GOP House candidate doubts pregnancy after rape

At an event in Stafford County, Vega, a Prince William County supervisor and sheriff’s deputy, was asked what she thinks Congress should do if the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade.

After expressing support for new state-level restrictions, she said, “The left will say, ‘Well what about in cases of rape or incest?’ I’m a law enforcement officer. I became a police officer in 2011. I’ve worked one case where as a result of a rape, the young woman became pregnant.”

Vega was then asked, “I’ve actually heard that it’s harder for a woman to get pregnant if she’s been raped. Have you heard that?”

Vega responded: “Well, maybe because there’s so much going on in the body. I don’t know. I haven’t, you know, seen any studies. But if I’m processing what you’re saying, it wouldn’t surprise me. Because it’s not something that’s happening organically. You’re forcing it. The individual, the male, is doing it as quickly β€” it’s not like, you know β€” and so I can see why there is truth to that. It’s unfortunate.”
