Segment 4 Disturbing Viral “Study” Claims 64,656 Rape Pregnancies in Pro-Life States
“Recently a troubling ‘study’ was published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). The so-called study claims that 64,565 rape pregnancies have happened since Roe v Wade was overturned, specifically in states with laws that protect the unborn. The research appears to be a not-so-subtle shot at these pro-life states, as if to blame them for the rape. Unsurprisingly, the study is ripe with flaws and is more closely related to a pro-abortion opinion piece than a peer reviewed journal article.”  Bradley Mattes has written about its important flaws.

Bradley Mattes is the Co-founder and President of the Life Issues Institute.
