The video is very one sided and does not put those quotes into context. I'm also slightly ticked off that Agent Reyes (X-files) was in it.

I am not worried about my rights being taken away. Kind of reminds of back in the 50-60's when people were getting freaked out about getting nuked.

One sided or not ... I'd like someone, anyone to explain to me what "legitimate rape" is and how my body will fight it. o.o

Quoting khigh:" They were making a distinction between forcible rape and statutory rape. There is a difference!"

And so my question is answered lol I am aware there is a difference ... I was simply trying to figure out what they meant as "legitimate rape" and also ... in the case of actual forced sexual intercourse, what supposed mechanism does our body posses to ensure 100% guarantee we will not carry a child from the encounter?



I agree that, with all groups speaking out on a subject, there will be some alarmist comments and a dramatic flair- that's how you get support. But can honestly say they have no point at all?

There is no mechanism to shut down the reproductive system, but those quotes are from two seperate people. Akin was the "shut down" guy and is an idiot. The "legitimate rape " one was Paul Ryan.

I"m confused. What do you mean? It might be the lack of sleep but this isn't computing.

Fair enough. Like I said, I don't necessarily agree with their methods or with the alarmist attitude but the subject is something that we as women should be aware of.

Todd Akin's infamous rape comment:
"Well you know, people always want to try to make that as one of those things, well how do you, how do you slice this particularly tough sort of ethical question. First of all, from what I understand from doctors, that
