I would like to see a source for that before I even consider believing it.

I'd always heard that just the opposite is true. Pregnancy is less likely from rape than from consensual sex because:
- Consensual sex is fairly often initiated by the female, and females are much more likely to be desirous of sex, or consent to sex, when they are near ovulation, i.e. fertile
- less than half of rapes involve a completed, normal sexual act (one which results in the deposit of semen in the vagina)
- If the female rape victim is at her most fertile time of the cycle (i.e. on the verge of ovulation), the adrenalin released by extreme of anger or fear can sometimes delay/block ovulation, and thus the possibility of impregnation; and
- in most cases of forcible rape, the victim goes to the ER and receives treatment which blocks pregnancy.
That said, I'm not sure I could document this. Does anybody have a link to good information?
