Says the person who claimed the law was forcing the clinics into hospitals which was a total misstatement.
Forcing abortions out of clinics and into hospitals and surgical clinics.

Sheesh!

You know as well as I do this subterfuge serves only to advance the christian right's opposition to abortion. Not even worth arguing over.
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.

<quoted text>Aunt Patty? And many checked into the Catholic Services homes such as the Florence Crittenden Homes where they'd give birth to babies already promised to good Catholic families.
The key was privacy-secrecy, the parents would not be shamed and the young lady could marry and "live happily ever after" with some toad that believed that he picked a cherry.
Girls off to college or those who moved to larger cities for better work were seeking abortions and many were paying for that mistake with their lives___the statistics of that era cannot be ignored, women were being butchered and/or suffering horrible after effects from chemical cocktails.
It astounds me that the subject remains such a hot topic after all these years.
It appears that the rightwing wishes to return to those days; the girls who could afford it and had family connections were admitted to hospitals for "d & c's" and everyone kept quiet about it. The poor ones bled to death. Now they want to criminalize everything; if a woman self induces her abortion, they'll charge her with murder. With the personhood bill, the egg has more rights than the host. These people are sick in the head.

The contract terms of a "marriage" should be spelled out in writing in advance and should not require any arbitration.
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.
Yeah

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.
It's a good thing you use personal attacks son.

That about sums you up quite well.

Until then it remains as the law. Isn't that your claim when the right objects to a ruling. Double standards again?

Why should government give Social Security benefits to someone who has never worked or contributed to the system just by virtue of "marriage"?
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.

ObamaKKKare makes abortion free for all, rich or poor, so your argument is worthless.

Makes it a little tough for you when you throw your best insults, built all those straw men and in the end-I am not fooled in the least by these idiotic attempts.

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