    situation; a careless accident.
    There are other situations: birth control fails; and a pregnancy can go terribly wrong. It's convenient to dismiss those and only think of the single instance that serve their argument.

    If Government can MAKE a woman bear a child, Government could PREVENT a woman from bearing a child. Same diff constitutionally.

      that is divisive language.

      Of course anything that would be endangering the life of the woman would be covered. If a woman is in danger now she can walk into any hospital or doctors office and see if that is the case.If it is, she gets help, noone is going to put her life at risk of death or compromised health because of Stupaks amendment.

        And then there’s the question of what is considered, in technical medical terms, as an abortion. Hospitals determine a terminated pregnancy where the fetus was not expelled as an abortion, requiring a "D&C" procedure. Under the Stupak amendment, insurance companies would not be allowed to cover this procedure either. It’s possible that this would fall under the "life of the mother" exemption, which is in the bill, but that would only be the case if the life of the mother was directly threatened. There is no "health of the mother" exemption. (Source, emphasis added)
