If the implication is, that if something terrible enough happens, the body will block fertilization, what’s the implication if the body doesn’t block fertilization? It wasn’t all that terrible???
I’m not making the case that was his intended message at all. I don’t think he realized what the implications of his comments were. None the less, it sure gets you thinking.
BTW: Sorry to hear about your family member.
And thanks for the response.
Not will, but may. If you listen to what Akin said, it was pretty clear he was indicating he knew it didn't always work that way.
And thanks. She's doing well now, but it took some years.
The real idiocy is that it’s an irrelevant issue. Whether what he said is true or not, (and I’m no doctor and don’t pretend to know, although I suspect it’s either not true, or even if true, the impact is very minor), it has no relevancy to whether abortion is moral in the case of conception due to rape.
He made all pro-lifers look bad because he made is seem like the pro-life position is based on ignorance and misconception.
