EC in the ER
You know women, always faking rape just to get EC
Colorado is considering legislation that would make sure EC is available to rape victims in emergency rooms. During debate on the issue, Republican state Sen. David Schultheis asked:
...how doctors "determine that a person actually did incur that sexual assault. Are they going to take the word of that individual? You could see individuals coming in that just wanted to make sure that last night's stand didn't result in a pregnancy and basically say that they had been a sexual assault" to get the contraceptive.
The sponsor, Sen. Betty Boyd, told Schultheis to "have more confidence in the integrity of a woman that she's going to be truthful." A shocked Sen. Brandon Shaffer, D- Longmont, scolded Schultheis, saying, "I think the suggestion that a person is going to feign being raped in order to get emergency contraception is mildly insulting ... more than mildly."
I chose to look more at the issue of womens rights with pregnancy, abortion, and contraceptives. I consider myself pro-choice and this article really stood out. I do not understand how a man who could not understand what a women goes through after they have been raped, could say that they can not be trusted if they come into the ER for EC. To go through the tramatic even of being raped and then ending up pregnent form that experience and not being able to do anything about it, the experience would stay with you for the rest of your life. It should be every womens choice to abort a baby, and no one should assume that women can not be trusted on there actions.
