    I don't agree, mainly because it still is her body. And, although most women would not have an issue taking Plan B after a rape, I can see it being a difficult choice for at least a few women in very specific circumstances. I think I would have a difficult time taking it if there was a chance any baby could actually be my husband's vice the rapist's.
    I think that the choice should be made for her if for no other reason that to prevent his DNA from infesting another human...

    Are you sure you were even raped? I mean, maybe you actually were interested but changed your mind at the last minute?

    Etc etc...

    Plan B should be available to every woman in a prompt fashion. They shouldn't have to give any reason or personal details to get it. As soon as you create imaginary stipulations, then access is more difficult and restrictions become aribitrary.

    Anyone who was mature enough to have sex and accidentally get pregnant is mature enough to receive Plan B. Whether or not it was a product of rape is none of your business.
    Are those questions hypotheticals?

    While no one should ever be forced to use plan B, anyone who is possibly pregnant from a rape or incest should have the option available.

    No it wasn't. Anyone who openly favors a blatant denial of another citizen's basic rights is of questionable moral character.

The prosecutor would have to accept her testimony, swab her for DNA and have the cousin arrested before allowing her to get the pill on Sunday morning. And you would see that this will help the related families. Please explain how. And, bty, the governmental staff that would be necessary for this will be very large, but your pro big government, correct?

    On this issue, yes we do prefer big gov't. A) Because Planned Parenthood is a Federal program B) Because murder shouldn't be okay in any state. There's some things that no state should be allowed to institute and this is one of them.

    No... they are very real if only rape victims can access Plan B.

    And that's assuming a rape victim feels ready or able to approach law enforcement about the fact they were raped.

    Thank you. Just as with Tigger, though I strongly disagree with your views, at least you are honest about them.

    A) Because Planned Parenthood is a Federal program B) Because murder shouldn't be okay in any state. There's some things that no state should be allowed to institute and this is one of them.
    PP is the US division of the International Planned Parenthood Federation, which is a non-governmental association. Nice try.

    From the Western New York Planned Parenthood website:
    "Planned Parenthood participates in a federal funding program called Title X (10); a program that allows us to supplement birth control, GYN care, and other reproductive health services for women who cannot pay full price for health care services. This program does not pay for abortion care."

    From Lifenews.com
    "On February 17, 2011, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott issued an opinion affirming that the state may exclude providers that perform abortions or are affiliates of abortion providers from a Medicaid program.

    The Texas de-funding has already resulted in the closing of 12 Planned Parenthood centers.

    “A new confirmed total of 12 Planned Parenthood facilities have been shut down in Texas since the end of the 82ndlegislative special session, which dealt the abortion industry a $64.2 million blow. Without government funding, Planned Parenthood facilities are withering on the vine. New funding priorities set by the legislature detail that any facility associated with the abortion industry is given the lowest priority for family planning funds. As a result, three Planned Parenthood affiliates have been forced to close several of their facilities in order to reduce operating costs,” said Elizbaeth Graham of Texas Right to Life.

    Yep, that sounds like a gov't funded and operated program to me. I will agree my wording was misleading, but the intent behind it was to show that Planned Parenthood wouldn't exist without our taxpayer dollars. Something I strongly object to because I am staunchly pro-life yet I have to pay for the murder of innocent babies.

    Abortion, considering as it amounts to basically murder from a pro-life perspective, is not one of the better areas for you to make these kind of arguments. This is not the same sort of issue as who you sleep with or even who you marry.

    I only approve of abortion when it saves the life of the mother.
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.
