Pregnancy in the case of rape?

People who are doing research in the area of pregnancy resulting from rape may want to be aware of and respond to a blog post on the web page that calls into question the idea that the distress from rape suppresses ovulation. The article states: “As controversial as the subject of abortion is, irrespective of one’s personal opinion, it is important that the evidence supporting an assertion that rape inhibits pregnancy be based on credible evidence. Such evidence does not exist.” HT Jeff Koloze
