State Senator From Idaho Suggests Women Use Rape As An Excuse For Abortion
The Idaho Senate has passed a bill which requires women to have an ultrasound prior to obtaining an abortion. The bill makes no exception for victims of rape, incest, or medical emergencies. Right before the bill went up for vote, Senator Chuck Winder offered these remarks.
“Rape and incest was used as a reason to oppose this, (the ultrasound bill)"Winder said on the Senate floor. “I would hope that when a woman goes in to a physician with a rape issue, that physician will indeed ask her about perhaps her marriage, was this pregnancy caused by normal relations in a marriage or was it truly caused by a rape. I assume that’s part of the counseling that goes on.”
