Apparently, Akin had misunderstood something attributed to Dr. John Willke, the virtual founder of the prolife movement, and who had practiced medicine for 40 years. He is known to say that because of the trauma of forcible rape, the organs don't function properly. Specifically, that the "tubes are spastic" and can hinder sperm. That is one reason, it is reported, that he says pregnancies from forcible rape are rare. Another reason cited is that in a majority of cases, sperm is deposited in regions not designed for reproduction. This is after a cursory internet search. Of course, many doctors will today say that's not true, just as they will say that Darwinism advances medical science and condoms can prevent AIDS—politics. So, I'm wondering. Can the tubes be spastic in cases of forcible rape? Something a doctor who wants to keep his job will say is irrelevant to me. As time allows, I will search for corroborating or contradictory testimony published at the time Willke's assertion was published.
