I've awakened in an alternate universe

That must be the answer, because I saw this today:
BERLIN (AP) — German bishops have agreed that Roman Catholic-run hospitals should be allowed to prescribe the morning-after pill to rape victims to prevent conception.
A Roman Catholic hospital doing the right thing?  Surely this can't be! But wait, there's more.
The German Bishops Conference issued the ruling at a regular meeting Thursday in the western city of Trier. But it said Catholic hospitals still can't prescribe drugs that would lead to the death of an embryo.
Phew. Same universe. For a moment, I was really worried. After all, in a parallel universe I might not have an iPad.
