I cant believe how prehistoric some of our states are! What is wrong with you Mississippi???? What gives a state the right to force a woman who has been RAPED to go through a nine month pregnancy and have a child? Why is she not given the choice? I don't think abortion should be used as a form of birth control - I do think unwanted pregnancy is a difficult situation and should be evaluated on a case by case basis. Regardless it seems to me that Mississippi is missing the boat here. Why not offer counseling services for women who are dealing with unplanned or unwanted pregnancies?
This is the exact paragraph that sent me into a tail spin:
JACKSON, Miss. - A state House committee voted to ban most abortions in Mississippi, which already has some of the strictest abortion laws in the nation. The bill approved by the House Public Health Committee on Tuesday would allow abortion only to save the pregnant woman's life. It would make no exception in cases of rape or incest. The bill now goes to the full House, which could vote next week, and then to the Senate.
Boy am I fired up!
