David Letterman is retiring. Such great memories of watching him over the past thirty-two years!
I also disagree that the law is clearly only about rapists, as I said before. It seems to me from the text of the thing that there's plenty of room for confusion about that, however they wish to back peddle now.

If they feel they can't come to me, I hope they then seek out another trusted adult to help them in place of me.
If not, I just hope they have a safe place to go to have an abortion. My first priority is their lives.
I love my girls and I love talking about my girls, but this is not one topic that I wish my daughters to be drug through or debated on.

But that isn't true. The below is specific to Tn
Also specific to TNAbortion Rights
- If you are under 18 years old and want an abortion, one parent or legal guardian must give permission before you can get one. That is called parental consent. If that’s not possible, you are able to ask a judge for permission, or get special permission if it’s an emergency. This is called judicial bypass.
- You do not need your parent/s permission if it is a medical emergency and/or you are the victim of abuse, assault, incest or neglect.
- There is no mandatory waiting period to get an abortion in Tennessee. A law requiring waiting periods has been permanently blocked by the courts.
- Your state does not provide Medicaid coverage for all medically necessary abortions. Medicaid can be used only in cases of life endangerment, rape or incest. If you need help paying for an abortion, call the National Abortion Federation Hotline at 1-800-772-9100, Monday–Friday, 7 a.m. to 11 p.m.; Saturday–Sunday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. (Eastern Daylight Time). The hotline can tell you where and how to get financial help for an abortion in the U.S.
- To learn about the process of adoption and the services available, visit the National Council for Adoption and the Independent Adoption Center. You can also call the National Adoption Information Clearinghouse at 1-888-251-0075 for more information.

Some state medicaid program do pay for it, use this link and figure out if your state covers it. If they do, you can go to "welfare" office and get emergency coverage and the state and taxes will help pay for it. http://www.ourbodiesourselves.org/book/c…
