The Court issued its decision on January 22, 1973, with a 7-to-2 majority vote in favor of Roe. Burger and Douglas' concurring opinions and White's dissenting opinion were issued with along with the Court's opinion in Doe v. Bolton (announced on the same day as Roe v. Wade). The Court deemed abortion a fundamental right under the United States Constitution, thereby subjecting all laws attempting to restrict it to the standard of strict scrutiny.[22]

surprised this isn't a thread yet

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.

Thanks to having the religious rights dick up the Republican Party's ass deeper and deeper.
