Misprison of Felony

The VoteYesForLife.com initiative has been criticized by our opposition for the rape exception, which states that the rape must be reported to qualify as a reason for an abortion.  However, according to federal law, “child abuse, child molestation, sexual abuse, rape or incest” must be reported by family planning providers that receive Title X money!  If our opposition had been obeying this law, what is the problem?

Current law states:

“SEC. 212. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no provider of services under title X of the Public Health Service Act shall be exempt from any State law requiring notification or the reporting of child abuse, child molestation, sexual abuse, rape, or incest.”
