    Full of vitamins and sugar, too.

    Meanwhile, if one is going to dogmatically define the term "murder" as being a legal issue only, then one needs only change the law and one can kill millions without any problem, and the mo-rons that cite that nonsense are doing that merely to sidestep the moral issues involved with killing innocent lives for no valid reason.

    It seems the state assumes we as adults do not know what we are doing with our own bodies and our decisions should be legally delayed. Letís just allow the state to make decisions for us or better yet, letís allow one group of Americans to dictate the decisions for the rest of America.
    Oh, sweet liberty.

    The word "murder" has a definition, just because you can't use it's emotional impact by misusing the word doesn't change that fact. There are plenty of other words that you can use if you like, many of which are perfectly valid and accurate.

    Unfortunately, the anti-abortion crowd often doesn't care about being accurate, but about making an emotional argument that misleads the public.

    If you want to refer to abortion as killing, have fun. It's true and absolutely valid. If you refer to it as something that it patently is not, however, you reveal yourself to be an emotional con-man and blatantly dishonest, two things that the anti-abortion crowd have made perfectly clear over the years.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Re: 24 hour waiting period for abortion

    I would say that this law infringes upon a woman's right to seek an abortion. Ostensibly, the woman has already considered it for more than 24 hours on her own. I am tired of the right wing spinning abortion to make it seem like an assembly line procedure where women just run into the clinic willy nilly as soon as they find out they are pregnant. I promise you that 95% of the time it is not the case.

    Theoretically, if the woman were 1 day away from the cut off period, it would be enough to deny her the procedure.

    The waiting period is an attempt by the right to obstruct the abortion procedure with a time delay while simultaneously honouring Roe v Wade. During that 24 hour period, any number of things could happen, such as guilt trips from doctors, staff, or activist groups, notification of parents, and the waiting period itself implies that the procedure is so serious that it requires further consideration. It creates an atmosphere of fear and authority that might make the woman reconsider her rights.

    If you have freedom of speech, your speech is not delayed by 24 hours; if you have freedom of the press, the press are not denied publication for 24 hours while they "consider" their position; Roe v Wade means women are entitled to abortions. It is their right. This right should not be delayed by any legal authority UNLESS the abortion falls into the cut off period, the doctor believes a delay is medically necessary, or the girl is underage and the parents have decided against it.

    Any other reason is against Roe v Wade and this should be challenged in SCOTUS as soon as it is convenient.

    How about a 24-hour wait to buy a gun?

    If it means 24 hours while they perform a criminal background check, then I'm in favor of it; however, there would be no equivalent reason for abortion.

    There should only be two people with the power to push for a delay in abortion: the woman and the doctor... and the parents, if the girl is under age. Other than that, the State has no business interfering.

    This is just the typical evangelical non-sense that is continually erroding the rights of people within the nation.

    If there was some 'equivelant reason' for delaying an abortion for 24 hours, would you then be infavor of it?

    Could you give an example of what a hypothetical equivalent might be?
