Tennessee became one of 14 states that enacted total abortion bans after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in 2022 with its Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization.
Now, researchers estimate that nearly 65,000 women became pregnant as a result of rape in these states, including roughly 5,000 in Tennessee.
The abortion ban in Tennesse started on July 25, 2022. This means that in 191 there has been 5,000 rapes that left woman impregnated or 26 a day, a skosh over one per hour.
And that number does not include rapes that did not result in pregnancies.
No, we do not have an abortion problem, we have a humongous sexual predator problem and that is not resolved by abortion.
Unless you do a post-birth abortion of the rapists.
