Please note that they are NOT stating the abortion clinics should not operate at the same standard of care as other facilities.
Their objection is to having board certify participating physicians as many of these same physicans that offer abortion also offer other OB/Gyn care which may include the use of a hospital this complaint seems to lack legitimacy.
That post wasn't about "standards of care", it was about admitting privileges.

They're not trying to apply standards evenly in TX, they're trying to force abortions into surgical centers while not requiring the same for other surgical procedures routinely performed in clinics. I asked Nobama about this several pages ago, he never answered.

Sorry Carol, but your never ending attempt at trying to show an open mind is failing miserable. Now explain to us all again how a young man was walking along minding his own business eating a bag of skittles and was pursued against orders from the police to not do that became a victim of a vigilante wanna be cop? Please spare us the young mans history before that as it has absolutely nothing to do with that event. By the way would you consider a young boy walking down the street eating a candy bar drinking a soda suspicious. Those words were obviously a reason to show Zimmerman's racism and justify his aggression. The man is guilty as hell.
Sorry Casper, but your never ending attempt at trying to show an open mind is failing miserable when you make up stories about the supposed events that night.

He was eating a bag of Skittles and drinking a Soda? Were you there to observe this?

It was Arizona Iced Tea, azzhole. Not Soda. Later in your post, you call it a 'candy bar'.

He did not disobey orders from the cops. Read much?

He wasn't a young boy, either. You're Media-Gullible.

No racism was expressed by Zimmerman that night but only by the boy complaining about a creepy-ass cracka.

If I found you leading the lynch mob with the rope in your hand, I'd stamp my feet and scare you away, boy.

That isn't what your quote states

"THA agrees that women should receive high-quality care and that physicians should be held accountable for acts that violate their license. However, a requirement that physicians who perform one particular outpatient procedure, abortion, be privileged at a hospital is not the appropriate way to accomplish these goals. A hospital’s granting privileges to a physician serves to assure the hospital that the physician has the appropriate qualifications to provide services to patients in the hospital. Thousands of physicians operate clinics and provide services in those clinics but do not have hospital admitting privileges. Requiring a hospital to grant admitting privileges to physicians who do not provide services inside the hospital is time-consuming and expensive for the hospital and does not serve the purpose for which privileges were intended; rather, the Texas Medical Board is the appropriate agency to address whether physicians are delivering appropriate care to patients, as the TMB regulates all physicians. Hospitals should not be required to assume responsibility for the qualifications of physicians who do not practice in the hospital."

Texas Hospital Association’s
Statement of Opposition to Section 2 of the Committee Substitute for Senate Bill 5 by Glenn Hegar
Relating to the regulation of abortion procedures, providers, and facilities; providing penalties
The Texas Hospital Association, on behalf of its 450 member hospitals, offers the following statement in opposition to Section 2 of the Committee Substitute for Senate Bill 5.
Hospitals Should Not Be Required to Grant Privileges to Physicians Who Do Not Practice in the Hospital.
THA agrees that women should receive high-quality care and that physicians should be held accountable for acts that violate their license.

http://www.tha.org/HealthCareProviders/Advoca... (special%20session).pdf
The implication is that hospitals want nothing to do with abortion clinics and consider many of their physicians to be less than qualified.

So, how do these hospitals feel about botched abortions being dumped on their emergency rooms because the abortion clinics lack proper personnel, facilities, and equipment?

Why not perform abortions in hospital outpatients clinics, where all the physicians already have admitting privileges?

Less government doesn't mean no government-how do you keep confusing this.
Every government in the world has marriage laws. The onus is on you to explain why they should be abandoned. Why it isn't a function of government.
Because I obviously disagree with what you consider the legitimate function of government. The social compact empowers the government with the authority to defend life, liberty, and property. If you can't frame a government action within that context I disagree with it. It applies differently from the Federal level down to the local. If your community wants the government to sanction marriage that's fine with me provided its within the equal protection clause; I don't have to be a member of that community. However, the further you get from the community level the more restricted the government must be otherwise you end up with a federal government like the one you constantly bitch about on here.

Better for you to tell me what legitimate interest government has in marriage beyond its contractual nature that is consistent with the right's "professed" desire for less government.
So are you in favor of government granting contractual rights in marriage, or not?

There is plenty of hypocrisy coming from the other side which you appear not to notice.
You also keep confusing reducing the cost of government with NO government which is a stance NO one is taking.
You keep making straw men which makes you the dishonest person here.
Ahh, you goobers with your hypocritical "less government" keep me plenty busy. Some particular outrages by the left get me to post about them here but the left hasn't been the side touting "less government" when they increase it.

I would prefer a mostly NO government but understand that most people aren't like me and are dependent on some measure of government. All I would ask would be that the government act within the confines of the Constitution, it IS the law and adherence to it is the government's foundation for legitimacy.

This does not disprove what I stated.
Talk about straw men, you need to support your original claim that they were supporting the Muslim Brotherhood.

You are misguided by your own prejudice viewpoint.
Using your above logic, using today's posts only, I could assume most Progressives use personal attacks rather than logic.
Therefore all Progressives lack logic or are truly the Looney Left.
The rest of comment did make sense; however, you want to call all who want to reduce government deficits and spending as Tea Party This would make the Majority of Americans Tea Party members.
All Progressives (communists) use personal attacks rather than logic. They fear the Tea Party as they jeopardize the liberals chances at stealing from other people who actually work.

Pretty sure I'm to blame for the obsession about Fox since I happen to like O'Reilly and haven't been shy about saying so.
Been an O'Reilly Factor fan for more than a decade though - almost since the very beginning.
Don't watch much other Fox shows either - maybe once in a while or when it's a special event being covered.
I can't say much about things Fox because I'm not there but from what I read about O'Reilly, he is extremely popular.

And those snippets of him on YouTube are appealing:]
