While pregnancies do not normally happen as a product of rape,they do occur
Yes,they do. Where did you get the idea that they don't? That sounds so ridiculous. And I've never heard of stress preventing pregnancies,even though it can have a bad effect on it. Liked this movie,even though I had major problems with the ending---I thought it was pretty *beep* by today's standards,considering the guy practically held her prisoner for a while. What's unique about it is its rare (for the early '60's) realistic and thoughtful look at how a woman had to deal with the aftermath of rape at that time on her own,without any support groups to help her deal with it (that wouldn't happen until the '70s,when feminists successfully fought to get rid of the stigma surrounding rape and changed laws around it.) I'm guessing the baby was as a result of the assault, but I could be wrong---the movie dosen't tell you and just leaves it up to you figure it out,regardless.
