Emergency contraception bill stalls in Pennsylvania House
The Associated Press reports:
The sponsor of a bill that would require hospitals to provide sexual assault victims with emergency contraception says a lack of support has stalled it in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives....
Disappointed advocates say the only way it would have passed is if it had been watered down considerably....
Pending state regulations will soon force hospitals to transport rape victims to another facility if they want emergency contraception and the hospital won't provide it.
