What I agree and don't agree with is not relevant to this discussion, IMO
What a woman does with her body is her choice.
Her sins are her's to deal with in her own way.

I don't like abortion and I think that it's murdering an innocent human being... but I think that women should have the right to choose to have it if they want.

I do not think that the government should pay for it or subsidize it however.

Maybe there are less and less doctors doing them (not by legislative fiat persay) because most OB-GYNs recognize what is being done is wrong. You know...like abolitionists in late 1800s.

No it's government regulating them out of existence.

But that's a GOOD thing here of course. Cause conservatives hate big government. Unless it's doing something they like, of course.

All a doc has to have is admitting priveleges to a hospital and bam...he's an abortion doc. Now...find a hospital...or build one. Just like most/if not all same-day/outpatient surgery facilities must have admitting priveleges to a hospital in the event something goes awry.

Sounds like you, Delhommey and mmmbeans, have found a perfect business opportunity in Mississippi.

If I wanted to live in a religious backwater taking secret routes to work everyday to avoid fundamentalist terrorists, I would have signed up to be a contractor in Afghanistan, thanks.

Btw...if you're not willing to do anything about it re: opening a facility in MS that could cater to these women, quit whining about it. As I said, find one hospital that would admit from these doc's facilities and you're golden. You mean to tell me that liberals cannot build a single hospital to cater to this growing need? You'd rather force a Catholic/Baptist/whatever hospital to require they admit an abortionist.

Sure. Also the father should have the right to demand an abortion. If the mom refuses, he should not be required to pay child support.

He's not saying he can force an abortion...he's saying that the man should have a say and if he wants no part (yet willing to pay for the abortion), that he shouldn't be forced to pay child support.

I somewhat agree in principle, but I feel douchebags out there impregnating everything they can get should be forced to support monetarilly or through public service. Pay the state back for the costs you are incurring on society.
