With all due respect to those with different opinions about abortion, the notion that victims of human trafficking should be denied access to terminate a rape pregnancy goes far beyond the line of decency.

I find it deeply offensive, both as a woman and a Christian, that anybody in this society has the gall to suggest that women who have been raped and otherwise sexually abused should be forced to carry a pregnancy to term due to being denied funding and access to abortion.

I am shocked at the relative silence on this issue that my fellow citizens and especially my Republican friends have exhibited.

This is revolting, and I ask people to speak up to our representatives for common human decency, whatever your personal feelings on abortion.
