You said that the law would move the clinics into hospitals which is not what the law states.

I agree and should be treated as any other contract the participants of which bound only by the ability to enter into a contract with informed consent.
If you want to get married, go to a church.
If you want to restrict marriage to one man and one woman that should be within the laws of that church.
Its simple, see no reason at all to involve the government in the cultural/religious nature of marriage.
That would include division of property, alimony, child custody, etc, all decided in advance by contract.

Placing reasonable limits on the length of the pregnancy at the time of abortion extends beyond the Christian right and includes many people who are pro-choice.
So? Does it pass the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment?

What similar procedural restrictions are placed on procedures performed on men?

My position isn't going to change from leaving personal decisions to the person, in this case, for as long as the fetus is inviable outside the womb.

In the marriage concept, one may work while the other stays home to take care of the house & children. Sometimes they take jobs that fit into these duties & thereby do not make much money.
It only makes sense that the social security account becomes part of the marital property.
That's fine if a contractual arrangement in the event of divorce, but when the qualified individual dies, the benefits should end.

Unfortunately, there is no Social Security account with any guaranteed value, so a contract arrangement may not be legal. You can't agree to share something that doesn't exist.

But that was the entire issue with DOMA and the court suit, to gain government benefits for which the person would not be otherwise entitled.
Galt recognizes your consistency on this issue.
Right which only further illustrates the problem with having government in the marriage business.

Why don't we let the medical community decide that instead of a bunch of Texas right-wing legislators?
Better yet, why don't we let the patient decide if they want to go to a hospital, a surgical clinic, or a walk-in clinic.
Can't do that, that'd be the less government approach y'all are so offended by.
So you want a bunch of Kermit Gosnells deciding how many babies to kill for the paycheck huh. Yes let the butcher decide.
Let the people decide huh. Like prop 8 in California??? A queer judge living with another man made that decision. Next the liberal justices that brought us obama death care followed up.
It should be up to the people but now days that isn't happening.
The people of Texas are basically against abortion except as a result of rape, incest or if the mother's health is in danger.
Thank G-d for the Texas legislators who aren't afraid to stand for what is right.
I guess you are in favor of killing un-born babies innocent of anything other than having a destructive mother.

No, I never said that. You're welcome to go look.

You can't be fooled when you're constantly confused.

I think the barometer here is that Galt has been keeping up with the conversation I was having with HIM before you interposed yourself. Now, everyone is welcome to post here, I'm just saying you're the only one who appears confused.

The defeat of Proposition 8 should alarm civil libertarians instead of causing them to celebrate.

Essentially the Court is saying that the executive branch of government can invalidate any law passed by the legislature simply by refusing to defend it.

This is true. So the government probably shouldn't be in the retirement savings business either.

Can you explain this to me? it seems insane.
The Obama administration has scaled back another of its key healthcare rules, delaying a requirement that verifies the income levels of those seeking taxpayer subsidies until after the 2014 midterm elections.

Instead, the new insurance marketplaces operated by states and the District of Columbia will take the consumer's word that they qualify for the subsidies, The Washington Post reported.

The announcement came on Friday without fanfare with the Department of Health and Human Services publishing the notification in the Federal Register.

Verification plans for the taxpayer subsidies won't go into effect until 2015 for those earning about $45,000 to purchase health insurance, or earning $15,000 to qualify for Medicaid in the District and 23 participating states.

*so are they just going to give out subsidies for the hell of it? or what?
