    This is just another smoke screen workaround to try and ban abortion. It'll be shot down by Roe v Wade.

    A woman can seek an abortion for any reason she wants as long as it's within the acceptable termination period.

    Re: Georgia Considers Outlawing Abortions Based on Race, Gender

    A few questions

    How are they going to know if the abortion is based on race?


    I can see a doctor questioning the abortion is being sought if the mother is white and the father is black and the mothers father is a member of the KKK (or something similar)

    But if the mother and father are both black or white I cant see it being a racialy sought abortion

    As for gender, this would be common in some asian cultures. South Asia (ie India) sees this alot. Abortions of female fetus's are quite common as male childern are generally wanted


    Now as for why abortion clinics are generally in the inner city and in poorer areas.

    How about zoning issues

    I dont think many rich suburbs want to have abortion clinics in their community and fight tooth and nail to keep them out, (like most do for strip clubs) leaving area's that do not have much political power as the places they will be put up

    No comment on the black legislators who believe that there really is a conspiracy to reduce the black population?
    I hoped it was obvious they were morons.

    I was mentioning this specific bill, which is a laughably transparent attempt to prevent abortions.

    If no one has explicitly said so, then they can only make assumptions. If the doctor 'suspects' abortion for racial purposes, then they can call it off. 'Suspects' could mean anything. This is just a workaround to delay abortions.

    It doesn't matter what the reason is. Under Roe v Wade the woman has a right to abort. This law is just another challenge to the status quo that will be shot down. In the mean time, the law will stand while the litigation takes place, and perhaps hundreds of women will be denied abortions for the interim. That is basically the strategy of southern states these days.

    Personally, I think the conspiracy-theory aspects of this are bunk. I also feel sure the law, if passed, would be challenged as a violation of the Roe V. Wade ruling.
    Yes, it would. Georgia would then get a federal foot up tbeir crooked southern asses.

    I like it. I do not see how it can be enforced, but if they can find a way to enforce it and inconvenience abortionist then I say good.

    That's what your entire movement has boiled down to: let's think of far-fetched ways in which we can temporarily inconvenience an abortionist. Who cares how utterly deranged we make ourselves look, in the process.



    You have not stopped even one abortion from happening, and you've probably pushed numerous women who were on the fence into deciding to end their pregnancies.

    Liberals and corrupt governments are not the only ones who use incrementation. A little law there that bans abortions based on gender another law requiring waiting periods, another law that bans the transport of minors without parental consent to get an abortion, another law restricts where an abortion clinic can be built, another law that bans late term abortions, maybe another law restricting who give perform an abortion and a few other laws that restrict abortion or some type of abortion.All that adds up.

    If they are sitting there contemplating on whether or not they want to go through with the pregnancy then they are not anti-Abortion.So I am not worried about winning those people over.

    Huh. A lot of these anti-abortion laws lately are taking on a similar hue in that it rests upon the opinion of the prosecutor to know if the would-be law were broken or not. For example, how can anyone know if the woman deliberately harmed herself to abort, and in this case how can anyone know if the woman is seeking an abortion because of the baby's race or gender?

    Anti-abortion people can claim that "at least it inconveniences people trying to get abortions," but as far as I can tell the only ones who are getting inconvenienced are themselves by wasting their own time. By trying to enact laws that are so vague and retarded they're guaranteeing they'll never be passed, and even if they are they would instantly be ruled unconstitutional. Good...job?

    The whole thing seems like more of a glorified photo op than anything.
