Keep Talking! what about violence against women?

The American College of Nurse Midwives made this (see website link) brief, plain, and straightforward statement regarding a US Representative's recent incorrect remark about rape and pregnancy. The most uncomfortable aspect of this political faux pas is its reflection of ignorance. My first reaction upon reading the remark so widely broadcasted was, "but people know better...don't they?" followed by the disturbing realization that if this person gets away with saying this, the dark ages descend. Thus, I am hoping to keep the conversation rolling.... there are so many potential avenues regarding education. Please help me keep this vital issue rolling. Wherever you chat, blog, converse....ask others what they know about resources for education on health.
