Well, that's why I tried not to make any overstatements. When it comes down to it, I still think it should be a woman's right to choose whether or not to have an abortion, and most of the time, there are other options. Because there are those exceptions, though, even if it's less than 10% of all cases, I think abortion needs to remain an option. We can't just allow certain women to have abortions for certain reasons, because it can be difficult to prove whether or not someone is telling the truth. Rape kits are only reliable about 72 hours after the assault occurs. However, as far as health insurance goes...if my birth control isn't covered, abortion certainly shouldn't be covered either, unless the pregnancy is the result of rape, or the woman's health is at risk.
