PBS REPORTER FRED DE SAM LAZARO: (South Dakota Senator Bill) Napoli says most abortions are performed for what he calls “convenience.” He insists that exceptions can be made for rape or incest under the provision that protects the mother’s life. I asked him for a scenario in which an exception may be invoked.
SENATOR BILL NAPOLI: A real-life description to me would be a rape victim, brutally raped, savaged. The girl was a virgin. She was religious. She planned on saving her virginity until she was married. She was brutalized and raped, sodomized as bad as you can possibly make it, and is impregnated. I mean, that girl could be so messed up, physically and psychologically, that carrying that child could very well threaten her life.
(So there you go. If you’re a committed Christian virgin saving your cherry for some fumbling mong who thinks a clitoris is a border plant and who then gets beaten to within an inch of her life and then impregnated rectally, Bill Napoli will abort you himself.)
