Unto the stupid all things are stupid

From the NRO stable of writers, Mona Charen comes to the defense of a Senate candidate who relied on 13th-century misconception* to justify the idea that women shouldn't have access to abortions after rape because if they became pregnant then they can't have been legitimately raped. Hilarity ensues.

Stupid ignorabimuses deserve Senatorial representation too!

* The forced-birthers reviving this belief for the 20th century cite Nazi death-camp research on ovulation after torture as their primary source.

Many things about the human body are peculiar and amazing- for instance, the ability to write NRO columns without a functioning cerebral cortex.

They are merely teaching the controversy.

It is a post-truth world, after all.

Ho. Lee. Crap.

Ignoring the relative states of health of "concentration camp detainee" vs "typical American woman," I don't suppose it ever occurred to these bozos that a woman might have already ovulated just BEFORE the rape? In which case the stress wouldn't stop her from having already ovulated?

I looked it up, and it appears that there is no evidence that witches are made of wood, but it didn’t seem out of the realm of possibility to me.
