Violence

Are there any statistics on women that are raped, incestuously or otherwise, and are subsequently found to be pregnant? Aaron

I have never heard any statistics on the number of women who are raped who end up pregnant. The only possible source for this would be the FBI, CIA or the Department of Justice. These are the agencies of the federal government which are responsible for documenting rape statistics. Also, I imagine it's hard to determine, one because don't want to always admit that they are pregnant with their rapist's baby and two because some of these women may terminate these pregnancies, etc... Good luck
