Fools or Fabricators 

Wednesday, January 29th, 2014

Recently, a nun gave birth. Though the nun in question claimed she had not had sex, her convent’s mother superior dismissed the notion of a virginal birth, stating “It seems she was not able to resist temptation”. Harsh, but fair.

Perhaps the most interesting item comes at the end of this short piece, however:

Last year, the British Medical Journal published a long-term study on reproductive health that found almost 1 percent of young women in a U.S. study claimed they got pregnant despite never having sex nor using assisted reproductive technologies. Of the 5,340 women who reported pregnancy, 45—or 0.8 percent—reported a virgin pregnancy.

After reading that, I have to wonder how many of these women don’t understand how insemination can work, and how many of them are just liars?
