I think we can all agree on the following information. The linked article cites its sources if anyone thinks it is a "liberal rag" - just follow the links to get to the original data.

“From a scientific standpoint, what’s legitimate and fair to say is that a woman who is raped has the same chances of getting pregnant as a woman who engaged in consensual intercourse during the same time in her menstrual cycle,” American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists’ Dr. Barbara Levy told the Post-Dispatch.

A 1992 study by the Medical University of South Carolina determined that the “national rape-related pregnancy rate is 5.0% per rape among victims of reproductive age (aged 12 to 45); among adult women an estimated 32,101 pregnancies result from rape each year.” Many experts believe that number could be significantly higher because an estimated 54 percent of rapes are not reported.
