When I first heard of this fiasco, I was wondering WHERE was the official Pro-Life response ?
I am a 35 year veteran of the Pro-Life movement. Back in the 1970's , Dr John Wilke spoke to this issue directly.
The question is this : Why do "some" women have a lower rate of pregnancy from rape than from "every day" sex ? The statistics show that this is a fact : Some women DO have a lower rate of pregnancy. The reasons are still not so clear. One theory is from Dr. Wilke. The theory is that the Trauma from the very event will sometimes cause "some" women to have a hormonal shutdown. Possibly as a defense mechanism against this attaching foe.
Whatever the reasons, this is a MINEFIELD that Aiken should have stayed out of !!
