    The waiting period should be nine months.
    Then you can abort it.

    Pointless medical procedures to commit murder should be indefinitely delayed.

    Re: 24 hour waiting period for abortion

    I like how you asked a question and then answered it yourself.

    Shows that your not genuine and we shouldn't take you seriously in this discussion
    It was an invitation for someone to try and justify it. Since you have provided none, I guess you agree that there is no justification.

    Scarecrow is providing what is likely the real purpose for the law. The governor doesn't want abortion to be legal, so she will annoy people who are trying to get them.

    Re: 24 hour waiting period for abortion

    The 24 hour waiting period makes it more difficult for poor women to have an abortion. For example, if laws are passed that outlaw abortion of any kind in South Dakota, a women would have to travel to a neighboring state where it is legal. If that state has a 24 hour waiting period it is going to increase the costs of the woman to travel. This may only be a minor inconvenience for women who can afford it, but could be extremely difficult for the poor.

    It doesn't interfere with the right to have an abortion, but it affects the right to have one at the time of one's choosing. And what's the point anyway? Do they really think the woman hasn't thought about it? Like she just woke up one day and wandered into the Planned Parenthood after grabbing a taco? "WTF? Maybe I'll grab an abortion, too".
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?

    How does this follow from a law in question from the state of AZ?
    And... so what?
    Does "making it more difficult" create an infringement?

    I was giving an example. The same argument could apply to any number of states.

    "So what?" - I guess it depends. The only thing the 24 hour period does is make it more difficult for poor people to have an abortion, it really has no effect on anyone else.

    Does it make it an infringement? Probably not...but the bigger question is, Does it serve any real legitimate interest?

    Under the terms of your argument, does "making it more difficult" create an infringement?

    Well, that's not what I said, but let's look at it.

    You're saying that it's wrong for the government to interfere in a woman's decision to murder her child, and that an emotionally distraught woman is fair game for anyone seeking to prey on her in that state by pressuring her to have an irreversible fatal medical procedure done on her child immediately before she has the opportunity to consider the ramifications, her true feelings on the matter, or to consult with friends and family.

    But, in many states, people are allowed to return purchases or withdraw from contracts up to three days after signing them..California exempts car sales from this, if I recall. So, what you're saying is that it's okay to protect people from salesmen, but abortionists and high pressure car salesmen are better than most so there's no need to protect women from them.
