No Truth to Candidate's Claim That Rape Hinders Pregnancy, Experts Say
Leading ob/gyn group in United States calls Rep. Akin's remarks 'inaccurate, offensive'
By Amanda Gardner
TUESDAY, Aug. 21 (HealthDay News) -- Health experts are strongly refuting the assertion by a Republican Congressman that pregnancy is much more unlikely if a woman is raped.
"That is absolutely false," said Dr. George Attia, director of the division of reproductive endocrinology and infertility at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine.
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), which counts 56,000 members, also called the remarks "medically inaccurate, offensive and dangerous."

Many in the GOP think Akin is an idiot. We don't call all democrats morons because Joe Biden..
Akin has lost the support of the GOP party and numerous GOP organizations. Paul Ryan called and asked Akin to resign but he's a selfish moron.

The GOP agrees and everyone has asked him to step down, and the RNC withdrew his funding.

This is a LIE the compulsory pregnancy people have been claiming for at least 40 years. We were shown their propaganda crapola back in the early 1970s when I volunteered for Planned Parenthood. It wasn't true then - it isn't true now.

I was skeptical of Akin's claim immediately as he even said it.
