>> Tell voice "I am blind."

"I am blind."

The voice responds "Your eyes are swollen shut because of the bruises. Do you remember what happened?"

>>Ask voice "What happened?"

"What happened?"

The voice responds "I am sorry to inform you that you were raped and severely beaten. My name is Dr. Lieberman."

>> Ask Dr. Lieberman "Did I receive emergency contraception?"

Dr. Lieberman responds "This hospital does not provide that because of principled reasons. As long as you do something for what you call "principled reasons" you can do anything you want. Fortunately, you live in Connecticut so another hospital is probably a short ride away. I assume, anyway. Ta-ta.

You manage to open your eyes a little bit. It hurts. You are in a hospital bed wearing a hospital gown.
