“If a man happens to meet a virgin who is not pledged to be married and rapes her and they are discovered, he shall pay the girl’s father fifty shekels of silver. He must marry the girl, for he has violated her. He can never divorce her as long as he lives” (Deuteronomy 22:28–29).
They are following this Old Testament historical scripture from the Hebrew tribal days as if it were a part of the Gospels of the New Testament!!!! (OK, she's not forced to marry him... but she does HAVE to have his baby even if she isn't pregnant yet, i.e. they think thier sperm is sacred! (Or the are they trying to create a conflict to hide something?)
Also, A Flowchart from MotherJones: "Can I Get Pregnant?" Learn the biology of your body, according to conservative male lawmakers.
An example of a VERY weird & disturbing law from John McCain's State Arizona...
Arizona lawmakers have drawn up strict new abortion laws... that decree pregnancy begins two weeks before conception.
Final legislative approval was given to a bill that would ban most abortions after 20 weeks of pregnancy, handing Republicans their latest win in ongoing national efforts to impose greater restrictions on abortion.
But the bill defines a foetus' gestational age 'as calculated from the first day of the last [mother's] menstrual period'.
