You know what I hate?
I hate it when people get their knickers all in a knot about one grave insult made by some insensitive butthead (usually a Republican), who says something to prove that there’s a “War on Women”…then it turns out that maybe, just maybe, what he said wasn’t so stupid/reprehensible/insensitive/ignorant/unscientific. Maybe Todd Akin had a little science on his side (even if he was inarticulate).
Check this out. I found this gentleman’s statistical analysis enlightening. I won’t regurgitate the whole thing; don’t be lazy, and go read it.
I found that 0.2% pregnancy rate across over 26,000 pregnancies very interesting. Makes me even more certain that we should just give up the sexual assault exception, get rid of 99.8% of abortions, then go back and work on the hearts of the other 0.2%. Cuz I’m feelin’ like 52,000,000 dead kids is Plenty, Thank You.
