California GOP Leader: Pregnancies Resulting From Rape Are Rare Because ‘The Body Is Traumatized’

So, it happened again. Republicans popping off at the mouth about rape:

Celeste Greig, president of California Republican Assembly, the state’s oldest and largest GOP volunteer organization told The Bay Area News Group this week that pregnancies resulting from rape are rare “because it’s an act of violence, because the body is traumatized.”

Bizarrely, Greig made the comments while criticizing similar remarks from Todd Akin, who falsely claimed that “legitimate rape” rarely causes pregnancy since the female body “has ways of shutting that whole thing down.”

In other news, it’s Saturday and water is wet.
