HARTFORD, Conn. — Legislation that would have required all hospitals, including Catholic facilities, to prescribe rape victims the so-called morning after pill, was allowed to die Monday.
The Public Health Committee, which took up the bill 15 minutes before its deadline, ran out of time to act on a possible compromise that would have allowed Catholic hospitals to use private nurses to administer the pill. The medication helps prevent pregnancy if taken within 72 hours of intercourse.
Well that is good news for now, but the legislatures idea of a compromise is pretty laughable. We know you are morally against killing an innocent child so we are sure you will have no problem if a "private nurse" does it instead.
