As many of you know, a new South Dakota law would outlaw abortion under almost any circumstances. Republican State Senator Bill Napoli, a backer of the bill, was asked about what would qualify for an exception.
A real-life description to me would be a rape victim, brutally raped, savaged. The girl was a virgin. She was religious. She planned on saving her virginity until she was married. She was brutalized and raped, sodomized as bad as you can possibly make it, and is impregnated. I mean, that girl could be so messed up, physically and psychologically, that carrying that child could very well threaten her life.In other words, it's not enough to be raped, you have to be a religious virgin who was sodomized. If you weren't a virgin, after all, you were sexually active and thus deserved to get impregnated. And you have to be religious, because rape would be plain old sex if the fear of God wasn't the thing keeping you chaste. Rape is easy on atheists, apparently. They probably wear slutty clothes and ask for it, or have unprotected sex and cry rape when they get pregnant and it's inconvenient. I think he threw in the sodomy just because he's a sick fuck. But that's who we're dealing with here: someone who thinks the only acceptable reason to save a rape victim from having to birth her attacker's child is if the attack was brutal enough to make her suicidal and thus eligable under the "mother's life at risk" clause. Any other rape is bearable, and she can just deal.
