    The hotly contested bill appears to have passed in the Texas state senate and is being sent to the governor's desk. It appears that we've inched a little bit closer to progressing as a nation.
    If its late term abortions that bother you (and that's not something i would disagree with) then why the opposition to making the morning after pill (and indeed condoms) available to high school students?

    The pro-illegal abortionists are also going after birth control. Personhood amendments will make many popular forms of birth control illegal here too.

    You were trying to play it off like more liberal abortion policy meant less abortions, but that's not what the study showed. The study showed that countries with better access to birth control have less abortions. That, of course, is obvious without a study.

    Because obviously the new law in Texas doesn't STOP abortions all together, since that would make it unconsitiutional.

    Abortion Clinics Cant afford it ? Boo Frickity Hoo..

    Maybe their supporters should send in donations to help them meet the new standards, or does your support stop at your wallet ?
    I have opened my wallet and I will most certainly open it again.

    Uh huh, so more speculation on your part?

    Why can we require these same regulations (and a lot more) for plastic surgeons but not abortionists? They're both sucking something out of someone's body.

    The plain fact of the matter is, the stat we keep hearing that "every abortion clinic in Texas except for 4 will close" is complete and utter nonsense. All they did was count the number of clinics that didn't currently meet the standard. They did no analysis of their books or financial situation whatsoever.

    Abortions are just going to get a little more expensive, but that comes with all government regulation. The left wanted more government regulation of health care, and here it is. Boo hoo, they brought it on themselves.



    Good thing they don't have to. They can rent office space in a hospital that has it.

    Even better from your article, the person mentions she didn't have to buy her clinic, she's leasing it.
    Restricting services is a means to an end. In Texas...they're dancing around Roe v. Wade. This effort is not about women's health. It's about control women's reproductive rights.

    I don't think it's about women's health at all. I think it's about protecting those who can not protect themselves. Women do have reproductive rights. That will never change. They don't have a right however to wait 20+ weeks to make up their minds after they get pregnant.

    The mandatory regulations...which is a funny thing coming from conservatives...you know REGULATIONS, which to often cry about. But when it comes to regulating women's rights to control their own reproductive roles...they got no problem.

    The point made was that restricting legal abortions does not reduce them it only causes women to seek dangerous back-alley procedures. That is the fact you seem to resist because it makes you a illegal abortion supporter. That is the end result of all your "good" efforts, mutilating 1000's of women, often resulting in death. I hope that makes you proud.
    If you truly wanted less abortions you would be in favor of more availability of birth control measures and more sex education in schools.
