About 5% of all women of child-bearing age who engage in unprotected sex will become pregnant, including those who are victims of incest and statuatory rape. A day in a large urban L&D unit would present it to Rep. King in a very personal way. It's pretty hard to avoid in that setting.

what's the percentage out of that 5%? BTW, I think you misunderstood what King said. On purpose I'm sure.

Does King only rely on information that he receives from friends or family? Mr. King needs to learn how to use google. Just another idiot congressman.

Looks like the OP didn't bother to read the link she posted, and certainly fudged on the title.

When you do things like that, your credibility goes to zero and pretty much stays there.

That's what he said. Embarassing isn't it?

He said that pregnancy in cases of incest or statuatory rape had never been presented to him in a personal way and that he's open to discussion about the matter. I'm suggesting a way for him to fill in his knowledge gap as a legislator who makes policy decisions. In a hospital like Dallas' Parkland, which delivers 15-16k babies per year, he'd see at least a handful every day. My aunt would be happy to introduce him around.

If he has not heard that women can get pregnant from statutory rape, then he is grossly incompetent and extremely ignorant. He has no businesses being in a position of power or influence. Give him a mop and a bucket, that's all he is qualified to do.

He is one of the nuttiest members of the House of Representatives, and he and Michele Bachmann are darlings of the Tea Party.
