They need to look at nature. Animals like cats and dogs will get pregnant no matter what. One female + one male is all it takes. We are animals too so our sexual organs do not know the difference. We're just designed to make offspring. If the female body could shut down like that you wouldn't still get periods on some forms of birth control so that's how clueless our organs are. There's also cases of IUDs falling out that's how bad the body wants to procreate.
King's comments are teleologic and prehistoric, not relevant today. Studies have shown that actual forced rape tends to cause spontaneous ovulation, so more apt to conceive.

What he said was weird but true. It was wildly and maliciously misrepresented by the media, which makes them a lot worse than he is.

How exactly was it misrepresented? Explain in detail.

Bigger question is why do people continue to vote for him?

He said everyone has ancestors who are the product of rape or incest.

The fake news media said this, "GOP Rep. Steve King of Iowa questioned on Wednesday whether there would be any population left on Earth if not for rape and incest."

That's a lie. Totally different from what he said. Obviously.

What he said was that if everyone who had an ancestor who was the product of rape or incest were eliminated, there would be no people left. That doesn't imply that there wouldn't "be any population left on Earth if not for rape and incest", and you have to be really stupid or biased to think it does.

As far as I can tell, he's the most sensible voice in the entire Congress.

Don't know about incest, but at least in terms of rape, that is how the invading tribes conquered their enemies. They killed off the men and raped the women.

Much of the racial/ethnic "mixing" of populations today in ancient times was often the result of "coercion" of conquered females of neighboring tribes, aka rape.

Women who resisted were killed off.
