Im surprised the church backed away from this one given thier stance on the issue. I always found it funny that these hospitals would supply you with all the viagra you wanted but no birth controll. In these cases women would have the right to use the drug if they were rape victems. You often do not have a choice as to what ER you are taken to so to level the playing field is only fair.
