Californian Republican gives OFA ammo by talking about rape

After the Akin and Murdock debacles, you would think Republicans would learn to not discuss rape. But no, Californian Republican Celeste Greig delved into the subject of rape.

SACRAMENTO — A leader of a California Republican group may have inadvertently revived the controversial subject of rape and pregnancy.

Before arriving at the state GOP’s spring convention here, Celeste Greig told this newspaper that pregnancies by rape are rare “because it’s an act of violence, because the body is traumatized.”

Greig is the president of the conservative California Republican Assembly, the state’s oldest and largest GOP volunteer organization. Ronald Reagan once called it “the conscience of the Republican Party.”

[....]

Greig, however, went on to say: “Granted, the percentage of pregnancies due to rape is small because it’s an act of violence, because the body is traumatized. I don’t know what percentage of pregnancies are due to the violence of rape. Because of the trauma the body goes through, I don’t know what percentage of pregnancy results from the act.

OFA is smiling right now!

    Back when Aiken made his stupid statement: “If it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.” — I did some research and found that the original medical study that the Pro-Life groups were parroting was a junk science study from Planned Parenthood doctors in the 1970s and 1980s.

    - New England Journal of Medicine, A.N. Groth, Sexual DyFORBESSunction [sic] During Rape, Oct. 6, 1977, p.764-6

    - Mahkorn & Dolan, “Sexual Assault & Pregnancy.” In New Perspectives on Human Abortion, University Publisher of Amer., 1981, pp.182-199

    - Mahkorn, “Pregnancy & Sexual Assault.” In Psychological Aspects of Abortion, University Publishers of Amer., 1979, pp. 53-72

    I did some further study of the author of the studies: “Sandra K. Mahkorn, M.D. who is described as an “abortion counselor” — and is a legal expert who is brought supporting abortion in related court cases.

    Planned Parenthood made this crap up to justify abortions. However, the study fit the pro-Life mindset so they adopted it and promulgated the meme. A pro-life doctor: John C. Willke, M.D., twisted the junk science and made the stupidity available for conservatives to step into like a cow flop in a pasture.

    Guess who originated the word RINO:

    The acronym RINO was coined by Republican Celeste Greig, who applied the term to the Los Angeles Mayor, Millionaire Richard J. Riordan, the original RINO. Mayor Riordan was a “Moderate Republican” who used his millions to finance his election effort to become mayor of Los Angeles, while accepting and giving moral and financial support to Liberal Democrats throughout his career

    @ Fritz Katz:
    100,000 German women had abortions after becoming pregnant thanks to Red Army rape. I guess their bodies forgot to “shut down”.

    @ 4 Fritz Katz: bookmarked. I would hope that conservative would not vote for her next election.
