Abortion is a constitutionally protected right. Has been since 1973.
----------
""Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973), is a landmark decision by the United States Supreme Court on the issue of abortion. Decided simultaneously with a companion case, Doe v. Bolton, the Court ruled 7–2 that a right to privacy under the due process clause of the 14th Amendment extended to a woman's decision to have an abortion, but that right must be balanced against the state's two legitimate interests in regulating abortions: protecting prenatal life and protecting women's health. Arguing that these state interests became stronger over the course of a pregnancy, the Court resolved this balancing test by tying state regulation of abortion to the trimester of pregnancy."
You are one of the idiots who blame Gov't on invading your privacy, yet you're too stupid to see that's exactly what you're doing with your unConstitutional anti-abortion beliefs.
----------
Why do you nitwits hate the US Constitution and defy it's rulings??
Because you're sore losers, that's why!!
You insist on outlawing safe abortion centers, yet bitch and whine when people like Gosnell are all that's left for poor women.
You're another sick old post menopausal woman, just like Carol, who you appear to have a crush on. Go munch her carpet elsewhere, ya freak!!
Isn't it amazing that the crowd that screams less gov't,
that requiring background checks prior to purchasing a firearm is an infringement on their constitutional rights
are the first to want the gov't to dictate who you can marry
are the first to want the gov't to dictate what medical procedures you can have
are the first to want the gov't to control the sex lives of women
are the first to want the gov't to dictate what you can use personally, what drugs you can use recreationally

DemoKRats have always helped and been on the side of the black folks for years keeping blacks enslaved, equal, aborted controlling their numbers, in their place, under-educated and poor, living off their Masters wealth and sold out...

Yet wide spread opinion among the soldout blacks? Race Trumps Common Sense....

A black urban crime rate that is 8.3 times higher than that of whites.

KLAN PARENT HOOD has done a better job of killing blacks off than your old KKK ever could you racist...

The abortion issue will always come to the surface after such events as Gosnell slashing throats of newborns occur.
This resulted in a shift in Americans opinions about the issue, inspection or lack of clinics, etc.
This may bore you but infant viability and safety of women will always be of interest to me. It is about public health.
Should it be mandatory that abortion clinics have routine inspections is most definitely a public interest question. If it isn't happening, then the policy needs changed.
What is infanticide? Does it occur only after birth or does it occur when the umbilical cord is cut prior to birth to guarantee the would-be-viable infant is stillborn?
Some things are not all about politics.
But, I continued to re-post the poll due to Dave's and Yeah's confusion about what it stated.
If you want to be a Don Quixote, tilting at windmills in a hopeless cause, that's your right.

These are the elected representatives of you nitwits. Notice the 'R'
next to their names?? Folks like you and Dumbwaiter can call them rino's all you want, but the fact is, they're elected Repugnants.

Voices of the future?? That leaves you out. You are a voice of the distant past, living on Social Security and Medicare, wasting your life 24/7 on Topix making a complete fool of yourself with your outdated racism, mysogyny, hatred for all things American.

The right to keep what you've earned isn't greed, it's our founding principle and the typical billionaire puts more into our economy than ten thousand typical Obama voters.
Billionaires do not pay their fair share. That is a FACT.

If you want to keep what you've earned and not support this country through taxes, move.

The Cayman Islands is really the perfect place for you. No income, capital gains, sales or mandatory social security taxes and employers must provide a pension plan for all workers even expatriates like yourself.

You certainly wouldn't be happy in an oil rich country like Qatar, Kuwait, Oman, Bahrain etc. even though they have no income or capital gains taxes you'd still have to pay into their social security program and, God forbid, we know that's not acceptable.

USA owes 16.
Billionaires do not need tax cuts. They don't deserve them. They made all that dough with tax rates as is. Then complain tax rates are too high? When?
When they were able to amass huge fortunes with tax rates historically higher than now?
Bush/Cheney: "we are due"
So they handed out the US TREASURY TO ALREADY RICH PEOPLE.
During wartime.
Dumb that.
I say cut taxes for average folks who will spend it now.
Raise taxes on rich people who already have everything and can afford it.
Our economy got strong because of a strong middle, buying stuff everyday in large numbers.
We have always had a few rich at the top owning most of the pie, they don't spend enough to drive a large economy. HOARDERS!
Word association:
Republican. Greedy.
Republican. Idiot.
Republican. Hypocrite.
The New KKK has double since Obama has been elected, Libs are KKK every day, and twice on Sundays.

Obama has done more to enslave blacks, Klan Parent Hood is killing off blacks, the Klu Klux Klan loves a half white ass Obama, the KKK would have committed suicide if a rich black man Herman Cain was elected

Oh Karma,
Cummings released a Progressive squirrel.
No one but him and a few who like to chase squirrels believes this is the final say on the investigation.
Your radical slurs makes your argument whether legit or not look pity and partisan.
of course the difference between what Cummings released, Shafer's ENTIRE testimony and what Issa released, partial transcripts of unidentified people.....who's the partisan lackey here

obviously, you would know.

I have an idea, why doesn't Issa just have open hearing, rather than secret hearings Of course having open hearings wouldn't allow him to release partial transcripts.

Cummings gave Issa a chance, Issa didn't release the transcripts

straw-man fallacy :-)

A straw man or straw person, also known in the

UK as an Aunt Sally,

is a type of argument and is an informal fallacy based on misrepresentation of an opponent's position.[3] To "attack a straw man" is to create the illusion of having refuted a proposition by replacing it with a superficially similar yet unequivalent proposition (the "straw man"), and to refute it, without ever having actually refuted the original position.[3][4] This technique has been used throughout history in polemical debate, particularly in arguments about highly charged, emotional issues.

Was Gosnell convicted of murder or performing abortions?
You are still missing the point. The Gosnell trial brought up issues with abortion and may be related to the public shift on abortion sentiments.

It was about the trial and public awareness of abortion issues and problems not the conviction.

One of the things brought up in the trial was the failure of PA to inspect Abortion clinics for over something like 8 years. The Gosnell clinic was filthy and unsafe.
