Glenn Grothman: still wrong for helping rapists.

Hi folks,

Ah, the end of another semester ate the last few weeks, and Glenn has been relatively quiet, but here is the latest: a NO vote for providing rape victims with emergency contraception. [I actually feel a little bad about taking him to task this way since we had a nice phone conversation last week -- but I'd feel worse about letting him get away with it. ;^)]

Here are some of the details:

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Hospitals would be required to provide the so-called morning after pill to rape victims under a measure that passed the state Senate on Wednesday and has the backing of Gov. Jim Doyle.


Those voting against the proposal Wednesday in the Senate were Republicans Scott Fitzgerald of Juneau, Glenn Grothman of West Bend, Dan Kapanke of La Crosse, Neal Kedzie of Elkhorn, Mary Lazich of New Berlin and Joe Leibham of Sheboygan.

Preventing pregnancy in the case of rape seems obvious to me. Voting against this idea, and I've said this before, seems to be helping the rapist finish the job. Those who believe that emergency contraception is a kind of abortion simply haven't considered the question of human life carefully enough to speak intelligently about it.
