These organizations do much much more and abortion is only a very small part of what they do, the government funds do NOT fund abortions.
    they don't care. tax-payer money goes to PP, and PP does abortions, so ifso-facto.....the USA pays for abortions.

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

    This is a terrible law, a contrivance and serves special interests without respecting the rights of those who this law effects. The bright side is there are loopholes, "exceptions to the law are made if a patient doesn't live within 100 miles of a provider... is underage or has a fetus with an irreversible medical condition or abnormality."

    U.S. District Judge Sam Sparks, who heard the case said, "There can be little doubt that (the law) is an attempt by the Texas Legislature to discourage women from exercising their constitutional rights by making it more difficult for caring and competent physicians to perform abortions"

    U.S. judge allows enforcement of Texas abortion law

    Funds are allocated / assigned and kept separate. Think of it like an attorney. Attorneys have to keep each client's funds separate, without collusion. The same is true of many businesses and organizations. This is what regulations and accountants and the IRS monitor.

But here we are, you with your cold hard fingers wrapped around the neck of my first amendment and Iíve got to shout as loud as I can, because if I donít, before you know it, you wonít let me say nothing at all"

    Is that all there is to it in your mind? You're trying to simplify one of the most complicated things in life. There's far more to being a mother/parent than just having kids.

    What are you talking about? "Obamacare" doesn't mandate treatments, period.

    Well, yes. The definition of life is very simple. And my comment had nothing to do with being a parent, simply that a human is a human no matter how young or small they are.

    The bottom line is this, I believe that abortion is accepted in this country as it is now at about 12 weeks. At that point it is not a cluster of cells anymore, nor is it anything but a human being growing in there....

    This is unmistakable and the reason I believe that proponents don't want the mother to see it.

    Abortion is legal up to 24 weeks in parts of the US. Google 24 week fetus, it'll blow your mind. These people are sick.

    A new Texas law requires that women seeking an abortion to see a sonogram of the fetus, as well are asked to hear the heartbeat of the fetus.

    Words cannot describe how disappointed I am.
    agreed. they should be required to watch the procedure. so, when (if they are advanced far enough) their baby tries frantically to avoid the saw, they can observe first hand in raw honesty what they are doing.

    if what you're doing is so horrible that you can't stand to become aware of it... maybe you shouldn't be doing it.

    It's simple?

    So what's the definition of life, then - what makes something alive and something not alive?

    A heartbeat, lungs, self awareness, cellular development, sensations, thoughts?

    Scientists can't even agree on what exactly defines life - but I guess you have knowledge they don't have so anytime you'd like to share this secret you've learned I'd like to read your research papers on it.
