    Aiken's comments exposed the lie that Republicans and anti-abortionists tell people:  that pregnant women lie about being raped because if a woman didn't consent, she wouldn't be pregnant.  

    It exposes the male Republican view, namely woman= slut.
    Some women's slutty tendencies are cured by marriage, but deep down, women = sluts and that's why they all want abortions ;/

      •  What is really incredible is Dr. Mecklenburg (0+ / 0-)

        the guy who wrote the article using the Nazi Death Camp study was the head of the department of OB/GYN at a Northern Virginia hospital, just outside D.C. INOVA Fairfax hospital.  As a historian, I want details--I have been looking for the actual article but the book seems to be out of print.  

        Here's a guy who is an OB/GYN and in charge of a department at a large hospital near D.C. in the last few decades who would actually and uncritically accept research from Nazi medical experiments on women as a basis for arguing that rape does not cause pregnancy, hence rape is not a reason to have an abortion.  It makes me sick to think about it.
