Pregnancy and rape

  • There are more than 32,000 pregnancies from rape each year, the Centers for Disease Control says
  • A woman who has been raped “has no control over ovulation, fertilization or implantation of a fertilized egg (pregnancy),” says the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists
  • The same group says that annually, between 10,000 and 15,000 abortions take place as a result of incest or rape
