"In a 1972 article, Dr. Fred Mecklenburg argued that pregnancy is unlikely from rape. That article has influenced two generations of anti-abortion activists with the hope to build a medical case to ban all abortions without any exception. The article uses an argument claiming experiments in Nazi death camps had shown women are less likely to ovulate after trauma."[11]

The above is from a Wikipedia article about Todd Akin and the "rape" controversy. Wow! This medical doctor uses "experiments in Nazi death camps" to bolster his arguments! Very professional!
What trauma did these women suffer in these Nazi death camps? Must we speculate, or is the trauma defined within the article? This makes me sick at my stomach that a medical professional would use this to forward his own political views at the expense of these women!


  1. Could it be they didn't get pregnant because they were suffering from starvation? I am with you Lorainne........the comments by these people are sickening.

  2. Thank you so much, Kelly, for your comment. I am sure that these women were also in a state of starvation., but the horrible truth is here...The Nazis tested this hypothesis "by selecting women who were about to ovulate and sending them to the gas chambers, only to bring them back after their realistic mock-killing, to see what the effect this had on their ovulatory patterns. An extremely high percentage of these women did not ovulate." I am about to make a post linking to this entire
