    Re: Texas law requires women to hear description of fetus before abortion

    Honestly, I simply cannot understand how ANY American, could support the government FORCING the taxpayer to pay for a totally elective medical procedure, when its clear its been demanded for ideological reasons..and not concerns for the health of the woman......

    It cannot be for the mother. I've had this kind of ultra sound and I would not want to be forced into it to satisfy anyone else's beliefs.

    This is the important stuff. We canít get lost in discrimination. We canít get lost in B.S. We canít get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    clearly, the Texas Legislature doesn't care what you or any other woman would want.

    Have you even read the current mandate from HHS?

    Funny though how I took your own words and changed only the part about the taxpayer....Good Gawd!

    And that is up to you to decide the emotional needs of a person you have never met nor never will?

    so you value the needs of a weeks-old ZEF more than those of an adult woman?

    The line between elective and unnecessary Vs necessary is fuzzy - if you'd apply that to other things like dental surgery: sure - you don't HAVE to have it but not covering it would put someone in undue stress for no real reason (just an example of how that could be applied - in the wrong way - to something else)

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    I'm a native Texan who is profoundly embarrassed that such extremist religious right ignorance holds control over the educational system and legislation.
