Rape and Medical Interventions??
Question from Bill on 11/28/2012:

Judie,

Are there any morally permissible medical interventions for a rape victim to prevent conception?

It seems to me we cant be sure of the exact time so no intervention would be 100% safe(?)..

Answer by Judie Brown on 12/4/2012:

Bill

As many Catholic doctors have made crystal clear, the only safe treatment for a rape victim is the use of a douche and antibiotics to protect her from disease.

Any other sort of "treatment" runs the risk of aborting a newly created child.
