    policy issue. I agree that counseling on support services for pregnant women is a great thing. Looking at some of those states and how poor they are, I'm not sure that they services they can provided are really much of an incentive to keep a kid.

    And, outside of emergency contraception for rape victims, I suppose I can live with Catholic hospitals not providing services. One of the interesting things about the refusal states is the number of them that also allow providers to refuse to provide sterilization. You can't get contraception, you can't be sterilized, and you can't get an abortion?

    It all comes down to access. If you live in a large city where there are a number of providers, these restrictions aren't so onerous. But if you live in South Dakota, or Wyoming, or Mississippi, these restrictions mean you're gonna either have to spend a lot of money you likely don't have to go somewhere else for the service, or you have the kid.
