    24 hour waiting period for abortion

    As seen in AZ:

    Gov. Jan Brewer on Monday signed into law tight new restrictions on access to abortion in Arizona, imposing a 24-hour waiting period on women seeking the procedure and requiring that minors first receive written, notarized consent from a parent or guardian.
    Governor signs bills on guns, abortion

    Does this infringe on the right to have an abortion?
    If so, how?
    If not, why not?

    Re: 24 hour waiting period for abortion

    IF they can impose waiting periods on things that are actually rights then why not impose waiting periods on things that are not actually rights?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Nothing wrong with it as long as the procedure is not being denied.

    Isn't a right delayed a right denied?

    Considering they want to deny someone a whole lifetime of rights, I'm willing to look the other way.

    24 hours to consider one of your life's most important questions?

    I would say that is prudent.

    What is the justification for the 24 hour waiting period? Its not a huge burden, but it has no purpose. Medical procedures should not be pointlessly delayed.

    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

    Re: 24 hour waiting period for abortion

    There's nothing wrong with a 24 hour waiting period. As long as the "waiting period" isn't long enough to interfere with any legal deadlines, and as long as there are exemptions for emergency surgeries, I'm not the least bit concerned with a mandatory waiting period for abortion.

    There is no right to commit murder.

    The waiting period should be nine months.
