Because Christian Right leader Bryan Fischer knows soooooo much about women’s health:
As Brian Tashman at Right Wing Watch points out,
… rape does not make pregnancy either impossible or unlikely, and there are other types of rape than “forcible rape,” such as statutory rape or cases where consent isn’t offered or is impossible.
Even Akin has apologized for what he said (though, if he has his way, he still won’t give women control over their own bodies).
But I guess in the eyes of Fischer — and pre-apology Akin — infertile women and men and people who are passed out can’t get “legitimately” raped. They’re wrong. Horrifically wrong.
Incidentally, about 32,000 unwanted pregnancies are caused by rape every year in the United States.
