    Re: US appeals court upholds new Texas abortion rules

    I am pro-choice and I don't really look at the law as a "pro-life" or "pro-choice" issue. I support higher standards for abortion providers and the facilities they use to provide those services. I also support proper pre-abortion assessment, which I personally feel is best provided with the transvaginal ultrasound.

    That isn't to say I support the law in its entirety, or that I don't question the true motives of those who drafted it...but I recognize that there is good that can come of it, and I hope women who have better experiences than *I* did will appreciate it for those benefits. My abortion was a terrible experience...cold, impersonal, rushed, painful....and the after care was even worse. I had mine done by Planned Parenthood of Dallas...by the people who are the friggin' poster children for abortion offerings, mind you...and it was by far the worst medical attention I've ever received. If this law helps women feel more comfortable in the skill level and attentiveness of their doctor I'll stand behind it. And if people are truly dedicated to providing women with safe, easily accessible abortions as they say...well, then they'll find a way to comply with the law and do just that.

    Where there's a will, there's a way, right?

    You know which governments also interfered in peoples sexlives?

    Iran, when it abolished contraceptions and abortions after 1979. A step so stupid even these savage fanatics legalised contraceptions again later.

    And communist Rumenia. It outlawed abortion and contraception, to make things worse: the government there actualy forced all teenage girls and young women to undergo regular inspections by government nurses to make sure that when one got pregnant - she stayed pregnant.

    What`s it like being in company like that?

    It's a pretty serious stretch to compare outright banning of BC and abortion to the law in Texas. Not a very honest attempt at debate.

    It is considering that the people who wanted the law passed are authoritarian swamp people screaching "abortion holocaust" with their repulsive toothless gobs.

    They also live in buildings and wear clothes.

    I have to apologize...my original response was made on the assumption that a serious debate was possible. I see that isn't the case, so I'll refrain from further engagement.

    Since when is the wearing of clothes an indication of how radical your political alignment is?
