Didn't read but he should probably look at the statistics that say rape, health of mother, and incest account for less than 4% of abortions.

...and that the overwhelming majority of abortions are in the first trimester.

So, this jerk specifically made sure that there are no exceptions for rape because women might "lie" about whether they were raped or not. Additionally, women have to get two separately ultrasounds done? WTF is going on with conservative legislators these days. A large amount seem to have lost their frickin' minds.

My question is how would he know and How would anyone know what the true percentages on abortion related to rape are since rape is stil an under reported crime.

It seems his ignorance is his most developed skill.

This is no joke, but at least a 1/4 of Idaho is related to me {one side or the other of my grandparents 3 sides} so it really bugs me that their doing this. I'm now writting a letter to good old Butch Otter Gov of Idaho & letting him KNOW that I will no longer be going to his state, buy anything from his state nor doing business with anyone in his state. As my dh & I are small business owners & we work in 3 states {WA,OR & ID} I will be cutting them off from my money. If any woman in ID wants a abortion they can just cross the border to come into WA/OR very easy. As my Nothern Idaho born Father used to say "there is nothing good that comes out of Southern ID, all it is sheeperders, LDS & GOP"

~~Sam stitches well with others, runs with scissors in her pocket. Cheerful and stupid.

I've got LDS ancestors from Idaho in my family. I wonder if we are related. LOL.

But there is also the case of consensual sex when an underage girl gets pg by a man over the age of 18... And wasn't PP in hot water for getting girls to lie about either their age or that of their boyfriends before an abortion?

No, Planned Parenthood didn't "get in trouble."
