Rider would prevent one less victim of rape

In any context, an abortion entails multiple victimizations. Real life scenarios will determine the exact number. Always, there are more than one.

In cases of rape, incest, or her compromised health, abortion poses a dilemma legally resolved only by the victimized woman in accordance with her moral code; not mine, some Taliban leader’s, or anyone else’s. Thank God for that.

But some desperate young ladies not having the abortion insurance “rider” now required will be denied the medical care they seek forcing them to make choices that will add to the victimization toll.
