    Each time my wife had an abortion we had to wait about a week. We did the counseling at a local clinic, and took some kind of 'counseling verification form' to the place where the actual abortion was performed.

    I just had to wait long enough so there was an appt slot open. Usually a couple days.

    See this makes me think the waiting period was nothing more than some kind of political bone to get the gun part passed.

    Of course it was. It's stupid either way. I don't see it as some "undue burden" by any means, but I don't see what the point of it is either. It makes the "pro life" people feel like they "won" something and raises the ire of the pro choice people mainly because it makes the pro life folks happy.

    It's just stupid all the way around. Good political ploy though, gotta give the governor that.

    Whether or not you like it, abortion is legal. Therefore, bu definition, it is not murder.

    If so, how?
    If not, why not?
    If there's no 24 hour waiting period for Sex.. there shouldn't be one for abortion either.

    The point may very well be to start a slippery slope law.

    "If we can get a 24 hour "wait period" bill to pass then maybe we can get a 48 hour "wait period" bill to pass...then maybe a 7 day "wait period" then maybe...."

    See what I mean?

    Re: 24 hour waiting period for abortion

    1) I agree with the delay. I myself was required to wait (not sure if it was clinic policy or law) 24 hours after taking the pregnancy test (which I took there) before even making the appointment. After that, I had to wait three weeks for the procedure. That was because I had a pill abortion, which is done at six weeks. I was very early on when I found out, so I had to wait. Worst three weeks of my life, and had I not had a crippling phobia of childbirth and all things medical, or had pill abortions not existed (I'd NEVER have a surgical one- IV, etc, no way!) I probably WOULD have changed my mind.

    2) I think the delay should be, of course, lifted if the mother is in danger, for example a tubal pregnancy.

    So, concentration camp deaths aren't murder, after all, the government's obeying the law.

    So long as we all know every legal form is filled out, the tees are dotted, the eyes are crossed, everything will be just fine.
