For weeks, the airwaves were inundated with messages from Planned Parenthood warning women that this is a dangerous time, their rights in peril.  Then, with two words, one man turned the national debate on life purchase viagra online issues from abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia and the threats to freedom of religion to a question that should not have to be asked:  Does rape really happen?  Worse than the distaction from national issues, is the wounding of thousands of rape victims who struggle every day after their attack with the lie that it was their fault.

It was not the politician’s desire to derail the pro-life movement and reopen old wounds for all these victims of a vicious crime.  He was caught unprepared by the question: What about abortion in the case of rape or incest?  People with the very best intentions can can cause the deepest hurts just because they did not know any better.

To love someone is to desire what’s best for that person and to take EFFECTIVE STEPS to secure it.- Pope Benedict
