Orthodox/fundamentalist promise ring wearers can have abortions

According to State Senator Bill Napoli, who sponsoered South Dakota's abortion ban, there are limited circumstances under which being impregnanted due to rape would allow a woman to qualify for a legal abortion under the exemption to protect the mother's life:
A real-life description to me would be a rape victim, brutally raped, savaged. The girl was a virgin. She was religious. She planned on saving her virginity until she was married. She was brutalized and raped, sodomized as bad as you can possibly make it, and is impregnated. I mean, that girl could be so messed up, physically and psychologically, that carrying that child could very well threaten her life. [Raw Story]
A victim that is brutally raped as described by Napoli but not considered to be strictly religious or a promise ring wearing virgin would be SOL, as would victims who weren't sodomized as part of the rape, athiests and married women. How considerate, makes me wonder what his qualifications for religious are.
