“I understand there is a body of scientific evidence out there that suggests that a woman who has been violently raped has some biological mechanism that may inhibit her ability to conceive,” Carr said.
Carr noted, however, that he didn’t have any idea if that body of evidence has been vetted, and he did not recall speaking to a reporter.
So let's get this straight: Carr has heard it's true that women possess some heretofore unknown powers to prevent pregnancy, but he won't go so far as to vouch for it personally because he hasn't read it in any medical journal or anything scientific like that. That clarifies matters. Who knows if this surprising biological finding about women has been fully peer reviewed? When talking to the media about abortion, a politician can't be too careful. Carr is smarter than he looks.
