    These republicans go to great lengths to oppose abortion even if abortion is a result of a rape.

    Maybe the girl's brain sends some secret nerve signals to the reproductive system to shut down till the whole legitimate rape process is over and then automatically reboot the system ? :hmm:

    Guess what guys, "legitimate rape" has made its way into the Urban Dictionary. :rotflmao:

    Definition: "Rape between one man and one woman who are not married or even acquainted; the only rape sanctioned by the Republican Party."
    Example: "Was it legitimate rape, or was it just like, hilarious prison rape or acceptable acquaintance rape?"

    Almost exactly the same thing was said here in North Carolina years ago. By a Republican. :)

    What are the doctors or biologists saying?

    Is it true that a woman who has been coerced into having sex, will release hormones to destroy the incoming sperm? It is a fact that women's bodies do produce spermicidal hormones. After ejaculation, millions of sperm cells swim beyond the cervix, and the first one to reach the egg fertilizes it, but the egg immediately releases hormones that kill all the other subsequent sperms.

    I am no biologist, but this angle needs to be explored.

    We need comments from experts, not political claptrap!

    The medical claims go back to the 1970s, but the issue is too politically charged by the "woman's right to choose" slogan for any scientific conclusion to be reached. Remember, the Democrats claim that Republicans are engaging in a "war on women."
