    "not sure how a male rapist or incestuous impregnator can personally "procure" an abortion"

    I agree her original bill was a transparent attack on abortion rights and was disgusting.  

    The edited bill excluding the mother is fine, it could serve a purpose.   Key word could.  

    Most rapists are known by the victim, so in some cases could coerce the victim if other evidence has already been eliminated.  Not all women abort pregnancies from rape.

    Still deems watching to see how the final version ends up after amendments and such to see if she tries to put that original intent back in.

      the mother that doesn't apply to anyone taking the mother to and from the abortion (don't want to drive home yourself after that) or even the doctor performing the abortion.  If they were really concerned about that they would pass a law making it illegal to coerce anyone into having an abortion.

      You have watched Faux News, now lose 2d10 SAN.
