But I doubt abortions will be an option under Obamacare. Here is my thing about abortion. It is not as simple as black and white. What about a young rape victim? What about any rape victim? What about the case of the mothers life? Yes, I know these are rare instances, but they happen. There needs to be an option for the women in place to talk with her health care professionals and her family and friends and decide what is best for her and her body. Let the states figure out what they want to do as far as those exceptions. That's all I am saying.
If we get into semantics in the case of the mothers life by forcing her to go through with the pregnancy and labor are we not murdering her instead of the unborn child? Either way it is not an easy decision or something to be taken lightly, but it is simply not as simple as the sanctity of life act. Also telling a rape victim she has no other choice than to carry her rapists child is pretty forceful and does not give her a choice over her own body.
Anyways, it becomes grey in some areas in my mind and those are where we let the states step in.
