant from a rape, the reason is because it is standard procedure to offer the morning after pill which is considered the same as the sin of abortion among some of the warped republicans trying to shove their version of religion down women s throats.

Well, there is truth to that in that roughly 10% of the rape victims become pregnant as a result of the rape.
Bottom line here is that 10% is 10% too much and a woman should not be forced to bear the child from the rapist.

further to the conversation, Paul Ryan has redefined rape.
it now needs to be "forcible"
which translates to, if you were drugged and raped, then you weren't actually raped because it wasn't forced.
does that make sense?

Akin says he "heard it from doctors."

Missouri should lift the licenct to practice of any MD who told this fool this.

But, I suspect, he is just a liar. Probably a Lying neo-conservative or tea-bagger, as they all Lie as they breathe.
