Thanks for the link, Doug. I really cannot stomach the feeble rationales some of the hard right give for some of this legislation. In the article is one of the worst, IMO :

I'd respond by saying one's religious convictions should not trump another's right to medical care. It's one thing to refuse to bake a cake for a same-sex marriage and quite another to restrict or block access to care for reproductive health.
I'm often reminded of one stand-up comic's take on this - "Women should be allowed to vote on abortion issues/laws but if you possess a (male member) - no vote! " I'd imagine consensus would be rapidly reached with far less heat and fury.
