Rep. Daylin Leach (D., Montgomery), the sponsor of a new bill that would require every hospital in Pennsylvania to immediately administer Plan B to all victims of rape (underlining mine):
"Some people believe AIDS is punishment for sin … but we would never allow doctors to withhold treatment from anyone struck with the illness. We are all free to practice our religion, but if we put ourselves in a position to provide emergency medical care, our right to practice religion ends when we start making life-changing, adverse decisions for other people."
He has a point if rephrased. We should not be life-changing or adverse decisions for other people. I would consider killing innocent children in the womb to be quite adverse and especially life-changing or really a life-ending decisions. It is rather strange to say that we are free to practice are religion, but if we want to prevent murder then that is out of bounds.
