I'm scared to write this post.

Oh my: Missouri GOP Senate nominee says victims of ‘legitimate rape’ don’t get pregnant; Update: ‘A Torricelli situation’? | Twitchy

After 10 years of using Natural Family Planning, stress is a factor in postponing ovulation or having an anovulatory cycle. I've read even stress from moving can delay ovulation, so always note such events in a chart  Rape is trauma and causes stress. Pregnancy or abortion from rape is very uncommon. It exists, but in the scope os pregnancies and abortions very very rare.

The Congressman stated a factual truth.

There I did it, I defended some of the factual aspects of his statements. I feel totally screwed.

    A woman may wonder why a single reproductive hormone can cause ovulation delays. The reason for this is the fact that the hormones act on the body and on each other to stimulate ovulation. For example, FSH stimulates egg production in a woman’s ovary, and the eggs develop in follicles that also have the job of producing estrogen. Estrogen surges in a woman’s body a few days before ovulation and causes a surge in LH, which then stimulates ovulation. If even one of these hormones isn’t produced and released when it should be, ovulation may not occur when expected.

    Sometimes women also experience delayed ovulation because of some type of physical or emotional stress. For example, if a person is dealing with a great deal of mental stress and anxiety, the stress may interfere with the processes that allow ovulation to proceed. Illness, a physical type of stress on the body, may lead to delayed ovulation as well. In fact, a woman who performs an extreme amount of exercise may also have delayed ovulation.
