    Wow. Am I awesome or what?

    I think there is a minority of women who do take that decision lightly enough to get a spur of the moment abortion, but 24 hours wouldn't deter someone in that mindset anyway, so admittedly mine is a moot point.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    So you're saying that murdering a baby is no more of an emotional hurdle than buying a Big Mac.

    Well if you got rid of all the government programs, rules and taxes that are "a meaningless gesture at best" then we would not have much of a government.

    Just an idle remark.

    It's incidental that a government program is meaningless, if there is too be objections against this for the lack of a clear 'purpose.' Then we can hardly expect you to reply to the real issues when you're going through the entire board applying the same standard to all the issues.

    As far the government is involved, yes. Plus, if you buy the big mac at Kentucky Grilled Fetus, its all the same anyways.

    Re: 24 hour waiting period for abortion

    A 24 hour wait is pointless, but I don't think it really infringes on anyone's right to an abortion. I see it as kind of like a gray area, because it does and it doesn't.

    But something that would be an infringement would be if this universal health care debacle gets passed. I mean, imagine an entire board consisting of mostly pro-lifers, and your petition for an abortion comes up for review (assuming that the process is speedy and the board sees your petition before the baby is now in college at the age of 20). Now picture this scenario...

    Board Member A: Well, it appears that Christie, age 15, in Alabama wants to abort her unborn child that has signs of down syndrome and an abnormal growth on its ass. The unborn child also was conceived by her lunatic uncle via rape during the fifth full moon of the year. Should we let Christie abort her unborn child?

    Board Member B: *Snarls like a frothing beast* With the Lord Jesus as my witness, I do declare that we force this little tramp to go through with the pregnancy. How dare she murder that poor, defenseless child deep within her womb...

    Board Member A: But sir, the child has down syndrome, and the abnormal growth cannot be removed without the possibility of paralyzing or killing it later on. Surely we can approve...

    All Board Members: *Chants of disapproval for Board Member A's remarks. They then toss balled up paper and chairs at Board Member A*

    Board Member B: Get outta here, you sinner! Let god's will be done! *Stamps "DENIED" on Christie's Petition*



    Rated EE for Excessive Exaggeration.

    But seriously, I wouldn't like the idea of such decisions to be decided by a board, when the individual is capable of making such a decision on their own. And even if in future abortion was still legal, there would still be the possibility of the board denying it purely on ideological reasons, and if the individual tried to protest it through the courts, the process would take too long and the unwanted child would wind up being born after all. THIS is more of an infringement on rights than a 24 hour wait.

    This is also assuming that the individual is even on the government insurance to begin with. And this is also assuming that abortions would even be covered/dealt with under gov't insurance. It's just thoughts, is all. <.<

    Does this infringe on the right to have an abortion?
    If so, how?
    If not, why not?
    I don't have a problem with the 24-hour waiting period, as long as there are exceptions for medical emergencies. It seems prudent to discourage pregnant women from making a hasty decision they'll regret for the rest of their lives, just because they had a fight with their boyfriend or husband. 24 hours gives them a chance to cool down and weigh the issue.

    I have a big problem with requiring written, notarized consent for minors. At the very least, the minor is the one who has to give birth...not the minor's parents. And in most cases, the minor's parents aren't going to raise the kid as their own for 18-22 years.
