"Legitimate Rape" Comments Based On Nazi Science Experiments

Remember during the 2012 congressional elections when a few candidates made unfortunate comments about "legitimate rape"?  Ever wonder where that theory came from?  Emily Bazelon writes an interesting article at (11/06) on the origins of it, and some other related issues.  The title gives it away, "Nazi anatomy history:  How the corpses of Hitler's victims are still haunting modern science—and American abortion politics."  It's a chilling but fascinating look at medical history.
