Sign our petition if you are also disgusted by scientifically illiterate Republican leaders attempting to defend rape related anti-choice policies. These uneducated and fanatical politicians attempt to minimize the horrific consequences of rape in order to pursue a twisted political agenda and, in so doing, degrade women.Everyone is welcome to their own opinion, but not to their own facts. Rapes cause pregnancy. Celeste Greig (and other factually challenged politicians) need to resign from their high profile political positions so policy can be made based on science, not ideology.
, told the media that pregnancies by rape are rare "because it's an act of violence, because the body is traumatized." Ironically, she said this while criticizing former Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin for his comments last fall about "legitimate rape."
We need to put people like Todd Akin, Richard Mourdock and now Celeste Grieg on notice. President Reagan once called the all-volunteer California Republican Assembly "the conscience of the Republican Party." Is this the conscience that Grieg wants for her organization?
Sign the petition: Celeste Greig, resign immediately as head of the California Republican Assembly. Rape is indeed traumatic, but it can produce pregnancy. That's biology. Your suggestion that the chance of pregnancy is lower is offensive and denies scientific reality.
