39. In my Catholic HS all the girls got that question wrong on the test
Because we were taught that piece of biological wishful thinking. We all knew better than to believe that only invited sperm can fertilize an ovum.

My guess is that the people who made up that bit of tripe have some amount of compassion but are so virulently anti-choice that they rationalize away having to make an exception for women pregnant by a violent and hateful act. If it can't make you pregnant, we don't have to worry about you aborting for that reason.

But how in the hell is an ovum going to repel invading sperm and not invited sperm? How can the ovum tell?

I can only hope that schools are not continuing to teach this erroneous information.
