No abortions for raped military women

I like how angry Cenk Uygur gets about this, because that's exactly how I feel. As a man, I'll never be in this situation. But when I start thinking about it, I just get furious.

Frankly, I feel angry about rape in the first place. I don't know any rape victims, but I'm still angry. As a man, I'm embarrassed that women even have to think about rape. That it exists at all makes me feel ashamed of my gender.

But then, to restrict abortions for rape victims is just beyond the pale. Thankfully, I'll never know how a rape victim feels, but I know exactly how Cenk feels in this video clip, because I feel the same way.
