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.
