Legislating women's health care

Most reasonable people would consider the South Dakota anti-choice legislation barbaric. Even a Fox News poll showed most people were against the bill because it didn't allow exceptions for rape and incest even if they could care less about women's reproductive rights in general.

But emerging from this sewer of disregard comes a new voice of "reason":

BILL NAPOLI: 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.

Apparantly non-religious, non-virgins aren't affected that much by rape. I'm glad to know that.
